Here is a Corvette ZR1 for sale on eBay that is worthy of collector car status. This Jetstream Blue Corvette was the first ZR1 produced in the 2010 model year. Wearing VIN #0001, it comes with a 3ZR package and features a Dark Titanium interior and chrome wheels. But here is the kicker: the selling dealer acquired this Corvette directly from General Motors. Although it has just over 3,500 miles, it has never been titled.

Our recent batch of celebrity-owned Corvettes for sale continues to grow. First it was Slash’s black 1966 coupe. Next up was Ace Frehley’s ’78 Pace Car. Now currently on EBay is a 1970 Corvette built for Hollywood’s Farrah Fawcett by hot rod guru George Barris.
Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash isn’t the only hard rocking musician to have a classic Corvette for sale. A 1978 Indy 500 Corvette Pace Car that was purchased new and owned by the former lead guitarist of KISS, Ace Frehley is currently listed on eBay. The Corvette is being sold by Ace’s brother-in-law, who was presented the car in 1980 as a high school graduation gift.
One of the things I love about Corvettes is that you can learn something new every day about them as well as how they fit it to all different niches of America’s car culture in general. For me, today’s lesson comes from the term “Murdered Out” which the Urban Dictionary describes as a vehicle that is black with black wheels and looks very intimidating. So I think you’ll agree this 2004 Matte-Black Corvette Z06 easily fits that description.
Well, you just don’t see these early Corvette Racing C5Rs available for purchase all that often. Offered on eBay is the Pratt & Miller 2001 Corvette C5R chassis #005. The Corvette was first raced at Infineon Raceway in May 2002 by Ron Fellows and Kelly Collins, capturing a win at this first event. Chassis #005 would add wins at Mid-Ohio, Washington DC, Mosport and Petit Le Mans to close out the 2002 ALMS season. In 2003, Ron Fellows, Johnny O’Connell and Franck Fréon would pilot this C5R to a class win at the 12 Hours of Sebring.
One of our favorite models of the C4 era is the 1996 Corvette Grand Sport. Just 1,000 Grand Sports were built and only 190 were convertibles. Combine the historical connotations of the 1963 Grand Sports with the 1996′s Admiral Blue and White exterior, unique VIN and a one-year-only optional V8 engine and you’ve got something that is a collector’s dream.
We first came across Mark Shields (aka Super Genius) replica Corvette Batmobile in May 2006. A salvaged 1978 Corvette was used as the basis to create the one of kind tribute to Tim Burton’s 1989 reincarnation of the Dark Knight which featured Michael Keaton in the role of the caped crusader. The Corvette is now listed on eBay with a somewhat steep starting bid of $50,000.

Missed out on buying a new Callaway Corvette in 1991? Well, now you have a chance to make up for it. This fantastic example is currently for sale on EBay.
After 10 years of Corvette Racing’s dominance in the American Le Mans Series GT1 Class, a run which resulted in 70 victories, eight GT1 Manufacturer Championships and five GT1 class victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Chevy commemorated the end of the GT1 era with the 2009 ALMS GT1 Championship Edition. 600 of the GT1 Championship Edition Corvettes were planned, but the financial downturn and the market turmoil surrounding GM’s bankruptcy resulted in just 125 of the Black and Yellow Corvettes being built. So when we find one of the 125 for sale, it’s kind of a big deal.
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.
