The Model: Chevrolet swung for the fences when they developed the ZR-1. It would be their attempt to dominate the sports car market, and it did take leaps and bounds in modernizing their flagship sports car. The C4 ushered in modern suspension, tuned port fuel injection and a more subdued shape with celebrated aerodynamics that offered a fresh American Sports Car from the dated lines of the C3.


Partnering with the Lotus Group, the Corvette folks developed what would be the heart of the ZR-1, the all-new LT-5.  The wildly modern engine design was powerful and reasonably efficient with 16 injectors, which at full blast delivered 405 HP to the 275/40ZR17s on the 11-inch wheels. In order to house those extra meaty tires, the designers gave the ZR-1 its most distinguishing feature by widening the car.  Suspension upgrades were also made, making the ZR-1 handle as well as it accelerated.  It should be noted that its MSRP price tag was nearly double from the base model and customers were known to have paid in excess of $20,000 above MSRP to get their hands on a ZR-1

The Car: This low mileage example, that will soon be one of the most sought after of the modern Corvette, is covered in its well-maintained factory red paint. The interior is a matching red leather that only shows the gentlest of use.  Both the inside and outside of this rare Corvette have been well preserved as a low production number car should be. The LT-5 that provides the fun is also well maintained and running perfectly.  Mated to the 6-speed transmission, this drivetrain is perfect for cruising the streets on Saturday night.  The low-mile nature of this Corvette makes the decision to continue to preserve it or take it out and stretch its legs difficult. What isn’t difficult is pulling the trigger and adding it to your collection.
