The 396th mid-engine 2020 Corvette has traveled just 2,118 miles since the owner took delivery in February.
So much for the value of low-mileage beauties, though.
This once-proud Arctic White Stingray is being offered at auction on Copart with a salvage title now that a crash of some sort left the front end heavily damaged as well as the left rear in tatters.
The car likely is one of the most heavily optioned C8s produced so far, as it apparently listed for $119,500 with the expensive 3LT and Z51 packages checked off. Just think, if it had not been wrecked, it could have been sold at Mecum or Barrett-Jackson for perhaps $150,000 or more.
Copart says the car started and ran at idle when it first arrived at their site in Tampa, Florida, but the auction company makes no guarantee that it still does.
They list the estimated retail value now at $79,591, though we’d be very hard-pressed to pay that. Could you imagine the hit you’d take years from now when trying to resell this car now that it’s been all over the Internet with its front bumper and left rear wheel hanging off? Every future buyer will know the history of this car, thanks to the Web.
It appears this Corvette might be better off serving as a parts car by selling off the two-tone Dipped Natural and Black interior, roof panel, headlights and taillights, and of course the LT2 495-horsepower engine.
On the other hand, perhaps if someone is able to buy the car at a reasonable price (and we don’t really know what we would consider reasonable), he might be able to add a custom widebody kit and new wheels to have a really unique C8.
We first heard about this car from the folks at autoevolution, and they speculate that repairing the car doesn’t make financial sense, given that the dual-clutch transmission might be damaged and the front end has a caved-in AC condenser and radiator.
What do you think is the best avenue to take with this 2020 Stingray?
