If you’re not first, you’re last.
At least that’s what Ricky Bobby says.
And a Chevy dealership in Georgia apparently feels the same way.
They’re asking a whopping $499,900 (maybe if you’re nice, they’ll make it $499,000 even) for this 2017 Corvette Grand Sport.
But wait, it’s not an ordinary Grand Sport.
This is the FIRST-EVER (note the emphasis) Yenko modded Grand Sport, apparently making it worth a war pension in the eyes of Steve Rayman Chevrolet and the car’s owner, who has consigned it there.
We’re not sure we would ever pay that much for any Corvette, much less one that actually only cost about $120,000 – since the Yenko mods added just $46,000 to the factory MSRP.
Admittedly, the Yenko car boosts the power to 800 horsepower and 750 lb-ft of torque and ups the displacement from 6.2 to 6.8 liters, meaning the car is probably very sick to drive.
But it would make more sense to us to just be patient and buy a new ZR1 with 755 horsepower or ask Callaway to mod a 2019 Grand Sport, but then we’re not filthy rich and able to buy the first Yenko Corvette with slick decals and color-packed interiors.
Maybe we’ll just settle for the 50th ever Yenko Corvette.
But wait, if you’re not first, you’re 50th.
