In the mid-80's, GM approached Lotus with the idea of developing the world's fastest production car. From that collaboration came the LT5 engine, an aluminum block V8 with 375hp, 4-overhead camshafts and 32-valves. The LT5's were built by Mercury Marine in Oklahoma the shipped to Bowling Green where they were installed in the "King of the Hill" ZR1. Evidence of its power was a 4.9 second 0-60 time and a quarter mile sprint in 11.9 seconds. The "King of the Hill" did not come cheap. This car was not meant for the bargain conscious, the ZR1 option added $27,016 to the base price of $31,979. This ZR1 is equipped with the only 2 options available which are dual removable roof panels at $915 and electronic air conditioning for $180. Window Sticker on this ZR1 was $60,090. Available only in a coupe, the 1990 ZR1 is distinguishable from other Corvettes by its 3" wider tail section, 11" wide rear wheels, its convex rear fascia with 4 square taillights and rear ZR1 badges. This is production # 1,017 of 3,049 ZR1s and 1 of 105 Polo Green ZR1s produced in 1990.
