9. Superformance Corvette Grand Sport
Okay, it’s not exactly the newest model, but it sure has the coolest story. Zora Arkus-Duntov designed this car for General Motors in 1962 and the plan was to do a small production run of 125 cars. However, Zora had much bigger dreams for the car. He wanted to win the GT class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with this model. Sadly, General Motors canceled the project just five cars into it and were planning on destroying the cars. Luckily someone had the foresight to take the prototypes and hide them away before they were destroyed. Now, Superformance (with the blessings of GM) got a hold of the original plans and some of the chassis molds, and built their own Grand Sport. Fyi – Superformance is a company in Southern California that distributes race car replicas and continuation models from the 1960’s. Now you can order your own Grand Sport with all sorts of luxury options. How cool is that?
