It’s not exactly the widely hyped C8 mystery mid-engine car, but at least this 1993 mid-engine Corvette – nicknamed the Mysterro – is for sale right now.
You might want to sit down before you see the asking price, though, as it’s kind of steep at 250,000 EUR or $292,283.99 in USD. The seller – who are marketing the car through RaceCarsDirect.com – says he’ll entertain realistic offers, however.
(Update: The seller contacted us and said there is a misunderstanding regarding the asking price. Approximately $300,000 USD is not the asking price, it is an estimated market value of the car. Current asking price is $120,000 US Dollars plus shipping.)
This 1993 INNOTECH Corvette has a rich pedigree, with its body styling being awarded a Czech National Design Award in 1993.
The one-of-a-kind collectible supercar – complete with mid engine and rear wheel drive – was designed and engineered by Design Kral in 1992-93.
In case that name doesn’t ring a bell, the seller points out that the designer, Vaclav Kral, was the best known Czech car designer in the second half of the 20th century and also worked for Porsche several times.
The car made its debut in October 1994 at an international car show in Slovakia after being hand-built in 1993-94. It then made its Czech debut in June 1995 at Brno international car show.
The two-seater speedster features a uniquely styled windshield and no roof, and – this should be a big hit with Corvette owners – has two unique luggage compartments for golf clubs. The interior features a carbon fiber dashboard main panel, fine leather upholstery all around, two Recaro A8 seats, Momo steering wheel and shift knob, and Alpine audio system.
Mechanically speaking, the INNOTECH Corvette has a massive tubular space frame, Corvette C4 parts like suspension components, steering column and braking system, and a 300-horsepower Corvette 5.7-liter V8 engine, hooked to a custom-made American 5-speed manual transaxle.
Twenty-five years later, the car has been driven just 100 kilometers and is listed in “very good original condition.” It’s described as being fully documented, including original tech drawings and build photos.
This one would definitely draw a crowd at the next cruise-in, huh?
