The example of the 2003 Corvette we have here is one of those machines that is set to really make a splash. It’s up for sale, of course, while waiting to be passed under Mecum’s hammer at the Kissimmee auction which opens in Florida the first week of next year.
The full name of the craft is the 2003 Chevrolet Corvette AAT Commemorative Edition and it is based on the 50th Anniversary Special Edition released by Chevrolet itself in 2003.
This particular car was assembled by a store based in Rochester Hills, Mich. Called a much closer to our day AAT in 2016. It is one of only two concepts to be made by the garage, and it will sell without reserve, opening the doors to all kinds of surprises.

Of the 45 cars, eight are Corvettes, including the one we have here, but also a 2014 Z41 Forgiato, a 2017 Grand Sport Heritage Edition, or a 2009 ZR1.
