The Corvette GT1 Championship Edition is almost entirely a commemorative paint package designed to move some more C6 Vettes and celebrate the success of Corvette Racing. Available in basic coupe, convertible and Z06 trim, the addition of all the graphics, wheels, spoilers and 'Jake' logos only costs $2,350. For a limited-edition run with only 600 set to be produced it's actually quite a bargain — especially considering non-Z06 models get the Z51 performance package thrown in as part of the package deal.
The essence of marketing. Same product, but dressed up with pretty decals to make it look different (therefore it must be better). The decals are a lot tamer than previous ltd ed Vettes, but still too boy-racer for me. It cheapens the car IMO and gives the snooty Porsche guys something to goof on.
