5.7 Liter V8
If you are looking for a very correct and original ZR1, then take a close look at this one. Black on Red is always a striking color combination and this car would be a big hit at shows. Also, the C4 Corvettes set new standards of performance with improvements in handling and of course, the ZR1 engine. It\'s hard to find a better value in a sportscar purchase these days. Enjoy the ride with this low mileage, super clean example.
Known for their sleek, modern look when they were introduced, these cars still look good today. This one still wears it factory original Black paint which has obviously led a well-loved life and still looks great. The lines of the car are smooth, graceful, clean and speak for themselves. The only badges are the checkered flag-bowtie on the hood, rear quarter and back deck, and Corvette along with an ZR1 badge on the rear bumper. A tinted glass rear hatch was a nice new feature on the C4\'s that made access to the interior storage much easier, and blended perfectly with the body lines. It also makes it easy to stash the Targa roof this car came with when you want to let the sun shine in. Finish out the good looks with a set of the very desirable sawblade alloy wheels, and you have a car that you might enjoy washing almost as much as driving.
Almost. Until you open the door and set in those awesome seats. They are works of ergonomic art upholstered in rich Red leather. They are comfortable, supportive, and power adjustable in every direction possible. Sitting in the driver\'s seat feels like being in the command center of a formidable machine. Which of course, you are. A steering wheel that both tilts and telescopes will let you find that perfect position and feel. An electronic dashboard with digital display has graphics for speed, RPM, and other critical engine functions. Controls for lights, cruise, and wipers, are right at your fingertips and easy to use. Of course, there are the expected modern conveniences like power windows and locks and an automatic climate control system that will keep you comfy, as well as the factory FM/Cassette/CD player. There is a valet mode switch insuring that only you will be stirring that 6-speed manual gearshift around at speed and the padded center console makes for a nice armrest.
Pop the hood and you will find that exotic and precious LT5 engine nestled down in a neat and clean engine bay. It is an all original, low mileage, numbers matching engine that will attract plenty of attention with its\' four cams and 16 runner intake at the car shows. But driving it and letting this engine stretch its legs is what will ensure its collectability amongst driving enthusiasts. The power on this one flows back through a 6-speed manual transmission which provides an even greater degree of driver involvement. Significant advances in handling, braking, and ride were also introduced in this car starting with a new chassis. No longer a strict body on frame like its predecessors, GM developed a uniframe that ties in the windshield frame, and rear portion of the floor pan, as structural members. Then, a completely redesigned independent suspension was developed, and all new brakes, with finned aluminum calipers were installed to make sure you could stop on a dime. All those advances work through 315/35/17s in the back and 275/4017s in the front mounted on those lightweight sawblade wheels.
This car is the total package. A low mileage, original and correct, super clean ZR1 in a great color combination. Come on down and check this car out. You\'ll be glad you did.
