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.
