The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray is one of the most exciting cars of this year from the American manufacturer. The Chevrolet Corvette has become a legend in the American automotive industry, and rather than just having a fan base, it has garnered a cult following. This is mostly because of the muscle car’s performance with quick acceleration and high straight-line speeds. These are also complemented by sportier design on the exterior and the interior with many features as standard. The Chevrolet Corvette handles quite well for a muscle car, unlike its rivals. The reputation created by the Chevrolet Corvette now falls on the hands of the 2020 C8 Stingray to continue the run, and the deliveries of the 2020 C8 Stingray are already underway. The first examples of the highly anticipated new mid-engined 2020 C8 Stingray have recently arrived at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The video of the new 2020 C8 Stingray’s getting delivered has been captured, and the extended video was uploaded last week and is now available on social media. The extended video is around one hour long and features a fleet of new 2020 C8 Stingrays models getting unloaded from the delivery truck and been rolled into the museum. These new cars are produced at General Motors Bowling Green Assembly facility, which is located down the road from the museum where the models were delivered. The new C8’s are all wrapped in white, but the museum employees peeled away some to access the driver’s door. The new 2020 C8 Stingray will again be made available with the Museum Delivery option, which gives the buyers a guided tour of the National Corvette Museum, a new-owner orientation session, and a special presentation of the new 2020 model.

The production of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingrays was initially scheduled to start in December 2019. But due to last year’s United Auto Workers strike, the creation of the 2020 C8 Stingray got delayed, and the actual production of the cars started in February 2020. The very first example of the 2020 C8 Stingray was sold to American Racing Driver and Motorsports mogul Rick Hendrick at the recently concluded 49th Annual Barrett – Jackson Scottsdale Auction held at Scottsdale, Arizona. The winning bid for the 2020 C8 Stingray from Rick Hendrick was a whopping $3 million, and all this money will go to Detroit Children’s Fund.

The 2020 C8 Stingray is the first Corvette with a brand new mid-engine platform to power the muscle car. The power unit is a naturally aspirated 6.2 – liter LT2 V8 engine which has been tuned to produce 495 hp and has 470 pound-feet of torque on offer, thanks to the addition of the optional performance exhaust. Along with an electronic LSD, upgraded suspension, and sticky Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, the 2020 C8 Stingray crosses the 0-60 mph mark at just 2.9 seconds. The pricing of the 2020 C8 Stingray is expected to start at just under $60,000.
