Drive Train and Suspension and other interesting Facts:

The base model of the 40th anniversary edition was equipped with the LT1 engine while the LT5 was used in the ZR-1.  The LT1 produces 300 horsepower from its 5.7-liter displacement engine. The compression ratio of the LT1 is 10.4:1, producing 330 ft.-lbs. of torque and reaching red-line at 5,700 RPM.  The LT5 generates 405 horsepower and produces 385 ft.- lbs. of torque . The LT5 has a red-line of 7200 RPM and a compression ratio of 11:1.  A ZF six-speed transmission was standard on the ZR-1 and an option while the 700r4 automatic transmission came standard on the LT1 cars.  The ZR-1 has a lower first gear and a different input shaft.   Both models have an independent suspension to produce excellent handling characteristics. The ZR-1 is 4 inches wider than the standard Vette.  If you look at the rear of the car you will see two filler panels, one on each side of the license plate that make up the difference, hence the rear bumper and quarter panels are unique to the ZR-1.  The ZR-1 Option was a $31,683.00 option, the most expensive option ever offered on a Corvette.  When added to the base price of $34,595.00 it made the car a $67,000.00 car, a heady sum for 1993.  Some 6,000 ZR-1s were produced between 1990 and 1995.  1993 thru 1995 are the rarest with 448 (the amount of leftover motors after the 1992 model year) being produced in each of those years with only 243 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary models.
