Deliveries of the hotly anticipated 2020 Chevrolet Corvette are now underway. Some of the very first examples of the new mid-engine Corvette recently arrived on the doorstep of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, as captured in the following extended video posted to social media last week.
The video is rather long, clocking in at over an hour in length, and documents a fleet of new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette models unloading from a delivery truck and rolling into the museum. The fresh Vettes are still covered in their white wrappers, which the museum employees peel away to gain access to the driver’s door. The host also provides some details on some of the services that the museum provides.
To note, new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette buyers will once again have access to the Museum Delivery option, which includes a guided tour of the museum, a new-owner orientation session, and a special presentation of their new vehicle. All new Corvettes are produced at the GM Bowling Green Assembly facility, located just down the road from the museum.
For those Corvette fans itching to see a slew of new C8s rolling off the delivery truck and into the National Corvette Museum, this video brings the goods.
As we covered previously, full serial production of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 kicked off in earnest back in February following delays incurred during last year’s United Auto Workers strike. Production was originally scheduled to commence in December of 2019.
The very first example of the new Corvette was sold to Rick Hendrick, who secured ownership with a winning $3 million bid at the recent Barrett-Jackson auction event in Scottsdale, Arizona.
As a reminder, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette ushers in a brand-new mid-engine platform for the nameplate. Motivation is sourced from the naturally aspirated 6.2L LT2 V8 engine, which is tuned to produce upwards of 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque when equipped with the optional performance exhaust. Pricing starts at just under $60,000.
