Corvette Of The Day: 1990 Callaway SuperNatural 475 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1
When it was released, the ZR-1 was a costly option that would transform conventional Corvettes into a sports car that would truly rival the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini. Priced at $27,016 above the base model 1990 Corvette, the total sales price of the ZR-1 was a then-staggering $58,995, which, for its time, put the ZR-1 financially out of reach for many consumers – even those who had considered purchasing a base model Corvette. Still, despite its costly price tag, it was still far more affordable than its Italian counterparts, making the ZR-1 a very desirable entry in the world of performance super cars.
This 1990 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 is equipped with a 5.7-liter LT5 32-valve V8 engine that has been modified by Callaway Cars with a SuperNatural 475 package, which refers to a naturally-aspirated engine generating at least 475 horsepower.
