The new 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will be the most powerful Corvette ever made with top speeds of 210 miles per hour and a 755 horsepower engine.

The sports car will be available in spring of 2018 and will challenge other popular models with new features and colors, Chevrolet said.

The Corvette is newly redesigned inside and out, with better aerodynamics and more radiators to prevent overheating as well as a roomier cockpit, a carbon fiber steering wheel, and in some models, heated seats and a Bose audio system.

GM revealed the car 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.

It is expected the 2019 Corvette ZR1 will accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than 2.95 seconds, the current speed of the Corvette Z06, Chevrolet’s previous model, CNet reported. It has 105 more horsepower and 65 pound-feet more torque than its predecessor, so it should be faster.

Automatic transmission will be available as an option on the car for the first time. Previous models have all been seven-speed manual transmission only.

“I’ve never driven a Corvette like this before, and nobody else has either, because there’s never been one like this before,” GM product chief Mark Reuss said in a statement, USA Today reported. “Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back.”
