Want to be the first to get your hands on a new 2009 Corvette ZR1? In 14 days, head on over to the Barrett-Jackson auction as we've just heard the first ZR1 will be going up for auction as part of their "Muscle Car Wars" marketing of a sale of the first 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8, a Shelby GT500 KR and now a 2009 Chevy Corvette ZR1. Don't they know we've already got the "Muscle Car Wars" thing trademarked? We'll take our royalties in either cash or any mix of the above acronym-obsessive vehicles from the BJ auctioneers. Full lot quote from the folks all about the BJ after the jump. Oh — and did we mention the Barrett-Jackson folks think it's a "ZR-1 CONVERTIBLE?"
