Starting at a crisp $119,995, and $123,995 if you like your ladies topless, Chevrolet unveiled it's latest supercar legacy in it's timless line of Corvettes, with it's new 2019 Corvette ZR1.

Unlike the rolling trend of enviromentally friendly e-cars and fuel efficient hybrids, the ZR1's hand-assembled LT5 small block 6.2L supercharged V8 engine is about as opposite as you can get in today's spectrum of vehicles.  Seriously, this car couldn't be more environmentally un-friendly if they tried.  If this car was friends with the environment on Facebook, it would UN-FRIEND it.  Most likely due to the environments passive aggressive footprint posts.

That being said, ZR1 does not disappoint American muscle addicts with it's 775 horsepower and 715 lb-ft. of torque, with over 600 lb.-ft. of torque available from 2200 rpm to redline.

It contains the largest Eaton supercharger to date, delivering a peak boost of pressure of 13 psi and 52% larger displacement than the LT4 super charger.   Chevy boasts that it's high-flow efficiency 4-lobe design rotors make it the most effective at high speeds.

Our only complaint?  We would still prefer a differnet color than the blazing tangerine gracing the showroom floor.  No matter how super your car is, orange and black still radiate great pumpkin.  Thankfully, we believe it also comes in black.

Find Quality Touch Up Paint

Order touch up paint on-line!

All touch up paint is not created equal! The generic paints you buy at auto part stores will likely NOT match your vehicle’s paint exactly. Believe it or not, even the OEM dealers usually stock “close enough” colors. We recommend PaintScratch.com since their high quality paint is freshly made, they custom mix each order for you upon receipt, and they offer a color match guarantee.
