Pratt & Miller Engineering runs the highly successful Corvette factory racing team in the American Le Mans series (ALMS). Pratt & Miller also builds its own mega Corvette, the C6RS. At first glance, you may think that the C6RS's $187,500 price is a typo. On top of that, the number doesn't include the cost of a customer-supplied Corvette Z06 donor car. But before you write off the C6RS as a slightly less powerful ZR1 for more than double the price, you have to look at the details. The standard fiberglass body panels are replaced with a wider, full-carbon-fiber set of duds modeled after the Corvette ALMS racing car. Under the hood lies a 600-hp, 600-lb-ft, 8.2-liter V-8 - complete with a billet-aluminum-block - built by engine partner Katech Performance. The suspension is height-adjustable, and the transmission is fully blueprinted. The list goes on and on. The result is one of the most well-sorted Corvettes we've ever driven. The C6RS rides well on the street and is wonderfully balanced on the track. The giant engine is a masterpiece of pure, normally aspirated power - sometimes, there is no substitute for displacement. Sure, you can get a Ferrari 430 Scuderia for the same money as the C6RS, but if you're looking for the ultimate Corvette, Pratt & Miller delivers.

General Motors planned on building approximately 427 examples of the Chevrolet Corvette ZO6 427 edition, but the last - car number 427 - is being auctioned for charity. The car will roll across the auction block this weekend at Barrett-Jackson’s extravaganza in Scottsdale, Arizona, and all proceeds will aid the American Red Cross in its efforts to help victims of the Haitian earthquake.

If our review of the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 leaves you depressed because the darned car weighs so much (3324 lbs), maybe this Katech Z06 ClubSport package will cheer you up. Reducing a performance car's weight just might be the next big thing and Katech is looking to be a leader in this game. They dropped the weight of a Corvette Z06 from 3180 lbs to 2915 lbs, or 2825 lbs if you choose the fully optimized package.
