Chevrolet announced a special 2011 Corvette Z06 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Corvette’s first participation at Le Mans. This one-of-a-kind Corvette (VIN 0001) features the same blue and white color scheme as the 1960 Corvette which won its class at Le Mans 50 years ago and will be sold later this year to benefit the National Corvette Museum. This, however, will not be your traditional raffle or no reserve auction. The NCM is asking for a $300,000 donation to the museum and then a pay out of about $85,000 which is about what the museum paid for the car.

The 2011 Corvette Z06 special edition will be offered with both a Z07 performance package and a CFZ black carbon fiber package. A unique feature will be the side view mirrors painted in Cyber Gray instead of the Black that comes on the Carbon edition.

Saturday’s American Le Mans Series Monterey marks the start of the 50th anniversary celebration of Corvette’s first appearance at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Fans will be able to give the series’ most successful team a spirited send-off before the Compuware Corvette C6.R race cars begin their transatlantic journey to France, where they will compete in the world’s most prestigious sports car race on June 12-13, 2010.

Part of me wants to say, "Oh yeah! another version of the C6 great but another part of me wants to clobber that first part, because this seems really REALLY neat. smiley

Yes, I agree. Why do they sell it on streets when it is good for racing? Are they going to race on streets?

Amazing! This only proves that vette’ is a race veteran on Le Mans.

This is a sweet package! I envy those who get to own one, chances are they are all spoken for. While some folks I’m sure would prefer a 911 over this. I think that GM has some great stuff going on here.

The GT3 RSR is a racing version, not a street car. Currently, Porsche sells 16 different flavours of the 911 for the street in the US if I
can remember them all off the top of my head.
