OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: Red C5 in the Right Light
“SavageLand”, the owner of this Corvette of the Week, knows how to photograph automobiles. The guy has shot documentaries, and he has also photographed for RM Auctions.
Corvettes, like all sports cars, have low centers of gravity, so when you’ve got a ‘Vette on three wheels, you’re doing some hard driving.
Yes, it’s painted a very attractive, or magnetic, shade of red, but with those Z06 wheels and 15% window tint, the whole package comes together in such a way that allows this fiberglass-bodied car to take on ferromagnetic properties.
Have you ever been on that perfect Sunday drive in your Corvette? Have the stars aligned themselves enough to where the weather is perfect, the best-possible set of songs is playing on the radio, and you have the right person sitting in your passenger seat?
This Corvette of the Week is a rare find. Chevrolet produced only 502 ZR-1s for the 1992 model year, and among those, only 48 were painted in this car’s Black Rose Metallic.
