American tech mogul, entrepreneur, and founder of Oracle Larry Ellison’s 2013 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is for sale through San Francisco Sports Cars for $73,000. With less than 2,000 miles on the odometer, according to the photos, this American supercar wasn’t driven much and can be yours for pennies on the dollar.
A quick Bing reveals that Mr. Ellison appreciates a good car. Ellison’s been spotted in high-dollar exotics like the Lexus LFA, at one point commissioned and drove a chrome Cobra, and even enjoys the subtle flex of a Lexus LS 600h L.
Supposedly, he gifted three Acura NSXs to high-performing employees.
This particular ZR-1 has a handful of subtle exterior and interior upgrades that add to the value of an already potent car. Inside, the entire interior’s been given the once over by Caravaggio Corvettes of Ontario, Canada.
Every touch point has been upgraded to leather, from the dash to the door panels. Apparently, the bill for the upgrade is upwards of $48,000. Caravaggio’s website’s list of services supports that claim.
The 2013 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 had an MSRP of around $112,000 and it’s no mystery that one of the biggest pet peeves from owners was a sub-par interior for the price. Looking at the photos, the leather interior upgrades raise the bar of a once dull interior.
Outside, keen eyes will notice a set of CF side mirrors, CF headlight housings, and a slightly restyled bumper.
Looking through Carfax and, for $73,000, this ZR-1 isn’t grossly overpriced. C7 ZR-1’s sell for around $60,000. Keeping in mind the upgraded interior, this ZR-1’s kind of a bargain.
The ZR1 is the type of sports car that needs to stretch its legs. With 755 HP and 715 lb-ft of torque, the traffic-clogged freeways of the Bay Area isn’t the place for this modern American muscle.
If you’re looking for a ZR1 with a bit of history and low-miles, look no further.
