Introducing chassis number 1G1Y53D97K5802607, a rare member of an exclusive group with just 965 miles (1,553 km) on the clock, making it an almost impeccable example. As outlined in the C7 owner’s manual, the initial 1,500 miles (2,414 kilometers) may exhibit higher oil consumption, cautioning against engaging in competitive events during this crucial break-in period.

This vehicle represents the epitome of automotive excellence, hailing from the exclusive 2019 C7-generation ZR1 lineup, renowned as the most potent series-production Corvette to date.

With just under 3,000 retail units manufactured, including 2,441 coupes and 512 convertibles, its rarity is further underscored. Notably, among these, the Sebring Orange launch color emerged as the most coveted, with a total of 197 Sebring Orange ZR1 Convertibles produced.

This particular 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Convertible is a 3ZR, the top-tier trim offering abundant features. However, the original owner skipped the ZTK Track Performance Package, which includes an adjustable high wing and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Despite lacking these performance enhancements, both rear wings remain integrated into the chassis, reminiscent of the Corvette Racing C7.R racecar.

Although showing minor scraping on the underbody engine cover panel and carbon-fiber splitter, these issues can be professionally repaired or replaced. Despite the imminent debut of the C8-generation ZR1, the C7 holds a special place in Corvette history as the final front-engine series-production model featuring a unique dual-injected engine.

The 6.2-liter supercharged V8 of the ZR1, combining direct and port fuel injection, delivers 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque. Anticipate even more power from its twin-turbocharged successor, likely surpassing 800 horsepower.
