General Motors debuted the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 on Sunday for the Dubai International Motor Show. Chevrolet had previously released a teaser video of the new top-performing Corvette on social media amid online reports that the December issue of Car and Driver may have accidentally leaked images and information on the car, including its reported 750-hp output.

Based on the images and previous spy photos of the Corvette ZR1, it features several more aggressive design features than the Corvette Z06 — the current top Corvette model. The most noticeable differences are a more sculpted hood, larger lower air intake grilles above a more prominent splitter and a massive rear spoiler.

Previous interior photos of the car showed that it would be offered with an automatic transmission, most likely the 10-speed automatic co-developed by GM and Ford for rear-wheel-drive vehicles. The interior appeared on par with other C7 models but with additional carbon fiber accents.

The Corvette ZR1, which is expected to come as a hardtop and convertible, is potentially the coup de grace of the seventh-generation sports car before GM is expected to move to a mid-engine configuration for the eighth-generation Corvette.
