Since the start of the C7 generation, General Motors has thanked customers for buying a new Corvette with an exclusive “Thank You” gift that contained a letter and a frameable Corvette poster. GM offered a different gift for each new model as it was rolled out. If you ordered a Grand Sport, you got the Grand Sport poster. ZR1 owners received the ZR1 poster.
Now that the C8 Corvettes are out, GM is stepping its customer appreciation game up a notch by sending out these “Speed Shape Models” to 2020 Corvette Stingray buyers. The color of your model is color-matched to the exterior color of your Corvette, and every plaque shows the model year and VIN of the customer’s car.
CorvetteBlogger contributor Jeremy Welborn ordered VIN 050 for his Corvette to celebrate his 50th birthday and while the big gift showed up back in March, Jeremy received his Thank You gift from GM over the weekend and shared these photos with us:
Jeremy describes the model as being larger than the traditional 1:25 promotional models and he says its a lot heavier as well.
