The very FIRST 2009 Competition Sport Package Z06 was raffled off last week courtesy of the National Corvette Museum. The lucky ticket #54 won William Leighton of The Woodlands, Texas this beautiful Z06 prize.
This raffle was yet another event planned to continue the weeklong C5/C6 Birthday Bash celebration! Tickets for the raffle cost $450 each, though the vehicle equates out to a $77,500 purchase. Mr. Leighton, lucky enough, also has the option to receive his new prize at the museum in a celebratory delivery fashion. Not too shabby!
Funds from the raffle go toward purchasing the next museum’s raffle car. General Motors graciously gave the museum the opportunity to buy the first Z06 for the event. “We are excited to have the first VIN representing this extraordinary Corvette model to use as a fundraiser,” states NCM Executive Director, Wendell Strode. “We appreciate the allocation from our friends at GM allowing us the chance to purchase this car for use as a fundraiser, and look forward to meeting the winner when they take delivery at the Museum. We hope that by continuing to offer these raffles to benefit the Museum, we are also giving someone an opportunity to become a Corvette owner that might not have had the opportunity.”
