There’s been some pretty exciting news on the Corvette front this week – namely the unveiling of the long-anticipated C7 Corvette, complete with the comapny’s first 7 speed manual gearbox! As a tribute to this 60 year old car, I thought I would share our Corvette coverage from the 2012 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. In 2012, Road & Track featured a selection of one-of-a-kind concept Corvettes, and the event included a Marque Car Road Tour featuring, among others, custom Corvettes.
One of my favorites from the event was the 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Scaglietti Coupe (below) which looks a lot more like a Ferrari than a ‘vette. One of only three, this Corvette has all the underpinnings of that reliable Chevrolet muscle, but the body was designed and manufactured by Sergio Scaglietti of Ferrari fame. Enjoy!
P.S. Top Gear fans – come March, you may find some of Deremer Studios coverage of the 2013 Concours featured on TopGear.com. We’ve confirmed with the folks at Top Gear that we’ll be sharing our photographic coverage with them for the 2013 Concours! Pretty exciting stuff!
