Configurator tool for new ZR1 goes live with complete pricing.
We learned when the C7 Corvette ZR1 was introduced that it would have a starting price in the $120k range, but with the arrival of the configurator tool on Chevrolet.com, we have a look at the full pricing layout of America’s newest supercar. Today, we take a look at the options and pricing for the most powerful Corvette ever.
Building the C7 Corvette ZR1
When you begin building your 2019 ZR1 online, you are presented with the option of coupe or convertible, followed by picking the 1ZR or 3ZR trim levels. With gas guzzler tax and destination, the coupe starts at $120,995 while the convertible starts at $124,990, with 3ZR trim level for each starting $10,000 more than 1ZR.
Next, the 2019 ZR1 configurator asks you to pick between 10 different exterior colors, all of which can be paired with the satin black “stinger” hood stripe. Seven of the colors are offered for the standard price while Corvette Racing Yellow, Long Beach Red and Sebring Orange all cost $995 extra. The interior comes in 11 different layouts, ranging from black to bright red, with pricing varying based on the color and material.
The only option package for the new Corvette ZR1 is the ZTK package, which literally every single buyer should add. For $2,995, you get the huge adjustable carbon fiber wing, Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires, performance suspension with unique shocks and springs and removable carbon fiber end caps for the front splitter.
There is a long list of exterior options for the new ZR1, including three different wheel choices($495-1,995), the 8-speed automatic transmission ($1,725), the Engine Build Experience ($5,000), painted brake calipers ($595), unique center caps ($210), a car cover ($1,205), a license plate frame ($115) and the Museum Delivery package ($990).
On the inside, Corvette ZR1 buyers can upgrade to the Competition seats ($1,995), the performance data recorder system ($1,750), red seat belts ($395), a cargo shade ($170) and Corvette-branded luggage ($990) that fits snugly in the trunk of the 755hp supercar.
The Top Dollar ZR1
The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 starts at $120,990 (coupe) including gas guzzler tax and destination, but how much does it cost when you add all of the options?
Well, when I priced out a new ZR1 3ZR coupe in Sebring Orange Tintcoat (shown above) with the black hood stripe, the ZTK package, the chromed aluminum wheels, the 8-speed automatic transmission, the Corvette Engine Build Experience, red painted brake calipers, carbon fiber wheel centers, the carbon fiber dual roof package, the Corvette Museum Delivery, the Competition seats and the custom luggage, the MSRP comes to $151,500.
If you remove the luggage, the engine build program and the delivery program – preserving all of the actual features of the loaded Corvette – the MSRP of the ZR1 coupe is $144,590. Adding all of those key applicable options to the ZR1 convertible leads to an MSRP of $145,595, which isn’t much higher than the loaded coupe due to the $2,995 cost of the carbon fiber dual roof package.
In any case, you can get the 2019 Corvette ZR1 for as little as $121k, but to get all of the hottest features, you should expect to pay closer to $130k for the coupe and $135k for the convertible.
