Duntov’s next step towards the mid-engined Corvette, was to build a LeMans type racer to compete in endurance races open to experimental cars. The original plan called for the production of six units of this vehicle, which unsurprisingly was named CERV-II. The first unit was finished in early 1964, just as the Corvair debacle began to unfold. GM pulled the plug on all racing activities while unconventional engine placements within the company got a huge black eye. The only CERV-II ever built was used as a demonstration and test vehicle. Both the CERV-I and CERV-II went to private ownership. In 2013 the CERV-II was auctioned by RM Sotheby’s for $1,100,000. Not bad for a car that never was.
