Connell Chevrolet in Southern California got the Elkhart Lake Blue 2020 Corvette Stingray for their C8 Dealer Tour Stop and from all accounts, it was a success as we heard the dealership took deposits on 70 C8 Corvettes at MSRP in 31 minutes! Connell Chevrolet tells us that all 90 of their C8 Corvette allocations have now all been spoken for.
We learn more about the features on this car every day, and it’s educational when we come across a video which captures these options in action.
As the blue 2020 Corvette is being moved from the inside showroom to being parked outside, it has to navigate a narrow doorway as it exits the building. You will see the side mirrors are turned inward until the driver clears the outdoor railing. With a push of a button on the door, the mirrors fold outward. (See it at 0:39 seconds into the video.)
As the car moves in front of the dealership, but before he backs into the parking spot, we see the Front End Lift System demonstrated again (beginning at 1:12). You can see it’s engaged as there are at least a couple inches of space between the top of the tire and the wheel well. After maneuvering into place, the driver announces that he’s lowering the car and we all watch it go back down.
After a few engine revs, the C8 Corvette is shut down.
FYI, for those of you configuring a Stingray, the power folding mirrors are available on LT2 and LT3 trims. As far as the Front End Lift System, we believe it to be available across all trims. We’ll learn the price of the system on August 15th.
