The Internet is abuzz with speculation about the upcoming C7 ZR1 that is expected to be available to Corvette enthusiasts in the coming months.
We don’t know any details about how much horsepower this newest Supervette will produce, but speculation is that it will be 750 or more.
But if you’re tired of waiting on the new ZR1 or don’t have the big bundles of cash it will take to buy one, then you might want to consider the performance bargain of the century – a used C6 ZR1 that held the title of most powerful Corvette ever until the C7 Z06 came along.
Last year, we found a 2010 ZR1 in Birmingham, Alabama for just $49,887. Admittedly, the car had clocked more than 75,000 miles, but being able to get a supercar that originally listed for $104,000 before options was still quite a deal.
Now we’ve found another ZR1 bargain, this time at the Cincinnati Automotive Group, located at 2981 Cincinnati Dayton Road in Middletown, Ohio.
And this black-on-black 2009 model has just 13,734 miles on the odometer.
And it’s listed at – get this – only $51,999!
The Internet listing doesn’t provide many details about this ZR1, other than it has HRE wheels, carbon ceramic brakes, Michelin Pilot Sport tires, and navigation. The base car, though, is still pretty loaded, with a carbon fiber roof, fenders, front splitter, and rocker moldings, plus magnetic ride control. And of course, that iconic clear window in the hood announces to everyone who sees the car that it’s housing the LS9 monster motor that produces 638 horsepower, goes from 0 to 60 in less than 4 seconds, covers the quarter-mile in just 11.7 seconds at 127 mph, and has a top speed of a whopping 205 mph.
We’re sure you can get the details from CAG by calling (513) 649-8888 or visit their website at: www.cag513.com.
If you can live without a removable roof panel and the latest electronic goodies offered in the C7, then a C6 ZR1 could be quite the bargain for you – especially at one that’s listed at just a hair over $50,000!
