1990 Chevrolet Corvette C4

In 1990, Chevrolet introduced the ZR-1 package. This was a limited-production, high-performance version of the standard Corvette. The ZR-1 consisted of a 32-valve, daul overhead cam, LT5 engine designed by Lotus Engineering and built by Mercury Marine. To segregate the standard Corvette from the ZR-1 Corvette, an all new convex rear fascia and quad rectangular tail-lights were fitted to the ZR-1.

The ZR-1 was among the fastest street cars being produced during its time. The ZR-1 was discontinued in 1995.

The interior of the Corvettes received a new cockpit design which included analog gauges and digital readouts. The Corvettes became safer with the addition of driver-side air bags.

The standard L98 engine had its power increased from 230 hp to 250 hp.
