National Corvette Museum To Raffle the Final C7 Corvette Grand Sport


The last C7 ever produced – a black Z06 coupe – sold at auction last summer to a collector named Daniel Snyder for a cool $2.7 million.

The first customer C8 to be built, hopefully sometime this week, just went for $3 million to enthusiast/dealer Rick Hendrick.

Big bucks, for sure.

But fortunately, not everyone who wants to get in on some of that “last C7, first C8” action has to be mega-rich, thanks to a raffle currently underway at the National Corvette Museum.

Indeed, you can purchase a chance to win the last C7 Grand Sport convertible to be produced – a 2019 Blade Silver beauty with Adrenaline Red interior – for only $150.

Only 921 of the original 1,500 tickets remain in the raffle, with the drawing set for Feb. 20 at 2 p.m.

The car – which was built just before the strike on Aug. 30, 2019 – is nicely equipped, beginning with the 2LT Equipment Group that includes head-up display, heated and ventilated seats, Bose 10-speaker audio system, universal home remote, curb view front cameras, and remote vehicle starter system.

Of course, it comes with the 6.2-liter V8 460 horsepower engine, 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, power-folding black convertible top with remote control, Magnetic Selective Ride Control, Performance Data and Video Recorder with Navigation, Multi-Mode Performance Exhaust, and Grand Sport Black-Painted Aluminum Wheels with Red-Painted Calipers.

The car looks extra sharp with the Carbon Flash Painted Ground Effects Package, Carbon Flash Badge Package, Carbon Flash Hood Stinger Stripe, Carbon Flash Painted Outside Mirrors and Red Seat Belts.

The winner will also have the option of picking up their new Corvette at the National Corvette Museum and will also get to take a guided tour of the Museum.

Tickets are available on the NCM website at Corvette Raffle – 2019 Blade Silver Corvette Grand Sport Convertible 2/20/20.

  1. I suppose that strike was responsible for my disappointment. I live in Frisco, Texas, where there are exotic cars in every block of traffic, and had been looking in vain for a C8 until I saw a new item about Rick buying the first one, that is not even a production unit. I had seen the announcement that the last C7 and the first C8 would roll off the production line on the same day, July 18, 2019. I wish I could erase that memory.

  2. DrZ here, there is a ton of mis-information buzzing around, I have 100422 c-8 to be produced this coming Thursday, and estimated completion date next Tuesday. I ordered through Terry Lebonte Chevrolet in Concord NC, In August of 2019, with a museum delivery. If you do your homework, GM is extremely hard to get straight answers at this point, but so far I’ve had decent luck getting ok answers from the dealer and the team at the museum. My 3LT, CMG with morello red guts is going to be a crowd pleaser here in Arkansas. It’ll be a nice mid engine mate to my 93 NSX. It’s hard to be patient, but I’m happy to hear that QC control is a high priority so as to minimize the duds that might slip through. Realistically, we’re planning early to mid March to venture to the museum to rev it up and hit the road!!! I’ve never had this hard a time trying to separate $76,584 from my pocket, but hey, this will be my 35th vette, (est), and a 2020 mid engine 😝 I just wish I coulda had a manual, but, it is what it is I guess…..

  3. The raffle is awesome! I’ve won it twice! Once with a C6 raffle, and the second time with a C7 raffle. The Corvette Museum staff was extremely friendly and quite accommodating to my needs. The factory tour was amazing! You get to enjoy the behind the scenes tour that most visitors will never get to see. Support the museum it’s a great place to visit!
