General Motors released a special edition of the Corvette C6 known as GT1 Championship Edition as a kind of tribute to the Corvette C6R Le mans racer and to mark its great achievements as it’s about to start the 2009 season. The package can be had on any C6 variants for $7,840 and features some unique visuals.

The GT1 comes with C6R inspired graphics and also has some of the ZR1’s styling cues like the spoiler and chrome wheels. The interior features a custom leather trimming with yellow stitching and a lot of GT1 emblems everywhere! It’ll be available in Velocity yellow or Black colors with special engine cover with Corvette lettering.  The Zo6 has no performance upgrades but Coupe and Convertible models can order Z51 Performance Package and NPP Performance exhaust as well as 6-speed Paddle Shifter.

Only 100 units of each color will be built and the finished product costs $65,310 for the coupe, $71,815  for the convertible and $86,385 for the Zo6.
