Welcome back to Dealer Find, an ongoing GM Authority series where we scour the listings for hidden gems left on the dealer lot. Our latest Dealer Find is a brand-new 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe Z51 3LT, a true performance superstar offering impressive speed and power, but for not much outlay.
With the Chevrolet Corvette C8 now grabbing the lion’s share of headlines, buyers looking to scoop up a deal on a new sports car would do well to remember the C7. After all, the C8 has yet to even hit production, but brand-new examples of the previous generation, like this one here, are going for substantially reduced prices.
What’s more, considering the Chevrolet Corvette C7 may be the last Vette with a front-mounted engine, it could become quite a collector’s item down the road.
Not that you’d want to keep this thing stored away as a future investment, though. No, this Vette was made to be driven, and comes equipped with the Z51 Performance Package and 3LT trim level. That means it is equipped with a long list of goodies, including a dry sump oil system, electronic limited-slip differential, big front brakes, a unique aero package, Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP summer-only tires, upgraded suspension, and a dual-mode exhaust.
Under its long, shark-like hood, this Chevrolet Corvette is powered by the naturally aspirated 6.2L LT1 V8 engine, which produces 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. Output is sent rearwards thanks to the GM 8L90 eight-speed automatic transmission.
The whole thing is covered in black paint, with the cabin matching in Jet Black.
MSRP for this two-door fun-maker is set at $76,965. However, you can find it at listed at Bomnin Chevrolet Dadeland in Glenvar Heights, Florida, for just $56,965 – a full $20,000 off MSRP.
