Corvette Fun Fact #3
A red 1967 Chevy Corvette L88 is among the most expensive vehicles in the world. In January 2014, a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette L88 sold for $3,850,000. There were only 20 1967 Chevy Corvette L88s produced - and only one of them was red. This rare, incredibly valuable vehicle was incredibly popular at Barrett-Jackson's auction in Scottsdale.

Corvette Fun Fact #8
The 2014 Corvette Stingray can reach high speeds - in reverse. The top speed in reverse for the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray is an incredible 53 miles per hour. That's fast! We do not recommend testing it out for yourself, but we bet it would be fun to try out on a track.
