Autotrader Find: 1990 Chevy Corvette Race Car

If you’re looking for a Chevy Corvette that goes beyond the norm, this particular example is precisely that. What you see here is a 1990 Chevy Corvette that’s also a factory-built race car — an impressive resume, made even more impressive by the fact that this is one of only a handful of these made that also raced.

According to the description in this ad, this is an “R9G” Corvette race car, which was the name of the option code dealers could order to specify a race-ready Corvette. These cars got improved engines, transmissions and more, with the intent that dealers or owners would take them racing. Only 23 were built, as they were only offered for one week during February 1990, and this add suggests that just eight actually saw track time.

This particular R9G Corvette has seen just 648 original miles, which is an impressive figure — made even more impressive by the fact that it’s never been titled, meaning it’s still technically “new.” With that said, given that its 648 miles are likely all on the track, “new” is a relative term here — but it certainly hasn’t been passed along to many people, unlike many other rare older vehicles.

If you’re interested, this Corvette is offered by the Toy Store in Largo, Florida, and it’s listed for $69,000. That’s big money for a C4 Corvette, of course, but this is a pretty special Corvette — and you could even race it if you wanted, returning it to its former glory days.
