Here's your chance to own a piece of Corvette history.
This year marks the start of a new era for the Corvette as deliveries for the new mid-engined 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will start next month following a delay. Production of the C7 Corvette officially ended last year, marking 66 years of front-engined Corvettes since the original was introduced in 1953.
The last ever C7 Corvette Z06 sold at auction for a staggering $2.7 million, while the final C7 Stingray was delivered to the Corvette Museum. Meanwhile, the first production mid-engined C8 Corvette sold for an incredible $3 million.
If you still want to own a piece of Corvette history, then you're in luck because the last-ever C7 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport that rolled off the production line is being sold at an upcoming raffle hosted by the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Only 1,500 tickets are available, each costing $150. That's extremely cheap for a 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Convertible, which would have originally set you back $70,400 - especially one as historically significant as this.
Specifically, the car being sold at the raffle is a 2019 Corvette Grand Sport Convertible finished in Blade Silver and the last seventh generation Grand Sport Convertible ever built. The car was built on August 30, 2019. just before the start of the GM Bowling Green Assembly strike that lasted over 40 days.
Under the hood is a 460-hp, 6.2-liter V8 engine paired with an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission. Other options include a power-folding black convertible top with remote control, magnetic selective ride control, a multi-mode performance exhaust, and black aluminum wheels with red-painted calipers. Inside, the final C7 Corvette Grand Sport features an Adrenaline Red leather interior, heated and ventilated seats, and a Bose 10-speaker audio system.
The car also includes a Carbon Flash painted ground effects package, Carbon Flash badge package, Carbon Flash hood stinger stripe, and Carbon Flash side mirrors. The raffle will take place on February 20, and the winner will be invited to collect the C7 Corvette Grand Sport from the National Corvette Museum itself. They will also receive a guided tour of the museum. Tickets are currently on sale at the NCM website.
