If there is one project we can really get behind, it’s this 2006 Corvette Z06 made to look like the #3 ALMS GT1 Corvette C.6R. We’ve seen this tribute to Corvette Racing’s 2008 season before when the car appeared at 2008′s SEMA show in Las Vegas. We were amazed then and that feeling returned seeing the familiar pictures of the #3 Corvette C6.R in street form. If you like it too and can cover the $80K opening bid, then the Corvette with the Jake Scrape can be yours!
Corvette enthusiasts have the chance to buy one rare C6 on eBay Motors right now.

Only seven of the cars have been produced, and the one up for sale is only the second one to be offered publicly for sale.

One of the most popular seminars at Corvette Museum’s Bash is the one featuring members of the factory-backed Corvette Racing Team. This year the seminar featured Corvette Racing’s Program Manager Doug Fehan, driver of the #4 Corvette C6.R Tommy Milner and the #3 Corvette C6.Rs Crew Chief Dan Binks.
The trio talk about the ins and outs of the current season which started with a win at Sebring and then a 4th and 5th place finish at Long Beach. Doug talks for just a few minutes and then the team then takes questions from the audience.
