1992 Chevrolet Corvette -- Description

Throughout the Corvette's storied history Chevrolet has produced a plethora of special edition Corvettes but many of them were little more than stripe and decal kits. But, for Corvette aficionados, ''Z'' ''R''- ''1'' has always represented the pinnacle of Chevrolet performance. This particular 1992 ZR-1 (#437 of Only 502 crafted), is fast, quiet, classy, and didn't need to be plastered with stickers or huge badges to make its point. This Lotus of England designed,... Mercury Marine-built 375 horsepower LT5 V8 engine nicknamed "King of the Hill", is "The most exotic European inspired engine ever assembled into a Corvette by Chevrolet to this day". The result is a 32-valve, 16-injector, 4-cam powerhouse that utilizes a trick dual-path induction system to create even more All-American torque (370lb-ft). The powerplant, on fire-up, defaults to 8 fuel injectors with 8 more injectors, for a total of 16 live injectors, activated with the flip of the Power Key (which lies forward of the German-engineered ZF 6-speed manual gearbox's shift lever). Traction is enhanced with a tuned FX3 double A-arm front and independent rear suspension which features switchable electronic traction control (ASR), driver-adjustable active ride control: tour, sport, and performance to keep all that power both productive and controlled. Torque meets the pavement through a set of killer super wide 17x11-inch alloys at the rear that are contained with special ZR-1 factory-sculpted and installed rear quarter panels that gracefully start at the leading edge of the doors and actually make the rear bumper cover 5.5 inches wider than the standard model. A copy of the car's original window sticker displays the MSRP base price of a standard1992 Corvette is $33,635. and the ZR-1 performance options was another $32,328. to total $66,513. plus some dealers added a second sticker plus applicable taxes certainly tipped the price scales but more than made up for it by advanced performance and top-notch build quality creating one seriously capable sports car that shows well and absolutely blisters the road! Advertised 0-60 in 4.3 seconds and 10.8 to 100 with a top speed of 180 mph. All C4, ZR-1's were special ordered...this one went to Purifoy Chevrolet Co. of Fort Lupton, CO. No convertible model or automatic transmission ZR-1's were offered the public, only coupes with removable top. "I've immensely enjoyed, showing, joy-riding and garage-queening this rare historical car", says the present owner/sole driver, purchased from Bret Chevrolet in 2006 when the odometer read 11,100 miles. It now reads 23,226 easy miles when streets are dry...no track miles. #437 of 502 built! 1992 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 "King of the Hill" finished in Black with a Light Beige Leather interior. the ZR1 performance package that includes a 5.7L V8 engine producing 375hp/370lb-ft of torque and backed by a 6-speed manual transmission pushing this car from 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds, 0-100mph in 10.3 seconds, and finishing with a top speed of 180mph. Features within this classic American Muscle car consist of New Goodyear GSD3's (315/35/17 rear and 275/40/17 front), 17x11 Aluminum Rear Wheels and 17x9.5 Front Wheels, Heavy Duty Braking System, Selective Ride and Handling Package, Adjustable Sport Seats, 6-Way Power Driver's Seat, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), Delco Bose Gold Stereo Series Music System with CD and Cassette Player, Solar Glass, and Factory Optional Dual Removable Roof Panels. Chevrolet went above and beyond what any car enthusiast at the time believed they would. The high-quality but performance lacking V8 engines of previous models were underwhelming and rumors started to come out that Chevy was working on a new performance engine. Enter the Lotus designed LT5 V8 placed within the Corvette ZR-1. First shown off at the Geneva auto show in 1989, for the 1990 model year, Chevrolet wasted no time in letting the world know it meant business. The engineers at Chevy set out to create a supercar killer and succeeded. At the time, American made cars were lacking the standout creation the rest of the world would be envious of. With the ZR-1 Corvette, also known as the "King of the Hill," the Detroit muscle car took home the moniker of 'King' and proved to be the world-beater the muscle car generation needed. To this day the LT5 engine is widely considered the most exotic engine placed within a Corvette ever. The ZR1 seems to be flawless in its design, performance, and sustainability. The rarity of these machines only makes it that much more desirable, so don't miss out on this one.
