LT5 350 V8
This 1991 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 really hits all the high notes. It\'s a low-mileage car coming from a collector that includes terrific paperwork. And of course, the red-on-red style is irresistible. So it\'s amazing something with this much pedigree and desirability is also priced within reach.
This is a very significant car for this year. After all, 1991 was the debut of the refreshed and sleeker C4, which really resonates with a high-performance coupe like the ZR-1. And while you already know this is a true classic, the model year also makes a difference now. Crossing the 30-year threshold means this one is ready for vintage car plates in most states that offer them. So now you know this is the right year car, but what also makes the difference is that it came from a collector. That\'s how you have a coupe that has only averaged about 500 miles annually so far. And it has a well-respected look with the factory Bright Red showing off the sleek design and the ZR-1\'s special widebody fenders. The low front end, long hood, quad exhaust tips, and new buzzsaw wheels are all part of a terrific aggressive package, and a well-preserved example like this means it\'s all ready to be showcased.
The glass targa top looks good on this coupe, but we know you\'ll be leaving it off most of the time. The red leather interior is the ideal color combo for those who love an aggressive-looking sports car (after all, performance is why you want a ZR-1 in the first place, right?) And the ultra-low mileage means there was little time to wear anything in. So the full presentation is both fresh and vibrant. A car like this was built with the driver in mind. That\'s why the sports seats power adjust to your ideal position. The dash wraps around you to put everything at your fingertips, and the stick shift is in the exact right position. The leather-wrapped sports steering wheel is on a tilt column to give you a clear view to the full package of artful digital and analog gauges. But while this all-red car gets your enthusiast blood pumping, don\'t forget it\'s also loaded for everyday comfort. This includes automatic A/C climate control, power windows, power locks, alarm, driver airbag, power steering, cruise control, and a premium Bose AM/FM/CD/cassette stereo.
Another hallmark of a collector\'s car is how the engine bay is ready for primetime. And you know you\'ll be showing off the LT5 motor, because this was a true marvel of its era. Lotus re-engineered the Chevy small block. The result is big American power, but with a European four-cam multi-valve setup that makes sure it\'s always responsive. It\'s truly a special powerhouse, and so great to have the numbers-matching unit in this low-mileage classic. Of course, it\'s going to be tough to resist adding to the odometer. The separate power key lets you unleash the full fury of this 375 horsepower V8, and the six-speed manual transmission gives you the feeling of total control. And speaking of control, the adjustable fully independent suspension, four-wheel power disc brakes, and wide performance tires are a confidence-inspiring total package.
The sale comes complete with the original window sticker, owner\'s manual packet, and maintenance records. This is the ideal year, the ideal colors, and the ideal legend. So don\'t let your ideal classic slip away. Call now!
