All it will cost you is $200.
The Chevrolet Corvette is America's favorite home-brewed sports car and when you look at the sales figures you'll understand why. This car, which competes with the likes of the Toyota Supra, has sold close to 1.75 million units, and the first car to break that milestone will be given away via a raffle competition at the National Corvette Museum. This remarkable car will roll off of the assembly line in Bowling Green sometime this month and the winner of the raffle will be announced on Friday, September 4 at 3 p.m. as part of the museum's very own 26th-anniversary celebration.
"We are appreciative of Chevrolet for aligning the production of one of our Corvette raffle cars so that it would become this milestone in production," says Dr. Sean Preston, President, and CEO of the National Corvette Museum. "It's exciting that in just 11 years Bowling Green Assembly has produced 250,000 Corvettes. No other sports car can claim that kind of production volume or enthusiast following."
The first 300 Corvettes ever produced came out in Polo White with a red interior, so this special C8 will be paying tribute to that look with an Arctic White paint job over an Adrenaline Red interior. Unlike the millionth car, and 1.5 millionth car which was stored in the museum (both were badly damaged in a sinkhole incident) the 2020 car will only make a brief appearance before going on to its new home.
"While you do not have to be a raffle winner to pick-up your Corvette from the Museum, we always look forward to celebrating with those who won their car from us. The Museum has been raffling Corvettes for over 20 years, welcoming new enthusiasts to the family in the process. We are appreciative of those who support our raffle program through ticket purchases as it is one of the primary fundraisers for the Museum," Preston concluded.
The car being raffled comes fully equipped and features the Z51 Performance package, 3LT equipment group, as well as the engine appearance package, front suspension lift with memory and a set of five-trident spoke machined-face sterling silver wheels.
Tickets are on sale for $200 each and are limited to only 1,500 entries. Raffle money will go towards supporting the 501c3 nonprofit foundation, and tickets can be purchased via the museum's website.
