One-of-a-kind Chevrolet L88 muscles its way to $401,500 in San Diego

On June 19, a total of 102 automobiles, including many high-horsepower Detroit muscle cars combined with a selection of AMG Mercedes-Benz and M-Powered BMWs, crossed the auction podium in San Diego.

Overall, the auction resulted in $6.9 million in sales and a 100 percent sell through rate.

Detroit Muscle entries were led by the Corvette marque's overall solid showing, including achieving the top-seller of the day with a super-rare, tire-shredding 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88. It brought $401,500.
