To punctuate the final year of production for the seventh-generation Corvette, Chevrolet created the most powerful and technologically advanced production version in its history. With more than 750 horsepower and numerous performance-enhancing upgrades, even the advent of the all-new, mid-engine 2020 C8 Corvette has not diminished its appeal—especially considering that fewer than 3,000 ZR1 coupes and convertibles are said to have been produced.
At the heart of the C7 ZR1 is the LT5 6.2-liter V-8 engine offering the highest output ever for a Chevrolet production vehicle. Key to the lofty output—755 horsepower and 715 pounds-feet of torque—is a more efficient, intercooled supercharger system that offers 52 percent more displacement than the Corvette Z06’s LT4 supercharger, coupled with General Motor’s first dual-fuel-injection system, which employs primary direct injection and supplemental port injection. Making its presence known, visually speaking, the supercharger/intercooler assembly is capped by a special carbon-fiber “halo,” for which the hood has a cutout to accommodate. The engine could be paired with either a Tremec seven-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic.
To improve aerodynamics and cooling of mechanical components, Chevrolet devised a unique front fascia with larger air inlets and diffusers. In addition, two different aero packages further improved downforce and stability for more confident handling. A standard rear “low wing,” helps the ZR1 achieve the highest possible top speed—said to be nearly 215 mph—while an optional, adjustable “high wing”— part of the ZTK Track Performance Package—creates maximum downforce for better cornering and quicker lap times. The ZTK package also includes a front splitter with carbon-fiber end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and specific chassis and Magnetic Ride Control tuning.
This C7 ZR1 is finished in Arctic White over Jet Black and benefits from having only one owner who drove it sparingly. The odometer showed just over 9,900 miles as of cataloguing time. It features more than $18,000 in factory options, including the eight-speed automatic with paddle shifters, Premium Equipment Group, ZR1 chrome aluminum wheels, Dual Roof Package (one in carbon fiber and one transparent), sueded microfiber seat inserts and steering wheel, Chrome Badge Package, wheel locks, and GM C7R Corvette Racing indoor car cover. It is accompanied by factory manuals with a leather case, window sticker, two key fobs, two tops (transparent and carbon fiber), an indoor car cover, and an unmounted set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires that will be installed by the consignor once the vehicle is sold.
