During 1986, General Motors acquired Group Lotus, the UK based engineering consulting and performance car manufacturing firm. The Corvette division approached Lotus with the idea of developing the world's fastest production car, to be based on the C4 generation Corvette. The result was what GM dubbed the LT5, an aluminum-block V-8 with the same bore centers as the L98, but with four overhead camshafts and 32 valves. Lotus also designed a unique air management system for the engine to provide a wider power band by shutting off 8 of the 16 intake runners and fuel injectors when the engine was at part-throttle, while still giving the ZR-1 375 hp (280 kW) when at wide open throttle. In addition to the engine, Lotus helped GM design the ZR-1's upgraded braking and steering systems, and helped them pick the settings for the standard "FX3" adjustable active ride control that Chevrolet was fitting to the car. For the model year 1993, Lotus design modifications were made to the cylinder heads, exhaust system, and valve train of the LT5, bringing horsepower up to 405.

This is an excellent example of the more desirable “big motor” later model ZR-1’s. With 18,078 miles it’s barely broken in. It comes with two tops, one clear and one painted. The Owners kit (including VHS video) and original window sticker are included. Additionally both sets of keys with fobs, one never taken off the original cardboard holder, and the Wolf automotive cover and shop manuals are included.
