Vehicle Description

Near-mint ZR-1 with less than 30k miles; one very meticulous owner. AutoCheck certified accident-free with an AutoCheck Score of 84 vs 51-69 norm.

Tires and brakes are at about 40%-50% remaining life. Never tracked nor abused. Flawless but for a half dozen or so pinpoint nicks on the front nose. Two removeable tops. This car is consigned and is garaged near Laguna Seca Raceway (between Monterey and Salinas, CA).When the C4 Corvette was first offered in 1984 Chevrolet gave us was the best Corvette the world had ever seen. The car had new styling, a new interior with a cool video-game-like digital dashboard, a V8 engine under the hood and remarkable handling. The handling was so good that when introduced, the C4 Vette was the absolute best-handling car in the world, capable of 1.0 G on the skid pad. Horsepower was 205; This would change over the years as the engine would increase to 230 horsepower in 1985 and 240 in 1987.But the real surprise was the launch of the ZR-1 in 1990. The ZR-1 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. Only a couple of Ferraris and a Porsche were faster. The ZR-1 wheels were 11-inches wide with 193 mph Z-rated 17-inch tires. To fit those tires, the rear of the car was widened three inches, which necessitated a different rear clip, doors and rocker panels.The ZR-1 was called King of the Hill. Larry Merow, operator of The ZR-1 Registry: As far as I am concerned, the ZR-1 is the best sports car ever made. This high priest of ZR-1 enthusiasm owns three ZR-1s, including a '93 green/black model that he says is the only one made in that combination that year. About 15 % of the Registry's 1850 members own more than one ZR-1. The ZR-1 was unlike any Corvette any American car ever made, and in concert with its status as the most expensive production Chevy ever, it was a rare bird in the nation's high-performance aviary. Early enthusiasm for ZR-1s had some people paying over $100k to get one.The 1992 original MSRP was $69,545 (about double a base Corvette); the ZR-1 option was $31,683 of that. Only 502 ZR-1 were produced in 1992 and 448 built in each of the cars three remaining model years. So, this car is fairly rare - especially for a Corvette.According to Hagerty Valuation Tools the value of this model is up and average of about 35% since the beginning of 2021 to these levels as/of September 2021: #1 Concours $87,100, #2 Excellent $63,400, #3 Good $38,600, #4 Fair $17,600.
