THE CORVETTE ZR-1

The ZR-1 was the most audacious Corvette to date when it debuted in 1990. As opposed to just being an engine option as were previous high performance Corvettes, the ZR-1 was a complete car with Corvette's first and only overhead cam engine - developed jointly with Lotus Cars in England - plus a wider body, special extra-wide Goodyear tires on the rear, and a special rear fascia with squared taillights.

Without question, the soul of the new ZR-1 was its all-aluminum 32-valve quad overhead cam V8 that put out 375 bhp and 370 lb.-ft. of torque. It was an engineering masterpiece that would propel the ZR-1 to 60 mph in just over four seconds and would register a top speed of 175 mph. The engine was co-developed by GM and Lotus and was built at a Mercury Marine plant in Stillwater, Oklahoma, a plant known for its precise aluminum machining capabilities.

The ZR-1 was unveiled at the 1989 Geneva Auto Show. Chevrolet invited media from around the world to Geneva for the occasion and then allowed a select group to drive the Corvettes from Geneva down to the walled city of Carcasonne in the southwest corner of France. Soon after, the ZR-1 owned the cover of virtually every magazine in the world, while pricing for the ZR-1 turned out to be about $30,000 more than a Corvette coupe, setting a new record for a GM passenger car. The ZR-1 enjoyed a five-year production run and was phased out in 1995.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This extremely well-preserved Corvette ZR-1 has covered a mere 1,916 miles since new at the time of cataloging and represents a unique opportunity to buy a virtually brand new 'King of the Hill' ZR-1. This car was completed in March of 1991 at the Bowling Green, Kentucky Corvette plant, having had its sophisticated, all-alloy 32-valve DOHC V8 engine assembled at the Stillwater, Oklahoma based engine plant. According to the CARFAX report on file, the ZR-1 has remained in Eastern United States since new and is offered with owner's manuals and ample paraphernalia. With factory finishes intact throughout, this delivery-mile ZR-1 must be among the finest examples extant.
