1990 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 Coupe
Coupe Car for sale by Redline Restorations in Black Rock, Connecticut 06605
The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!
The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.
Classic Car Overview
Dubbed “King of the Hill” upon its entry into the market. This 1st-gen Corvette ZR-1 reestablished the corvette as an American high performance sports car. Trading out the former 250 hp pushrod V8 in favor of a 350cid 380 hp 5.7 liter (LT5) DOHC V8.
At launch, this engine clocked in a 0-60 time of only 4.3 seconds (we are talking 1990 here). Now able to compete with the far more expensive European competition. The ZR1 is the first iteration of corvette specifically focused through development and production on “the track”.
Partnering with LOTUS engineering, a fully owned subsidiary of GM at the time. They were tasked with joint development through-out as well as a complete redesign of both the braking and steering systems. This was key in enabling the ZR-1 to shake off a perception that the corvette was capable of only straight-line speed.
The car on offer is a pristine 6,000 mile example. Configured in Bright Red (81U) with a full black leather interior and 6 speed manual transmission (Automatic was NOT an option for the ZR-1). The black leather bucket seats conform to the driver and are extremely comfortable. The 17” aluminum “saw blade” wheels are free of any curb rash, new tires are recommended in the near future. An aftermarket audio system has been added, all original audio equipment will be included with the sale.
Only 2000 units were produced for the initial unveiling of the car in 1990. Ninety five percent of which were pre-sold, making this an immediate collector! Own a historical piece of American muscle history. It's fun and you won't even remember you have to wear a mask once the engine starts.
