In case you want a new Corvette but just can’t bear to wait for one of the mid-engine C8s to be built, you might want to consider this virtually new 2019 Corvette ZR1 being offered by a Florida dealer.
First, though, you might want to be sitting down when you hear the asking price for this one-year-only C7 Corvette – a whopping $289,900.
We’re definitely not willing to pay that much, even though it’s one of just 2,953 examples of the most powerful front-engine Corvette ever produced.
In today’s heavily inflated COVID market, that price might not be too far out of line, though.
This one-owner ZR1 has the lowest mileage (just 13) but the highest price that we could find during a quick search on Autotrader.com.
That price tag of nearly $300 grand does still include the protective factory plastic wrap on the front spoiler, rocker panels, and huge ZTK rear spoiler, as well as the steering wheel, gearshift lever, and some on the leather seats.
More importantly, the car comes with several important options, including the 3ZR Preferred Equipment Group that adds carbon-fiber interior trim, extended leather, memory package, Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, and Bose aud0io system; ZTK Track Performance Package with Performance Ride and Handling Suspension, Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 run-flats, adjustable high-wing, and specific front-splitter end caps; and Carbon Fiber Dual Roof Package.
Furthermore, it has the Sebring Orange Design Package with Sebring Orange Tintcoat exterior paint, orange-painted calipers, carbon flash-painted aluminum wheels, orange custom leather stitch, orange-painted striped ground effects, Jet Black leather seating surfaces with sueded microfiber inserts with orange stitching, Competition Sport bucket seats, carbon fiber and sueded microfiber-wrapped rim, flat-bottom steering wheel, orange seat belts, ZR1 logo floor mats with orange accents, and bronze-tinted aluminum interior accents.
The most important feature of the ZR1, of course, is standard – the awesome 755-horsepower / 715 ft-lb torque supercharged 6.2-liter LT5 V8 engine equipped with a performance air intake, a dry-sump oil system, a 95mm throttle body, and a multi-mode performance exhaust.
Since Chevy isn’t making any more front-engine Corvettes, it’s likely that ZR1s will be the ultimate Corvette collectible in a few years. However, if you’re still not convinced about paying that much for this car, there’s another one online for just $193,995 – though it does have a “whopping” 447 miles! We also found several examples even cheaper, including one with 12,000 miles for $138,195.
