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.

  1. Dana Mecum. It had to happen. Even in the first year. One goes to auction. Blade Silver is a very attractive color that did not sell very many on the popularity scale. It appeared that this C8 does is not photographed with a Z51 spoiler and it has stock wheels. Yet the car is an LT2 which provides for the Z51 spoiler, if that package is ordered. The article claimed that the “standard 495 horsepower engine…” Technically, the 490 hp engine is standard. Then apparently it is mentioned that the car has a, “…perforamcne exhaust…” That upgrade is why the engine has max power. Thus the car is not a Z51. Further, there is no mentioned of magnetic ride control. It is a coupe’ and it is a 2020, and it is nicely optioned with the exception of that garish red interior that totally overwhelms the eye and belies the relative conservatism of the Blade Silver paint job. And yes, it’ll be interesting to see what it goes for.

  2. Good article Alex.

    We have a blade silver (our 11th Vette) arriving supposedly in August or early Sept (we ordered it Aug. 1, 2019), and our intent is to take it to an auction. If anyone wants to meet us at the dealership before we go to auction, they will save well over $15,000 from what it will cost to sell at auction. The reason? The tax that would be paid by me if I first put it in my name, and the cost to get it to auction, and any fees involved at auction. Example: If for example, I price it to sell it at auction, it might be for $115,000. If I sell it to someone when it arrives at the dealership, I’d sell it for a flat $15,000 LESS, or $100,000. That’s just an example, I’m not stating those are our real numbers either high or low. It’s up for negotiation.
