Built in 1964 with serial no. 1, this 1965-specification Corvette Stingray could fetch anywhere from $100,000 to $150,000 when it crosses the block at Mecum Auctions next month.
At first glance you might be inclined to write off this rare 1978 C3 as just some wild experimental design concept. But if you look beneath the cover, it’s packed with 880-horsepower and capable of going from 0 to 96 km/h in 2.5 seconds.
Even if you aren’t a fan of its old-school Batmobile-like styling cues, it’s hard to dispute the rarity factor of a Corvette priced at $6.8 million for an upcoming auction.
After getting a darn-good look at the 1966 Sting Ray featured in the video after the jump, claims that the C2 Corvette might be one of the best ‘Vette generations ever are pretty hard to dispute.
You’re forgiven for being just a little skeptical as to how this drag race between a ZR1 and a supercharged T/A called “Sketchy Vert” might play out.
