Pfff.. There's plenty of these cars. This isn't even low miles for a low mile ZR1, I've seen quite a few for sale online with less than 1k miles, even as ridiculous as having about 50 miles on them. People tucked these cars away thinking they were some kind of investment keeping the window sticker, dealer receipts and all that garbage. They've been trickling out for a while now as people have given up on them and just accept that fact they are going to eat their shirt on these 'investments'.

Cool but a 95 is the 405HP LT5, you would think a company with a name "GM Authority" would know this.

Why do you say that? It has the high mount center brake light and also the wide rear body. Look at where the power antenna sits in relation to the edge of the quarter panel and you can tell it is a wide body.

Default Great car but...

Too bad this Vette features the all too conservative and bland white paint.

It is a ZR-1 does not have the tag bracket, you can tell by.. The rocker panels, high stop light, rear quarters and a number of other tell tail features.

Y’all kill me sometimes. There’s nothing about any of those pics that doesn’t look like a perfectly legit picture of a real ZR1. The rear plate is missing the black spacers, but the dimensions are all correct and nothing looks photo shopped, why not just assume the license plate spacer isn’t mounted on the car for some reason?

If you go to the actual eBay ad you will see more photographs of the car, to include the motor and VIN, which indicates it is a real ZR-1. (LT-5 motor and VIN #5800439) indicates it is a true ZR-1 It is missing the rear license plate holder, which is probably in the car since it hasn't been driven much.

I am not seeing the pics on ebay. Can you send the URL? the pic is distorted look closely at the pic and you can tell it is out of kilter. The tail lights look rectangle and not square. If you are look to buy I would trust but verify.

Wow this forum has become full of posters who think they can disqualify the pics as fakes because they know better, to them I say learn the differences many other tell tale body parts. Or ones who just can't wait to dis the ZR-1 by claiming its just a C4/nothing but problems. Maybe you should start your own forum on why not to buy a ZR-1. I will agree it is a C4 but also a very special part of Corvette history unlike any other C4 or any other factory built Corvette in history.

I'm not looking to buy, I was trying to help out and confirm it is a real ZR-1.

Looks like a sweet car to me.
I would buy it if the price is right.

Paint color preference is highly subjective. Believe it or not, some of us actually like the clean and classic arctic white paint.
I would never own a red Corvette.
