This 1990 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 represents the debut year for the now legendary super sports car. And while you'll enjoy the well-preserved look and red-on-red factory presentation, don't forget to be on the lookout for investments in extra power.
<br><br> This desirable classic has averaged less than 1,800 miles annually. That's why the Bright Red paint has the kind of gloss and shine that will draw compliments even before you tell people this is believed to be the factory-applied finish. And this is a coupe that you're absolutely going to show off. The moment the sunlight hits the bright body, you really see the exceptional fit and finish that comes from a car that has been treated with the proper respect. There were instant identifiers for the "King of the Hill" like the convex rear end and square-ish quad taillights that were exclusive to this new version in 1990. So this is the ultimate expression of the ultimate C4 for both style and speed. You see it right down to those special later alloys that were exclusive to the ZR-1 as well as the special wider rear set to put more rubber on the road.
<br><br> We know you'll love taking the targa top out and sharing this one with the world. It's not only because the interior is exceptionally well-preserved, but also the color shows off that this one is a true red-blooded American classic inside and out. While this is a full performance machine, the ZR-1 also costs nearly double the base Corvette, so they made sure to load it up with all the best features. That means power windows, power locks, power steering, electric rear defogger, and a premium AM/FM/CD stereo w/cassette by Bose. There are also provisions for automatic climate control (the A/C may need servicing to perform optimally.) You even have proper modern safety with a driver's airbag and anti-lock brakes. The leather sports seats have terrific bolstering, and you and your passenger get to power adjust them to the ideal position. The leather-wrapped steering wheel feels terrific in your hands, and the stick shift is exactly where you want your right hand to be. And of course, there's nothing cooler than having the power key module on the center console so that even your passenger knows when it's time to unleash the beast.
<br><br> The LT5 engine still knows how to draw a crowd today. So when you lift the whole front end to show off that unique and tidy presentation, you'll love being able to tell people it's the numbers-matching motor. With the multi-valve setup developed by Lotus, and built by the sturdy masters at Mercury Marine, this was a unique motor the likes of which we might never see again. The 5.7-liter 32-valve V8 was rated at 380 hp from Chevrolet, but this one has a secret. It looks stock, but we have a receipt for over $5k invested in upgrades in 2015. It included a ported intake plenum, ported injector housing, and a nice set of headers. It makes for an even meaner ZR-1, and we have the dyno sheet to prove it! So it's great to be in full control of this enhanced powerhouse with the original ZF six-speed manual transmission. The ZR-1s package also upgraded the car to an adjustable sport suspension and powerful four-wheel disc brakes. It's the kind of all-around awesome driving package that we know you won't be able to resist adding the ultra-low odometer.
<br><br> The sale comes complete with maintenance records, build receipts, and the dyno sheet. This is the all-red coupe that proves it's out for blood. And of course, it's also awesome to own a first-year ZR-1. So don't miss out on this total package classic. Call today!!!
