GM revealed the auto at a studio sound stage on Sunday, and it will be featured at the Dubai Motor Show on Tuesday where it will be shown with many other six- and seven-figure luxury vehicles. General Motors has even up fitted the new Vette with something it has never used - a dual fuel injection system.

The fastest, most powerful production Corvette ever - the 755-horsepower 2019 ZR1.

"Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back", said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain, during the ZR1's Dubai, Dubai Debut.

16 - That's the number of valves the ZR1's 6.2-liter V-8 has. The LT5 delivers the highest output ever for a Chevrolet production vehicle, thanks in part to a new, more-efficient intercooled supercharger system that offers 52 percent more displacement than the Z06's LT4 supercharger. There's also direct injection and port injection for the first time, with traditional overhead valve push-rod cam gear, with two valves per cylinder. All of that power is harnessed with a seven-speed manual transmission, or drivers can opt for an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission. It's the first time the ZR1 has offered two-pedal driving, but don't groan just yet: GM claims the 650-hp Z06 hits 60 miles per hour and runs the quarter-mile in 2.95 and 10.95 seconds, respectively, with the automatic.

Okay, so the Corvette ZR1 isn't in that territory. The front fascia's design is more than cosmetic; it's created to channel air to four new radiators, bringing the total number of heat exchangers to 13 on the auto. The new version of Corvette will feature a carbon fiber hood. To rectify this, Chevrolet has added an additional four radiators to the ZR1. With a top speed quoted at "over 210 mph", they're not wrong. The high wing generates 60-percent more downforce than the optional Z07 Performance Package on the Corvette Z06. All models also feature a Chevrolet-first, downforce-enhancing front underwing. Both of the rear wings are attached to the car's chassis - something Chevrolet claims will increase strength and stability.

A new Sebring Orange Design Package will make it virtually impossible to ignore the new Corvette ZR1.

Another option will be a Sebring Orange design package that combines Sebring orange paint with matching brake calipers and accent stripes for the splitter and rocker and, inside, orange seat belts, stitching, and bronze aluminum interior trim.
