The new Z06 is officially the most powerful production-spec Corvette ever, with 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. To celebrate this new wave of power that is headed to showrooms for the 2015 model year, let’s take a look back at an earlier-model Z06 for this edition of “Corvette of the Week”.
America is about living large, and if you drive a Corvette with a 454, you’re basically driving an exemplification of what America is all about.
“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.
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.
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.
