Black is certainly at its best in the Best in Black Collection, with each of America’s Sports Cars within wearing the obsidian shade on their varying body styles and each one looking as right as rain. But what really makes these Corvettes special is not merely their shared outer shade. Among this group are some of the most desirably optioned, rarest and/or most awarded and well known examples of their given breeds. From two L88s—one with just 2,000 miles and one a special-ordered convertible—to the only known Tuxedo Black 1965 Big Tank Fuelie and the last first-generation Corvette produced, this is a lineup that would be truly impossible to recreate with its countless one-of-a-kind boasts.
