Last week GM announced a special package of racetrack upgrades for the 'Vette and Z06 dubbed the Corvette Competition Sport (CS) package and now, the General has released pricing. The cost of a base Corvette coupe with the package is $55,655, a bump of $3,350 over a 1LT coupe with the Z51 option pack and NPP exhaust. The price of a CS equipped Z06 is $77,500 w/ DFC, a jump of $2,725 over a 1LZ Corvette Z06.

As outlined before, the kit includes the Z51 Performance Package, the NPP performance exhaust system, a differential cooler and a set of racing pedals. Power peaks at 436 hp on the base Coupe and 505 hp on the Z06. Besides the steak, there's a bit of sizzle. Visual mods for both versions include Competition Gray stripes, wheels and headlamps, a special engine cover, and the "Jake" and CSR logos inside and out. A set of racing numbers will also be delivered to the buyer based on the particular car's build sequence.

      That looked like a pretty sweet package. The paint scheme is awesome, and it includes my favorite vette wheels. ...and then I saw the numbers on the side, and I threw up in my mouth a bit...

      For the budget minded, it might be a nice upgrade, but to make a variant of the Vette with the ZR1 available almost makes you want to point at it and laugh. Ok, I really did laugh at it. Any other year without the bad ass ZR1 and it might be ok, although I think the paint scheme fails regardless.

      Those graphics are awful. Looks like a cheesey pace car edition.

      Detroit really — and I mean REALLY — needs to hire some GOOD graphic designers. Their graphics suck.

        absolutely. it looks like a local dealer slapped some crap on it so they could charge 4k extra for a "limited edition".

        mazda dealer tried to do that with me, spray painted emblems gold. wanted $$ for it. I told them I wanted a discount because I'd have to pry off and replace the tacky emblems.
