2019 Corvette ZR1 Drive Review: 755 Horsepower of American Excess

Corvette ZR1 is an insane monster of a car, and there is no better way to send off the front-engine Corvette than that.

Big changes are on the horizon for Corvette. After all, the new C8 is coming, you know it, I know it, and General Motors knows it. It is set to be the first ever mid-engine Corvette, bringing to fruition something that Zora Arkus-Duntov, the “Father of the Corvette,” put into motion over 60 years ago.

However, despite all of the concepts and design studies that General Motors has experimented with, the Corvette has always had the engine in the front, the transmission behind it, whether it be directly, or by torque tube, and power sent to the rear wheels.
