Hagerty Insurance CEO McKeel Hagerty was asked which current crop of new cars will be the future’s most collectible. His list names the Corvette ZR1 as #2 behind the Dodge Viper. Rounding out the top 5 is the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, Ford GT and the Porsche Carrera GT.
In adding the Corvette ZR1 to this list, Hagerty said:
“This is the Corvette that elevated the model into a new class of world class sports cars. Nowhere has this news been more prominently displayed than on the recent ZR1, the most powerful Corvette to date. And unlike the big block screamers of the 1960s, like the L88, the ZR1 is totally trackable and downright docile.”
Picking which cars will be a future collectible is for the most part a crap-shot. But knowing Corvette owners and the popularity of the brand among collectors, we say the C6 ZR1 is a safe bet to be crossing the auction blocks 30 years from now. The real question is within that time-span, will the ZR1 reach or surpass its original MSRP of $105,000-$120,000?
