Earlier today, we covered the news that car rental agency Hertz was offloading several Hertz Hendrick Camaro SS and Camaro ZL1 models in a bid to avoid bankruptcy in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, it looks like Hertz is also offloading several of its Chevrolet Corvette Z06 rentals.
As spotted by Jalopnik, Hertz currently has several 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 coupes listed for sale. Looking over the company’s car sales website, we see at least 22 examples up for grabs, each of which is covered in Corvette Racing Yellow Tintcoat paint and sports black racing stripes running down the center. Each also has black wheels and a black leather interior, and each is equipped with an automatic transmission.
As we covered in the Hertz Hendrick Camaro post earlier today, the Hertz car rental agency reversed all of its new car orders earlier this month following a dramatic drop in business as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, it’s offloading some of its pricier rental models onto the used car market.
For any buyer looking to pick up a 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 coupe in yellow with an automatic transmission, these rides could prove to be a decent deal. Mileage falls between 12,000 and 35,000 miles, with pricing firmly in the $60,000 range. Granted, the condition of these sports cars is uncertain – they are, after all, rentals. That said, they could still prove to be decent buys when examined on a car-by-car basis.
As a reminder, the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is equipped with the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 engine, which produces 650 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 650 pound-feet of torque at 3,600 rpm. The ‘eight connects to the M5U eight-speed automatic, as is the case here, or alternatively, the MEK seven-speed manual.
If the price was right, would you consider buying a used Hertz Chevrolet Corvette Z06, or would you avoid buying a rental outright? Let us know in the comments, and make sure to subscribe to GM Authority for more Chevrolet Corvette news, Chevrolet news, and around-the-clock GM news coverage.
