One of just 104 made in Polo Green Metallic, this 3 owner 1990 ZR-1
is in excellent condition and has been well maintained.
The Corvette ZR-1 is a rear-drive sports car powered by a 32-valve,
5.7-liter, port-fuel-injected V-8 engine with an aluminum block and
aluminum heads. The engine was designed by GM's Group Lotus
Division and built under contract by Mercury Marine in Oklahoma, a
facility known for high-muscle aluminum engines.
The LT5 32-valve V-8 engine has two camshafts on each of its
aluminum heads. Maximum horsepower achieved at 6200 rpm is 380. The
torque curve shows a maximum of 370 pound-feet at 4200 rpm.
Staggered width 17? aluminum wheels are wrapped in 275/40 front and
315/35 rear Nitto NT555 Extreme ZR tires. All ZR-1 models were
equipped with the FX3 Selective Ride suspension package which
featured electronically-adjustable Bilstein shock absorbers.
Braking is handled by anti-lock disc brakes at all four
Amenities include power windows, locks, and mirrors, as well as
automatic climate control, cruise control, and an aftermarket
Kenwood head unit with SiriusXM and Bluetooth connectivity. The
removed Delco Bose Gold Series stereo with CD and cassette players
is included in the sale.
From Car and Driver: "The engine's performance is best described as
otherworldly. Its power just plain warps the mind. The ZR-1 has the
ability to take you from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and from a stop
to 100 in 10.4 seconds. We also recorded a 0-to-150-mph time of a
tick under half a minute. Top speed, for the adventurous, is a
sizzling 175 miles per hour... behind the engine is a six-speed
manual transmission that's as sweet as anything mechanical you're
likely to lay a hand on... Zahnradfabrik Friedrichshafen AG,
usually referred to simply as ZF, designed the six-speed
transmission especially for the Corvette. The fully synchronized
unit derives much of its slick operation from an internal-rail
shift mechanism and a hydraulically actuated, 280mm-diameter
Maintenance and repairs under recent ownership include replacement
of the fuel injectors, secondary vacuum pump, alternator,
serpentine belt, battery, clutch master and slave cylinders, airbag
control module and all fluids. Additionally the pop-up headlights
were rebuilt and outer door seals were replaced. Receipts come with
the car. Minor paint blemishes are visible on the right front
fender, front bumper, and fuel door.
This ZR-1 runs and drives strong, and given the low miles would
make a great addition to any collection.
