The C4 Corvette has often been a polarizing generation in our storied 70-year history, but in reality, the C4 was a clean-slate revolutionary step forward for the Corvette brand, and it was so good it soon got banned from SCCA racing after beating up the Porsches (full feature here). When the ZR-1 debuted in 1990 it took the generation to a whole different level, with domination that quickly had it dubbed as the King of the Hill.
With only 89 Miles, it takes time-capsule status to a whole different level
Adjusted for inflation, the 1990 MSRP of $60,690 equals $141,220 in today’s dollars
At the time of publication (11/30/2023), bidding was up to $34,000
The Lotus-designed LT5 engine under that clamshell hood is a masterpiece
My favorite angle, with the wide-body rear being the only notable body difference versus a base C4
The interior looks as it should for the miles
Underneath doesn’t look as clean as I expected
