The GT1 Championship Edition Corvette will come with racing inspired graphics, including driver flags and the series championships. The car is available in either black or Velocity Yellow, with black headlamps.
The body of the car will be painted in the ZR1 style with a spoiler and chrome wheels (yuck… really?).
Under the hood, the engine cover will have a special carbon look with yellow Corvette lettering.
The GT1 Championship Edition will be offered as either a coupe, convertible or Z06, with just 100 of each model being made in each color for a total of 600 units.
All models will receive a navigation system and both coupe and convertible will include the Z51 Performance Package and performance exhaust with an optional automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
The GT1 Championship Edition Corvette was create in homage to the successes of the C6.R racing Corvettes which took the ALMS GT1 Manufacturers Championship for 8 years, claimed over 70 victories in the series and won the 24 Hours of Le Mans 5 times.
2009 will make the last year for the C6.R in racing.
