Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
The classic C1 to C3 Corvettes are already too expensive for the average car buyer. And the standard C4, despite its great handling may be too low on power for some owners. So the solution is the ZR1, a mighty C4 Corvette that could outrun most supercars in the early ‘90s.
Under the hood, there is the LT4, a Lotus-engineered V8 engine with 375 HP and later 400 HP, quad cam heads and 32 valves. The engine was an engineering marvel and performed exceptionally well. With a beefed-up suspension, gearbox and a pair of extra wide rear tires, the Corvette ZR1 could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. And that makes it one of the fastest cars of the era and a true modern classic today.
