Unique Corvette to be auctioned this month

Auction house Barrett-Jackson is selling one of a kind 1963 Chevrolet Corvette – it has been fully restored from scratch and equipped with General Motors Group’s 1,000 horsepower engine.

Vehicle is constructed on 1963 Corvette base that General Motors created as a direct competitor to Italian Ferrari, German Porsche and domestic Ford GT40 at that time.

Middle build in eight cylinder twin turbo engine of 1,000 hp and 1,240 Nm and a four speed manual transmission allows the car to accelerate to 60 mph in less than three seconds which is pretty impressive.

Although the exterior is clearly designed to celebrate the Corvette’s heritage, technically this is a modern car with many advancements, to illustrate: it has an adjustable Penske Racing suspension, Bear brakes with six cylinder calipers, custom design HRE wheels and wide Michelin tires.
