There were only 10 of the L98 based TT Speedsters ever made and they sold for $150K+. In fact the tenth car was only finished in the last couple of years. It was a wedding gift from Reeves Callaway to his new wife.
I don't have one but do think I have the next best thing... a TT Aerobody Roadster. It may even be better since I have a soft top that can be put up in case of rain. And the price was far more reasonable!
Over the weekend, I spoke w/ a fella who owns one of them . Also , I have a book that indicates who (in 98) owned each Speedster including the 2 SuperSpeedsters...
Very nice cars indeed but only one of the 12 has a "roof"...
I have had the pleasure of sitting in 2. A yellow one which was at Corvette Mike when I bought my 91 TT Aerobody Roadster and which is pictured on my website at http://www.corvetteforum.net/c4/luigi as well as a silver one (maybe the one in the picture that was posted). I took pictures of it as well and can post them if anyone is interested. The nicest thing about the silver one is that the spare tire had been removed and the rearend and alluminum structure polished.
I love the speedsters but they are not practical (in Miami) because of the rains. I still would love to own one.
BTW, There is a supposed collector in Bay Harbor that owns a vette from every year made plus a Callaway TT and a Speedster. I'd love to see that collection (he could start the southern branch of the National Corvette Museum).
I am waiting for my next project car to be done in that Pearl Yellow. I think it is the sexiest color if have seen in person and believe me if you think it looks good in pictures it is a hundred times better in person.
A pearl candy capple red would be great too..
Now all I need is the time and a car to get going
PS Yes, Speedsters are impractical versions or Aerobody Roadsters
PSS The price differential is way too much considering that the Roadster in convertible form looks so close to the speedster and performancewise I have the same specs... just different exhaust
