Mecum’s monster Spring Classic auction kicked off late last week in Indianapolis. With roughly 2,000 cars on the docket, there’s a little bit of something for everyone. One recent, very notable addition to that docket is Lot S108.1, a brand new Blade Silver 2020 Corvette Stingray.
The C8 is finished handsomely in Blade Silver Metallic with the Adrenaline Red leather interior. It’s equipped with the 2LT option package and shows just 11 miles on the odometer. Power comes from the standard 495hp LT2 mated to the 8-speed dual-clutch paddle-shift transmission. The engine exhales through the performance exhaust.
The exterior features the Carbon Flash badge package, 19 and 20-inch Silver-painted aluminum wheels, the body-color roof panel, and the front and rear cameras. Inside we see the Premium Infotainment 3 system with navigation, heated and ventilated seats, HUD, and the rocking Bose 14-speaker stereo.
This will be an interesting auction to watch. We all know C8 demand is off the charts right now as we’ve seen several listed for sale at $120,000 or more. Since this is first one to hit the auction scene, we are looking forward to seeing the bidding frenzy as it unfolds. If you’re tired of waiting for your new C8 to be built, this will be your best chance to take one home right now.
Lot S108.1 will cross the block this coming Saturday July 18th. In this new Covid-era, online bidding is already underway at Mecum.com and it’s up to $63,000 as of this writing. We’re just speculating, but our guess is that it’ll take right around $100k or more for this one to change hands.
Dana Mecum’s 33rd Original Spring Classic auction takes place now through Saturday, July 18th and the Indianapolis State Fairgrounds. Check out the Mecum website for more info.
