Now that Chevrolet has dropped details on the 2020 Corvette coupe and convertible, all we can do is wait for the C8 to hit dealerships. But one lucky customer will walk away with the very first production 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale Auction in January. All proceeds from the sale will go to the Detroit Children’s Fund, which benefits public schools in the Detroit area.
The VIN 001 Corvette Stingray will come equipped with the Z51 Performance Package. That means its V-8 delivers an upgraded 495 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, ahead of the standard 490 hp and 465 lb-ft. All Stingrays are paired to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.
We can be sure the first C8 will fetch a crazy amount of money at auction. Bear in mind the final C7 Chevrolet Corvette sold for a whopping $2.7 million at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction earlier this year. Here, it set a Barrett-Jackson record for an automaker-donated vehicle.
If you don’t have millions of dollars lying around, the 2020 Corvette coupe that arrives early next year will be available for as little as $59,995. The 2020 Corvette convertible is priced from $67,495. Stingray buyers will even be able to pick their VIN, with certain limitations.
The Scottsdale Auction will take place January 11-19 at WestWorld of Scottsdale in Arizona.
