  When the new ZR1 was introduced at the 1989 Geneva Auto Show, the sports car world took notice as it was a new level of performance and technology for the Corvette. Dave McLellan, Corvette chief engineer stated "The ZR-1 makes the statement that we can do things today that no one even dreamed could be done ten or twenty years ago. We've achieved a spectacular level of performance and are still able to meet or exceed all government standards for fuel economy, safety, noise, emissions, and so on." The ZR-1 engineering team proved that Detroit can indeed run with the best of the European sports car offered by the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini. 

  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, was further developed by GM, and is built under contract by Mercury Marine in Oklahoma, a facility with more than a passing familiarity with high-muscle aluminum engines. Maximum horsepower—achieved at 6200 rpm—is 375 and the torque curve shows a maximum of 370 pound-feet at 4200 rpm. The only transmission choice was a six-speed manual. The ZR-1 can take you from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and from a stop to 100 in 10.4 seconds. Top speed, for the adventurous, was an amazing 175 miles per hour. 

  This first-year example is finished in the menacing combination of Black paint over Black leather interior and has only seen a mere 260 miles since new! Open the driver’s door and the interior is in outstanding condition for its age. Under the front bonnet, the mechanical components still wear their original factory finishes. Underneath the Corvette upon close examination, the inspection markings and tags from the assembly line are still visible. This Corvette looks like it did when it left Bowling Green in 1990!

  Documenting this special ZR1 is the window sticker, bill of sale, manuals, two keys, wheel lock kit, Corvette Music System Sampler, special Corvette ratchet, photos when the car was new and more. 

  The C4 ZR1 Corvette was extremely ahead of its time when it was released in 1989 and a level of innovation not usually seen from the Detroit automakers. When we reflect on important milestones in Corvette history, the C4 ZR1 represents a major leap in performance and the first time it was taken seriously by its European competitors. This example with its extremely low mileage and overall condition will serve as a benchmark car for years to come!
