Could this video show what apparently could turn out to be the first Saleen Corvette ever?
An enthusiast in Los Angeles spotted this unusual-looking car and followed it to see if he could find out more about it.
Lo and behold, Steve Saleen – yes, apparently that one – turned out to be behind the wheel and told the inquisitor that the car was a Corvette-based prototype.
GeigerCars of Germany is no stranger to the world of Corvettes, so it’s no surprise that the tuner company knocked it out of the park with its C7 supercar.
Their latest creation won’t come cheap, but if you want a Corvette Stingray that you won’t see every day on the street, you might want to talk to them.
You apparently just missed out on your chance to own the first Corvette Stingray ever to produce 1,000whp – at what looked to be a bargain price.
Vengeance Racing – saying it needed to make room for a new project – had been offering a 2014 Corvette Stingray for sale on eBay that featured more than $45,000 worth of modifications. The bidding reached almost $72,000, without meeting reserve, before the auction apparently came to an end on Sept. 1. We’re assuming the car sold for an unknown price because the listing says the bidding has ended and the car is no longer available.
The Arctic White Callaway which made its debut at the Bash was the first to be built and Callaway’s reps told us back then that they already had around 50 orders from customers wanting to upgrade their Corvette Stingrays with the supercharged Callaway SC627 package.
Callaway’s Chris Chessnoe posted these photos yesterday on the Corvette Forum of a brand new Laguna Blue Corvette Callaway SC627 Convertible that will soon be on its way to its new owner, who happens to be a woman named Janet.

If you’re not satisfied with the standard 460 horsepower of the 2014 Corvette Stingray, then you might want to talk to the folks at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.
They’ve just released several packages that will dramatically boost the Stingray’s output, starting with a jump to 550 horsepower and climbing in increments of 50 all the way to 750 horsepower.
We’ve spotlighted many of the wild custom cars from GeigerCars, which has been tuning American cars in Germany for 35 years.
Their latest creation, based on the wildly popular 2014 Stingray, isn’t as over the top as some of their previous work, but the car features a custom paint treatment that favors the C6 427 Anniversary Edition with a white base topped with two blue stripes that end on the top of the hood instead of going all the way down to the spoiler like the factory job.
