Final Production Numbers for the 2009 Special Edition Corvettes

2009 Competition Sport Corvette

Thirty years from now Corvette collectors are going to talking about the two special edition Corvettes that rolled out of Bowling Green in 2009. That’s because the two qualities collectors covet – high performance and limited production – have all but guaranteed the GT1 Championship Edition and the Competition Sport Edition a special place in Corvette history.

According to Chevrolet literature, the Competition Sport package was built for the owner who attends driving schools and track events. The edition was available in both Z06 and Z51 coupe configurations and featured performance options like the differential cooler, NPP exhaust and heads-up display.

The Z51-equipped 1LT coupe version was priced at $55,655 while the Z06 1LZ model was listed for $77,500 including charges. Only 72 CSC Corvettes were built and here is the production breakdown:

Competition Sport Quantity
Coupe – Arctic White 13
Coupe – Blade Silver 39
Z06 – Black 10
Z06 – Blade Silver 10
Total: 72

2009 GT1 Championship Edition Corvette

The GT1 Championship Edition was built to commemorate the 10 years of Corvette Racing’s successful run in the American Le Mans series. That run included over 70 victories, eight GT1 Manufacturer Championships and five GT1 class victories at the 24 hours of Le Mans.

Essentially there were six versions of the GT1 Championship Corvettes built. The GT1 Championship Edition was available in Coupe, Convertible or Z06 models with your choice of Velocity Yellow or Black. And because it was a commemorative model, the GT1’s race inspired graphics feature Corvette Racing’s Jake mascot ghost-painted on the hood bulge as well as years of the championships and driver’s National flags.

Pricing for the GT1 Championship Edition started at $65,310 for the 4LT Coupe, $71,815 for the 4LT Convertible and $86,385 for the 3LZ Corvette Z06. Although 600 were planned for production, only 125 were built. Here is the production breakdown:

GT1 Championship Edt Quantity
Coupe – Black 24
Coupe – Yellow 29
Convertible – Black 7
Convertible – Yellow 10
Z06 – Black 17
Z06 – Yellow 38

  1. I just purchased a Blade Silver 2009 CSR vette for my wife’s birthday. It came with a certificate that says it is the #53rd CSR built. We had no idea that it was one of only 72 built. I did not realize all the interesting data on this car when it was purchased., I’m still looking for more information on the CSR if you have any that would he helpful.
