Spotted in Seattle, Washington is a 2014 Corvette/ RCR Superlite Coupe for $74,000 USD. The seller purchase this Race Car Replica Superlite a couple of years ago with the intended purpose of a streetable track car. He is trying to downsize his collection and this one is next to go since it is rarely driven. It only has 3000 miles on it. The seller says he gets too much attention which I don’t doubt. Its a beautiful design. The car was originally put together at Fran’s shop in Clinton Township and I drove it down to Fredericksburg, Virginia without issue. Evolution Motorsport Engineering then did some additional work with body and door fitment, powder coating and Pearl White wrap which turned out phenomenal.

Unlike the original cars that were made of aluminum , the beck spyders were fiberglass bodies. This ca looks more authentic due to its plexiglass windscreen rather than a speedster windscreen which is all wrong. These are fun cars to drive up Highway 1 along the California coast for not a lot of money.
