Leaked: Here's the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

We're actually seeing it a little early thanks to an appearance on the front cover of vehicle and Driver's December issue, well ahead of the LA Auto Show debut we were expecting.

But most importantly, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is going to be able to shoot flames from its exhaust.

Still, we've already had a taste of the thing on track when spy footage emerged of its Nürburgring testing session. Motor Trend will be there to bring you all the details. The purported cover image and story describe a 750-horsepower, supercharged 6.2-liter brute putting out 680 pounds-feet of torque and capable of zero-to-60 miles per hour in less than 3 seconds, with a 210-mph top speed.

Helping the 2019 Corvette ZR1 to comfortably out-handle the Z06 is standard Magnetic Ride Control, a standard Carbon Ceramic braking system, front wheels that are a half-inch wider than the rollers on the Z06.

Gold demand in third quarter weakest for eight years
The new GST regime deterred consumers, as did new anti-money laundering regulations governing jewellery retail transactions. The total gold recycled in India in the third quarter of 2017 was 26.7 tonnes from 25.7 tonnes in the same period of 2016.

0-60mph happens in under three seconds, a standing quarter-mile is dealt with in under 11 seconds, and it'll top out at 210mph.

It doesn't look like the ZR1 has a DOHC V8 despite carrying the legendary LT5 engine denomination, at least according to Corvette Blogger.

That's an awfully big rear wing, isn't it? The rear wing is adjustable by 10 degrees.

Update: Actually, a report from Corvette Blogger says the vehicle will debut in Dubai, followed by the LA Auto Show later this month.
