A rare 2012 Chevy Corvette ZR1 Centennial Edition with just 29 miles on the odometer will be auctioned off at Mecum’s Indianapolis sale this weekend.
General Motors rolled out the Centennial Edition package (RPO ZLC) for the C6 Corvette Z06 and C6 Corvette ZR1 back in 2011 to celebrate Chevy’s 100th anniversary. All Centennial Edition packaged-equipped ‘Vettes were painted in Carbon Flash Metallic and featured stain black graphics, red brake calipers and 100th anniversary badges bearing the likeness of Louis Chevrolet himself. Inside, the package added Alcantara fabric with contrasting red stitching, stitched 100th anniversary seat headrest logos and a microfiber suede-wrapped steering wheel, shift boot and center console lid.
It seems the original owner of this 2012 Corvette ZR1 Centennial Edition thought it’d become a collector’s item one day, as they never bothered to take the protective plastic off the steering wheel. Not only that, it seems this car has never even been driven since it left the Bowling Green Assembly plant in Kentucky almost ten years ago. The 29 miles on the odometer are delivery miles only, so the lucky buyer of this supercharged sports car will be the first person to open up the taps on the 6.2L LS9 V8 engine. The car even has the original window sticker still affixed to the windshield!
In addition the Centennial Edition package, this sixth-gen Corvette also left the factory with the optional 3ZR equipment package, which added creature comforts like a Bluetooth head unit with navigation, heated sport seats, a power passenger seat, Bose seven-speaker audio system and a power telescoping steering column, among more.
According to Mecum, the original buyer of this Centennial Edition Corvette ZR1 paid nearly $130,000 for it. Check out the listing right here before it crosses the auction block in Indianapolis this week.
