Ridetech’s 48-Hour Corvette Is Going Up For Auction At Barrett-Jackson With No Reserve

No Reserve means it sells regardless of whether someone bids $5 or $500,000. We’re pretty sure it’s going to take more than couch change to purchase this bad boy, but we’re excited to see just how much. The 48-Hour Corvette is the second 48-Hour build and it was even more in depth than the famed 48-Hour Camaro we started with. And did we mention that is also got a full freshen up this year? With all new paint and everything? Yeah, there are tons of killer parts and bad ass history with this car, including a Goodguys Autocross Championship. It’s a car that can perform like none other on the track and on the street. We want this car and you will too.

Here is the Barrett-Jackson Catalog Description:

This custom Corvette was initially built in a 48-hour time frame in front of many thousands of website viewers. The project started with a 68,000-actual-mile Arizona Corvette. Since the initial build, the car has been continuously refined – having accumulated dozens of race victories, Design and Engineering awards and top-five finishes. It won the 2017 Optima Ultimate Street Car Challenge in Bowling Green as well as the Goodguys Autocross National Series Championship for 2017. Completely street-legal, this Pro-Touring Corvette features a custom-built Lingenfelter 649hp 427ci LS7 dry sump engine with forged internals and titanium valves. Engine and drivetrain specifications include Holley EFI, C&R radiator, Tremec T56 Magnum 6-speed manual transmission with overdrive, Quartermaster triple disc clutch and Currie 9″ IRS rear end. The complete RideTech Track 1 suspension system includes billet aluminum spindles, tubular StrongArm control arms and high-tech Instinct electronic adaptive shock absorbers with electronic traction control. Like modern supercars, the Instinct electronic shocks self-adjust to changing dynamics, including soft dampening for comfortable street driving and firm dampening for high-performance driving. Additional specifications include massive Wilwood disc brakes with 6-piston forged calipers, Vintage Air, custom Classic Instruments gauges, a Kicker stereo, BFGoodrich Rival tires and Forgeline wheels. The screaming yellow paint is accented by custom flares, custom LED and projector headlights, custom-fabricated rear spoiler, front spoiler, gas fill trim, side vents and C7 Corvette Z06-style hood vents. The 48-Hour Corvette has just been freshly repainted and serviced. The car is selling with minimal decals installed for a more street-friendly appearance; however, a fresh set of race livery decals from the 2017 season are included with the sale to preserve the car’s winning history.

    This Corvette makes me crazy (short trip), I HATE yellow paint and I LOVE C3 Corvettes and this ones bad to the bone. If I had the finances (I don’t) I would be there to bid on it, own it and then paint it! and drive it hard.

    That’s a great looking build unlike some of the stuff that happens when it’s a promotional tool for a company. Top shelf spec on the parts too, must be a blast to drive at an autocross or open track day.
