Paul Newman's Corvette V8-Powered Volvo V90
Paul Newman's career in racing was nearly as prolific as his career in acting. Newman and Carl Haas joined forces in 1983 to form the Newman/Haas racing team, winning 105 CART/Champ Car races and eight championships, with two wins in the IRL/IndyCar series after the split in 1996. Despite that record, Newman would never see the Indy 500 winner's circle, despite winning nearly everywhere else. Newman was an avid fan of Volvo's boxy wagons, and someone as deeply involved in racing as himself couldn't do with just Volvo's inline-five, even with a turbocharger. The solution was an engine swap to a Corvette V8 — the second of which is pictured here. Gifted to Newman by his racing team in 2007, this nearly stock V90 houses a 6.2-liter Corvette Z06 V8 and GM four-speed automatic transmission. Making over 400 horsepower, this wagon might be the ultimate sleeper. The car goes to auction along with an extensive collection of racing memorabilia from Newman's decades-long career.
