There is a reason that new Corvette ZR1’s come with a free 2-day driving course at schools like Bondurant. There is a lot of power in the 638-hp supercharged Corvette and while there are many technological features designed to keep you in control, sometimes
shit happens that can be hard to do. While we don’t know the details of what happened to this Corvette ZR1, we did surmise the following:
Man stomps on accelerator, Corvette ZR1 gets sideways and whacks something really hard. Insurance covers accident and Corvette is put up for sale on eBay.
So we finally have come to the moment in the Corvette ZR1 timeline that we can check-off seeing the first damaged car being sold on eBay. VIN #00427 is a 2009 Cyber Gray Corvette ZR1 that looks like it took a hit to the driverâ€™s rear quarter panel. From the looks of things, that back wheel is gonna need a serious alignment.
The auction details tell of some of the damage:
- Cracks on the left side in the rear tub assembly
- Rear bumper cover is TORN.
- The lower control arms on the left rear are bent.
- This is a fantastic Corvette with numerous features. A sure to please.
The ZR1 in the auction does please with its ZR3 Premium Package and the low 1,227 miles on the odometer. So what does a slightly used, slightly damaged Corvette go for? The opening bid is $75,000 and there is a “buy-it-now” at $97,500.
The auction ends on May 12th. For details, check out the full auction listing on eBay.
