Here’s one of our favorite special editions from the C6 era that you don’t see up for sale often. In 2009, Chevrolet released the ALMS GT1 Championship Edition with great fanfare to celebrate Corvette Racing’s 10th anniversary. The cars were available in Coupe, Convertible and Z06 models and two colors were offered, Yellow and Black.
Chevy had big plans to offer 600 examples with only 100 of each model/color. But the auto recession and bankruptcy reduced the overall production to just 125, making this one of the lowest production special editions ever. Not only that, but the numbers get even lower as you dive into each of the models and color variations.
Up for auction on eBay is one of the 55 Corvette Z06 versions and number 32 of 38 Yellow GT1 Z06s produced. The cars featured grahpics inspired by the C6.R including the Jake stinger hood graphic as well as the ALMS Championships and driver flags on the exterior while inside waas custom leather wrapped ebony leather with yellow accessnt stitching. GT1 and the Jake mascot were embroidered on the seats. A special engine cover featured a carbon pattern with yellow lettering.
The eBay ad runs through Thursday morning at 9:47 am ET and so far only one bid has been received for $50,000 which is below the seller’s reserve.
