As we’ve stated before, history is littered with special Corvettes. Earlier this week, we highlighted a special C5 Corvette, which coincidentally also has Pratt & Miller roots, but today Lingenfelter has provided as a brief video to discuss a special C6 Corvette.
In 2007, General Motors approached Pratt & Miller, which has run Corvette racing programs since 1998, to commission a street-legal version of the GT1-class C6R. In total, seven of these Corvettes were ever built, ringing in at a cool $330,000 price tag.
Powered by a small-block, 8.2-liter V8 engine and mated to a six-speed manual transmission, it’s no wonder Ken Lingenfelter holds the keys to such a special Corvette, which also features a weight-saving, carbon-fiber body.
Check out the video above, and be sure to make a stop next time LPE opens its collection doors for an open house at this real rarity.
