  • What's New for 1990

    King-of-the-hill ZR-1 appears with aluminum DOHC 32-valve, 5.7-liter V8 built by Mercury Marine. ZF six-speed transmission is standard on ZR-1, as is blistering performance and ultra-wide rear wheels. ZR-1 is distinguished by unique rear-body work. All Corvettes get a driver airbag and ABS. New dashboard debuts with several analog gauges and a real glovebox. Base Corvettes get five additional horsepower. The radiator is sloped for better cooling. Seventeen-inch alloys are lighter-weight. A 200-watt sound system with cassette or CD player is available.

Best performance bargain out there

Vehicle: 1990 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 2dr Coupe

Now the average joe can afford a supercar. For the price of a used Honda Accord, you can purchase one of the highest-performing cars from the '90's. These cars sold for over $70,000 new (over $100,000 in today's dollars) and only 6,000 or so were made. I predict that they will skyrocket in value in 5 to 10 years.

Zr-1 after 10 years of

Just a thrill and fun car to drive. I thought that the "muscle" cars like from the 60's would never come back. I was wrong. I bought mine with 12500 miles on it, was just broken in and ready to really go!
