For a lot of folks, purchasing a new Chevy Corvette is a really big deal, often signifying a moment of accomplishment and success, while inducting the new buyer into the extended family that is Corvette ownership. As such, many buyers opt for the Corvette Museum Delivery option, also known as option R8C, which provides the new owner with the unique experience of taking delivery of their new ride fresh off the assembly line in Kentucky. Now, however, the Corvette Museum Delivery option just got substantially more expensive with the introduction of the 2024 Corvette.
Previously, the Corvette Museum Delivery option (RPO code R8C) was priced at $995 when ticked for the 2023 Corvette. Now, however, the option is $500 more expensive, priced at $1,495 when chosen for the 2024 Corvette.
For those readers who may be unaware, the Corvette Museum Delivery option is offered in collaboration with the National Corvette Museum (NCM), located just down the street from the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky, the exclusive producer of the Chevy Corvette since 1981. The option includes a special VIP guided tour of the NCM for the new owner and up to three additional guests, where they will see the freshly produced Corvette on display. Customers are then provided an orientation and delivery presentation, while a unique gold decal is placed on the inside of the driver’s door jamb.
Customers also receive a personalized interior dash plaque, a personalized wall plaque, and an individual photograph in front of the museum. There’s also an opportunity to tour the Bowling Green assembly plant, if desired.
The 2024 Corvette arrives as the fifth model year for the eighth-gen C8, introducing a few important updates and changes, the most notable of which is the debut of the hybrid, all-wheel-drive 2024 Corvette E-Ray. Pricing for the 2024 Corvette has also increased compared to equivalent 2023 model-year vehicles, with the destination freight charge now up to $1,595, a $200 increase compared to a DFC of $1,395 included prior.
