Dressed in Bright Red, the cars fiberglass body panels are in very good condition, with only minor blemishes visible upon close inspection. The windows are clear and crackfree; the lights are in great shape, including the popup, revolving headlights. Car rides on Nitto P275/40ZR17 tires in front and P315/35ZR17 tires in back, surrounding factory styled aluminum wheels, 17x9.5 front and 17x11 in back. All body panels are straight, the engine bay is tidy and the battery looks new. The sheetmolded compound bumpers look as good as the rest of the car.
Inside, the saddle interior is in good condition for its age with its sport bucket seats and matching carpet. The instrument panel is intact with a fourspoke steering wheel, complete with drivers side airbag. The door panels look good, as does the center console, with the gearshift that falls easily into your right hand. Rounding out the interior is a Pioneer CD RDS receiver.

Thirty years ago, GM bought Group Lotus, the UKbased consulting, engineering and performance car builder. Corvette administrators approached Lotus with the idea of codeveloping the Worlds Fastest Production Car based on the C4 Corvette.
The new partners designed a new engine to replace the L98 V8 found under the standard Corvettes hood. Dubbed the LT5, it was an aluminumblock V8 with identical bore centers to the L98 but with four overhead camshafts and 32 valves. The LT5 featured a unique airmanagement system to give a wider power band by closing half of the 16 intake runners and fuel injectors when the engine was at partthrottle. Upgraded steering and braking systems were also part of the package and Lotus helped Chevy choose the settings for the standard FX3 adjustable active ride control Chevrolet fitted to the car with its Performance, Sport and Touring settings.
GM quickly found that the LT5 required special assembly; neither its Bowling Green plant nor any of its other assembly facilities could handle the work, so it contracted with Mercury Marine Corporation in Stillwater, Oklahoma to assemble the engines and ship them to Bowling Green.
The key way to ID a ZR1 was from the rear; it sported a wider tail section than standard Vettes with a new, convex rear fascia that had four rectangular taillights and the car had 11wide rear wheels.
Documentation with this car includes original window sticker, copy of window stickers, predelivery inspection procedure sheet and mirror hangtag, odometer disclosure statement, copies of the vehicle invoice, copies of GMtodealer correspondence about the ZR1, original Chevrolet Courtesy Key for lockouts or other emergency uses, service and maintenance receipts totaling more than $16,000, a Corvette Authentics catalog, a Pioneer CD RDS Receiver Owners Manual, a Corvette Music System Sampler cassette of popular rock n roll hits from the 1980s and miscellaneous state taxation and insurance forms.
Competition to this Corvette in 1990 included Dodges Viper, Ferraris 348, Porsches 911, Toyotas Supra Turbo, Acuras NSX and Nissans 300ZX Turbo and Aston Martins Virage.
