Find out how customers are configuring their 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
Early adopters don't have much longer to wait to get behind the wheel of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. After a short production delay, deliveries for the highly anticipated sports car are expected to start in February. Pricing for the C8 Corvette starts at $58,900, but it can quickly get expensive when you start ticking boxes on the options list.
Soon after the new Corvette broke cover, Chevrolet made the online configurator live, allowing buyers to browse the extensive array of options and build their dream Corvette. But how are customers configuring their new Corvette? In a new video, Corvette salesperson Rick Conti has revealed the most popular customer options for the C8 Corvette.
To give us an idea of what people are ordering, Conti selected seven orders at random out of over 200 the dealer has received so far. "By seeing [these orders] sometimes it could spark an idea for you because I know people are still in that discovery stage and they don't quite know exactly what they want to order," he said.
One customer specced their Corvette 3LT in a stylish Rapid Blue finish, which happens to be Conti's favorite color option, while the interior has black seats and blue seatbelts. It also has a high-rise wing, which is proving to be a very popular option. In total, this customer's C8 Corvette came to $97,715.
Most customers ordered a standard red or black interior with GT2 seats. One customer who intends to use their Corvette for track driving selected Competition sport seats. Only one order was for a 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible. Exterior color options, on the other hand, vary, meaning that not every C8 Corvette you see on the road will be finished in Torch Red and Tuxedo Black. One customer even ordered a Corvette in an eye-catching Accelerate Yellow color with Adrenaline Red seats, which will be delivered to the National Corvette Museum.
Unsurprisingly, most C8 Corvettes on order cost more than the $58,900 MSRP. Out of the list, only two Corvettes were ordered for less than $70,000, with the cheapest selling for $63,385. This high rise wing Corvette is "a beautiful Rapid Blue 1LT with the Sky Cool grey seats, a dual stripe in Sterling Silver, battery protection package, Tension Blue seat belts, GT1 seats and silver open spoke wheels," according to Conti.
