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.
