2023 Scottsdale Auction Week

The Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction is known as the largest car show and auction in the country. The 2023 auction kicked off at WestWorld in Scottsdale and will not disappoint. It has a record number of cars for auction.

The CEO of Barrett-Jackson, Craig Jackson, says more than 1,900 cars are signed up for the event this season. “It’s an undertaking and it has to click. We sell a car every two minutes,” said Jackson.

The Barrett-Jackson auction is the main event this year, but not the only auction in town. Both RM Sotheby’s (January 26) and Bonhams (January 27) have some very high-quality cars going across the auction block this year.

If you are able to make it, be on the lookout for Mike. He is already there looking at cars for our clients.

Win this 2023 70th Anniversary Edition Corvette Stingray 3LT Convertible!

The E-Ray is official and here is what we know

Just as we thought, Chevy officially announced the new 2024 E-Ray Corvette. Most of the specifications were as the rumors suggested. The new E-Ray is basically a Z06 with the stock base C8’s LT2 and an electric motor under the frunk.

The electric motor powers the front wheels and produces 160 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque. When combined with the LT2 and performance exhaust, the total output is 655 hp. That is 15 hp shy of the 2023 Corvette Z06, though the E-Ray sprints from 0-60 mph in 0.4 seconds quicker at just 2.5 seconds. It also covers the quarter mile in 10.5 seconds, the same as the Z06 in tests.

The battery is quite small by today’s standard at just 1.9-kWh, and it is mounted in the center tunnel. The battery pack adds about 100 pounds to […]

E-Ray To Debut The 17th

2024 E-Ray hybrid 1/17/23

The new 2024 Corvette E-Ray hybrid-electric sportscar will debut in one week per a new teaser from Chevrolet.

“After 70 years, we’re introducing one like none,” Chevy writes. The teaser video above includes quick shots of the 2024 Corvette E-Ray as it drives in the snow and on the street, and while there’s no narration, we get to briefly hear the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine rev and burble.

Chevrolet will introduce the newest C8 Corvette model on January 17th. If that date sounds familiar, it’s because 70 years ago on that same day in 1953, the Chevrolet Corvette made its public debut at the GM […]

The wait is over – C8 Z06 LT6 In Stock!

C8 Z06 LT6 Break-In

Do you have one of the early Z06’s? Are you getting one soon? If so, it is very important to break it in correctly, and the miles required are different if you are running it on the road vs. the track.

The main recommendation about the engine break-in is that the vehicle should not be pushed too hard for the first 500 miles for street driving and 1,500 miles before track use. The car should be driven at varying RPMs and speeds and not pushed to the redline regularly unless necessary. To make this easier for the driver, the digital tachometer will show a 6,600 RPM redline before hitting the 500-mile threshold. Even though the tachometer will show the redline, the engine will allow the owner to push past this.

The  Z06’s eight-speed dual-clutch transmission also requires a break-in period, and as such, the onboard […]

Corvette C8 and Z06 Production Notes for December 2022

c8 assembly line

Photo Credit: Larry Smith

Christmas is right around the corner, Chevrolet only has two more weeks of Corvette production scheduled for 2022. Our friends at Corvette Blogger ran the numbers and updated where Corvette Production currently stands.

It looks like Chevrolet produced close to, or will have surpassed, 21,150 C8’s. 19,500 of these are base C8’s. Approximately 1,650 are 70th Anniversary Stingrays.

Speaking of Stingray’s 70th Anniversary package, Corvette Blogger reports that customers are buying the White Pearl Tri-Coat versions over the Carbon Flash Metallic by nearly 4 to 1.

As for the 2023 Z06, the plant is continuing its ramp-up process and producing around 18-20 per day for a total of 300 Z06s. Of these 300, 36 […]

Corvette Z06, Porsche 911 GT3,
and Audi R8 V10 Drag Race

Video brought to you by WeatherTech!

This is the challenge I wanted to see. Naturally aspirated, rear-wheel-drive, performance cars using mid-mounted naturally aspirated combustion engines without any electrification.

Between EVs and forced induction, automakers are finding alternative ways to make high-horsepower machines. However, this video shows that the Audi R8 V10 Performance Spyder, Chevrolet Corvette Z06, and Porsche 911 GT3 still offer plenty of straight-line speed. Plus, a Ducati Panigale V4 SP2 is ready to challenge them.

In terms of numbers, the Corvette Z06 is the top dog in this race. Its 5.5-liter naturally aspirated V8 with a flat-plane crankshaft that pumps out 670 horsepower […]

Corvette To Become its own Brand!

In 2025 the Corvette name will not just refer to the car as it will be a sub-brand without the Chevrolet nameplate.

The Corvette Z06 we know and love will be under the new Corvette brand. It will also include an unannounced EV 4-door coupe and a sporty, high-performance EV SUV. That will bring the total number of models under the Corvette Brand to eight (joined by the ZR1, E-Ray hybrid AWD, the fully electric C8, and the Zora).

The hybrid and full EV models will use GM’s Ultium platform for enhanced shape, stance, and engineering flexibility. Engineers behind the architecture designed it for a range of model sizes, styles, contouring, and performance capabilities with up to 800V […]

First up is an Elkhart Lake Blue Z07 with the 3LZ Blue interior. Next is a 70th Anniversary Convertible in White Pearl without a Z07 package.

While Chevy will let you configure your perfect 2023 Z06, unfortunately, the new Corvette Z06 is no longer available to order. In August, GM Authority reported that the 2023 Corvette Z06 production was heavily constrained by supplier delays. Since then, supplier setbacks have deteriorated even further, with GM no longer accepting orders for the new Corvette Z06. It’s unclear if GM will reopen orders or if they will instead wait for the 2024 model year to take more orders.

The two body styles listed on the configurator include a Coupe and a Convertible. Trim levels include the 1LZ, 2LZ, and 3LZ. Notable upgrades include the Z07 Performance Package, which throws in Z07-specific suspension […]

2023 Corvette Production Update

2023 Corvette Production Update

white 2023 70th 1

Chevrolet has not published official production numbers, but Corvette Blogger has used VIN numbers to calculate where they stand as of October 14th. Using the VIN’s reveals that 14,718 base coups and convertible C8’s have rolled off the assembly line, another 840 of the 70th-Anniversary Edition, and only 31 Z06’s (17 “regular” Z06s and 14 70th Anniversary Editions) have been built and are on a quality control hold at this time. This equates to an estimate of 15,558 C8s built so far for the 2023 model year.

This news comes as the plant has been shut down again this week due to the ongoing supply chain shortage. Even when the plant reopens on Monday, October 24th, […]

Corvette Racing is splitting the team into two parts in response to rule changes

corvette racing

In response to all the rule changes by IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and FIA World Endurance Championship for the 2023 racing year, Corvette Racing is expected to go from 2 cars per race down to single entry per race.

Confirmation of the immensely successful manufacturer’s plans for 2023 is said to be imminent, and Corvette Racing’s traditional two-car effort at the 24 Hours of Le Mans could be coming with a reduction to a single entry. Factory Corvettes have been a staple of the French classic since first debuting in 2000.

As the top prototype class swells with participants at the 100th anniversary of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, it’s believed the massive global interest in being on the grid […]

C8 Z06 Testing by Road and Track

2023 C8 Z06 Testing by R&T

Great news! According to Corvette Blogger, the 2023 Corvette Z06 is being tested by Road and Track for its annual Performance Car of the Year (PCOTY) award! We do not have a list of the other contenders in this year’s lineup, but you can be assured that the C8 Z06 will do extremely well, especially if they take the cost into account.

In the past, the PCOTY was held in October, over four days, 700 miles, and countless arguments to determine the best sports car. Road & Track editors and invited Track Club members comprise the testing. The winner isn’t based solely on raw performance data; gut instinct plays a role as it is the intangibles that matter. Is it the best version the manufacturer could make? Is it worthy of the title? Most importantly, does it excite the reviewers?

We are eager for the […]

Callaway Supercharged C8 Corvette

Callaway Kind Of Announced a

Callaway, a household name among Corvette enthusiasts for tuning and improving Corvettes, made two announcements at Corvettes at Carlisle last week. The first is a supercharger kit for the C8 Corvette. The second is a 35th-anniversary package celebrating their partnership with GM.

The supercharger kit won’t be sold as a standalone system but instead will be sold through authorized GM dealers on a turnkey basis. The actual installation will be at Callaway’s Connecticut or California facility and then shipped to the selling dealer.

Current C8 owners can also have their cars upgraded through the “Second Chance” program, but more details have yet to be released. Customers can reserve a serialized production slot with a $1,000 deposit at this time by contacting Callaway directly.

The Callaway supercharged C8 Corvette will come with a three-year/36,000-mile […]

The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

A unique Duesenberg reprised its early role as Concours winner by taking the top prize at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. 

This year, 220 cars from 19 countries and 33 states pulled onto the competition field of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The car named Best of Show was the 1932 Duesenberg J Figoni Sports Torpedo of Lee R. Anderson Sr.

“This rare Duesenberg marries American might with European style,” said Concours Chairman Sandra Button. “It did well in some early rallies and concours. Then, its history took a turn, with chassis separated from body. The story of its resurrection is one of pure passion.”

An American car last won Best of Show in 2013, when a 1934 Packard Twelve took the […]

Christian von Koenigsegg Says the C8 Chevy Corvette Is ‘Mind-Blowing’

The C8 Chevrolet Corvette cracked the domestic mid-engine sports car code when it was revealed in the summer of 2019. Sub-three-second zero to 60 runs and a V8 behind the driver typically meant six-figure price tags—but not anymore thanks to GM. Despite it being in a class of its own due to its roughly $60,000 starting price and performance specs, it’s caught the attention of automotive bigwigs such as Koenigsegg founder, Christian von Koenigsegg. In conversation with him at The Quail during Monterey Car Week, Koenigsegg told me how impressed he was with the ‘Vette’s value.

“What a bang for the buck,” said Koenigsegg. He explained he wasn’t just impressed by the C8’s price, but also joked about feeling relieved that his cars could “still outrun it.” Yeah, it would be awkward if they couldn’t. And if you think Koenigsegg wouldn’t be excited over something as low-dollar as America’s sports car, think again.

Stunning Dual-Ghia Selling On Bring A Trailer

This incredible car is a high performance vehicle from some unlikely sources.
When you first see this car many of us might wonder what exactly it is because of its wild style and unique design. The front fascia is something akin to that of the Thunderbird while the rear fins remind us of a classic Cadillac from the 1950s and early ’60s. Of course, this is wildly different from what the car actually is as the body was designed by an Italian company, Ghia, dedicated to style and aerodynamic performance while the engine was provided by the Dual Motors company of Detroit, Michigan. So what exactly is this stunning vehicle which seems to have roots in multiple automotive cultures?
