General Motors has built a one-off “Hero Edition” Corvette ZR1, which will be raffled-off for charity. The car will be paired up with a 1967 Corvette 427 convertible and will be given away to the lucky ticket holder at the end of the year as a part of the Win The Vettes Corvette Dream Giveaway.

Proceeds from the ticket sales will go to help the Kids Wish Network and is on honor of the group’s Hero Program, which recognized children who have courageously overcome traumatic circumstances.

The Corvette ZR1 Hero Edition is a one-of-one vehicle and comes complete with special graphics, a red engine cover and additional carbon fiber parts.  Oh.. and don’t forget the factory 638hp supercharged LS9 V8 engine.

Corvette Racing team members Ray Krawczyk, Harlan Charles and Tadge Juechter have all signed the car as well.

Tickets are just $3 with the draw being help December 23 – just in time to make someone’s Christmas wish come true.

    What a great way to get people to help the wonderful charity. Sometimes I feel like one of them. I hope this generates a whole lot of money to help these kids. We all need to feel how wonderful it is to help someone. God Bless this charity.

    The link given above to purchase tickets doesn’t seem to work. Anyone else have the same problem?

    Who won the corvetts that was advertized back in the fall? There was two to be given away.

    Original ad showed the 1967 convert, plus the hero version of the newer model. But when I go to the link, it shows a 2011 giveaway already won. That was a 1963 coupe and the 2011 hero model. The links show to win a mustang give away or a outdoors give away. I wanted to try to win the ’67 vette and the 2012 model vette. Any suggestions for the real deal. Don’t really want the mustangs, although they are nice also.
