Someone enterprising realized the future value of this American super car.
With the C8 Corvette about to be unleashed to the public, interest in past generations of the car and especially the more potent versions are at an all-time high. That’s why this 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 hitting the market could cause a feeding frenzy. The odometer shows a mere 12 miles, and considering all the dealer wrappings are still in place, that’s more than believable. Anyone lucky enough to score this ride will essentially be getting a brand new 2009 model year car.
This ZR1 is no performance slouch. If you note the polycarbonate window in the middle of the hood, that’s to let everyone know this ‘Vette is packing a supercharged LS9 6.2-liter V8. This setup is good for a peak 638-horsepower and 604 lb.-ft. of torque, which ten years later is still impressive.
Instead of just be about power, this machine is also a thing of grace. Magnetic dampers combine with Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes and big wheels for excellent control through turns.
Under that silky smooth Cyber Gray paint is a carbon-fiber front splitter, hood, fenders, and rocker panels. The roof proudly displays its carbon-fiber weave, which is a nice fashion statement.
The black interior is absolutely immaculate, thanks to all the protective layers still sitting how they were when the car was delivered. That means no splits or cracking in the leather seats, no scuffs on the plastic, and no other blemishes anywhere.
The ZR1 nameplate has been a thing of legend for the Corvette, a car already steeped in lore. It was first used in 1970 for the C3 and has been brought back for the C4, C6, and C7 with plenty of speculation it will be included in the C8 lineup at some point. Regardless, a car like this will continue to appreciate in value, especially if it’s well cared for. If you’re thinking of making the investment, you can talk details with Classic Auto Mall.
