1992 Corvette Doug Rippie Black Widow ZR1 #6 For Sale

Bright Red exterior, Black leather interior, both glass and painted tops included. 475hp LT5 DRZ500 "Black Engine" engine, 6 speed manual transmission, 4.09 posi rear-end. Factory features include dual power sport seats, Bose Gold CD/Cassette stereo, electronic climate control, FX3 Selective Ride and Handling suspension, power windows, power locks, power steering, power brakes, power mirrors, power antenna, tilt, cruise control, ABS, traction control. RARE, RARE, RARE!! Here it is -- the be-all end-all of C4 ZR1's! Originally developed to be the successor to the LT5, the "Black Engine", as it came to be known, was produced by Mercruiser, and then sent to Doug Rippie Motorsports (DRM) for reassembly and tuning. The Black Engine included reworked camshafts, cylinder heads, intake, and throttle body for a hefty 70hp gain over even the higher-powered 1993-95 ZR1's. DRM topped off this package with the newly developed Borla catback exhaust system, high-performance clutch, coil-over shocks, and other minor suspension modifications. The engines and intake manifolds were then refinished in a black crinkle finish, hence the name Black Engine. Unfortunately, lagging sales spelled out the end of the C4 ZR1, and just 8 ZR1s (all of which already had owners) were fitted with these modifications. This two owner example shows a clean Carfax, 19,932 miles, and a TON of documents, records since new, and DRM-related literature. We might also mention that this is the ONLY Doug Rippie car painted in the desirable Bright Red! This car's paint is in very good to excellent condition, with a deep shine. ZR1-specific windshield is present, complete with its stealthy radar detector cutout, and typical light de-lamination of the coating. Glass top is in very good to excellent condition, showing no cracks or de-lamination. Weatherstripping on the A and B-pillars is in very good condition, showing just a few typical hairline cracks, and soft rubber. Window sweeps are in similar condition, with no cracks. Hatch seal looks to be original and is still very soft, showing the typical splits in the lower corners. A set of 1993-95 painted GM ZR1 wheels have been added, and are in very good to excellent condition with no curb rash or other flaws. Correct Goodyear Eagle GS-C tires are still mounted, showing an average of 5/32nds tread depth remaining in the front, and an average of 4/32nds in the rear. The interior of this 1992 Corvette Doug Rippie Black Widow ZR1 shows soft factory leather seat covers in very good to excellent condition, very good to excellent condition door panels, and a very good condition steering wheel and center console. Other additions to this car include DRM-installed 4.09 gears, exterior door handle scratch guards, mudflaps, door sill covers with the ZR1 logo, plush C4 logo floor mats, and a car cover. Included literature and other items consists of the original owner's manual portfolio (complete with unused keychain), VHS tape, delivery system cassette tape (sealed), Music System Sampler cassette tape, ratchet for the removable targa tops, April 1994 issue of Motor Trend (featuring a test drive article on a DRM car), June 1996 issue of Corvette Fever (featuring an article on the DRM engines), a photo of all 8 Doug Rippie Black Widow ZR1s taken in front of the National Corvette Museum, "Trends" 1 page article from the January 1994 issue of Motor Trend, miscellaneous copies of Doug Rippie-related articles from various publications, color copy of one page in Corvette Milestones regarding the DRM cars, The Heart of the Beast hardbound book (the definitive book for the C4 ZR1), Doug Rippie parts catalog, invoices for the modifications performed to the car by DRM, copy of an article detailing Jim Van Dorn's (owner of DRM #8) experience in letting Motor Trend use his DRM car for their test feature, a list of contact information for other Doug Rippie ZR1 owners, two sets of keys, and all records since the car was new. Subframe is corrosion-free. Chances of us getting our hands on another one of these cars anytime soon are slim to none -- act now, because once it's gone, it's gone! 19K Miles.
