The 2020 Corvette could be a collector’s item one day in the not-too-distant future. Not only is it the first model year of the first-ever production mid-engine Corvette, it will also be one of, if not the rarest model year for the eighth-generation Corvette, with production significantly hampered by the UAW strike and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Car collectors with some extra cash to throw around may be wise to buy a 2020 Corvette, throw a cover on it and forget about it for some years. The only problem is that GM is no longer accepting orders for the 2020 model year car and many have already been spoken for – but Mecum Auctions could have a solution.
Mecum will auction off a 2020 Corvette Stingray at its upcoming Kissimmee Summer Special auction. The vehicle in question was ordered in Blade Silver with an Adrenaline Red interior, GT1 Bucket Seats and Bright Red brake calipers. This car also features the optional Performance Exhaust kit and the Z51 front splitter, but oddly, it is not equipped with the Z51 performance package.
The original owner of this vehicle drove it for a total of 1,191 miles before deciding to part ways with it. We’re not too sure why they decided to let go of their new mid-engine sports car so quickly, but it’s likely they were looking to make a profit. A 2020 Corvette in this specification would not have cost much more than $70,000 from the dealership, but Barrett-Jackson estimates someone will buy it up for $90,000-$100,000. Not a bad payday for driving a new mid-engine sports car around for 1,000 miles, huh?
