Corvette sets record for most expensive ever sold

The Barrett-Jackson auction has some of the coolest cars in the world roll across the auction block each time the auction is held. This weekend a 1967 corvette L88 set a record as the most expensive corvette ever sold. The car brought $3.85 million reports Yahoo .

The car was one of 20 built and was covered in perfect red paint. The auction was hugely successful thanks in part to the Corvette. The auction racked up $248.6 million in sales. Other high profile cars that sold at auctions the same weekend and brought big money included a 1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spyder that sold for $8.8 million.

A McLaren F1 GTR sold for rover a million and a 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS sold for $2 million. That car was apparently unrestored and had been in a garage for 44 years after an engine bay fire.

General Motors CEO Mary Barra Testifies Before Senate Committee About GM's Recalls
The Corvette is America’s sports car and it has been for a very long time. Since its shaky beginnings in 1953, the Corvette quickly evolved and became a performance machine on par with the best the world had to offer. From fuel injection to independent rear suspension to disc brakes, the Corvette pioneered many of the common technological features we find today. Over its 61 year life, the Corvette’s rivals have changed and some no longer exi ...

Corvette Stingray whipped up to 627 hp by Callaway

Sahlen's Six Hours Of The Glen
Filed under: Aftermarket, Convertible, Coupe If you under promise and over deliver, you can never disappoint people, and apparently the tuning mavens at Callaway know that lesson well. When the company announced its latest tuned Corvette a few months ago, it said that it would have roughly 620 horsepower and at least 600 pound-feet of torque. That would have been impressive gains over the stock 'Vette by itself, but the new supercharged sports car has actually been rated at 627 hp and 610 ...
