Launched in 1990 and nicknamed “King of the Hill”, the ZR1 was an immediate hit, the first American world-class supercar. The ZR1 used an all-aluminum 4-cam V8 developed by Lotus and hand assembled by Mercury Marine. This was the powerplant everyone was hoping for as it delivered 375 horsepower. In early March 1990, the ZR1 would set a record for the highest 24 hour-5,000-mile land-speed by going over a speed of 175 mph (282 km/h).
The Corvette C4’s iconic shape was the second longest running behind the C3. This later production version benefits from countless refinements over the earlier models, but with the same great look and character.
This stunning example - 1 of 502 produced - has had just one owner from new and presents in exquisite condition. It has covered a mere 8,000 miles and has benefitted from many years of care in the hands of an enthusiastic owner. Always garaged and properly serviced, this classic Corvette presents in flawless condition featuring excellent, unmarked Black Rose Metallic paint with no scratches, scuffs, or chips to be found. Likewise, the Black leather interior is outstanding and looking showroom fresh.
This ZR1 is extremely well-equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission, Solar Glass, Roof Package, and six-way passenger power seat. The clean Carfax report backs this up as an accident-free car with outstanding original paint and bodywork. Following the condition of the car, the sale includes all documents and manuals provided by the factory, including Window Sticker, Owner’s Manual, Sales Brochure, “Music System Sampler” cassette.
Few cars at this price point can match the Corvette ZR1 for its outstanding performance and style. We are pleased to offer this exquisite, very low mileage example, box-fresh and ready for enjoyment.
