Description

Lot #1614 - The Chevrolet Corvette returns to the racetrack to compete with the likes of Porsche, Viper, BMW and Honda in select endurance races starting with the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona in January. The primary focus is to improve the breed by obtaining valuable engineering information from each lap corvette turns at the race track. From a marketing standpoint, GM wants to show America and the world that hey can modify a $40,000.00 production car to successfully compete with the best in the world at 1/3 the price. This is the actual backup racecar from the Rolex 24 Hour endurance race. It features a modified production corvette LS1 engine capable of 600 horsepower at 7200RPM. This car is not track capable. THIS IS A MODIFIED VEHICLE. NEITHER GM NOR BARRETT-JACKSON MAKE ANY WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, CONCERNING THE VEHICLE, INCLUDING NO WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
