There was a total of 26,216 C8’s built for the 2021 model year. Of this, the most popular color was Torch Red with a total of 5,171 ordered. Arctic White came in second with 3,769 produced, followed by Red Mist at 3,476. Zeus Bronze came in as the least popular with 509 orders in this color, but Accelerate Yellow was not far above at just 839 units ordered.

Sixty years in the making, the new 60th Anniversary Cunningham C8 Corvette pays homage to the 1960 Corvette that became the first to win its class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Just 60 hand-built examples are set to be created with the No. 33 earmarked for the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation for their annual fundraiser with the car slated to be given away on October 1st. The new 60th Anniversary Cunningham Corvette is a modern-day marvel with the 495-hp LT2 engine upgraded to 600-horsepower by the equally-legendary Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. In order to bring home this limited-edition 60th Anniversary Cunningham C8 Corvette, all you have to do is make a donation to the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation.

Mike and Chuck’s 1929 Duesenberg Model J ‘Disappearing Top’ Torpedo by Murphy
My name is Chuck and I became friends with Mike over the phone buying a 1967 Corvette 435 Convertible 15 years ago. From simple beginnings I became an avid Corvette Collector amongst other more rare and exotic cars like this 1929 “Disappearing Top” Torpedo Convertible Coupe, just one of six examples produced!
