GM releases Corvette GT1 Championship Edition

Corvette GT1 Champ fq

Although General Motors is shutting down it’s High-Performance Vehicle unit, the automaker still believes a special edition is in order to celebrate the the entry of the Corvette C6.R into the GT1 class of the ALMS (American LeMans Series) this year. Potential purchasers can choose between the Corvette Coupe 4LT, Convertible 4LT or Z06.

The 2009 Corvette GT1 Championship Edition comes swathed in the same yellow hue that adorns the C6.R, along with a “Jake” graphic that spans the Championship edition’s hood. Chrome wheels and a body-colored spoiler pulled from the ZR1 join a “carbon pattern” engine cover, while inside a leather-wrapped ebony interior gets “GT1” embroidered on the seats, instrument panel and center console armrest. Those who opt for non-Z06 models also get the Z51 Performance Package and NPP Performance exhaust, and only 100 units of each model (600 total) will be made.
