Few new cars have ever caused the stir that whipped up around the 1990 Corvette ZR-1. It started with fuzzy spy photos and Detroit gossip about a high-powered, King of the Hill” model. Chevrolet was coy, either confirming nor denying the grist of the rumor mill.
Rumor became fact at the 1989 Geneva Auto Show, hen the ZR-1 officially debuted. It was a time when performance cars were only beginning to regain some of the performance enjoyed during the heyday of the muscle car, nd the ZR-1's 375-horsepower (280 kW) LT5 V-8 engine – with its DOHC configuration and four-valve heads – was an intoxicating breath of high-octane excitement.
The all-aluminum LT5 engine's design was a collaboration of GM and Lotus Engineering, haring only a 5.7-liter displacement with other small-block engines. The engine was built by Mercury Marine, hich was renowned for its aluminum machining capability. Engineers were justifiably proud of the LT5's refinement and smoothness; so much so that it was claimed a nickel placed on its end on top of the engine wouldn't fall over when the engine was started. The challenge was immediately taken up – and the LT5 roared to life while the nickel remained standing.
The ZR-1 was more than merely a more powerful Corvette – it was a complete performance package that included wider rear bodywork to accommodate humongous rear tires and a unique, onvex rear fascia with rectangular tail lamps that made the car recognizable at a glance. The distinctive exterior elements contributed to the car's mythical status among enthusiasts and auto critics. At its launch, he ZR-1 was found on the cover of just about every automotive publication around the globe, ith Car and Driver dubbing it the “Corvette from Hell.”
Proving the ZR-1's performance lived up to its instant legend status, production model was sent to a high-speed test track at Fort Stockton, exas, nd set seven world speed records – the most notable being a 24-hour endurance run that averaged 175.8 mph (283 km/h) and recorded more than 4,200 miles.
During 1990, he premium ZR-1 recorded 3,044 sales. Subsequent model years didn't quite match the buzz created by that first year. Total production of the 1990-95 ZR-1 was 6,939.
