I could be mistaken, but this may be the same car?

I don’t think it is, but I could be wrong. For some reason I was thinking the car started out crystal red metallic.

I’m sure Chris knows.

Of course right after I typed that I realized that the engine is missing. That makes a lot of sense due to the fact that his car had the first TVS 2300 supercharger and 650hp LS3.

Now I think you’re probably right.

All of the later C16's were 650-700hp

Car in pic was black sapphire. Went to Michigan ;)


Luigi's was one of the few "factory colored" C16s, and the first SC650

Watched it go through... I believe it bid to $81k and a no sale. Personally, I didn't think Mecum did a great job marketing the car.
