The National Corvette Museum will be celebrating their 15th Anniversary celebration in early September and one of the high points of the 4-day event will be the raffle of this one-of-a-kind NCM 2010 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe.
The Corvette to be raffled is a collector’s dream. The Arctic White 2010 Corvette Grand Sport features a unique black hood treatment featuring Corvette Racing’s Jake mascot ghost painted in the center bulge, much like those found on the 2009 GT1 Championship Editions. A red stripe outlines the hood graphics and compliments the Grand Sport’s red hashmarks on the fender. The National Corvette Museum logo on the B-pillar adds the finishing touch on this special edition.
Other options on this Corvette is a 6-speed manual transmission, chrome wheels, dual mode exhaust, black headlights and a ZR1 rear spoiler. Inside you’ll find red two-tone leather seats and a audio system with touch-screen navigation.
“You can summarize the car this way,” Tadge Juechter, Chief Engineer of the Corvette said, “Zero to sixty in four seconds; 26 miles a gallon.”
Only 2009 tickets will be sold at a cost of $150 each making your odds of winning very good. The Corvette will be raffled on the final day of the 15th anniversary celebration on Sunday, September 6th at 10:00am CST. Cash prizes are also part of the raffle with a 2nd place winner receiving $10,000 and a 3rd place winner taking home $5,000.
“This special ‘one off’ NCM Corvette Grand Sport coupe was created and inspired by the hard work and dedication of the people who work at the National Corvette Museum,” said Kirk Bennion, Corvette Designer. “The chosen colors of white, black, and red were based on the NCM logo. The stripe design embodies the true ‘passion for competition’ that the Museum has for Corvette’s long racing heritage. The Corvette Museum not only displays Corvette’s history but is also dedicated to presenting Corvette’s latest offerings. This is why we chose the new for 2010 Corvette Grand Sport for NCM’s 15th Anniversary!”
The Museum’s 15th anniversary celebration begins on Thursday, September 3rd when over 5,000 Corvettes will convene in Bowling Green, caravanning from all 48 States. During the 4-day celebration, enthusiasts can participate in events which include seminars, road tours, special displays, parades, auctions, a live concert and the main event which is the official grand opening of the newly expanded National Corvette Museum.
