From October 22-24th, Barrett-Jackson will be holding a modified version of their Scottsdale Fall Auction. To reduce the WestWorld event center’s maximum occupancy and comply with the social distancing guidelines that got BJ’s 2020 Palm Beach sale canceled, the traditionally packed venue will be limited to bidders, consignors, and their guests. There will be no general admission this time around, but if you register to bid, not only will you be able to attend enthusiast nirvana without having to deal with large crowds, you will also gain the opportunity to get your hands on lot #699, an early C8 build that left the factory with the popular, but ultimately canceled, High Wing Spoiler LPO installed by the selling dealership.
The 2020 Stingray that wears VIN 1g1y72d40l5101661 has some interesting options to go along with its 5ZZ Carbon Flash Wing. Matching the wing in Carbon Flash are dual racing stripes, mirror housings, and the split five-spoke wheels. Under the stripes is a classic Torch Red paint job mirrored by an Adrenaline Red interior. The original owner also opted for the Z51 performance package, the performance data recorder, Torch Red seat belts, carbon-fiber interior trim, black rocker panel extensions, the carbon fiber engine appearance package, and the red engine cover.
This original Canadian car has only traveled 656 miles (1,056 klicks) and was treated to a full-frontal Xpel Ultimate Plus shield, and it appears as if the front crossed-flags logo may have been permanently removed during installation. It will cross the auction block at no reserve, raising the question of how the smaller crowd at BJ Scottsdale will affect prices; someone could walk out of the tent with a fantastic deal!
If you miss out on the unique red and black example or are more of an under the radar type of person, you might still find your huckleberry at the Fall sale. Also coming under the gavel at no reserve (this time for charity) is lot #3002, a Shadow Gray Metallic over Adrenaline Red 2020 Stingray Z51 that also, astonishingly, has the Carbon Flash high wing spoiler! This more subdued Z51 eschews the stripes for a set of Aquaman-approved “trident” wheels finished in Spectra Gray. Country and Western fans, take note that the winner of this mid-engine ‘Vette will also receive a guitar signed by a number of “notable” artists. Sadly, none of the autographs belong to our guy, Brad Paisley, but the “axe” could still add value to some buyers. 100% of the proceeds from the sale will benefit the Heartstrings Foundation.
This 2020 Corvette donated to benefit our friends at Heartstrings Foundation will be selling for charity at our Fall Auction. 100% of the sale price goes to helping veterans & active service members heal through the power of music.— Barrett-Jackson (@Barrett_Jackson) October 1, 2020

So, Corvette Nation, what would it be? You find yourself in Arizona with some spare cash later this month; which of these C8 builds best “floats your boat?” Would you go for striped and flamboyant, or are you bidding on the charitable and less in-your-face specimen?
