My guess is Jay Leno, I only say this because one of this garage shows he had a c6 zr1 with vin 0001 or something like that. That's my only reasoning have no idea if it's true or not but he'd be a good choice.

The front grill is total Ferrari influenced from various models. The side air scoops look hot and are 100% functional. The way the C7 Z06 should of looked.. has a 250K look. The spoiler is to keep it from floating. Providing 600lb down force at 150 mph IIRC. Bolted to the frame unlike other rear wings. There's a smaller wing for the waxers that have to have a new ZR1. It's not built for the drag racers with NOS and slicks. Wait for the sub 7 minute 'ring time.

All the kids will be fightin' then. Would I buy one if I had the extra cash? No. I'd go for a C6 ZR1. Would I buy one if I won the lottery? ex: $10-50 million. ABSOLUTELY. I'd own a dozen cars and trucks. Funny how Corvette people criticize new Corvettes often. Yes there have been more issues with the C7 and it was rushed to production but things are working out after 4 model years. More than a lot of other forums. They are all Corvettes in any style, model, HP,gen, or color. More positivity and less negativity. Mama said, if you can't say something nice.... If you hate it, thank God you are not going to order one.

I think Jay Leno drove the Carbon 65 on the auction block that sold for 1.3 million, he could afford to buy both the Carbon 65 and the ZR1 both were VIN 0001 if he wanted too.

I missed it, I was told the carbon edition that sold for $1.3 was a Z06? If so why did it sell for more than the ZR1?

Probably because it is a 2018 and you could drive it home from the auction today, the ZR1 will be many months........

The Carbon 65 was auctioned off with President George Bush Jr., and Jay Leno on stage .
Both signed the car. Both had a prior drive in the car.

The charity was Fmr Pres Bush's foundational charity.

The winning bid includes a golf game with both Leno and the Pres.
(no, not kidding, golf is part of the deal).
