Default Another wrecked ZR1

5th one I have heard about:

https://www.copart.com/lot/48326158

Wow, opening bid is 97k. Donít think theyíll get any bids, do you? I wouldnít think a ZR-1 repaired perfectly is possibly worth 97k due to the salvage title but maybe less.

Default Cup 2 tire in pic

This post is mainly for folks ordering the ZTK package but havent taken delivery yet. I noticed the Cup 2 tire in the picture. Although getting the ZTK package myself, I did have the dealer install PSSís on it before taking delivery and I sold the new factory Cup 2ís to another forum member. The net cost to me was ~$600. I had Discount tire direct ship the Pssís to the dealer before my car arrived and had the dealer do the mount and balance to protect me from possible wheel damage. It was a safety concern in the wet that played the largest part in my decision. Is anyone keeping track of street accident rates of the Cup 2 vs PSS? On all Vettes.

i donít get how the insurance company would total this. Is the rule of thumb for a total being 75% of the cars value to render it totaled. Even if it was 50% and that car had depreciated to 100k with 359 miles on it. I donít see 50k of damage on the surface. Must be some serious damage underneath. That being the case I donít think this car is worth 40k.

No bids from anyone in their right mind!

yea curious if aero is off from transport or if it's already been pilfered and on craigslist. opening bid is ridiculous based on other cars i've seen. that car alone repaired after an accident would be lucky to bring $100k IMO.

I would Assume parts not yet available help ins companies and insured come to a totaled settlement. How long can one wait to get a car fixed if parts are not available?

It might be the same car, but the total hasn't been reported to GM yet because the title doesn't showed as Branded in GM's system. Usually that happens fairly fast.

It's VIN # 435 (sold June 5, 2018) and was a ZTK optioned car before the wing was taken off the car.

I was thinking about doing exactly the same thing Rinaldo, I put PS's on my 14 M7 Z51 and I love them. Temperature is not my concern, but heavy Florida rain and standing water on concrete overpasses in a ZR-ZTK without the weather mode (which is awesome) are.

How are the PS's working for you? Have you had them in standing water yet?

I have had PSSís (non run flats on my C6 Callaway for several years now and driven them in several torrential downpours.. I like them very much. Much better than the cars original Goodyear F1ís. On the ZR1 I have the run flat version because its only available in runflat is our size. I like them very much, (but do prefer non run flat tires). I also have put a set of Michelin Pilot sport 4S ( 4th generation Pilot Super Sport) on my Audi RS5 not all season as some people misinterpret from the name. (275/30/20).. I like them better than the Pirelli P zeros that came on it. Go with the Pilot SS runflats and you can safely drive 60 mph in any rain.

No you can't! You just haven't hit hard enough rain.

Thanks for the verification Rinaldo

I've driven a C7 with the 4S's in the wet and I was impressed with them. So I too will be replacing the Cups with the 4S or the exact fit SS's before the ZR leaves the dealership - hopefully the last part of December or the first part of January.

If any Forum member would like a set of zero-mile Cups please PM me and make me an offer I cannot refuse. I live in the Orlando area

Cheers -
