Although the market introduction of the all-new 2020 Corvette was delayed by the lengthy United Auto Workers strike, serial production of the mid-engine sports car is now underway, and demand is still running high. Now, a C8 2LT Coupe is up for grabs in a no-reserve auction from Premier Auction Group.
By the looks of it, this 2020 Corvette isn’t actually built yet. Rather, the listing includes pictures taken from the C8’s online configurator which don’t even align with the vehicle description. As such, we’ve included configurator images of a C8 based on the listing description.
Highlight features for this 2020 Corvette 2LT Coupe include Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic paint on a Jet Black Mulan Leather interior, Carbon Flash 19-inch Aluminum wheels, Carbon Flash Side Vents and accents, and a Performance exhaust. It’s a nice setup, but the question is whether buyers will settle for someone else’s configuration just to get their car a little earlier.
Put it all into place, and pricing for this setup hits at $68,390, or $69,485 with the $1,095 Destination Freight charge. For reference, pricing for the 2020 Corvette starts at $59,995.
With that in mind, it’ll be interesting to see what this no-reserve auction will settle at with the final rap of the hammer. No doubt, owning one of the first 2020 Corvette units to roll off the factory floor comes with some serious bragging rights. That much was evidenced when the very first 2020 Corvette was auctioned off at the recent Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale event, selling to race team owner and dealership network owner Rick Hendrick for a cool $3 million. Proceeds went to benefit the Detroit Children’s Fund.
