So this week in Dubai, a car has been revealed that is not only the most powerful Chevrolet ever built, but also the fastest car General Motors have ever produced! It's called the Corvette ZR1, and it is stunning.

Powered by a 6.2L V8 supercharged engine codenamed LT5, the ZR1 has a supercharger that is 52% bigger than the Corvette ZO6, and it's more efficient. Chevrolet claims the engine will take the ZR1 up to 210MPH and will put a 0-60MPH time of in the region of 3 seconds, but nothing has been confirmed.
Owners will get the option of a seven speed manual, or an eight speed paddle shift gearbox. They will also have the option to go for the High or Low Wing package. The High Wing package will do what it says on the tin, add a large, adjustable spoiler to increase downforce. Your top speed will be affected with this package though. It's the Low Wing package, that features a lower spoiler that allows you to achieve that 210MPH claimed by Chevrolet.
Pricing is yet to be announced and sales on the car are expected to begin early next year. Unfortunately, this one looks like it won't be available to the U.K. market!
