The most important part of the package is the LT5 engine, pumping out 375bhp in 1990 to 405 at the end of the run in 1995.

The LT5 is the only quad cam V8 engine installed in a Corvette. The all aluminium engine was jointly developed by Lotus and GM and built by Mercury Marine. They were comissioned to built the engine as they had a lot of experience with aluminium engines and the LT5 engine was built in too small numbers for GM to produce the engine themselves.

The ZR1 was only available as coupe and with a six speed manual gearbox. To fit wider rear wheels the rear facia was restyled. Production ended as the new model was about to be launched and it was too expensive to make the quad cam engine compliant with the latest EPA rules.
