This 1991 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is a black widow DRM 600. It is a Doug Rippie Motorsports modified Corvette ZR-1 with just 30,000 original miles. It is one of the few ZR-1's nicknamed the 'Black Widow' due to the black and red finish. The original owner had this ZR-1 modified at Doug Rippie Motorsports and had its engines built in partnership with MerCruiser and Lotus. The DRM600/1G package began with an LT5 350 cubic-inch motor with displacement increased, and oversized cylinder liners, JE pistons, Oliver rods, DRM intake, camshafts, Ported cylinder heads, ported injector housings, K&N air filter, modified air filter lid, 63mm throttle body, and Custom computer calibration. Further modifications included Watson ceramic headers, Borla stainless exhaust, a single mass flywheel, 4.09 rear end gear, aluminum radiator, and Fiske aluminum hand built wheels that are 11-inch up front, and 13-inches at the rear. There are Wilwood 6-piston brakes, coil-over suspension with a lower ride height, polyurethane bushings and a roll bar. Inside, the occupants are wrapped in a 6-point harness system.

With these modifications, the car was capable of producing nearly 550 horsepower and 488 foot-lbs of torque.
