You Can Now Configure Your Dream Corvette ZR1 Online, Priced From $120k

The online configurator for Chevrolet’s hotly anticipated 2019 Corvette ZR1 is up and running, and Chevrolet has also disclosed the car’s pricing.

First thing’s first: the ’19 Corvette ZR1 carries a price tag of just under $120,000, as we expected. With destination, a base Corvette ZR1 Coupe costs $119,995. Going with the convertible body style brings that price up to $123,995.

Two trims are available at the moment, the 1ZR and 3ZR. The 1ZR sounds like the enthusiast’s choice, as it skips out on luxury features to keep the vehicle’s weight as low as possible – or at least that’s how Chevrolet puts it: “The 1ZR is the ZR1 for Corvette purists who want the lightest car available,” reads the configurator.

That doesn’t mean the 1ZR is a stripped-out model, as it comes with two 8-inch displays, a nine-speaker audio system, a removable carbon-fiber roof panel, Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, 4G LTE Wi-Fi connection and a color head-up display.

Opting for the 3ZR trim brings the cost of the Corvette up to $129,995 and adds heated and ventilated seats, front curb-view cameras, a Performance Data Recorder, navigation, Nappa leather seats, a 10-speaker Bose audio system and auto-dimming mirrors.

While we don’t usually harp on car colors, the Corvette ZR1 has some interesting names for its paint schemes. Corvette Racing Yellow Tincoat, Long Beach Red Metallic Tincoat and Sebring Orange Tincoat all cost an additional $995. Out of those three choices, Sebring Orange Tincoat looks the best. Watinks Glen Gray Metallic and Admiral Blue Metallic are two other paint jobs that look quite good.

Owners looking to get the most out of their Corvette ZR1 on the track will want to tick the box for the $2,995 ZTK Track Performance Package that adds a carbon-fiber high wing, Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires, a performance-tuned suspension and removable carbon fiber end caps for the front splitter. Ticking that box (which, by the way, is also available for the Convertible) makes your ZR1 look like a serious track-day weapon. T

The Corvette ZR1 comes with a seven-speed manual gearbox as standard, while going with an eight-speed automatic transmission is an additional $1,725. Lending a helping hand in building your engine at the automaker’s GM Performance Build Center in Kentucky will cost you an extra $5,000.

As with the Corvette Z06, there are a bunch of interior and exterior options to choose from, including a car cover that turns your supercar into a race car.

You can access the configurator right here – and after spending some time with it, maybe you’ll let us know what your ideal ZR1 looks like in the Comments section below.
