Chevrolet Corvette C6RS Available for Auction
Back in 2007, Pratt and Miller Engineering was asked by GM to develop a road-going version of the C6R racecar as a special gift to Jay Leno. Apparently, the company was impressed by the result and a total of seven units were developed in the end. Back then, the Corvette C6RS was priced at $330,000.
If you are interested in owning one of the seven C6RS models ever built, you now have the chance to win serial No. C6RS003 – a unit specially ordered and built for Pratt & Miller’s official race photographer – at auction.
If you are interested, you can bid on this car on eBay. Currently bid is a little under $110k, but we expect to see it jump up pretty quickly as the end of the auction approaches. Hurry up though, as the bidding war ends on May 19th, 2013.

The C6RS was developed with the C5R and C6R race cars in mind, so it offers several unique features inspired by the racing world. These inspirations include: a carbon-fiber body; a track-oriented suspension; and a ram air induction system with a K&N filter.
The model is powered by a Katech Performance 8.2-liter (500-cubic-inch) all-aluminum small-block V-8 engine that produces 600 horsepower and 600 pound-feet torque. The engine is mated to a T-56 six-speed manual transmission.
