Barrett-Jackson is the largest and most extravagant of the five major collector car auctions taking place during the week of January 13. Over 1,200 cars including 125 Corvettes will cross the famous auction block with SPEED providing nearly 40 hours of live gavel coverage. Craig Jackson and his team put on more than an auction…they produce an extravaganza not to be missed.
General Motors has done a great job of hyping the reveal of the next generation Corvette, which will debut this Sunday evening at 7 pm. While the event will be held at an undisclosed location in Detroit with only invited media and paid guests from the National Corvette Museum attending, we are now learning that the reveal will be live-streamed on the internet.
All kinds of new cars and trucks will be on display at the North American International Auto Show in the coming days, but we know there will be one star that will shine brighter than all of them put together: the much-awaited 2014 C7 Corvette.
After unveiling its seventh-generation sports car to a select group of media and guests on Sunday, Jan. 13, the 2014 Corvette will make its official debut as a show car when its shown off to general automotive press on Monday morning, Jan. 14th.
