Do you have $2 million lying around, just waiting for the right product to buy? Look no further than the historical Chervolet CERV I (Chevy Engineering Research Vehicle), the only car of its kind that paved the way for the modern Corvette. Now, the CERV I is heading to auction.

The Chevrolet CERV I’s design originally began in 1959 by Zora Arkus-Duntov, a Chevy Staff engineer and designer, before being unveiled to the public in 1960. The car is expected to run potential buyers upwards of $2 million. It uses a specially-developed, lighter V8 engine that weighs just 350 pounds and pushes 350 hp. Just by looking at the car, you can tell that the design is unlike any other car you’ve ever seen. It looks like a Formula 1 car meets a Roadster. The auction will take place in Montery on August 13-15. [Purchase]
