  1966 Corvette 427/425 Big-Block Without all the Frills Have you ever made a decision you should regret but don't?Have you ever made a decision you should regret but don't? That's a rhetorical question obviously, because whatever decision you are thinking of we probably don't want to hear it. In direct contrast though, Peter Koretz made a potentially regrettable decision that was right up our alley: he purchased a 1966 Corvette. A 427ci, 425-horsepower numbers-matching 1966 Corvette to be exact. And while your financial advisor would never condone such irresponsible behavior, we are all about it.

DeltaWing racing is selling off its very first DeltaWing Coupe for a reasonable $ 375 , 000 . Sadly, the DeltaWing Racing team lasted just four years before folding up shop in 2012. Panoz, the Georgia-based company responsible for the build of the vehicle, said that new regulations and lack of success

The seller wants $ 375 , 000 for the car, which actually seems like good value for such a rare car. The car for sale is DeltaWing Chassis #001, which first debuted in a chrome livery.

So much so that it alienated the group it was trying to impress. The DeltaWing made its debut back in 2010 as a potential new design for IndyCar starting in 2012. The odd shape and low-power engine were based around efficient aero, a unique front and rear track and an extremely low power-to-weight ratio. Despite the advanced design, it was passed over for a more traditional looking vehicle. Now, one of the very few cars ever built is going up for sale for a cool $375,000.

The car was originally designed by Ben Bowlby. Bowlby previously designed cars for Lola and Champ Cars for CART. He was backed by Chip Ganassi. After failing with IndyCar, the DeltaWing was reworked for LeMans. Thanks to Panoz, Nissan, All American Racers and Michelin, the car made its debut at the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans, but was literally knocked out by a wayward Nissan. It came back later that year for the American LeMans Series finale at Road Atlanta.

After that season, Panoz and Ganassi split from the rest of the group and continued development of the DeltaWing on its own. This split eventually led to a lawsuit against Bowlby and Nissan that ended with an undisclosed settlement. Nonetheless, the DeltaWing evolved into a closed cockpit car that has competed sporadically over the past few years. The car that's going up for sale is DeltaWing Coupe Chassis #001. It's one of two remaining coupes, as chassis #003 is part of the Panoz Museum Collection and chassis #002 was destroyed at the 2016 Daytona Rolex 24.
