The sixth generation of Corvette houses the 2009 GT1, which is considered to be ultra-rare. Well, it is a bragging right that it deserves, considering that only 125 of these babies were ever produced. With one 2009 GT1 up for sale, many trophy hunters are starting to itch again.
The sale was posted in the ever-reliable Corvette Forum by Kevin McCaffrey–a senior member of the site.
One notable aspect of the GT1 Championship Edition Corvette is that it served as a homage to the prowess of Corvette Racing in tracks and races. Initially, 600 GT1s should have been built–200 coupes, 200 convertibles, and 200 Z06. These categories would be further divided between black and yellow models.
Interestingly enough, these GT1 supercars have unique VINs. For instance, the yellow ones have Series 3 VINs; the black ones, Series 4.
But due to external drawbacks, which was brought by the 2009 economic crisis and the bankruptcy experienced by GM at that time, only 125 GT1 editions were ever built.
The one for sale is a black GT1 coupe. It is wearing a VIN #10. The stock finish is still complete, flaunting its yellow-and-black C6R color tone. Furthermore, it is also equipped with all the essential GT1 perks such as the 4LT package, Z51 package, ZR1 rear spoiler, dual roof panels, and some other more. Its interior looks lavishing, thanks to the well-maintained yellow-wrapped leather upholstery.
Its prowess is driven by the combination of LS3 and 6-speed manual transmission. It has 7,000 miles on its clock, which is still relatively low. As of writing, this limited-edition C6 is still available, with a price of $44,900.
