The “Yenko” name carries a lot of weight with it, but is it enough to call for half-a-million dollars? One dealership thinks so.
Jalopnik located and spoke to personnel at the dealership selling this 2017 Yenko C7 Corvette Grand Sport, and apparently, staff thought the price was a typo. Better yet, the dealer was originally going to list it for $750,000. To remind everyone, the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport started at $66,000, and according to the report, the Yenko modifications total an extra $51,185. That’s still a far cry away from this enormous markup.
There may be more of an explanation for the sky-high price. The car is a consignment, which means the owner and dealership will work together to sell it. It also means the owner has a lot of say in what the car’s asking price sits at.
Even though this is the first of just 50 Yenko Corvette Grand Sport models, we think half-a-million dollars is something above and beyond it. But, if you have $500,000 to blow, there’s an 800-horsepower Corvette awaiting.
