This 1990 ZR1 with only 127 miles on it is presented in Bright red with black interior. This time capsule ZR1 is in wonderful condition and some say that In the history of the automobile, few cars were anticipated as much as the Corvette ZR1. The rumors had been circulating for almost three years before one was available for purchase in the early 90s.

Lotus also engineered an exclusive air-management system that allowed the engine to shut off eight of the 16 fuel injectors and intake runners when the motor was at part throttle. At full-throttle the ZR1 developed 375 hp. Having nowhere to produce the new engine, GM farmed out the project to Mercury Marine a marine engine manufacturer located in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The Lotus company also had a hand in developing the ZR
