The Siller family started the foundation to honor the memory of their brother Stephen who lost his life on Sept. 11, 2011, as a New York City firefighter. The program builds smart homes for catastrophically injured service members returning home and first responders. Each home is custom designed to the needs of the individual while also being energy efficient, easily accessible, and automated.

The Corvette ZR1 sold tonight is the very first example ever produced. It packs a hand-built supercharge supercharged 6.2-liter LT5 V8 engine making 755 horsepower (563 kilowatts) and 715 pound-feet (969 Newton-meters) of torque. The winning bidder will get to select if they want a ZR1 coupe or convertible and whether it comes equipped with a seven-speed manual transmission with active rev matching or the available eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission.

This 1990 Corvette ZR-1 Has Only 350 Miles

  This 1990 Corvette ZR-1 Has Only 350 Miles I might get some flak for this but I truly believe the 4th generation Corvette is the best generation. Sure it had barely 200-horsepower out of a wheezing V8 when it debuted in 1984 but it also had pop-up head lights, saw blade wheels and looked like a shovel with t-tops. In 1990 Chevy decided to debut the first ever Corvette ZR-1. This new performance package included modified suspension and an entirely new engine built by Mercury Marine that made 375 horsepower. The ZR-1 competed against the likes of Porsche and Lamborghini. It was a big fiberglass Vaporwave wedge and I still think it looks great today.

This is the fastest, most advanced Corvette ever produced. The supercar extensively uses carbon fiber and a sophisticated aerodynamic setup. Magnetic ride control, an electronic limited-slip differential, and Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes are just a few of the performance parts the ZR1 comes with as standard.

When Barret-Jackson announced it was selling the first ZR1 for charity, Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson, said, “We’re incredibly fortunate to have the resources to support wonderful organizations that strive to make a difference for so many people in need. To date, Barrett-Jackson has helped raise nearly $96 million for charity and those funds, along with the generous donations that will be raised in Scottsdale, bring much needed relief to countless people through many great charities.”

It's always nice to see the automotive industry and collectors come together for a good cause.

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is This Year's Indy 500 Pace Car .
Leading drivers in the 102nd running of the iconic raceAfter what felt like years of buildup, Chevrolet finally revealed the Corvette ZR1 in November of last year. With 755 hp on tap and an extreme aero package, the ZR1 has already set a lap record at Virginia International Raceway. Based on our first ride impressions, we have a feeling that won't be the last record it breaks. Next month, at the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500, the ZR1 will also hit the track as the race's official pace car.
