GM says that, on the racetrack, the new ZR1 is the highest-performing Vette in the nameplate's production history.

DUBAI - The King is returning, stronger than ever.

The General Motors automaker touts the Corvette as its "fastest, most powerful" production version of the vehicle ever.

"I've never driven a Corvette like this before, and nobody else has either, because there's never been one like this before", says Reuss.

Boasting a whopping 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque from its LT5 supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, the new Corvette ZR1 exceeds the output of the previous power champ in the lineup, the 650-horsepower Z06. Both of these options also come with what Chevrolet calls an "under wing" - forming the front spoiler that lies beneath the front bumper.

According to the SAE-certified testing, the Corvette ZR1 packs 755 horsepower, or 563 kW.

In a first for GM, the engine also gets direct and port fuel injection, as opposed to the Z06's direct injection only. All of that power is harnessed with a seven-speed manual transmission, or drivers can opt for an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission.

King's commute: LeBron, Cavs hop on NYC subway after shootaround
James clarified his comments during the Cavaliers' shootaround at Madison Square Garden on Monday morning. The Knicks, meanwhile, opted for French floor general Frank Ntilikina over Smith at No. 8 overall.

Automatic transmission will be available as an option on the auto for the first time. The guess is that the Corvette ZR1 will hit 60 miles per hour in under 3.0 seconds, likely comfortably so. A special carbon-fiber "halo" hood is open in the middle to clear the LT5 engine's supercharger/intercooler assembly.

Chevrolet claims a top speed of more than 210mph, although no other performance figures have been provided.

Based on the seventh-generation Corvette coupe, the ZR1 gets a reworked front bumper with larger air inlets and a small carbon fibre winglets that help generate more grip at higher speeds. With or without the ZTK there's a first-ever front underwing, as well.

If you like your 'Vettes in aggressive colors, Chevy rolled out a "Sebring Orange Design Package", which pretty much takes orange to 11. This design package also includes body-coloured brake calipers, rocker and splitter accent stripes, seat belts and stitching, as well as exclusive bronze aluminum interior trim. The nose of the ZR1, meanwhile, has been heavily redesigned to provide additional airflow for the engine and cooling systems.

The ZR1's leather seats have available microfiber inserts.
