Spotted this Corvette ZR-1 on Juhu Versova link road today. This is not the green Corvette which had participated in Speedrun. That was a DL registered one. This is a MH registration. The wheels have also changed since the last spotting in March.

Yup I saw this one a month back and it's parked visibly in one of the buildings opposite to Mantralaya. Also saw it being floored on Reclamation a few days back.

Hey wait a minute, the rims seem to have been changed in the last month between my spotting and V12's. Somehow I like the old ones, classic.

Going by the VIN number on the car - this seems to be :

1992 Corvette ZR1
Engine Type = LT1

Nice pictures of the 'vette, flyingspur.

No way that's a ZR1.The C4 ZR-1 came with a roof mounted stop lamp,quad exhausts and ZR-1 badging on the flanks as well as rear. The silver car is a standard C4 'Vette.

Here's an original ZR-1 rear pic for reference:

You are right Ayan. I stand corrected. The VIN has the letter P which identifies the motor as "P – LT1 5.7L Multiport Fuel Injection V8 (1992-1996)".
