With production of the 2021 Corvette momentarily stopped again at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant due to supplier issues, will the market for used 2020 mid-engine Stingrays remain stronger than ever?
We’ll know the answer to that question in just a few days when an Accelerate Yellow 2020 hardtop convertible goes on the block at the 2021 Lakeland Winter Auction set for Feb. 19-20 at the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus in Lakeland, Florida.
The most recent opportunity to purchase a previously owned 2020 Corvette came at Mecum’s Muscle Car City auction Jan. 23 when a Torch Red Z51 coupe with the 3LT package and 194 miles fetched $121,000.
The 2020 convertible to be auctioned off at Lakeland in a few weeks has all the right equipment, too, plus being in the very rare Accelerate Yellow color makes us wonder if the price could go a lot higher for this one if someone really wants that special shade.
Accelerate Yellow proved to be the second lowest color out of the 20,368 units produced for 2020, with just 137 convertibles (and 551 coupes) for a total run of 688. The rarest color, by the way, was Zeus Bronze, with 100 convertibles and 448 coupes for a total of 548.
This Z51, 3LT Stingray also features Trident 5 Spoke Wheels, carbon flash Z51 rear spoiler, carbon flash badges, a visible carbon fiber grille, full-length carbon fiber stripes, carbon fiber interior trim package, and black GT2 seats with yellow stitching.
We think the stripes really set off this car, which will be one of more than 400 lots covering nearly 100 years of history, including an all-truck hour on Feb. 19 at approximately 1:30 p.m.
If you can’t make it in person, you can also bid for your dream cars on the phone or online. Log on to CarlisleAuctions.com to take a peek at the vehicles already consigned, register to bid, or consign to sell.
