A 1963 concept from legendary car designer Tom Tjaarda called the Rondine. Supposedly this was derived from the Chevrolet Corvette, but I don’t know for sure if it was derived from the C1 or C2. I suspect the former. That is literally one of the five or six most beautiful car designs I’ve ever seen. Does anyone know anything about this car? (Sorry, but I don’t know the source of this photo.) How much do you think it would cost to have something built from scratch that resembles the Rondine? Maybe the equivalent of the GDP of a small country…
He who hesitates is lost…my search for a 2016 Z06 automatic led me to find one at a dealer very close to where I live. I wasn’t crazy about the interior color (Kalahari), but the exterior was Long Beach Red, it had chrome wheels—not black, it was 2LZ trim, it had only 11,000+ miles and the dealer wasn’t asking an outrageous sum. Of course when I checked my CarGurus search this morning I discovered that the car has been sold.

The Rondine! Beautiful car…as for the Vette, must have not been meant to be. You will get one soon, I am sure 😜
Thanks, Carlos. The Rondine is just gorgeous.
Sorry you missed your chance on that nice ‘Vette. I’ve never heard of the Rondine… but it sure is a beautiful car.
Thanks, sir. I have little doubt I will find a ‘16 Z06 automatic that is more than good enough.
The Rondine can almost be described as achingly beautiful.
