Imagine how excited the owner of the 269th mid-engine Corvette produced must have been upon taking delivery.
Now imagine how upset that same owner must be after an accident left his 2020 Stingray looking like this.
The car, featuring extensive damage to the front end as well as body panel damage on both sides, is being auctioned on the popular on-line auction site, Copart.
Copart claims the vehicle is valued at $107,699, but that must include the market adjustment being charged by some dealers since a 2LT Z51 would be pushing it to hit much past the $80,000 mark, even with the $995 black wheels, $995 engine appearance package, and $4,850 5VM carbon-fiber aero.
But that’s being nitpicky.
What this Ceramic Gray Metallic beauty with two-tone Sky Cool Gray seats started out costing is really irrelevant at this stage of the game. We’re just wondering how hard it would be to secure replacement parts this early in the production of the mid-engine Corvette, and we’re likewise curious about whether any damage has been done to that 495 horsepower engine. Of course, if someone is looking to customize their 2020 Corvette with one of the aftermarket kits that have begun surfacing, this might be an ideal candidate.
So, enthusiasts, would you be satisfied to own this car if it had been fully repaired, or would you always have a little regret in the back of your mind owning a previously wrecked vehicle?
