Could the world’s fastest C8 have a new home soon?
Stay tuned for more details!
West Coast Exotics has hooked up YouTuber/car builder/racer Emelia Hartford with a mystery person said to be interested in buying her Arctic White/Orange mid-engine Stingray.
Since Hartford was already going to be near West Coast Exotic’s garage anyway for a friend’s wedding, she agreed to talk there via mobile speakerphone to the person interested in buying Phoenix, as Hartford has lovingly nicknamed her car.
After hearing an initial offer of $180,000, Hartford could really take a lesson in salesmanship as she responded: “Just to be completely transparent with you, it is the world’s fastest Corvette right now but it does need new clutches right now.”
Not the best sales pitch, huh?
Of course, it may be a moot point anyway as Hartford says she still has goals she’d like to accomplish with Phoenix, like smashing the 9-second barrier.
“I’m not tired of building this car yet,” Hartford admits.
“I love driving it, I love racing it, and I love the fact that it’s such a modern platform where I’m constantly learning something new every time I work on her and the more we build her. I think it’s something I’m going to have to think about. I don’t know, maybe you guys think I’m crazy.”
