Due to a change in the regulations, Corvettes could race at Le Mans for the first time in 1960. Briggs S. Cunningham jumped at this opportunity and had three C1 generation Corvettes especially prepared with some backdoor support from General Motors. They featured beefed up running gear and a modified engine. Although only one reached the finish, it did score a class win, which was an achievement not matched by a Corvette until 1999. Not raced again by Cunningham, they all had a colourful history. The last to surface is this chassis, which had been hidden for sight for nearly four decades and more recently has been the subject of a legal dispute. With that now settled, it has been consigned, at no reserve, to this weekend's RM Sotheby's Amelia Island sale. Even though a lot of work will be required to bring the car back to its original configuration, it is a very rare piece of Corvette history and has an estimate to match at $900,000 - $1,300,000.
Another piece of American motoring history due to cross the block at Amelia Island is this mighty Duesenberg. It is one of six fitted with a Disappearing Top Torpedo by Murphy and one of four known to have survived. Recently restored by RM Restorations, it was returned to its bare aluminium guise. Some panels even have brushed surfaces as per the original design. Chassis 2199 is the auction's headliner with a $3.5 - $4 million reserve.
Ahead of the full reveal later this year, BMW have released pictures of a camouflaged test version of the next generation 2-Series Coupe. The range-topping M240i will feature a 382 hp engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
In June, Touring Superleggera will celebrate the company's 95th anniversary. To mark the occasion the new Arese RH95 will be revealed. Judging by the name and the teaser image, it is most likely based on the Alfa Romeo 4C.
