Production of the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 began earlier this month and with Rick Hendrick having paid nearly a million dollars for the rights to the first example of the 755 horsepower supercar, C7 ZR1 #0001 was built to the desired specifications of the legendary NASCAR team owner. Here is the Video and Details on Rick Hendrick's 2019 Corvette ZR1 from Torque News.
A few months back, the rights to own the first 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 retail unit was sold to the highest bidder at a Barrett Jackson auction. That high bidder was NASCAR owner and hardcore car collector Rick Hendrick, who paid $925,000 to claim the first C7 ZR1, so when production began earlier this month, his Corvette was the first to come off of the assembly line.
The First C7 ZR1
As you can see in the video below, Rick Hendrick ordered his 2019 Corvette ZR1 as a convertible with black paint, a black top and Carbon Flash painted wheels. This car has the top-of-the-line 3ZR package with the Jet Black and Adrenaline Red interior, the suede-wrapped interior trim package, the Competition seats, red seat belts, the Performance Data Recorder and the 8-speed automatic on the inside, while the outside features the aero bits of the Track Performance Package, the Carbon Fiber ground effects package, a carbon fiber hood, black badges, red brake calipers and the performance exhaust system.
