All New 2020 C8 Corvette Up For Auction

Last Updated on

The hype around the 2020 C8 Corvette Stingray is real around here and it is what everybody is talking about in the automotive industry today. The fact that Chevrolet has decided, in an extremely bold move I might add, to move over from the front-engine rear-wheel-drive layout to a mid-engine rear-wheel drive layout, is quite a statement for its competitors. The C8 marks the beginning of an era of Chevrolet moving out of its comfort zone and putting on the big boy pants to butt heads with the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini, and McLaren among the most notable, making the C8 Corvette Stingray a monumental model in the Corvette Stingray product cycle.

So with all this hype surrounding a product that is being craved by the market and has been constantly delayed by external factors such as a lengthy United Auto Works strike, it is quite a relief to note that the serial production of the C8 Corvette Stingray is finally underway. To top it all off, a C8 2LT Coupe just sprang up in the market and is now up for a bidder to take home. Yes, it isn’t necessarily a vehicle that has been built and is off the production line but could most definitely be one of the first C8 Corvette Stingrays to be delivered in the nation and that comes with some serious bragging rights.

The Corvette that is up for auction with no reserve is finished off in a pretty sedate Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic paint job that comes shod with a Jet Black Mulan Leather interior which is one of the tamest configurations you can have on the C8. The Carbon Flash 19-Inch Aluminium wheels alongside the Carbon Flash Side Vents and Accents evident from the listing photographs that have been lifted straight out of the online configurator do add a dash of flamboyance to an otherwise subtle exterior(If you could ever call the C8’s exterior subtle.) The particular example also comes equipped with the optional performance exhaust making the overall spec of the car, quite a treat, while the total pricing of the presented configuration comes in at $68,390 which can instantly become $69,485 if one adds the $1,095 Destination Freight charge.

The very first C8 Corvette Stingray that was auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale event, fetched in a rather astonishing $3 million which was bought by race team and dealership network owner Rick Hendrick with all the proceeds going to the Detroit Children’s Fund. To put it into perspective, the prices for a 2020 C8 Corvette Stingray start at $59,995, and although the proceeds went to an extremely good cause, it can still be deduced that Mr. Hendrick paid all the extra premium for essentially-Bragging Rights. So looking at what this particular example of the C8 Corvette fetched, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Matrix Gray C8 Corvette 2LT went for some absolutely absurd digits.

Will a consumer be willing to buy a vehicle configured by someone else while simultaneously paying a hefty premium just to be able to have one of the first C8’s off the factory floor is a question that is yet to be answered. Is it one that is going to take long before it gets answered? Certainly Not.
