Perfect track day car. Probably the best Corvette to date without the overheating issues of the C7 Z06.
Road legal and registered, so can be financed, full warranty. Standard power train. Better power to weight ratio than the C7 Z06.
New gearbox and torque tube (Oct 2017) replaced under warranty.
The problem with the ZR1 and the Z06 is not a lack of power but the ponderous nature of the handling and ferocious brake pad wear. We were using a set of pads per weekend at $1000+ ($1600 msrp).
Coleman rotors and runs a very mild inexpensive pad. Pads are $500 a set and last numerous weekends.
The stock ZR1 pitches and yaws over hills and has hydraulic lock over stutter bumps. Car has four way Ohlins shocks and 12 additional springs Pfadt adjustable sway bars and replacement bearings.
The car comes with 8 18” Forgeline wheels and new Michelin slicks.
This car is the only Corvette I have seen that can be held wide open over turn four at Barber.
Car is significantly lowered and runs at 2 3/8” at the side skirts.
APR GTC 1000 duel element adjustable wing.
AIM Solo DL data logger and HD Smartcam 2 video camera.
TPMS is defeated so a wheel change does not require a re-sync of the TPMS. We don’t have to run TPMS sensors in the wheels.
Suspension limp home mode is also defeated in order to run the Ohlins coil over suspension.
ODBII error message defeat that prevents limp home mode.
The components above total over $31,000 and are virtually as new.
The car also comes with all the stock components including another two sets of wheels.
This is a visually stunning Corvette in excellent condition with the best of the best chassis upgrades, is reliable, and, has a warranty. Anyone in the market for a track Corvette would be remiss if not considering this car.
