When you have a trio of collectible Corvettes for sale and you want to reach a national audience hungry for America’s Favorite Sports Car, you put them for sale on Bring A Trailer. This week our friends at Corvette Mike have three ongoing auctions and they will be fielding any questions you may have on their 1993 40th Anniversary ZR-1, a 2004 Commemorative Z06, and the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport Z07 Coupe offered in traditional Admiral Blue.
Let’s take a closer look at these three highly collectible special editions offered by Corvette Mike on Bring A Trailer:
2017 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe with Z07
Chevrolet officially launched the Grand Sport model for the C7 in March 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show and it quickly became a favorite of Corvette owners. The press loved the new car and it was often referred to as striking the perfect balance while bridging the gap between the base Stingray and the performance-oriented Z06. The Grand Sport combined the widebody of the Z06, along with its base and optional performance-laden Z07 brakes and suspension while its powerplant was supplied by the Stingray’s 6.2-liter 460-hp LT1 V8 with dry-sump oil lubrication.
The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe offered by Corvette Mike is a one-owner car that now only has 4,300 original miles. The buyer checked off nearly every box ensuring that this is one of the most loaded C7 Grand Sports currently on the market. The Grand Sport Coupe is finished in Admiral Blue, the legacy color of the model and with the Z15 Heritage Package, it also has Red hash marks on the front fenders. Inside is a loaded 3LT interior with Twilight Blue Nappa leather-covered seats and the interior carbon fiber trim package.
The original owner outfitted the Grand Sport with the 8-speed automatic transmission and Magnetic Selective Ride Control. The Z07 Performance Package adds the same carbon-ceramic brakes and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, along with beefier suspension also found on the upper-level Z06. The Z07 package added $7,995 to the MSRP and also required the ground effects package which was satisfied by the $3,995 CFV Visible Carbon Fiber aero. And speaking of carbon fiber, the owner also had the Visible Carbon Fiber roof package and the exposed B92 Carbon Fiber weave on the hood. This car had nearly $38,000 in optional equipment included with the original MSRP coming in at $103,310.
The Bring a Trailer auction for this highly-optioned 2017 Corvette Grand Sport Z07 Coupe ends on Thursday, June 24th at 3:30 pm.
2004 Corvette Z06 Commemorative Edition
As the swan song to the final model in the C5 generation, Chevrolet celebrated the success of the Corvette C5R and its class wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a Commemorative Edition. Offered across all three models, the Commemorative Editions (CE) are finished in Le Mans Blue and all have special one-year badging. But it was the Z06 that received the most attention with the first mass-produced painted carbon fiber hood manufactured in North America, a new titanium exhaust system, thinner glass, and lightweight chrome wheels. Exclusive to the Z06 was a distinctive silver/red racing stripe that ran across the top. A total of 6,899 Commemorative Editions were built with the Z06 accounting for a total of 2,025.
The 2004 Corvette Z06 Commemorative Edition offered by Corvette Mike is live on Bring a Trailer. Delivered to Middletown Chevrolet of Delaware with an MSRP of $57,485, the special edition Z06 has only 5,000 miles on the odometer. It’s powered by the 5.7-liter 405-hp LS6 V8 and coupled with the six-speed manual transaxle with a limited-slip differential. Stopping power is provided by larger Z06 disc brakes with red-painted calipers tucked behind the polished aluminum 17″/18″ wheels covered with Michelin Pilot Sport tires.
The Commemorative Edition’s cockpit is all black and features power-adjustable leather seats with a full-color C5 logo embroidered on the headrest. A true drivers-car that includes the aforementioned third-pedal and stick shift, it also has a Head Up Display providing speed, RPM, oil pressure, and other vital data onto the windshield in front of the driver.
The Bring A Trailer auction for this 2004 Corvette Z06 Commemorative Edition ends on Friday, June 25th at 5:29 pm.
1993 Corvette 40th Anniversary ZR-1
Chevrolet celebrated its 40th Anniversary in style by offering a special edition available on the Coupe, Convertible and ZR-1. Featured an exclusive Ruby Red exterior with a matching Ruby Red interior, the 40th Anniversary models had special badging on the sides and “40th” embroidered on the seat’s headrests. Of the 6,749 total Anniversary Editions built, just 245 were offered on the ZR-1.
It’s hard to imagine a Corvette built 28 years ago would have just 561 original miles on the odometer, but that’s the kind of time capsule offered with this 1993 40th Anniversary Corvette ZR-1. Just like it came from the dealer, the window sticker is still affixed to the windshield and it still retains the protective film covering the optional clear roof panel. All documentation with books and manuals are included, as is the new car smell that still permeates the cabin.
The 1993 ZR-1 is powered by the 5.7-liter Dual Overhead Cam 405-hp LT5 V8 engine and mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. In addition to the 40th Anniversary Package, the ZR-1 also featured leather adjustable 6-way power sport seats, selective ride & handling, a dual roof package, and a Delco Bose music system.
This 1993 Corvette ZR-1 will soon be available for bidding on Bring A Trailer, but for more pre-sale information and photos, check out the listing at CorvetteMike.com.
