The car featured a wide body kit that produced better downforce, it had fixed front lights, a ducktail spoiler incorporated in the trunk, multi-spoke rims and a red leather interior. It has been the center of attention in many Corvette events and surely remains “cool” even today. At the 2015 Scottsdale Auction, one of the two Corvette GTO sold for $34,100 and became part of the Lingenfelter Collection.
