Even though Chevrolet conceived Corvette as a “blue collar“ sports car that any hard working regular guy could afford, over the years some Corvettes became very expensive high dollar items suited for the wealthiest of collectors. Here is top 5 most expensive Corvettes in the world.
- 1963 Grand Sport
The ’63 Grand Sport is a holy grail among Corvette fans. Only five of these pure racing cars were built, but unfortunately, they didn’t have much chance of proving themselves on the race tracks. They are rarely up for sale but expect the price of 6 to 8 million dollars for this piece of history.
- 1969 Corvette ZL1
The ZL1 Corvette is so rare that for many years people thought that it didn’t exist. Only two are left in existence,each with a very interesting history. That is why the ’69 Corvette ZL1 costs around 1.5 million dollars and possibly more as the prices of classic cars are going up.
- 1967 Corvette L-88
The gorgeous C2 Corvette had its peak in 1967 with a big block L-88 version. It was rare, expensive to buy and very powerful. That is why this version is worth around 1 million dollars today and highly sought after by collectors all around the world.
- 1969 Corvette L-88
Almost identical as the ’69 ZL1 but with improved powertrain from ’67 L-88, this Corvette was very fast and capable sports car in 1969 with lots of racing success. That is why you can expect to pay around $500,000 for one in perfect condition.
- 1953 Corvette
The first year Corvettes have always been favorite with collectors since those were the first Corvettes ever, and they were quite rare with only 300 hand built examples made. They were all white with red interior and equipped with six cylinder motor. Today, around 200 of them exist and each one is valued over $300,000.
