Corvette C6.Rs Finish 3rd and 6th at ALMS Monterey

MONTEREY, Calif., May 22, 2010 – Billed as the warm-up for the upcoming 24 Hours of Le Mans, the six-hour American Le Mans Series Monterey was contested on an unseasonably cold day in central California. With track temperatures in the low 50s, getting a grip on the roller coaster 2.238-mile Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca circuit was the chief challenge.

[VIDEO] Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach 2010: 1966 Corvette 427/425hp NOM

Here is an interesting 1966 Corvette Convertible that appeared Saturday at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Palm Beach. The Triple Black Corvette features a 427/425 hp L72 and is fresh off a restoration, but it comes with a caveat: Originally a 427/425 car, it doesn’t have the original engine. Will the price be affected or will its curb appeal rope in buyers who may be more interested in driving the Sting Ray instead of a storing a garage queen. Watch the video after the jump.

Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach 2010: 1990 Corvette ZR-1

The C4 version of the Corvette ZR-1 was nicknamed “The King of the Hill” for good reason. At a time when the standard Corvette’s horsepower was 245, the 1990 Corvette ZR-1 was powered by the new 375-horsepower LT-5 V8 which featured a 32-valve dual overhead cam. Looking back today, Corvette’s return to the world stage of sports car performance can be directly attributed to this special edition.

Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach 2010: 2009 Competition Sport Corvette

When we published the final production numbers for the 2009 Corvettes, we said thirty years from now Corvette collectors would be seeking out the GT1 ALMS Championship and the Competition Sport Editions due to their low production numbers. Actually, it only took one year as this 2009 Arctic White Competition Sport Coupe sold for more than its original MSRP and became the top seller on Day 1 of the 2010 Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction.

Mecum's Kissimmee Corvette Auction Pulls $6.7 Million in Sales

Mecum’s Collector Car Auction made its annual pilgrimage to Central Florida’s Kissimmee auction last weekend. Florida’s temperate January weather makes this auction a favorite and by most accounts, the auction was a huge success. Record attendance was on-hand to watch 147 Corvettes cross the auction block over four days and everyone must have been buying as Mecum achieved a sales success rate of 81% to total $6.7 million in Corvette sales.

Bloomington 2009:  Twin-Turbo 1991 Corvette Callaway Speedster Sells for $115,000

One of more interesting time periods for Corvette came midway through the C4 production run when you could order a twin-turbo for your Corvette. In 1991, the B2K twin-turbo RPO was the only non-GM performance option that could be ordered on a Corvette. This limited edition 1991 Series 1 Corvette Callaway Speedster is #8 of 10 made and used to be part of the Otis Chandler collection before being acquired by Chevrolet dealer and Corvette collector Bob McDorman.
