Two Brand New C4 Corvette ZR1s Look Like A $250,000 Bargain

Sports Cars / 8 Comments

With less than 40 miles on the clock.

The Chevrolet Corvette is one of America's most loved and collected sports cars. The modern C8 Corvette is approaching near supercar levels of performance and refinement, but older models have retained the raw charm that so many still seek. Possibly the most raw and fun to drive of them all are the ZR1 models. These two C4 examples are basically brand new, and represent a fantastic opportunity for any Corvette fan, or car collector in general. Both the 1990 and 1994 examples are listed on the California-based Fusion Motor Company's website, and both have a price tag of $124,950. With less than 35 miles on the odometer, they are in perfect condition.

The C4 ZR1 was introduced at the 1989 Geneva Motor Show and featured a more powerful engine, improved braking and suspension, slippery aerodynamics and sticky tires. The C4 ZR1 famously set the world record for the highest 24-hour/5,000-mile speed by maintaining an average speed of 175 mph. The plan behind the ZR1 was to build the world's fastest production car, and with the help of Lotus, GM delivered these menacing machines to the public.

Under the hood, the C4 ZR1 features a 5.7-liter 32-valve LT5 V8 engine that produces 375 horsepower. In 1993, Lotus modified the engine's cylinder heads, exhaust system and valvetrain, bringing the power figure to 405 hp and 385 lb-ft of torque. This resulted in a 0-60 mph time of 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 180 mph.

Both these cars feature P315/ 35ZR-17 Goodyear Eagle Gatorback tires, an FX3 suspension system engineered by Bilstein, and a six-speed manual transmission manufactured by ZF. The interior of the C4 ZR1 comes standard with leather sports seats and a Delco/Bose sound system which is in spotless condition in both cars. Both cars are finished in Black, and are so crisp that many of the interior parts, including the seats, are still wrapped in plastic. The C4 Corvette might not be the most popular, but clean examples are starting to gain value, and these ZR1 examples are destined to reside in a museum or private collection until someone decides to sell them for millions in the late 2030s.
