For a high performing vehicle like the Corvette, no wonder if this car will worth in a million dollars. I wonder if this is the original version or just replica of the car?

Among the model of the Chevrolet, the Corvette is one of the high performing vehicle. And with the impressive power output of the car, I guess its just enough to make the blast in the race track..

Same thing here. I also wonder how much will be the initial bid but one thing I’m sure is that many people will attend the said bid. However, the car has a fast speed performance and a high-power output.
