Default Just purchased my first ZR-1

I just purchased a 2013 Torch Red ZR-1. This is my 5th Corvette, my first ZR-1. I love the red calipers and red stitching. So far I am extremely happy. Iíve wanted one of these for a few years. I plan on autocrossing it as well as a few HPDEís per year. Iíve been keeping the UPS man busy lately with wheels, tires, flex fuel kit, injectors, Girodisc rotors, Autoblip, LG Track Box, Dashlogic, and so on. The car already has Am Racing headers, 2.6 upper and a tune. I plan on cooling mods next. I have an appointment with Shortuning later this month. Looking forward to having some fun with this thing this year!

So jealous of those seats with alcantara inserts. Beautiful interior!

I believe this was the vette for sale in Spearfish SD? It had 1 Owner, 16K miles and they were asking $65K? I really liked it myself but passed on it since the vehicle was tracked and I couldn't be certain of the condition. If you don't mind me asking, what did you eventually pay for it? On a side note, I thought all calibers on the ZR1s were blue?

Who built your motor? Builders tag is under the supercharger cover drivers side.

I believe it was 2012 and 2013, you could order different caliper colors for the zr1. Mine are silver on my 2013.

No kidding, I didn't know that but glad it was an option.

Thatís the one. Its in excellent condition. The car will continue to get tracked. The red calipers were an option in 12 and 13. I paid 65k for it. Well worth it.
