OLS Saturday Morning Car Show: The 1956 Corvette SR-2 Sebring Racer!

Now this is truly an incredible car:
The above photo is of one of only 3 versions of the 1956 Corvette SR-2 Sebring, a car designed explicitly to take on Ferrar, Porsche, and Jaguar in 1950's racing events.  And, you can own the car, if you have the dollars: according to this great article from American Luxury, it'll likely set you back $6.9 million!  The edition pictured above was #1, thus accounting for the incredible price tag.  I love the understated comment in the article: "There were only three built, and this is car #1. In other words, the historical significance of this vehicle is considerable." Considerable? Umm, yeah! To learn more, make sure to check out the link.  In the meantime, here are a couple more great photos:
