Corvettes on eBay: 2008 550+ HP Supercharged Corvette

I was perusing the Corvettes on eBay (over 1,400 Corvettes for sale btw) a little after midnight and came across this stunning custom Corvette coupe. The combination silver/black matte custom paint immediately jumped off the screen to grab my attention. Black Matte seems to be all the rage currently and this Corvette pulls it off brilliantly. Check out more pics and additional information after the jump.

The 1967 “L88″ Shriner COPO Corvette crossed the block at Mecum’s St. Charles auction on Saturday where it reached a high bid of $80,000 but failed to reach its reserve price.

Corvettes on eBay: Adrien Brody's 2006 Corvette Z06

This 2006 Corvette Z06 formerly owned by actor Adrien Brody is the latest celebrity-owned Corvette to cross the virtual block on eBay. Brody purchased the Corvette Z06 new and like many Corvette enthusiasts, he visited the plant in Bowling Green to witness the assembly of his car. Brody even had the opportunity to sign the engine block which he inscribed “Killer Vette” with a skull and crossbones. Now you can own his Machine Silver Z06 which is affordably priced with a “Buy-it-Now” of $46,900.
