Ruby Red w/Ruby Red interior, 350/405hp, 6-spd manual transmission.
With the arrival of the ZR-1 in ’90 the “King of the Hill” was firmly established as the most exotic and technologically advanced Corvette ever built! The LT5 V8 that was developed as a joint venture with Chevrolet and Lotus was the first and only Twin Cam 32 valve engine ever produced for a Corvette. The car immediately started setting records on the both the road and track, some of which still stand and proved to be a formidable opponent of just about anything that the U.S. or Europe could toss in its path. By ’93 the ZR-1 had been in production for 4 years and Corvette was celebrating its 40th Anniversary. To commemorate this event, a special 40th Anniversary Edition was offered on Coupe Convertible and ZR-1. Checking RPO Z25 got you special Ruby Red paint with matching interior, special chrome 40th Anniversary emblems including embroidered headrests, and Ruby wheel inserts. This special model proved to be very popular with the buying public, but those lucky enough to score a new 40th Anniversary ZR-1 were one of only 225 to do so!
The 40th being offered here has managed to rack up only 436 miles since it rolled off the assembly line in Bowling Green back in ’93! The car is in “Showroom” condition and is a multiple award winner, including Bloomington Gold, N.C.R.S. Top Flight and Corvette Nationals! In addition to the Z25 Pkg, the car is optioned with both clear and painted roof panels and comes with a huge leather binder full of every piece of paperwork that ever came with the car! One for the collectors! Stk #5972
