Due to various factors beyond GM’s control, especially the United Auto Workers strike, resulting in the production of the newest Corvette getting delayed regularly but has now finally fallen on a track leading in the Vette finally coming to market. The C8 Corvette Stingray is soon going to be available in U.S. Dealerships and consequently in many garages throughout the nation but what about others around the globe?-Well as of right now the only place we can guarantee the arrival of the C8 Corvette Stingray apart from the United States is our Latin brother, Mexico.

In a press event in Sin City-Las Vegas, Nevada, General Motors has recently confirmed their plans of launching the brand spanking new C8 Corvette Stingray in Mexico. They have made it public that the brand plans on bringing the dream of Zora Arkus-Duntov in Mexican dealerships as soon as the second quarter of the year shortly after the Vette’s arrival in the U.S. The first variant that is slated to be made available in Mexico is the same as the U.S. in the form of the Stingray Coupe which shall be available with either the Z51 or the Z51 Performance Package. The remaining variants, the convertible being the most notable, are also Mexico bound, but any other details regarding the same have yet to be furnished.

The C8 Corvette Stingray is going to be manufactured at the General Motors Bowling Green, Kentucky plant, and would be available for sale in only a handful of specialized Chevrolet Performance dealerships- 10 to be precise. The selected ten dealerships are listed as follows:

  • Mexico City
  • Monterrey
  • Guadalajara
  • Querétaro
  • Cancun
  • San Luis Potosí
  • Puebla
  • Culiacán

The Corvette is going to be substantially more expensive in Mexico with the C8 Corvette Stingray Z51 starting at MXN 1,999,000, which roughly translates to about USD 104,450, which is more than 1.5 times the MSRP of the Vette in the States. The C8 Corvette Stingray Z51 Performance Package isn’t going to be any cheaper as it comes in with an even higher price tag of MXN 2,200,000, which converts to about USD 114,950 resulting in the C8 Corvette no longer being viewed in the same segment as the United States. The fact that the Corvette would no longer be value for money as it is in the States could undoubtedly be a huge factor in determining the sales numbers in the Latin country. But in reality, it shouldn’t be a deterrent for many buyers as there has always been quite a gap between car prices in both the states due to different tax slabs and government policies.
