Here is a Corvette ZR1 for sale on eBay that is worthy of collector car status. This Jetstream Blue Corvette was the first ZR1 produced in the 2010 model year. Wearing VIN #0001, it comes with a 3ZR package and features a Dark Titanium interior and chrome wheels. But here is the kicker: the selling dealer acquired this Corvette directly from General Motors. Although it has just over 3,500 miles, it has never been titled.
We saw how collectors were all over the first 2009 Corvette ZR1s. In fact, there was a unique set of circumstances that saw the actual production of three (3) VIN #0001 ZR1s. Chevy dealer Dave Ressler paid $1 million at Barrett-Jackson to own the special 1 of 1 RPO BD1 VIN #0001 in January 2008. The first regular production Corvette ZR1 is owned by Jay Leno while the third #0001 car was a pre-production VIN that was part of the captured test fleet. We are unaware of the ownership status of that third #0001 Corvette ZR1.
So this is your chance to own the first 2010 Corvette ZR1 and with the Certificate of Origin, you’ll be listed as the first owner on the title. But this opportunity doesn’t come cheap. The current bid is $155,000 but the reserve price of $189,000 has yet to be reached with just 22 hours to go at the time of this posting.
Here are some photos of the first Corvette ZR1 of 2010:
About the only downside we see with this beautiful Jetstream Blue ZR1 is that Hubbard GM Center painted their dealer name on the rear bumper right under the cross flags logo. How tacky! Its removal should be the part of any purchase deal!
