Barrett-Jackson received a $3-million bid for the very first 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C8 to roll off the production line at its January auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, with all proceeds being given to a Detroit educational charity. This mid-engined C8 Corvette with VIN 001 has the Z51 Performance package and the 495-hp 6.2-liter LT2 V8 engine.
First introduced nearly 13-years ago, the Gemballa Mirage GT is a mid-engine supercar based on the Porsche Carrera GT. Despite looking vastly different, the only performance modifications are a quad-pipe stainless steel exhaust system, ram-air intake system, and remapped ECU that boosts output to 670 hp, or to be more specific, 58 hp more than the factory Carrera GT. This one-of-a-kind specimen is headed to auction at RM Sotheby’s with 4,038 miles on the odometer, with an expected selling price between €775,000 – €875,000 ($861,505 – $972,667).
Hyundai has partnered with Uber to develop a Personal air Vehicle (PAV), called the S-A1. It’s designed for vertical take off and landing, thus negating the need for a runway, and can reach a top speed of 180 mph and a cruising altitude between 1,000 feet – 2,000 feet. The aircraft is fully electric and has a multi-rotor / propellers design to decrease a single point of failure and noise pollution.
We have seen the future of fully autonomous vehicles, and it includes the futuristic Audi AI:ME. The automaker touts it as a personal “third living space” where passengers can use eye tracking to communicate with the show car intuitively, like having it order their favorite foods. Put on a pair of VR goggles to enjoy a virtual flight across a spectacular mountain landscape. Plus, all of the technology adapts virtual content to the movements of the vehicle in real time.

This is the world’s only Bugatti Chiron Vainqueur de Coeur edition, and it could be yours for a whopping $3.95-million. It was delivered late last year to its owner and showcased at the Seven Car Lounge in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Despite the listing claiming the car has never been officially driven, the odometer appears to have 374 miles.
