Chevrolet had big plans to commemorate Corvette Racing‘s 10th anniversary in 2009 with the GT1 Championship Edition. But, the Great Recession and GM’s looming bankruptcy curbed production of the special Corvette from 600 units, to just 125.
Of the 125, 17 are convertibles, seven were black, and only three housed a manual transmission. This one, however, is one-of-one. Why? The special Corvette is the only one to have made its way to Callaway for the SC580 package with 580 horsepower, thanks to a 2.0-liter supercharged paired with the 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine.
Better yet, as if the exclusivity isn’t enough, it has just 1,657 miles on the odometer after nine years. Aside from Callaway’s workings, the GT1 Championship edition included C6.R-esque graphics, black headlight surrounds, chrome wheels, and a ZR1-inspired spoiler. Ebony leather seats with yellow color-contrast stitching adorned the interior. Cauley Chevrolet also painted the graphics onto the car, which were originally vinyl, and installed a Specter Werkes Sports Group 6 Aero Package.
The car is currently for sale at Cauley Ferrari in Michigan with a price of $99,900. One day, this will be an even rarer bird.
