Chevrolet Corvette C1

Sweeter than an Ferrari

When one views a Ferrari it is hard not to see the brand, to not know it is a Pininfarina design, to forget is seven figure value — yet is there any 1950s Ferrari as beguilingly faultless as a 1956 Corvette with its hard-top in place?

Calmly confidently distinct of theme, and immaculately executed from its toothed grille to its exhaust piped rear bumper.

A sports car without sports car heritage but from THE centre of gravity of car design at its peak.

Like nothing before and like nothing since.
