The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette represents a watershed moment for the iconic Chevy sports car, introducing a brand-new mid-engine platform and fresh eighth generation. Now, the last 2020 Corvette ever produced is headed to auction.
Traditionally, the first and last examples of a particular model line are highly valued by collectors, so it bears to reason this particular 2020 Corvette will fetch a decent chunk of change.
Tagged with VIN #19456, the final 2020 Corvette produced rolled off the line December 14th, 2020, and has just six delivery miles on the clock. It even includes the factory protective plastic covers.
This particular model is a Convertible, and is equipped in the top 3LT trim level. The exterior body panels are coated in Sebring Orange Tintcoat paint, while the interior is bathed in Natural Dipped leather upholstery. The highly bolstered seats feature both heating and ventilation. In the corners, the last 2020 Corvette rides on 19- and 20-inch Carbon Flash wheels, while Carbon Flash Metallic covers the sideview mirror caps.
It’s an impressive bit of kit, but the star of the show can be found behind the cabin. Providing motivation is the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 engine.
As GM Authority covered previously, the final 2020 Corvette produced was ordered by Van Bortel Chevrolet in upstate New York, a break from tradition given the last and first Corvettes in a given model year are usually auctioned for charity, or put on display by GM.
Now, the last 2020 Corvette is up for grabs as lot S142.1 at the Mecum Auctions Kissimmee 2021 event in Florida.
To note, the first-ever production 2020 Corvette, VIN #0001, was purchased last year by Rick Hendrick, who acquired the vehicle for $3 million, with proceeds going to charity. It’s uncertain if VIN #19456 will reach equally lofty heights with regard to bidding.
