We're only talking 1,191 miles on the odometer.
Demand for the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has been understandably high. Chevy received some 40,000 reservations since last year. Technically, 2020 Corvettes were sold out even before production began and those who missed out on this year's allotment will have to wait for the 2021 model. Fortunately, there won't be a significant price increase for next year's model and some new features, such as two new exterior colors, are expected. But still, owning a first model year for the first-ever series production mid-engine Corvette is something many collectors desire.
There have been a few individuals who have listed their cars for sale online for prices well above MSRP, in one case $160,000 on a normally fully-loaded $100,000 3LT spec. And now there's another well-equipped 2020 C8 up for sale, via Mecum Auctions at no reserve.
Bidding is underway and, as of this writing, the highest bid is a whopping $1. The auction house estimates a final price of $90,000 to $100,000. Is it worth that amount? It is for someone and all the more so because it has just 1,191 miles on its clock.
Some extra features include GTI Competition seats, performance dual-mode exhaust, carbon flash wheels, and a Z51 front splitter (which can be purchased separately from the Z51 package). Needless to say, the car is in perfect condition inside and out.
It's also important to bear in mind the original owner paid roughly $75,000, so they're still set to make a fairly decent profit here.
All C8s currently come powered by a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter LT2 V8 with a total of 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Power goes to the rear wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. Chevy claims a 0-60 mph time of 2.8 seconds for C8s equipped with the Z51 package. Top speed is 194 mph.
Mecum's Kissimmee Summer Auction officially kicks off on August 27 and ends on August 29.
