Lot #1304 - 1963 Chevrolet Corvette "Rondine" Concept Coupe

Built for the 1963 Paris Auto Show by Pininfarina, this one and only “Rondine” edition Corvette has been stored at the Pininfarina Museum since new. It is being offered to buyers for the first - and most likely last - time ever. The vehicle features a 327cid/360hp V8 with a 4-speed and power brakes, as well as a teal exterior with white interior.

Lot #1307 – The Robosaurus

Known as the “World’s Largest Robot,” Robosaurus, the fire-breathing, car-crushing dinosaur, has thrilled crowds across the globe. Created by Monster Robots, Inc. of Southern California, Robosaurus stands 40-feet tall, weighs 31 tons and can shoot 20-foot flames from its nostrils. Its stainless steel mouth can rip and twist metal with 20,000 pounds of crushing force. It’s estimated that if the Robosaurus were reconstructed today, it would cost over $5 million to build.

Lot #1310 - 2007 Blastolene B-702 Custom Roadster

The B-702 is the latest creation from the Blastolene Brothers, Michael Leeds and Randy Grubb, and was inspired by the great French cars of the 1930s. A 702cid V12 engine powers the hand-formed aluminum body, which features a glass grille and hand-blown glass taillights. Painted Midnight Blue, the vehicle could best be described as a 20-foot long, 8-foot wide rolling sculpture. This is the first Blastolene creation to be offered to the public.
