The 2020 Corvette Stingray is undeniably one of the best new performance car bargains, but if you get a bit heavy-handed with the options list, you can easily turn this five-figure steal into a major six-figure expense.
While we realize that very few buyers of the 2020 Corvette Stingray will tick every singly options box when ordering the sports car, we were curious just how expensive this would make the vehicle – so we loaded up Chevy’s online build tool and got to work.
The result? A 2020 Corvette Stingray that costs a whopping $105,390. Our example vehicle pictured here has every possible option and accessory selected, including the most expensive paint option (Sebring Orange Tintcoat and Long Beach Red Metallic Tintcoat are $995 options), the 3LT package, the Z51 Performance Package with Magnetic Ride Control, Full Dual Full Length Racing Stripes with Fender Hash Marks, Carbon Fiber Dual Roof Package, Visible Carbon Fiber Ground Effects Package, High Wing Spoiler, Competition Sport Bucket Seats, Carbon Fiber Interior Trim, Engine Appearance Package and two-piece premium leather travel bags, to name some of the more expensive bits and bobs.
Some of the options, such as the High Wing Spoiler, don’t show on the screenshots in this article. This is likely because they are Chevrolet Genuine Accessories, which are installed by the dealership after the car has arrived from Bowling Green Assembly. As an interesting aside, the High Wing Spoiler nets the buyers two wings – both the standard low spoiler, which arrives on the vehicle upon delivery, and the larger spoiler. The dealer will give the buyer the standard spoiler to take home with them after the High Wing Spoiler has been installed. To make some of their money back, they could theoretically sell the low spoiler to a fellow 2020 Corvette Stingray owner who ordered a base model via eBay, Craigslist or the like.
While $105,390 is certainly expensive for a Corvette, Chevy’s options are reasonably priced compared to arch rival Porsche. The German manufacturer has infamously expensive parts on its options list, making it very easy to pay well into the $100,000 range for a handsomely equipped 911 Carrera S, for example.
