They called it ''King of the Hill''-and when it emerged in 1990, the Chevy Corvette ZR-1 would forever reformat what drivers thought about GM's ever-evolving sports car. Corvette engineers tapped Lotus, GM-owned at the time, for help as they developed the world's fastest production car. They farmed out assembly of the LT5 V-8 engine to Mercury Marine, shipped the engines to Bowling Green, Kentucky, stuffed them in the C4 chassis-and a legend was born. The original ZR-1 staked a claim as the first track-focused Corvette ever. In doing so, it grandfathered the brilliant Corvettes of today-and tomorrow.
