LMC is proud to offer for sale this 2009 Corvette ZR1
The Chevrolet Corvette (C6) is a sports car that was produced by Chevrolet for the 2005 to 2013 model years. The sixth generation Corvette is the first with exposed headlamps since the 1962 model. Production variants include the Z06, ZR1, Grand Sport and 427 Convertible.
The Corvette ZR1 is a legend in its own time, having been awarded numerous “Car of The Year” awards from major automotive magazines and TV shows around the world. For the body, carbon fiber is used on the roof, hood, fenders, front splitter, and rocker moldings. To finish these Corvettes GM painted the hood and fenders while the roof and splitter were merely covered in a clearcoat, retaining their black color. An important design feature was the polycarbonate window placed in the center of the hood, allowing the engine intercooler to be viewed from the exterior. At the time, the wheels were the largest ever placed on a production Corvette, increasing in size and diameter over the Corvette Z06. Braking is provided by ZR1 exclusive Brembo carbon ceramic brakes which have calipers finished in Tacoma blue, an accent color also found on the engine intercooler and ZR1 logo. Equipped with magnetic ride control, this system allows the driver to select shock stiffness settings based on preference or road conditions. All that remained was for Chevy to supply enough
performance for some fun. The LS9 supercharged 6.2L V8 produces 638 HP and is paired with a 6 speed manual and limited slip differential with a 3.42 ratio. The ZR1 can reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, blast through the quarter mile in 11 seconds and reach a top speed of 205 mph. Its performance rivals that of million dollar barely legal European ultra-exotic cars, yet is as drivable at normal speeds as a base model Corvette. Truly memorable performance for a car that meets all of the latest emission standards and can deliver surprisingly good highway mileage.
This is an absolutely stunning Corvette ZR1 that displays a mean machine personality. At the request of our customer and at tremendous expense , we transformed this factory original silver ZR1 into a truly one of a kind Corvette.
The custom Black Chrome paint is extremely rich looking, unique and adds a magnificent level of class to this ZR1. Another top of the class feature of this ZR1 are the addition of very special HRE Hi-Performance
Wheels that nicely compliment the exterior and stance. These black custom wheels are mounted on wide Michelin Pilot radials that ensure grip in the corners. The interior features the very desirable optional 3ZR package complete with navigation and heated seats. The comfortable black leather interior compartment contains all the modern conveniences like Bose sound system with full Bluetooth integration. This like new 2 owner low mileage example has traveled only 6,383 miles and is in beautiful condition throughout and comes with a clean Car Fax.

- 1 of 88 Factory Green Panteras
- Marti Report
The Pantera (Italian for “Panther”) was a mid-engined sports car produced by the De Tomaso car company of Italy
The car was designed by American designer Tom Tjaarda and replaced the De Tomaso Mangusta. Unlike the Mangusta, which employed a steel backbone chassis, the Pantera was a steel monocoque design, the first instance of De Tomaso using this construction technique. The Pantera logo included a version of Argentina’s flag turned on its side with a T-shaped symbol that was the brand used by De Tomaso’s Argentinian cattle ranching ancestors.
The car made its public debut in Modena in March 1970 and was presented at the 1970 New York Motor Show a few weeks later. Approximately a year later the first production Panteras were sold, and production was increased to three per day.
The first 1971 Panteras were powered by a Ford 351 cu in (5.8 L) V8 engine that produced a severely underrated 330 hp (246 kW; 335 PS). Stock dynos over the years proved that power was more along the lines of about 380 hp (283 kW; 385 PS). The high torque provided by the Ford engine reduced the need for excessive gear changing at low speeds: this made the car much less demanding to drive in urban conditions than many of the locally built competitor products.
Several modifications were made for the 1972 model year Panteras. A new 4 Bolt Main Cleveland Engine, also 351 cu in, was used with lower compression ratio (from 11:1 to 8.6:1, chiefly to meet US emissions standards and run on lower octane standard fuel) but with more aggressive camshaft timing (in an effort to reclaim some of the power lost through the reduction in compression). Many other engine changes were made, including the use of a factory exhaust header.
The Pantera offered here is 1 of only 88 factory Green ones built as verified by the Marti Report. The car was restored to drive, use and enjoy. It has a rebuilt 351 Cleveland with an electronic ignition, a custom exhaust and updated cooling system including an aluminum radiator with electric fans and vents. Braking power has been improved with Wilwood calibers, aluminum hats and custom rotors. The suspension has updated control arms, bushings and sway bars along with an adjustable rear engine spreader bar.
This rare Pantera has an outstanding appearance with gorgeous Green paint, a mint black interior and factory style updated 17” polished wheels on Michelin Pilot Sport tires.
Included with the car is the Pantera Technical Information Binder, service and restoration invoices and the Marti Report.
