This 1995 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is a fantastic example of a rare, low km, top of the tree, collector quality Corvette. The ZR1 was Corvette’s supercar killer, setting all sorts of records along the way.

The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 was a high performance variant of the C4 Corvette that debuted for the 1990 model year. The ZR1 was developed in collaboration with Lotus, who was owned by General Motors at the time. Lotus’ expertise in performance was put to good use on the ZR1, which had a range of cutting-edge features, including adjustable suspension, improved steering, and advanced valve technology on the engine. The high tech engine powering the ZR1 was known as the LT5, and featured an all aluminium block, 32 valves and dual overhead cams and generated 375hp initially, which was bumped up to 405hp for ’93-95 cars. The outsourcing of Corvette’s flagship V8 engine to Lotus engineers was a sore point for the American Chevy engineers who in retaliation went on to produce their own all aluminium V8 engine they named the (now infamous) LS1 for the C5 release in 1996. Production of the C4 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 ended in 1995, with a total of only 6,939 examples built during these years. The 95 model is considered the most desirable of these with only 448 examples built that year.

This car is finished in its original colour combination of Polo Green II metallic with Tan leather interior. Although the ZR1 looks almost identical to the base model Corvette externally, the doors and rear guards actually gradually flare out to become three inches wider on the ZR1 to accommodate the 11 inch wide rear wheels. Aside from this and some subtle badging, its extremely difficult to spot a ZR1 making them a bit of a street sleeper for unsuspecting victims who pull up beside them at the traffic lights.

Being a flagship model, the inside is packed with features and creature comforts. The front bucket seats are supportive and power operated both drivers and passenger side from a single control in the centre console. The cars were fitted with air conditioning, power windows, power mirrors, electronic adjustable suspension and adjustable driving modes including the centre console mounted key to unlock full engine power! From the factory the ZR1 was tested at 4.4 seconds 0-60 mph and could complete the standing quarter mile in just 12.7 seconds. Those are still fast times 30 years later and absolutely face melting performance back in 1995.

Under the bonnet the original LT5 engine remains in place and is paired to the factory ZF six speed manual transmission. The electronic adjustable suspension and factory brakes all remain in place. The car has only travelled 24,000 kms from new and has been lovingly cared for by collectors during most of its ownership. Opportunities to purchase collector quality examples like this one don’t come along very often and you will struggle to find a better example than this anywhere. Be sure to register and bid if you want to see this one parked in your garage.
