Of the 3,932 Chevrolet dealers in the U.S., only 338 will be getting the new 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. GM has not said how many ZR1s it intends to build, but said it basing the tight allocation to those who have high-volume sales of the Corvettes.
For example, Jeff Cauley, owner of Cauley Chevrolet in West Bloomfield Township, Mich. received a letter saying he’ll be getting four ZR1 when they go on sale in August. “We’ve taken names on a list, and we’ve committed to two of those four cars already,” said Cauley, owner of Cauley Chevrolet in West Bloomfield Township, Mich. “I’m happy to be getting them, but it’s frustrating, too, when you have 60 or 70 people who want to buy one.”
Cauley’s dealership sells about 150 Corvettes a year.
Pricing for the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette starts at $103,300 including $850 destination charges. There will also be a $1,700 gas-guzzler tax along with $12,000 worth of options.
