230mph 1980 Corvette

Saw it on bring a trailer. Set the 1995 record in its class at Bonnieville.

Offered on eBay in Italy now, $38k bid. No engine.

After the Automorrow '89 tour, one of Luigi Colani's creations debuted a few years later with another design vision, the "Colani Corvette", which was planned to set land speed records at the Bonnieville Salt Flats after the SEMA show where it was on display in late October of 1993 in the large image above.

The Colani Corvette concept was based on the pre '89 white prototype seen in the image above, while the poster design was from 1988. The car was featured in E&M Nov 16, 1988, andCarStyling Jan. 1989. The vehicle was being redesigned for the original Automorrow tour, as seen in the poster below, but was not finished in time.

Work continued on it's progress, and it came to the US to set a new world land speed record on August 23, 1995, at theBonneville Salt Flats. The average speed for the car was 230.928 M.P.H., and was driven by Mike Strasburg.

NO ENGINE BUT EASY TO FIND ONE. UNIQUE PIECE OF HISTORY. CAR IN ITALY. WE WILL TAKE CAR OF SHIPPING . NO RESERVE. PLEASE CALL ME 011 33 613 916 500. CAR CAN BE REMOVE AS ADVERTISE ALREADY. IDEAL FOR MUSEUM OR GO BACK TO BONNEVILLE
