Now available at our Philadelphia showroom is a 2009 Chevrolet Corvette SV 9 Competizione. If you have never heard of an SV 9 Comptizione you are not alone. In the summer of 2009 in Las Vegas at the SEMA show the SV Motor Company debuted the much-anticipated SV 9 Competizione. Based on the Chevrolet Corvette it was designed to capture the essence of the Italian exotics without all the expensive maintenance that they require. The grand plan was to produce 1000 of these cars that model year. With a catalog of 25 exterior colors, four wheel choices and five interior trim options. SV motors promised that no two cars would be the same. Distinguished by its unique carbon fiber composite body panels, Osram Xenon headlights and extra wide alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero Rosso Tires. The SV 9 features a luxurious interior featuring custom leather upholstered seats and paneling by Mario Levi Spa of Torino, Italy, special woodgrain accents and custom instrumentation. The heart of the car is the LS3 6.2L/450 HP all aluminum V-8 sporting a six-speed transmission and a ANSA exhaust system. The Corvette Z51 Performance Package adds 14.1-inch cross drilled ventilated disc brakes, special shocks, springs, and stabilizer bars. It also includes engine oil and transmission fluid coolers and a six-speed transmission. Unfortunately, less than a year later the man behind SV Motors Joseph "Giuseppe" Viola, was indicted on fraud charges and sentenced to 36 years in prison. That was a death sentence for the SV 9. There would be no production. All the plans for producing this fantastic car were canceled. Only 4 were built. One in Red, one in White, one in Blue, and the Green one that we have here. Performance is 0 - 60 in 4 seconds with a top speed of 190 MPH.To view this 2009 Chevrolet Corvette SV 9 Competizione in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video, visit www.GatewayClassicCars.com or our Philadelphia showroom located in West Deptford, NJ.
