The Chevrolet Corvette has been a key player in the automotive industry; each generation ensured the American car industry's survival and showcased the technical prowess America had to offer. Be it on track or off track, the marque has shone bright, and back in 2009, it was time to celebrate 70 victories and eight championships at the American Le Mans series. To commemorate this victory, Corvette released a limited edition run of 125 units based on the 6th generation Corvette. Standing out in the world of Corvettes is a tough job but this 2009 Chevrolet Corvette GT1 Championship Edition we have today sure does this job well. With just 21,000 miles reported on the clock, this particular car is reported to be signed by Ron Fellows, a three time GT1 Championship corvette racing driver; it's also reported to be the only GT1 that Ron Fellows has signed as well.
The championship package played a big part in the car's visuals; the velocity yellow and gray stripe exterior makes this 2009 Chevrolet Corvette GT1 Championship Edition a sight to behold. It’s also made even rarer with the owner reporting that this is 1 of 29 yellow coupes produced. There are GT1 emblems throughout the car and if you look at the rear, the car sports a carbon pattern engine cover and a ZR1-styled spoiler for added effect. In terms of shoes this Corvette sports chrome wheels. The black interior of this 2009 Chevrolet Corvette GT1 Championship Edition also sees GT1 emblems present throughout the interior. This being a low-mileage example means all its interior components are in good condition from the black GT1 leather seats with yellow stitching to the original 6-speed Corvette gear knob.
The GT1 was built to resemble a great racing car, and it’s nice to note that this 2009 Chevrolet Corvette GT1 Championship Edition with its Z51 Performance Package ensures that the Championship package on it is not just visuals to make it stand out. Underneath the hood lies a 6.2L V8 LS3 motor that's good for 500hp. The V8 powertrain can breathe freely thanks to an NPP performance exhaust with an X pipe; the seller is unsure whether the system is OEM or aftermarket. A six-speed manual transmission sends power to the car's rear wheels.
