The first Corvette, the first Corvette model to be equipped with a midship engine, was exhibited at an auction and sold for $ 30,000 [about 330 million yen].
The new Corvette C8, which will be launched in 2020, will use a 6.2-liter V8OHV engine in the midship and deliver 495 horsepower. This is the most powerful model of the Stingray so far, not only for its performance but also its sporty design. It was one that attracted a lot of attention when it first appeared.
The first car of the new Corvette wrapped in Red, which was exhibited at an auction held in Scottsdale, USA, received a record auction price for Corvette. It started in the 20 million yen range and quickly rose to 50 million yen, 70 million yen, and 100 million yen, eventually reaching 300 million yen.
Since the corvette was exhibited by GM for charity, all the winning bids will be donated to children in Detroit.
