January may be the middle of winter but GM was able to rebuke the cold weather with red-hot sales. The company delivered nearly 195,000 units in the U.S., a 16 percent increase compared to the same month last year.
The C2 Stingray features an accident-free fiberglass body crafted by Corvette Restorations AZ. Along with the immaculate body, a couple of bolt-ons were added to make it more aggressive and functional, while the fenders were shaped to perfectly frame the 18-inch Foose Nitrous Thrust wheels.
Someway, somehow this “creation” managed to fetch over $40,000 on eBay. Needless to say, this surely proves there’s absolutely no accounting for taste.
Funnier still is reading the description on eBay about this one-of-a-kind Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Concept replica. But we’re less amused by the fact that this replicar meant they had to destroy a perfectly good 2008 Corvette.
They even recommend that you can service the vehicle at any local shop or dealership since it’s all Corvette. Could you imagine pulling up into your local dealership with this creation and asking them to do an oil change? And best of all they even take the liberty to warn you that if you’re the owner of the car be prepared for the crowds of people that will swarm you asking for photos while valet drivers fighting over who gets to park it.
And since this company went so out of their way to deface this perfectly good Corvette, we’ll insist you to visit the eBay auction and make sure you check out the fantastic grammar, spelling and… oh just go already, we’re getting nauseous just thinking about it.

The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Concept made its original debut at the 2009 Chicago Auto Show, but that hasn’t stopped somebody from preparing a new, topless variant.
Speculators think that since the car was spotted in Beverly Hills has led some to believe that this car is being used in the filming of the third Transformers movie, and considering GM’s partnership with the movie (remember Bumblebee’s stint as a Camaro?), we wouldn’t be surprised to see this one appear.
Gone are the Lamborghini-style doors of the coupe (for obvious reasons), and different wheels make appearance, along with a new front end with traditional, rather than LED headlights. We wouldn’t hold our breath for this to be produced any time soon, especially since Corvettes have notoriously long product cycles.
