With today's history lesson in the books, 'll jump right in to describing every aspect of this vivid time capsule. The car's bright Torch Red paint, hich is topped by a durable clearcoat shell, erfectly accentuates its lightweight body. That body's composite panels display precise fit and excellent finish under ancillary hardware that functions well and seals great. And by the looks of this Corvette's slick finish, 'm fairly certain it has never seen daily driver duty. In fact, t's very unlikely the car's glossy, et-look hue has ever felt anything more aggressive than a soft detailing cloth. And when that level of ownership is combined with Chevrolet's top notch build quality, t creates one seriously capable sports car that'll show well and absolutely blister the road!
Walking around this coupe, t's easy to appreciate how gently late-model C4s have aged. Nearly two decades after they debuted, he car's sharp lines still represent the Corvette brand incredibly well. At the front its neon body, clean combination of halogen running lamps and amber turn signals frame a stamped Corvette tag panel that's free of chips or damage of any kind. Above that tag panel, long hood, hich mimics the cowl induction units found on classic Chevrolets, eatures a fresh black Corvette emblem that's complete with a pristine mix of silver checkers, lack checkers and a red Chevy bowtie. At the sides of that emblem, he car's profile carries the same coke bottle shape of older Corvettes, xcept whittled down by years of gained aerodynamic knowledge. Embedded in that knowledge, ring of body-color trim perfectly complements clear cornering lamps, raditional Corvette gills, inister "ZR-1" emblems, atin black door handles and body-matched mirrors. Inside those mirrors, riginal, ightly tinted glass reflects a small center high mount stop lamp and painted targa roof. And at the back of the car's body, our trademark Corvette tail lights frame a broad "CORVETTE" script, ertical reverse lamps and original, quare exhaust tips.
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, he Lotus engineers assigned to the project quickly realized there was no cost-effective way to build such a motley beast. Instead, hey designed a world class V8 which shared basic dimensions with Chevrolet's storied small block, ut exactly zero interchangeable components. The result is a 32-valve, -cam powerhouse that features a trick dual-path induction system, 05 horsepower and 385 lb./ft. of torque, ll without any help from fuel supplements or any kind of forced induction. The aesthetically pleasing piece was assembled by Mercury Marine, hose specialization in aluminum casting won them the contract. And when fitted under the Corvette's clamshell hood, t became an ultra-performance world record holder. There's no mistaking the big engine's unique intake and sculpted cam covers, hich are emblazoned with the Corvette logo, or something any less than fantastic. And, ore beautifully finished than any engine since the 1930s, he LT5 in this ZR-1 is preserved in 100% showroom-fresh condition. Don't worry; the lightweight mill has definitely been operated enough to stay healthy, ith its fluids being changed regularly. And nothing, rom the bottom of its spotless hood to the top of its clean oil pan, hows any significant signs of wear and tear.
Behind that hot small block, 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, aking 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, hich features electronic traction control and driver-adjustable active ride control. 4-wheel, otus-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 square exhaust tips. And torque meets the pavement through a set of killer 17-inch alloys that spin super wide 275/40 Goodyear Eagle GS-C radials in front of even wider 315/35 Goodyear Eagle GS-C radials. The bottom of this Corvette is every bit as nice as its spectacular engine compartment and glossy exterior panels, howing minimal wear and almost no signs of weathering. The car's bright suspension bits contrast nicely to a clean floorpan. And its straight and solid chassis barely looks like its seen ANY time on the street.
Good preservation is key to any vintage car's interior, nd this C4's clean cockpit looks factory fresh in virtually every way. The plush driving environment kicks off with a pair of 6-way, ower adjustable buckets that are stitched in Black leather. In front of those buckets, leather-wrapped and cross-flag branded steering wheel laps a conservative dash that's fitted with both clear analog and bright digital gauges. Inside that dash, he car's modern center stack anchors electronic climate control above a premium Delco Bose sound system, simple black shifter and buttons for the adjustable suspension. Opposite that center stack, wo-tone side panels hang switches for both power windows and power door locks above sculpted armrests. At the back of those side panels, surprisingly spacious cargo hold features enough room for short, eekend road trips. And naturally, ll the amenities and conveniences you've come to expect in a modern ride are present and accounted for.
The sale of this investment grade ZR-1 includes a laminated build sheet, riginal factory paperwork, he original window sticker outlined above, laminated copy of that window sticker, n original owner's manual, n original owner's VHS tape and two key fobs.
Throughout the Corvette's 60 year history Chevrolet has produced a plethora of special edition cars, ut many of them were trendy stripe and decal kits that bordered on cheesy. This 1994, T5 equipped ZR-1 is subtle, lassy, nd doesn't need to be plastered with stickers or huge badges to make its point. Whether this awesome C4 is your first Corvette, r just the newest addition to your fleet, t's the kind of high quality collector car that's guaranteed to put a smile on your face!
