This is a real-deal, first-year C4 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1. And when a full-black and well-documented 375 hp coupe is offered for such an affordable price, well then, you know this deal might not be around long enough for you to finish reading the details.
The Corvette has always been America's version of the European sports car, but the ZR-1 truly merged this attitude. It went to finishing school with the racing masters at Lotus in England, and you could instantly tell this was a special car. Back in 1990, the convex rear end and square-ish quad taillights were exclusive to the "King of the Hill." Plus, the winder fenders gave this a more aggressive stance. And because this was the first year for the ultimate Corvette (it cost nearly double of the standard car) its collectibility has been firmly established. This is a factory all-black car, and that's always desirable on the vintage car market. The odometer does reflect the car's full actual mileage, and so you will find signs of use. But as you can see from the pictures, the sharp-edge styling of this C4 remains quite attractive. And those sawblade wheels look particularly nice. So while the value price keeps room in your budget for any improvements/upgrades you may want to make, Corvette collectors also know the value of having a clean and complete car in what shows all signs to be its factory-applied black.
The factory-correct black interior looks great against the black exterior. But you can tell from its quality condition that it didn't spend too much time with targa roof out to showcase this very aggressive total package. The ZR-1 is meant to be a true driver's car, that's why the leather sports seats power adjust to your perfect position; the gauges are the perfect mix of analog and digital; and the shifter perfectly falls into your right hand. More than just the ultimate sports car, this is also a terrific luxury coddler. That's because this classic comes loaded with features like power windows, power locks, alarm system, cruise control, provisions for air conditioning, and an AM/FM/CD/cassette Bose stereo. There are even provisions for factory air conditioning (it likely needs a recharge to blow cold again.) Because this is a modern classic, there are also great modern safety features like a driver airbag and anti-lock brakes.
The LT5 motor was developed by Lotus, and built by the sturdy masters at Mercury Marine. That level of additional work created a unique motor - the likes of which we might never see again. This 5.7-liter 32-valve fuel-injected V8 was rated at 375 hp, and it's paired to a smooth-shifting six-speed manual transmission for ideal control. A supercar-level motor like this deserves the upgraded adjustable suspension that was part of the ZR-1 package. Plus, this whole car is quite stock, it is also built for driving fun. That's why there are a few subtle upgrades, like the Billy Boat exhaust and drilled & slotted rotors on the four-wheel disc brakes.
The sale comes with the right paperwork. It includes a reproduction window sticker, reproduction build sheet, owner's manual, and warranty card. Even the owner's kit is still wrapped in cellophane! So when such a desirable ZR-1 is offered for such an affordable price, you know you need to hurry to take this supercar home. Call today!!!
