[VIDEO] Jimmie Johnson Driving Corvette Racing's C6.R

One of the highlights of Wednesday night’s Test Drive: Corvette on SPEED was the segment where NASCAR’s Jimmie Johnson gets behind the wheel of Corvette Racing’s C6.R.

Up Close and Personal with the Corvette Stingray Concept

By now, most of you should be familiar with the Corvette Stingray Concept that was featured in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Last year the Stingray Concept hit the car show circuit which allowed the public the opportunity to take in the sleek, futuristic Corvette. Great, except for some reason it skipped the show in my hometown of Tampa. So when I saw it featured in an advertisement this weekend, I headed to the Convention center for my first opportunity to get up close and personal with Chevy’s popular Corvette concept.

Corvettes on eBay: 1978 Batmobile Replica

We first came across Mark Shields (aka Super Genius) replica Corvette Batmobile in May 2006. A salvaged 1978 Corvette was used as the basis to create the one of kind tribute to Tim Burton’s 1989 reincarnation of the Dark Knight which featured Michael Keaton in the role of the caped crusader. The Corvette is now listed on eBay with a somewhat steep starting bid of $50,000.
