While at the National Corvette Museum’s 25th Anniversary Celebration, we came across this unique 2020 Corvette Stingray painted in Long Beach Red.
The Corvette was being piloted for the weekend by Corvette Exterior Design Manager Kirk Bennion. This car was formerly wrapped in camo and you could still see some adhesive residue on the inside of the panel gaps. As Kirk was talking some time to show off some of the features of the new Stingray to several Corvette enthusiasts, we jumped into to grab some photos.
So what makes this car unique? As most of the show cars are built with the 3LT interiors and loaded with options, this Long Beach Red Corvette Stingray coupe is the base non-Z51 version with the 1LT trim package that was optioned with a transparent top! The coupe is also wearing the base body-color vents on the front and rear of the car.
While our friend Charley was checking out the cockpit’s digital dash, we managed to capture a few photos of the high-definition display. Also, we know you were dying to see the interior glove compartment (said no one ever) so we’re happy to be the first to share it!
Seriously though, for the buyer stretching their dollars to get into the new Corvette Stingray, you won’t be disappointed as the base model still has a ton of content available. Plus, we’ve heard from more than one enthusiast that they love the rear end without the Z51 spoiler on the rear. So you have that going for you, which is nice!
