Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1991

Few new cars have ever caused the stir that whipped up around the 1991 Corvette ZR-1. It started with fuzzy spy photos and Detroit gossip about a high-powered. “King of the Hill” model. Chevrolet was coy. neither confirming nor denying the grist of the rumor mill. Rumor became fact at the 1989 Geneva Auto Show. when the ZR-1 officially debuted. It was a time when performance cars were only beginning to regain some of the performance enjoyed during the heyday of the muscle car. and the ZR-1's 375-horespower (280 kW) LT5 V-8 engine – with its DOHC configuration and four-valve heads – was an intoxicating breath of high-octane excitement. The all-aluminum LT5 engine's design was a collaboration of GM and Lotus Engineering. sharing only a 5. 7-liter displacement with other small-block engines. The engine was built by Mercury Marine. which was renowned for its aluminum machining capability. Engineers were justifiably proud of the LT5's refinement and smoothness; so much so that it was claimed a nickel placed on its end on top of the engine wouldn't fall over when the engine was started. The challenge was immediately taken up – and the LT5 roared to life while the nickel remained standing. The ZR-1 was more than merely a more powerful Corvette – it was a complete performance package that included wider rear bodywork to accommodate humongous rear tires and a unique. convex rear fascia with rectangular taillamps that made the car recognizable at a glance. The distinctive exterior elements contributed to the car's mythical status among enthusiasts and auto critics. At its launch. the ZR-1 was found on the cover of just about every automotive publication around the globe. with Car and Driver dubbing it the “Corvette from Hell. ” Proving the ZR-1's performance lived up to its instant legend status. a production model was sent to a high-speed test track at Fort Stockton. Texas. and set seven world speed records – the most notable being a 24-hour endurance run that averaged 175. 8 mph (283 km/h) and recorded more than 4. 00 miles. This is a pristine example of the ZR1 ordered with all options including both tops and original GM 1994 ZR1 wheels show with originals in GM boxes mint condition in and out with only 12000 miles no rain always garaged
