I’m not much of a betting man, but I’m expecting this one to top the million dollars that the new Z06 coupe pulled down and then some.
I guess if you’re looking to roll out a new company at SEMA, the Corvette is a pretty good car to come out of the gate with.
If the first-generation (E85) BMW Z4 had “flame surfacing”, the C7 Corvette has “blade surfacing”, and that is delightfully apparent when the Corvette’s exterior is slathered in Blade Silver Metallic.
How many people do you know would pass on a 2015 Corvette in favor of $55,000? Clearly, one is Dr. Chuck Schumacher, who when given the option of a Stingray or the money, opted for the cash.
There’s likely to be debate over this one for years, and by “for years” I mean as many years as it will take for hell to freeze over.
