Even though the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 is grabbing the lion’s share of attention these days, shrewd buyers should also consider the previous front-engine C7 generation. Some dealers still have brand-new examples of this amazing sports car left on the lot, and have tagged them with serious discounts, as evidenced by this 2017 Stingray Coupe Z51 3LT for sale in Utah.
This Chevrolet Corvette grabs our attention thanks to its Arctic White finish and black accents, with the hood, roof, and complementary black bits offsetting the bright white body panels. There’s also a chrome badge package and shiny 19-inch wheels, all of which makes for a rather head-turning aesthetic.
Inside, this Chevrolet Corvette is covered in Jet Black leather, with infotainment offerings including a Head-Up Display, 10-speaker Bose stereo, and eight-inch diagonal touchscreen. Heated and ventilated seats keep it comfy, while the three-spoke, leather-wrapped, flat-bottom steering wheel provides the right touch point.
Under the hood, this Chevrolet Corvette is packing 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque thanks to the naturally aspirated 6.2L LT1 V8. With the optional Z51 package equipped, the performance exhaust out back makes the good noises, while Magnetic Selective Ride Control and Performance Traction Management keeps it all shiny side up. Routing the muscle rearwards is an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifting.
Now, this new 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe Z51 3LT is offered by High Country Auto Center in Richfield, Utah, for $59,933. That’s a whopping $23,452 off the original MSRP of $83,385. What’s more, this brand-new C7 may be one of the last front-engine Vettes offered as new from the dealer, making it all the more enticing.
