A Duntov Turbo Corvette, one of the lesser-known Corvette models, is up for sale on eBay and is being offered at no reserve.
The Duntov Turbo Corvette was a collaboration between American Custom Industries (ACI) and Zora Arkus-Duntov following Zora’s retirement from General Motors in 1975. The Duntov Turbo Corvette should not be confused with the 1979 Turbo Corvette and the 1980 Turbo Corvette, both of which were General Motors prototypes. General Motors did not participate in either the design or the manufacture of the Duntov Turbo as both were the responsibility of ACI.
Ever since getting out football, Brett Favre has let himself go. The former NFL quarterback grew out his beard and his hair got a little shaggy. But now we see that Favre has a new endorsement deal for the MicroTouch Personal Groomer and the little shaver with the LED light finally gets his appearance back under control.
In fact, Brett looks so good by the end of the commercial, he’s taking his wife Deanna out on the town in a Crystal Red Metallic Corvette Stingray Coupe!
Chevy released the amazing 0-60 time of 2.95 seconds for the 2015 Corvette Z06, the fastest time ever for a GM production car.
Equally as amazing is how quickly the Z06 can go from 60 to 0 mph – in 99.6 feet with the Z07 package!
Brembo is the brains behind that stellar performance, and the company recently released a neat video explaining how its carbon ceramic brake system does the trick.

Doug Kinsman was just following orders when one of the judges at a prestigious car show asked him to see if the windshield washers worked on his 1962 Corvette.
Kinsman’s car was being judged last month at Cobble Beach when judge John Ballard requested the operation of the washers.
Kinsman had never tried them so he said he didn’t know if they would work or not.
He soon found out that they did squirt washer fluid, lots of it, in fact – just not in the right place.
Part of our responsibilities when covering Mid America Motorwork’s 2014 Corvette FunFest is the selection of a Corvette for our celebrity choice award. As we wandered Corvette FunFest’s back parking lot looking for the appropriate Corvette, we realized our work would be cut out for us. So many great Corvettes. So many great stories.
That’s when I spotted Mike McGuirk and his son Mike sitting behind a Honduras Maroon 1962 Corvette.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray has been a popular choice for moviemakers.
In this 6-minute, 22-second flick on YouTube called “Stingray the Movie,” produced by Raj Patel and directed by Joe Clarke, we see two men recruited to do a getaway job for a local kingpin who’s described as “a bit of a whack job…bit of a temper.”
If you’re a big Corvette restomod fan and you also love the looks of the classic split window coupes, listen up — eBay has a car that might make you reach for your checkbook. The mint condition restomod coupe with only 2,124 miles on the clock is based on a 2009 Z06 coupe and wears a custom body by Karl Kustom Corvettes resembling the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray split window coupe. The interior has been refinished by Karls for a more classic look of the original SWC.
We’ve all heard and read stories about Corvette owners who, for one reason or another, sold their beloved Vette, but were unable to get the car out of their minds. Years later, when their life circumstances may have changed, they manage to track down and bring their fiberglass friend back into the family.
Scott Bachmann, in the Metropolitan Detroit area, took this story one generation further by finding and repurchasing his late father’s Corvette, and bringing it back home to his family. He was interviewed by WWJ’s Roberta Jasina to find out more about this touching story.
Corvette Blogger has been a regular visitor to Corvettes at Carlisle, but this off-beat look at the largest gathering of ‘Vettes in the entire world by Regular Car Reviews managed to give us a unique look at the goings-on there.
