Rick Hendrick must be feeling pretty good today now that his new 2020 Corvettes have arrived at his home dealership. The Chevrolet dealer and NASCAR team owner paid $3 Million for the VIN 001 Corvette Stingray at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction and this morning it arrived at Rick Hendrick City Chevrolet in Charlotte, NC.
Oh, did I say Corvettes as in more than one? That I did! Because Rick Hendrick also purchased the 2020 Corvette VIN 002 as well.
A Rick Hendrick auto transporter was spotted yesterday in Bowling Green parked outside the National Corvette Museum as well as over on the road that leads to the Corvette Assembly Plant. So we figured it was just a matter of time before his Corvettes were received.
Here’s a video posted to the City Chevrolet Facebook page showing the VIN 001 Corvette coming off the transporter:
We originally thought that this Arctic White Stingray was the VIN 002 Corvette, but have since learned it’s the Silver C8 Coupe shown below. Here are a few exhaust revs from the new mid-engine Corvette at the dealership:
These are exciting times and we are anxiously waiting to see “Real People” (A Chevy commercial reference) taking deliveries of their new mid-engine 2020 Corvettes.
We were told that there were two C8 Corvettes picked up in Bowling Green, but that could be a reference to Mr. Hendrick’s personal cars as we see several more coming off the truck as new video and photos from those there at City Chevrolet are posted online. Here is a Torch Red 2020 Corvette coming off the truck, and a photo of a Blade Silver Coupe that is confirmed to be VIN 002 inside the dealership we well:
