Chevrolet Pays Tribute to Prince

Chevrolet Pays Tribute to Prince


As everyone has now heard, Prince passed away yesterday at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota at the age of 57 years old. Growing up in the 1980s, his music and movie will always be remembered when I look back at my youth.

One of his biggest hits over his career was Little Red Corvette and for those that didn’t listen closely enough to get the double entendres, it wasn’t about a car. But for Corvette lovers, we’re okay with that and the song is one of the anthems of any red Corvette owner for sure.

We not sure what it was that made us take a closer look at this 1960 Corvette that will be sold next month in Europe. After all, how many of you plan to be in Monte-Carlo on May 14th for the RM Sotheby’s Monaco auction? But the closer we looked, the more we liked the thought of driving this little roadster on the narrow streets and historic cities of Europe.

As an added bonus, the beautiful photography of this 1960 Corvette in classic Ermine White with Red interior and white wall tires with scenes of Monaco serving as the backdrop is all the reason we need to share the details of this American automotive icon.
