In the automotive world there's always been quite a bit of discussion about the ultimate Corvette. Given their fantastic style and glorious lack of refinement the earliest C1s are certainly candidates. Folks searching for brute force and unmatched swagger continue to place money on big block C2s. If we're talking strictly functionality and performance numbers the world-class Z06 takes the cake. But if you live in the collector car world there's one moniker that stands above them all: ZR1. Twice as livable as a C1 much harder to duplicate than big block C2s and featuring comparable performance to the generally less refined Z06 the King of the Road is widely considered the ultimate version of America's favorite sports car. And if you're looking for an ultimate edition of that ultimate version of America's favorite sports car you've come to the right place! This Bloomington-certified 1064-mile coupe is 1 of 2 1992 ZR-1s equipped with Black on Arctic White aesthetics. And presently the other car is crunched in a salvage yard with very little chance of ever hitting the road again. So what are you waiting for? Here's your shot at a vintage Corvette that thanks to highly unique construction mixes record-breaking performance with unmatched exclusivity!


Take one look down the sides of this razor-sharp coupe and you'll see a well-maintained garage queen that's assembly line fresh in virtually every way. Glossy Black 2-stage shows just how far GM paint technology had come from the days of multi-colored Stingrays. The car's lightweight body panels display precise fit and exact finish under ancillary hardware that functions well and seals great. It's very unlikely that body has ever felt anything more aggressive than a soft detailing cloth. And when that level of ownership is combined with Bowling Green's top-notch build quality it creates one seriously capable sports car that shows well and absolutely blisters the road!


The aluminum LT5 V8 found under the hood of this virtually new Corvette is a modern work of automotive art. Originally intended to be a simple set of 16-valve cylinder heads atop a basic Chevrolet small block the Lotus engineers assigned to the project quickly realized there was no cost-effective way to build such a motley beast. Instead they designed a world class V8 which shared basic dimensions with Chevrolet's storied small block but exactly zero interchangeable components. The result is a 32-valve 4-cam powerhouse that utilizes a trick dual-path induction system to create 375 horsepower and 370 lb./ft. of all-American torque. The much lauded aluminum specialists at Mercury Marine of Stillwater Oklahoma assembled the aesthetically pleasing mill. And when fitted under the Corvette's clamshell hood it became an ultra-performance world record holder. There's no mistaking the big engine's unique intake and sculpted cam covers which are emblazoned with the Corvette logo for something any less than fantastic. And more beautifully finished than any engine since the 1930s the LT5 in this ZR-1 is preserved in 100% showroom-fresh condition.


Behind that hot small block a proven ZF 6-speed distributes power to a factory Corvette rear end. That combination works great in conjunction with the motor's ability to shut down half its intake runners making this Vette plenty quick off the line and a joy to cruise on the highway. All ZR-1s have a Lotus-tuned FX3 double A-arm front and independent rear suspension which features electronic traction control and driver-adjustable active ride control. 4-wheel Lotus-tuned power disc brakes combine with Lotus-tuned power steering to keep all that power productive and pointed straight. Factory dual exhaust runs from original equipment manifolds into two rear-mounted mufflers that hang just before GM's familiar quad-outlet tips. And torque meets the pavement through a set of killer 17-inch alloys that spin super wide 275/40ZR17 Goodyear Eagle GS-Cs in front of even wider 315/35ZR17 Goodyear Eagle GS-Cs.


Like its body this C4's clean cockpit is well maintained in virtually every way. The plush driving environment kicks off with a pair of 6-way power adjustable buckets that are stitched in Arctic White leather. In front of those buckets a leather-wrapped and Corvette-branded steering wheel laps a conservative dash that's fitted with both clear analog and bright digital gauges. Inside that dash the car's modern center stack anchors electronic climate control above a premium Delco Bose sound system a simple black shifter and buttons for the adjustable suspension. Opposite that center stack 2-tone side panels hang switches for both power windows and power door locks above sculpted armrests. And at the back of those panels a surprisingly spacious cargo hold features enough room for short weekend road trips.
