1992 Corvette ZR-1 Is a Classic for the Taking
With an asking price of only $59,000, you may want to jump quickly on this 1992 Corvette ZR-1 with a little over 1,000 miles on the odometer.
If this 1995 Corvette ZR-1 looks like it’s in mint condition, that’s because it is. And she’s only only got 10,934 miles on the odometer!
This Throwback Thursday “Top Gear” video, which finds Jeremy Clarkson comparing a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 to the Audi R8, certainly qualifies as a classic, even though Clarkson doesn’t pull any punches.
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.
Corvette Forum members love to talk trash on me because of my love for the C4 Corvette … particularly model years 1992 to 1994. I realize generation four was not a banner era for the brand, but I think C4s would be remembered more fondly if the ZR-1 were the only variant of Corvette produced during that time. At about $60,000 in the 1990s, it was an expensive car, but it was a formidable player on the world stage competing with the likes of the Porsche 911 Turbo. I dream of owning a C4 ZR-1. Forum member “We Gone” (a.k.a. Steve) is living my dream … times two.
