With only 27 miles on the clock, this 1995 ZR1 costs the same as a new C8 'Vette

Would you have this, or a brand-new C8 Stingray?

One of the headline features of the all-new C8 Corvette was that the base price starts at $60,000. For $67,995 you could have a base-spec car with a few options, and drive it home from the showroom as the first owner.

Alternatively, you could buy this immaculate 1995 Corvette ZR1 for exactly the same price. Resplendent in its Torch Red paintwork, this ZR1 is almost perfect, showing just 27 miles on the odometer, along with being one of the 488 examples built in the final year of C4 ZR1 production.

According to vendors Streetside Classics, the ZR1 has been "properly stored since day one" and is sold in as-new condition, along with its colour-matched targa top and transparent roof panel, allowing the new owner to switch it up as they desire.

Another sign of the originality of this car is that it currently wears the same Goodyear Eagle GS tires that it was delivered from the factory on, but if you wanted to drive this C4, I'd suggest actually swapping the tires out for brand-new offerings. After all, they are the only thing connecting the car to the road.

The interior is also nearly pristine, showing very few signs of wear and being well specced, with power windows, cruise control, power seats and a Bose stereo system. The 5.7l V8 engine has also benefitted from correct servicing over the last 25 years, despite the cars low milage.

Available for sale via Streetside Classics, it will be interesting to see whether the new owner drives the car as intended, or locks it up as an investment. Which would you do?

  • Over priced but ultimately there will be someone prepared to pay so let them have it. Smart money is elsewhere.

  • The c4 is definitely not the most desirable corvette I would probably keep my money and buy a used c7

  • Not sure I understand it, especially the price. If it had about 40-60 thsnd miles on the clock, it would mean that it was used for what it was built ,that it was driven. With 27 miles there it means it just sat in the garage, with all the rubber parts degrading, tyres getting older, etc and etc. I totally understand the appeal for that car that some people might have, but I don't think I would go for it

  • I would buy it to drive the crap out of it.

  • Normally I would call trash. But there is one line that jumps out here, "properly serviced since day one despite low miles". This car is ready to go. It's able to be driven as it was meant to be. It should not have any plastic or rubber deterioration. Since the engine was serviced properly there shouldn't be any problems. Drive it!! BEAT IT. Most importantly have fun!
