1961 Corvette Roadster Bonhams Auction

As if we needed another reason to want this sexy cherry bomb.

The first-generation Corvette is a star in its own right, preserved to perfection, it includes two-tone red/white with black interior, and is powered by a 283 cubic inch V8 under the hood and a manual transmission.

The two-seat, soft-top corvette was purchased in 2015 at a charity auction in Saint-Tropez, France, and was donated by Leonardo DiCaprio. To sweeten the pot, DiCaprio got 19 of his famous pals to sign the dashboard.

The cherry classic roadster bears signatures that read as a “Who’s Who” of Hollywood. In addition to a signature from DiCaprio, the names include: Sean PennBen Affleck, Christian Bale, Orlando Bloom, Adrien Brody, Matt Damon, Benicio Del Toro, Robert Downey Jr., Jamie Foxx, Tom Hardy, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Brad Pitt, Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep, Channing Tatum, Charlize Theron, Mark Wahlberg and Reese Witherspoon.
