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.
Sure, the Tesla Model S Plaid Edition might be the fastest production street-legal electric car when it’s released late next year, but for now, the title belongs to the Genovation GXE. Based on the Chevrolet ZR1 Corvette, this all-electric vehicle boasts a twin-motor powertrain that generates 800-horsepower and 718 lb-ft of torque capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in under 3-seconds, while topping out at 220 mph. Recently, it was officially clocked at 210.2 mph during an aerodynamics test overlooked by the International Mile Racing Association.
