C1 Corvette

Last week the Corvette world was all a flutter over the news that the 1956 SR-2 Corvette Racecar – the first purpose-built Corvette racer built by Chevrolet – is being offered for sale.

The sale of the car is being handled by Corvette Mike Vietro for the tidy sum of $6.885 Million. To help support the sale of the car, Corvette Mike produced this video to show off the car and talk about its outstanding history.

The Corvette SR-2 Racer evokes an emotional response from everyone that sees it. At the time of it’s introduction it represented the highest level of automotive racing design and performance. This was the first General Motors “purpose-built” American Sports Racing Car from the Golden Era of Racing. The SR-2 was the combined spirit of two great men in Corvette History and culmination of many great things that were happening at GM in the early to mid-1950’s.
