Chevrolet CERV II is Beyond Cool and it's For Sale

GM's Ford GT40 fighter that never was.
There was a time when GM was seriously considering building something to go head-to-head with the Ford GT40. That Ferrari-beating wonder built out of spite and revenge inspired GM to up its game like it never had before. Sure enough, Zora Arkus-Duntov, the so-called "Father of the Corvette" was the behind this project. With styling done by legendary designer Larry Shinoda, Arkus-Duntov’s creation was called the Chevrolet CERV II (Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle).

Powered by an aluminum 427-cubic inch V8 which produced 550 horsepower, the car weighs just 1,848 lbs and had a 0-62 mph time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of more than 200 mph. It also has a unique all-wheel drive system with variable power delivery - the first known example of torque vectoring. However, the typical suit-wearing bean counters killed the CERV II project before the car had a chance to race. And now the one and only prototype is set to hit the auction block next month, where it’s estimated to fetch between $1.4 to $1.8 million. Photos courtesy of Michael Furman/RM Auctions.
