The first retail production 2020 Corvette Convertible will be auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson’s upcoming Scottsdale 2021 event, with all proceeds from the sale benefitting the United Way for Southeastern Michigan.
The first 2020 Corvette Convertible to roll off the line at Bowling Green Assembly is a 3LT trim level model with a Black exterior and an Adrenaline Red Napa leather interior with black suede inserts. It was also ordered with options like red seat belts, GT2 bucket seats, visible carbon fiber front splitter, visible carbon fiber rocker extensions, Performance Data Recorder and the Z51 Performance Package.
Just like every other 2020 Corvette Convertible, this example is powered by a 6.2L LT2 V8 engine, which routes power to the rear wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. With the Z51 Performance Package equipped, the 6.2L V8 engine produces 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
Barrett-Jackson also auctioned off the first production 2020 Corvette coupe last year, which sold for $3 million to NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick. All proceeds from the sale went to the Detroit Children’s Fund, a non-profit aimed at providing less fortunate youth in the Metro Detroit region with a quality education.
Similarly, Barrett-Jackson also auctioned off another 2020 Corvette coupe for $370,000 last year, with the proceeds from that sale benefitting the HeartStrings Foundation, which provides guitars to veterans and active members of the military and their families.
Mecum Auctions attempted to auction off the last production 2020 Corvette coupe at its Kissimmee sale earlier this month as well, however the Sebring Orange model failed to reach the set minimum reserve price after attracting $140,000 in bids. It seems the demand for the last production 2020 Corvette coupe wasn’t nearly as high as it was for the first production model, which is’t very surprising.
The first production 2020 Corvette Convertible will cross the auction block at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale this March.
