A once-off 2010 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe will be the top prize at a raffle during celebrations marking the 15th Anniversary of the National Corvette Museum.

A unique NCM 2010 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe is set to become some lucky person's collector's item when it goes into a raffle hat in early September. The National Corvette Museum is celebrating its 15th Anniversary and an Artic White Grand Sport Coupe should bring the proceedings some extra glamour.

The special car has features and markings such as a red stripe that outlines the bonnet graphics, a unique black bonnet treatment featuring Corvette Racing's Jake mascot ghost painted in the center bulge, chrome wheels, dual mode exhaust, black headlights and a ZR1 rear spoiler. The interior features a sound system with touch-screen navigation and red two-tone leather seats.

The 6-speed manual Corvette runs an LS3 6.2-litre cast aluminium V8 that makes 321kW (436hp) and 575Nm (424 lb-ft) of torque. It is capable of going from 0 - 60mph in four seconds and can achieve 26 miles per gallon in average fuel consumption.

All tickets will be sold at US$150 each for the entire haul of 2009. A tidy US$300,000 odd in revenue will be made if all the tickets are sold. The car itself has a US$55,720 factory price tag. The Corvette raffle will take place on the last day of the four-day celebrations on September 6th.
