Yes, that’s right. A trailer hitch.
Looks like Chevy is redefining the supercar. Can your supercar pull a boat? How about a trailer full of racing equipment? Just asking…
I must have missed the option for the hitch in the official 2020 Order Guide, and while I like the rusty patina, it should be at least be painted in Carbon Flash black.
Another interesting aspect of this mule is that it is a vintage 2018 edition. To the left of the hitch, you’ll see a handwritten date of 12.07.18.
It does make sense that these cars are back in Florida testing in the middle of summer. It’s the hottest it’s been all year down here! Plus the afternoon showers give the engineers a chance to test the Weather Mode daily.
We’ve seen them testing in Florida off and on over the course of the last year or so. Why they are still wrapped is a mystery to me unless there is more here than meets the eye.
There were two cars in this group, one with a hitch and the other without. We do spy a front lip spoiler on the car without the hitch and it appears to be the same as we saw at the East Coast Reveal at Kerbeck Corvette. Other than that I discern no other major differences from what has already been revealed.
A big shout-out to our friend Eric Schellinger IV for capturing the car and allowing us to share the photos. Eric’s 1996 Corvette Grand Sport was featured in my book on Corvette Special Editions. If love Corvettes and guitars, check out his Schellinger Custom Guitars facebook page.
