Corvettes on eBay: 2009 ALMS GT1 Championship Corvette #20

After 10 years of Corvette Racing’s dominance in the American Le Mans Series GT1 Class, a run which resulted in 70 victories, eight GT1 Manufacturer Championships and five GT1 class victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Chevy commemorated the end of the GT1 era with the 2009 ALMS GT1 Championship Edition. 600 of the GT1 Championship Edition Corvettes were planned, but the financial downturn and the market turmoil surrounding GM’s bankruptcy resulted in just 125 of the Black and Yellow Corvettes being built.

Corvettes on eBay: 2008 550+ HP Supercharged Corvette

The combination silver/black matte custom paint immediately jumped off the screen to grab my attention. Black Matte seems to be all the rage currently and this Corvette pulls it off brilliantly.

Our favorite non-original L88 Shriner Corvette is back on the market again. The 1967 “L88″ Shriner COPO Corvette crossed the block at Mecum’s St. Charles auction on Saturday where it reached a high bid of $80,000 but failed to reach its reserve price.

Corvettes on eBay: Adrien Brody's 2006 Corvette Z06

This 2006 Corvette Z06 formerly owned by actor Adrien Brody is the latest celebrity-owned Corvette to cross the virtual block on eBay.
