Two cars with the same goal but different ways of getting there.
That might be one way to summarize a series of drag races set up by TFL Car between a 2015 BMW i8 Hybrid 2+2 and a 2015 Corvette Stingray convertible.
The first retail 2015 Corvette Stingray with VIN 001 crossed the auction block Friday night at Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas sale inside the Mandalay Bay Casino.

The hammer dropped with the high bid of $400,000 and winning the car was Chevrolet dealer and Corvette collector Dave Ressler.
