Lot #744 - With a top speed of 205mph, the Corvette ZR1 is the fastest factory built car ever produced in the U.S. and rivals the likes of Porsche, Lamborghini and Ferrari with its speed, precision and innovation. The limited production of the Corvette ZR1 guarantees its place in history as one of the most respected and ferocious sport cars ever produced. The body is mostly carbon fiber and is mounted on an all-aluminum chassis resulting in a weight of 3,300lbs. When trying to minimize wheel spin, the ZR1 hits 60mph in just 3.3 seconds. It's in the quarter mile where the ZR1 begins to stretch its legs, cracking off an 11.4 second run, putting it at a level with the fastest cars in the world. The ZR1 is powered by a 6.2 Liter LS9 aluminum block V8 equipped with a 4-lobe Eaton Twin Vortices Series supercharger with intercooler. It delivers an SAE-certified 638hp at 6,500rpm and 604ft/lb of torque at 3,800rpm. The engine employs lightweight titanium intake valves and connecting rods, and contains a high performance dry-sump oil system. The ZR1 is built on the same aluminum intensive chassis as the Corvette Z06 and features similar independent SLA front and rear suspensions, with aluminum upper and lower control arms. Where the ZR1 differs is the suspension tuning, which was optimized for the car's steamroller wide front and rear tires. This car was the 76th built and was one of a handful of Factory Show Cars exhibited at major manufacturer car shows in the Eastern U.S., it was never delivered to a dealer and purchased directly from the factory on the day before GM filed bankruptcy. 3,830 original miles.
