As is the case with many cars, the 1990s were a turning point for America’s Sports Car.
Entering into its fourth generation, the Corvette of the 1990s was responsible for putting the American car on par with some of the world’s best super cars and at the top of the lineup was the revered ZR-1. To the tune of $31,683.00, the high performance package included a heavy duty braking system, a selective ride and handling package, low tire pressure warning, electronic air conditioning, specific side body panels, 17 x 9.5 front and 17 x 11 rear styled aluminum wheels, and an upgraded interior. At the heart of the ZR-1 is the 405-horsepower LT5 V8 engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Chevrolet’s goal was to turn the Corvette into the fastest production car ever and the ZR-1 was the means.
Although the ZR-1 was available from 1990-1995, not many were actually made. In fact, a total of only 6,939 examples were produced over the six year period. In 1993 just 448 ZR-1 Corvettes were produced and only 240 of them were 40th Anniversary Edition cars. The 40th Anniversary Package consisted of a deep and glossy Ruby Red exterior finish over a matching Ruby Red interior with leather adjustable sport seats. So as you can imagine a Corvette with both of these highly desirable packages is sure to be regarded as a true Corvette masterpiece.
