Harkening back to the days where dealers collaborated with speed shops to produce branded high performance versions ala Baldwin Motion, the HTR-GS640/SC is the creation of Howard Tanner of Redline Motorsports and Dan Carlton of DeNooyer Performance Chevrolet. Take a Grand Sport Corvette, add an Edelbrock E-Force supercharger and host of other upgrades and you got a 640 horsepower ZR1-fighter for just over $82,000.

Check out this former 2008 Hertz rent-a-car Corvette ZHZ that has been customized to look like the 2012 Corvette Stingray Concept that appears as Sideswipe in Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. The Corvette is listed on eBay and with 3 days left in the auction, 6 bids have run the price up to $35,200 with the reserve not yet met.
The best and closest look yet at the new topless Corvette Stingray Concept comes from this cell video which captured Sideswipe in alt-mode on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue during filming of Transformers 3. As the Corvette concept passes a group of onlookers, they collectively gasped as the distinctive Corvette V8 sound rumbled from the stingray’s tailpipes.
Here is a former 2006 SEMA car that was ahead of its time. The Genaddi Design Group heard the requests from Corvette owners early on and built this one-off custom roadster out of a Corvette Z06. It can now be yours for the low, low price of $175K.
Director Michael Bay has turned his 3D cameras to Chicago to provide the backdrop for more robot vs robot mayhem and the new Corvette Stingray Concept appeared to be in the thick of it along with several NASCAR themed Decepticons. Bumblebee reprises his role in the Camaro and Optimus Prime gains a trailer. Exciting stuff for sure!
The 1954 Corvette was never known for its performance. After all, it was originally equipped with a 155-hp straight six blue flame engine and a 2-speed powerglide transmission. But that didn’t stop Timeless Kustoms of Camarillo, California for rewriting history as they resurrected a 1954 parts car into this LS9 powered custom show stopping roadster.
Here are some real world photos of the C6 Corvette-based Rossi SixtySix from its appearance at the Bloomington Gold Corvette show last weekend. While computer renderings are cool in all, it’s refreshing to see a car actually live up to the hype.
Last week we unearthed a picture of the Corvette Sting Ray Concept with its top chopped in Beverly Hills. We were able to point out numerous differences between the original concept car and the convertible pictured which led us to believe it was a kit, albeit poorly done. However, a youtube video has surfaced taken by a bystander during filming of Transformers 3 in Los Angeles that leads us to believe that the Corvette Sting Ray Concept has indeed lost its top for the third and final chapter of the popular movie franchise.
Ahh, Southern California. The land where fact and fiction can blur and what you see may not always be the case. That’s what we think when taking a look at a Speedster version of the 50th Anniversary Corvette Stingray Concept that was recently spotted parked on a street in Beverly Hills.
Here is a beautiful Callaway Speedster that is listed for sale over at Fantasy Junction. This 1999 Corvette C12 Callaway Speedster is one of only two C12 speedsters produced and the execution of this special purpose-built Corvette is by far one of the best I’ve ever seen. Check out some pics of this awesome metallic blue Callaway after the jump.
