Sylvester Stallone Made This Corvette Badass And Now It Can Be Yours

It packs a punch as powerful as Rocky's.

After buying this 1968 Corvette in auction back in 2009, Sylvester Stallone gave the convertible some serious modifications John Rambo himself would be proud of. Under the hood, the Vette features a 8.3-liter Donovan Big Block rated at 660 hp, which is sent to to a five-link coilover rear suspension via a five-speed manual. The entire fiberglass body was also boxed with thicker steel to give it some much needed rigidity, given the way we assume Sly drove the car.

The cabin was also upgraded with full leather upholstery, Corbeau seats, vintage air conditioning, and a Flaming River tilt steering wheel. Other mods include anti-lock brakes, fuel injection, power steering, a custom roll bar and a set of Boyd Coddington wheels. Stallone's red Corvette has previously changed hands, but for $129,900, Taggart Autosport in North Carolina will throw in the Hollywood legend's autographed registration and photo of him behind the wheel.
