Believe it or not, the C8 Corvette Z06 is apparently just as fast and the C7 Corvette ZR1!

Speaking of performance, ever since YouTuber Emilia Hartford built her own twin-turbo C8 “Vette” – the most powerful one in the world – we knew the race was on. And now, someone else has built an even more powerful one.

This Five-Car Mashup Rendering Is the Epitome of Unfulfilled Desire

Automakers, please produce this wild mashup of a supercar!

Renderings often serve as a fun expression of what we expect from new cars or the evolution of current cars. Sometimes, people create fun, unique renderings that look back on iconic cars from the past with a modern twist of what they would look like today. Every now and then, however, something truly amazing comes to digital life, and that’s the case with the rendering we’re about to discuss here. In short, someone took styling cues from a handful of cars that are iconic in their own right and created an all new car that has never existed and never will exist. Is this what it would look like if some of the greatest car companies in the world came together to build a truly unique supercar?

The First Production 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Just Became the Fourth Most Expensive Vette Ever Sold at Auction

The first production C8 Corvette went for an impressive $3 million at Barrett Jackson’s 2020 Scottsdale Auction

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C8 is living up to the hype after the first-production model carrying VIN 001 sold for a staggering $3 million at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. Hendrick Companies founder and CEO Rick Hendrick placed the winning bid, adding what could be one of the most desirable Corvettes in history to his extraordinary collection of American performance cars.

The first-production Corvette Stingray C8 also becomes one of the most expensive Corvette models ever sold at auction, trailing only a handful of classic ‘Vettes, including a 1967 Corvette L88 Coupe that still holds court as the most expensive Corvette ever sold in an auction setting. It fetched $3.85 million back in 2014, coincidentally, at the same Barrett-Jackson auction that the first-production Corvette C8 was sold.

The Hennessey C7 Corvette ZR1 HPE 1200 Can Kick the Hell Out of a McLaren 720S
