Every red-blooded gearhead knows about the vaunted C4 ZR-1, and the details of its creation have become the stuff of legend. Although Chevys Lotus-infused flagship basically doubled the price of a standard Corvette, it delivered world class driving dynamics for a fraction of what comparative, and decidedly overrated, Ferraris and Lamborghinis cost. It showed the Detroit automakers that a market for ultimate performance cars definitely existed and, more importantly, it showed the world that America was definitely capable of competing with Europes best performance brands. Today, we fondly reference cars like this pristine 94 ZR-1 as the platform that broke the ice for killer American superstars like Chevrolets own C6 ZR1 and SRTs Viper GTS. And, as expected, this fanatically kept, all-original survivor is as crisp as the day it rolled off Bowling Greens storied assembly line. If youve been searching for an awesome late-model Vette thats fun, reliable and equipped with top-notch pedigree, youve found your next car!

With todays basic history lesson out of the way, Ill jump right in to describing every aspect of this 8,400 mile time capsule. The cars vivid Admiral Blue paint, which is topped by a durable clearcoat shell, perfectly accentuates its lightweight body. That bodys composite panels display precise fit and excellent finish under ancillary hardware that functions well and seals great. And by the looks of this Corvettes slick finish, Im fairly certain it has never seen daily driver duty. In fact, its very unlikely the cars glossy, wet-look hue has ever felt anything more aggressive than a soft detailing cloth. And when that level of ownership is combined with Chevrolets top notch build quality, it creates one seriously capable sports car thatll show well and absolutely blister the road!

Walking around this coupe, its easy to appreciate how gently late-model C4s have aged. Nearly two decades after they debuted, the cars sharp lines still represent the Corvette brand incredibly well. At the front its bright blue body, a clean combination of halogen running lamps and amber turn signals frame a stamped Corvette tag panel thats free of chips or damage of any kind. Above that tag panel, a long hood, which mimics the cowl induction units found on classic Chevrolets, features a fresh black Corvette emblem thats complete with a pristine mix of silver checkers, black checkers and a red Chevy bowtie. At the sides of that emblem, the cars profile carries the same coke bottle shape of older Corvettes, except whittled down by years of gained aerodynamic knowledge. Embedded in that knowledge, a ring of body-color trim perfectly complements clear cornering lamps, traditional Corvette gills, sinister ZR-1 emblems, satin black door handles and body-matched mirrors. Inside those mirrors, original, dark-tinted glass reflects a small center high mount stop lamp and tinted targa roof. And at the back of the cars body, four trademark Corvette tail lights frame a broad CORVETTE script, vertical reverse lamps and original, square exhaust tips.

The aluminum LT5 V8 found under the hood of this virtually new Corvette is a modern work of automotive art. Originally intended to be a simple set of 16-valve cylinder heads atop a basic Chevrolet small block, the Lotus engineers assigned to the project quickly realized there was no cost-effective way to build such a motley beast. Instead, they designed a world class V8 which shared basic dimensions with Chevrolets storied small block, but exactly zero interchangeable components. The result is a 32-valve, 4-cam powerhouse that features a trick dual-path induction system, 405 horsepower and 385 lb./ft. of torque, all without any help from fuel supplements or any kind of forced induction. The aesthetically pleasing piece was assembled by Mercury Marine, whose specialization in aluminum casting won them the contract. And when fitted under the Corvettes clamshell hood, it became an ultra-performance world record holder. Theres no mistaking the big engines unique intake and sculpted cam covers, which are emblazoned with the Corvette logo, for something any less than fantastic. And, more beautifully finished than any engine since the 1930s, the LT5 in this ZR-1 is preserved in 100% showroom-fresh condition. Dont worry; the lightweight mill has definitely been operated enough to stay healthy, with its fluids being changed regularly. And nothing, from the bottom of its spotless hood to the top of its clean oil pan, shows any significant signs of wear and tear.

Behind that hot small block, a proven ZF 6-speed distributes power to a factory Corvette rear end. That combination works great in conjunction with the motors ability to shut down half its intake runners, making this Vette plenty quick off the line and a joy to cruise on the highway ...For more information please call the seller.
