The one-of-a-kind 2011 ?Jake Edition? Corvette Grand Sport built for the 2010 SEMA show will be auctioned on Friday afternoon at the National Corvette Museum with proceeds going to the new NCM Motorsports Park. Tickets are just $20 and there are no limits on how many tickets will be sold.
The 2011 Jake Edition Corvette was built to showcase the Corvette Genuine Accessories catalog available at the parts counter of your local Chevy dealer. Here is how it was described when it first made is appearance in Las Vegas:
He started off as a discreet logo in 2005 that symbolized a tenacious attitude of the Corvette Racing team and ever since, the skull mascot known as Jake has grown to embody the determination and triumphs of the team. Now, Chevrolet designers have created the Corvette Jake Edition Concept, a special Grand Sport convertible concept vehicle that celebrates Corvette’s racing spirit.
The Corvette Jake Edition is a Grand Sport Coupe, with Z06 wheels featuring the Competition Gray finish. The matte Jake hood graphic from the GT1 commemorative model adds a subtle visual statement, while a host of other accessories round out the car’s unique appearance. Most of the parts added to this special Grand Sport are available today as Genuine Corvette Accessories or through any Chevrolet dealer’s parts department.
Since it was built in 2010, the Jake Edition Corvette has appeared at most of the major Corvette shows and other car related events around the country. It now has approximately 4,300 miles. About the only difference we see on the car from its reveal at SEMA are a set of different Competition Gray wheels.
The Corvette features the GT1 Championship Edition Jake logo on the hood as well as special Jake logo fender badges and center wheel caps. The Corvette also has the racing pedal kit with Jake floor mats. Under the hood is a Jake ?underhood blanket? and Tech-pattern engine cover.
