You still have time to buy your ticket for a very special one-of-a-kind 2019 Grand Sport that’s being raffled off by the National Corvette Museum during this week’s National Corvette Caravan.
But you better hurry if you want a chance to take home this Corvette that will truly be like no other on the road.
With the help of key Corvette leaders, the Museum has come up with a 2019 Shadow Gray Grand Sport Coupe featuring Sterling Silver stripes and hash marks that aren’t a factory option color. Plus, the Grand Sport vent badges are monochromatic, and the sill plates feature a unique silver print.
“We have been working with GM on a few one-off features for this car for the past several months,” said Katie Ellison, director of marketing and communications.
“With it being our 25th Anniversary, we wanted to incorporate a few special ‘silver’ features on the car that are truly unique. Exterior Design Manager Kirk Bennion and Senior Designer Dennis Finos really went above and beyond to create a classy look that celebrates the Museum’s milestone. We are excited for everyone to see the finished product and are appreciative for GM’s willingness to add the special touches!”
Only 150 tickets for the car will be sold for $150 each, and the drawing will be shown live on the Museum’s Facebook page at 2 p.m. CT on Thursday, Aug. 29. You can get more information and raffle ticket order forms online at raffle.corvettemuseum.org. Officials say it would be wise to buy tickets well in advance due to ticket order form transit and processing times.
“The only other car to have the solid silver lettering is one of the experimental Grand Sports General Motors built that was the marketing car when the model was announced,” Ellison says. “It’s what you’ll see in any of the press photos, but has since been housed at the Museum for visitors to ‘try on for size’ and sit in.”
In sum, these unique parts “truly make this a one-of-a-kind Corvette,” Finos says.
Features also include an 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, Magnetic Selective Ride Control, multi-mode performance exhaust, Grand Sport chrome aluminum wheels with black painted calipers, 2LT equipment group with Jet Black leather interior including head-up display, heated and ventilated seats, Bose 10-speaker audio system, universal home remote and remote vehicle starter system, Carbon-Flash painted ground effects package, Chevrolet MyLink radio with navigation system, performance data and video recorder, curb-view front cameras, chrome badge package, battery protection package, front license plate bracket and Corvette Museum Delivery.
The Museum is also raffling off two 2020 mid-engine Corvettes this week.
The first, a “Build Your Own” Stingray, is already sold out, but the second still has tickets available for VIN 25 for just $25 per ticket, with the drawing set for Saturday, Aug. 31. This Torch Red Coupe will be loaded up very nicely, including Z51 Performance Package, 3LT with GT2 Seats, Carbon Flash Badge Package, Body-Color Dual Roof Package, and more.
The NCM is celebrating its Silver Anniversary this Labor Day weekend, and more than 10,000 Corvette enthusiasts are expected to join in the fun Aug. 28-31. Many of them will make the Museum the final stop of the 6th National Corvette Caravan, giving them the opportunity to see six of the new eighth-generation Corvettes on display and talk with about 50 members of the GM team who will be leading seminars, answering questions, and networking with event participants.
