Victory Corvette Coupe
“Sold Out Soon” seems to be the latest marketing push for a European-only limited-edition Corvette released in March 2007. Created to honor Corvette Racing’s victories at tracks like LeMans, the Victory Corvette Coupe feature a go-fast drive train with the 6.0-liter 404-hp LS-2 that produces 403 lb.-ft. of torque. The car includes the six-speed manual gearbox. Only 250 were scheduled to be built..
Now, Chevrolet’s Zurich, Switzerland sales office is saying that the Victory Edition Coupe is “almost sold out.” The announcement explained that “just a few cars are left unsold.” Apparently, Chevrolet has realized that European buyers are ordering the special-edition ‘Vette at a lower than anticipated rate
Each Victory Edition Coupe carries a numbered identification badge in its cabin. Buyers also get a Corvette Drivers’ Training “event” at a European track. The Victory Edition is sure to become a rarity for Corvette collectors in the United States, who may want to hop a jet to Europe and scoop one up. Anyone thinking along those lines better hurry . . . maybe!
