While the first and last examples for any Corvette model year are typically highly valued by collectors, it seems as though there was limited interest in the final 2020 Corvette produced. It’s not clear what the minimum reserve price for the car was, however it attracted a high bid of $140,000 before Mecum was forced to move onto the next lot in its large auction docket.
The final 2020 Corvette is a hardtop convertible model in the range-topping 3LT trim. The car is finished in Sebring Orange and features Carbon Flash painted exterior mirrors and a Natural Dipped leather interior. When the vehicle crossed the auction block at Mecum’s Kissimmee 2021 sale, it had just six miles on the odometer (all delivery miles) and still featured the factory protective interior plastic. Tagged with VIN #19456, the hardtop convertible rolled off the line at Bowling Green Assembly on December 14th, 2020.
As GM Authority reported previously, the final 2020 Corvette produced was initially ordered by Van Bortel Chevrolet in upstate New York. This is a bit of a break in tradition for GM, as the first and last Corvettes produced in a given model year are usually auctioned for charity or put on display by GM. For example, the first-ever production 2020 Corvette, VIN #0001, was purchased last year by NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick, who acquired the vehicle for $3 million. All proceeds from that sale went to the Detroit Children’s Fund, a non-profit that invests in Detroit-area schools and educational institutions.
