When it comes to sixth-generation Corvette Special Editions, the 2009 GT1 cars are pretty unique. With just 125 produced they’re some of the rarest C6’s out there. When one comes up for sale, it’s kind of a big deal. Recently, this black 6-speed coupe showed up for sale on the Corvette Forum.
The GT1 Championship Edition Corvettes paid homage to Corvette Racing’s on-track prowess over the preceding years in their C6Rs. The initial plan was to build 600 total GT1s with 200 each split between coupes, convertibles, and Z06. That would be further broken down between yellow and black cars. All GT1 cars got special VINs. Yellow cars had Series 3 VINs and black cars had Series 4 VIN. Unfortunately, between the 2009 financial debacle and GM’s bankruptcy, just 125 GT1 edition Corvettes were eventually built.
The black coupe for sale on the Corvette Forum is being offered by the original owner and wears VIN #10. The car remains completely stock finished its black and yellow C6R color scheme. It also features all the GT1 requisite features including the top-dog 4LT package, Z51 performance package, dual roof panels, and a ZR1 rear spoiler among other content. The leather wrapped interior sports yellow accents plus GT1 and Jake logos throughout.
Power comes from the standard LS3 which is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.
Since new, the car has covered just 7,000 miles. Looking at the photos, we see a car that presents consistently with that low mileage. The exterior appears shiny and in as-new condition. The interior looks to be in good shape with minimal wear. As usual we always recommend an in-person inspection before buying any pre-owned Corvette. If you’re interested in this unique C6, it’ll set you back $44,900.
