Corvette celebrates Le Mans success with limited edition C6

Corvette C6

Corvettes are a rare enough sight in these parts, but if you really want exclusivity, why not go the whole hog and buy a Victory Edition model?

The car has been built to celebrate Corvette's endurance racing success (including five class wins at Le Mans), and production will be limited to just 250 models.

Based on Corvette's C6 sports car, the Victory Edition has a 404bhp 6.0-litre V8 with the choice of six-speed manual or automatic gearboxes.

Distinguishing marks for the limited-run model include unique grey alloy wheels, yellow or black paint and a subtle rear spoiler.

Inside, there's black and red leather, and a smattering of carbon fibre for that racy look.

There's also a numbered plaque in the cabin to tell you what number your car is in the limited production run.

The best bit, though, is that Victory Edition owners are invited to a free driver-training day at race tracks across Europe.

Prices start at £51,285 for the manual version and £53,685 for the auto.
