Briggs Cunningham was a gentleman racer who is credited with creating America’s first sports cars following World War II. He dominated the American auto racing scene from 1950 to 1963, during which time he also built one of the most competitive American auto racing teams in Le Mans history. In 1960 he took three specially modified Corvettes to the 24 Hours of Le Mans where they would compete on the world stage of racing. Of the three Corvettes, it was the No.3 Corvette racer that would take the checkered flag, winning its class and finishing 8th overall.
Following the 1960 Le Mans, the three Corvettes were restored back to stock condition and sold, their new owners never knowing about their significance. Years later, Corvette restorer Kevin Mackay would track down the winning Corvette and it was acquired by Corvette collector Chip Miller who had it restored back to its Le Mans racing livery.
Corvette enthusiasts know Chip Miller from his co-founding with partner Bill Miller the famous Corvettes at Carlisle show in Carlisle, Pennsylvania that attracts some 5,000 Corvettes yearly, along with other automotive shows appearing under the Carlisle Events banner. It was sad news when the Corvette community learned of Chip passing in 2004 from the rare disease known as amyloidosis. Your donations for tickets helps fuel support for the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises money to support the reseach into Amyloidosis, the rare disease that took the life of Chip Miller in 2004, and one in which 3,000 people are diagnosed with annually.
Cunningham Automotive is celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Briggs Cunningham’s triumph at Le Mans to create the first new Cunningham Corvette in 60 years! The new Cunningham C8 Corvette is a modern-day tribute to those historic Le Mans racecars. Powered by a naturally-aspirated LT2 motor tuned to 600 horsepower from Lingenfelter, the Cunningham C8 Corvette features a high-flow carbon fiber intake manifold, CORSA Performance headers, and a tuned suspension with a motorsport-derived aero kit. The bespoke forged aluminum HRE wheels are modeled on the racing Halibrand Kidney Bean wheels used on the original 1960 Le Mans-winning Cunningham Corvettes.
We invite you to hear the ferocious exhaust note from the 600-hp 60th Anniversary Cunningham C8 Corvette here:
Only 60 of these special Anniversary Corvettes will be produced and those ordering them can select the same livery color combination as the original 1960 Corvette Le Mans racers. The grand prize Corvette is the No. 33 which is offered in the No.3 livery with blue racing stripes, red accents and the No. 3 on the wing.
