First production Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 sold for $1 million – rpmGo.com

The Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction who took place last weekend had some really attractive cars for sale, especially American muscle cars. Besides the Shelby GT500KR with glassroof, which we wrote about a few days ago, on sale was also the first Chevrolette Corvette ZR1 produced, which got sold for a solid $1 million. Jay Leno, well known for his passion for cars couldn’t have missed the auction, and he was the one that drove the car to the block.

The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is the fastest car ever produced by General Motors, being powered by a supercharged 6.2 liter LS9 V8 engine, which develops 620 hp and takes the car from 0 to 60 in 4 seconds and to a top speed of over 200 mph (320 km/h).
