2012 SEMA: 1962 Corvette C1RS [Live Photos]
The car has won many awards for its design and will be up for grabs at the famous Barrett Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, scheduled for January 13-20, 2013.
C1RS reinvents the quad headlight look of later C1 Vettes in a new and revolutionary way. Built by Roadster Shop, it features a blend of carbon fiver components and hand-formed aluminum panels.
The chassis and drivetrain are also just as modern. For instance, it’s got remote adjustable shocks, 14-inch vented Brembo disk brakes with 6-piston calipers, three-piece wheels and the piece of resistance: an LS7 crate motor with 618 horsepower mated to a Tremec T56 Bowler 6-speed transmission and Ford 9” rear end.
