These are very special cars, starting with the LS9 6.2-liter, supercharged V-8 that produces over 600 horsepower and is delivered through a six-speed transaxle. At the time of introduction, the project manager was claiming that it would have 100-hp per liter helped by the new, four-lobed Roots-type, intercooled supercharger. Low three seconds times are attainable in the 0- to 60-mph sprint. The speedometer has a reading of 220-mph and you can monitor the supercharger with a boost gauge. The suspension has been designed and tested to log over 1g on the skid pad to make this one of the best handling cars in the world. Stopping distances are just as impressive, courtesy of huge carbon-ceramic, ventilated rotors.
This rare Corvette supercar is finished in the color of Cyber Gray, with a two-tone black and grey leather interior. Records indicate 502 similar ZR-1 Corvettes were finished in this distinctive color. This ZR1 has many distinctive features, both performance and convenience oriented. This ZR1 is stated to be fully “loaded with all options;” as such this would include heated seats, in-dash CD, DVD navigation, Bose stereo, memory package, universal home remote, luggage shade, steering-wheel mounted radio controls, leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, OnStar, dual-zone climate control, and the heads-up display. The Corvette is fit with 19-inch front and 20-inch rear chrome aluminum wheels. Carbon fiber is used for weight, strength and style with the hood, roof panel, roof bow, side-skirts and front splitter. This handsome, all business ZR-1 has covered a less than 7,400 miles and is presented as when new with no paint work. The car has never been registered and is a non-smoker car in “mint” condition with a clean Carfax. All original documents and accessories are present and will accompany the car.
