3,740 actual miles, still as it left the factory!

Here is a time capsule of an American Supercar! Only 3,740 actual miles. It is as it left the factory from tip to taillights. It still looks virtually new. Even the underside is like it just left the factory. Richard Penske bought this new as a gift for the man that built his house. 2nd owner just purchased the car Dec of 2017 with 3,675 miles. Because of health issues he is selling the car after putting only 70 miles on it. He also replaced the tires because of age, not wear. It has everything it came with including the "Pizza Box" which is serial numbered to that car and includes a leatherbound binder, CD, VHS tape, cassette, brochures, 2 window stickers, hardcover book and more. Also included is a new ZR-1 jacket and shirt.

Did you know the ZR-1 option doubled the original price! Also did you the ZR-1 body is wider? Yes, it is wider to accommodate the large wheels.

The ZR-1 story:
In late 1987, rumors of an all-new, high performance Corvette built upon the fourth generation platform began circulating among the automotive press. Dubbed the “King of the Hill,” the secretive supercar was said to be a world-beater, and in March of 1989, GM debuted its impressive Corvette ZR-1 at the Geneva Motor Show.
GM had been working on an in house performance engine option of it's own, but building one that maintained the civility needed for everyday driving proved challenging.
Enter partner Lotus Group, which GM had acquired in a 1985 deal. Lotus developed an aluminum-block 350 V-8 that utilized double overhead camshafts and four valves per cylinder and proved capable of producing 375 horsepower and 370 pound-feet of torque. It was the testing of this engine (a variant of which would appear in the 1986 Corvette Indy concept) that led to the rumors of a “King of the Hill” Corvette, and in March of 1989, GM was ready to show its hand.
The Geneva debut was hardly accidental, and GM made sure to invite press from around the globe for the car's European test drive. Most media outlets wasted no time heaping praise on the car, which proved capable of running from 0-60 MPH in a little over four seconds, on its way to a top speed of 175 MPH. Car and Driver even called it “The Corvette from Hell".
In addition to the Lotus-designed V-8 beneath the hood, the ZR-1 featured a three-inch wider rear track, necessitated by its oversize 315/35-17 rear tires (which humbled the base Corvette's 275/40-17 rear skins). The change required new doors, as well as a new rear fascia that took a convex shape to distinguish it from lesser Corvettes (for the 1990 model year, anyway). Taillamps on ZR-1 models were rectangular in shape, but in profile, the ZR-1 looked very much like a base model Corvette, albeit one with different wheels.
A quarter-century after the ZR-1's release, the car still retains a loyal following among Corvette collectors, and serves as a milestone performance model in Corvette history.
