Paul Stanley, the frontman of the popular music band, Kiss, recently made the headlines following the announcement that he is putting up a 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible for sale. According to the KISS lead singer, the car, which he specially ordered, “is too good for him,” claiming he did not know he was getting a historic vehicle. In a related development, Mike Leffingwell, a popular Nashville music and event promoter, is set to join others to place a bid on the vehicle.
According to Mike Leffingwell, “the corvettes is selling way overpriced but are hard to get.” The entertainment entrepreneur also revealed that he had one on order but he is not sure of the build date. Consequently, he has decided to throw his hat in the ring to bid on Paul Stanley’s. The move is not particularly surprising, considering that Mike Leffingwell, otherwise known as Mike Axle, is a big fan of the Kiss lead singer and the entire band.
The Chevrolet Corvette was specially made for Paul Stanley, with factory-customized features, including Custom Metallic Red Tint Coat with Saddle interior, attributes that make it worth the price. Powered by a 6.2-liter V8 paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission and equipped with the Stingray’s high wing option, an aggressive front splitter, and side skirts, Edge Yellow brake calipers, the car is a speed machine that will undoubtedly be a prized asset for whoever eventually wins the bid. The car is particularly historic as Paul Stanley ensured he was getting the first 2022 Stingray Convertible off the line with VIN 001. Paul Stanley’s 2022 Chevrolet Corvette will cross the block at the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction scheduled to run from June 30 to July 2. The winner of the bid also gets an Ibanez PS120 Paul Stanley Signature guitar.
Mike Leffingwell does have an inside door with Kiss and owns a lot of Kiss merchandise, showing his love not just for the music but their marketing ingenuity.
