Lot #1021 - This limited production ZR-1 in this unique color Cyber Gray is being sold as a pair with a 1993 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 40th Anniversary Edition. The following is GM's description of this supercar. The Corvette ZR-1 also has a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h), making it the fastest Corvette ever produced and ranking it among the global supercars of commensurate performance. None of those other supercars, however, equals the ZR-1's performance-per-dollar ratio. "The ZR-1 is an incredible machine by any measure," said Ed Peper, North American Vice President, Chevrolet. "There's simply no other vehicle in the world that does a better job of balancing performance, price and fuel economy. "The Corvette ZR-1's 0-60 performance is 0.3-second quicker than the already-quick Corvette Z06 and the 0-100-mph performance is nearly a full second quicker - 7 seconds vs. the Z06's 7.9 seconds. It is performance that is equal to or better than many super cars costing substantially more." A favorable power-to-weight ratio gives the ZR-1 an advantage over the competition and performance that has to be experienced to fully appreciate," said Tom Wallace, Corvette chief engineer. "Of course, on a racetrack, drivers of competitors' cars may appreciate the ZR-1 in a whole different manner." And the racetrack isn't the only place where the ZR-1 trumps its supercar competitors - it beats them at the gas pump, too. A new LS9 6.2 Liter Supercharged small block engine powers the ZR-1's performance capability. Heavy-duty and lightweight reciprocating components support high-rpm performance, while a new, sixth-generation Supercharger and complementing charge-cooling system help the LS9 make big power and torque across the rpm range. The engine is hand-assembled at GM's Performance Build Center, in Wixom, Mich. In addition to the LS9 engine, the ZR-1 is a technology powerhouse, designed with lightweight and unique components that reinforce its performance with a confidant feel on either a highway or road course. The standard ZR-1 comes with accoutrements based on the Z06, including lightweight seats and lightweight content. The available uplevel interior package includes power-adjustable, heated and leather-trimmed sport seats embroidered with the ZR-1 logo, side air bags, Bose premium audio system, navigation system, Bluetooth connectivity, power telescoping steering column, custom leather-wrapped interior and more. Chrome wheels are the only other available option on the ZR-1. **SOLD AS A PAIR WITH LOT #1021.1**
