Want a new C8 Corvette in your driveway, but don’t want to wait your turn at a Chevy dealer?
The answer could be this Torch Red 2020 Stingray convertible with Jet Black interior, currently being auctioned off on Bring a Trailer. With four days to go, the highest bid has climbed to $84,500 – nearly $5,000 over the MSRP of $79,660.
This non-Z51 model is nicely equipped, though we’d prefer to see the black nacelles, high wing spoiler, side skirts, and front splitter that are missing and would really add some visual punch.
The car does have several popular options, notably the highly desirable 2LT package that includes the head-up display, heated and ventilated seats, heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, rear camera mirror, front view camera, performance data and video recorder, dual zone automatic climate control, power folding mirrors, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, upgraded 14-speaker Bose entertainment system, and more.
TOther nice options include the front lift system and 19-inch and 20-inch Carbon Flash painted wheels, along with the Performance Exhaust that adds 5 horsepower so the standard 6.2-liter V8 engine now produces 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
The new owner will also enjoy an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, a power convertible hardtop that takes 17 seconds to retract, a touchscreen infotainment and navigation system, and a configurable digital instrument cluster.
The car has been driven just 340 miles and was delivered to Bob Valenti Chevrolet in Mystic, Connecticut. It’s not been titled or sold to a private owner yet, so you could be the original owner if you’re prepared to shell out enough money.
We’d expect that $84,500 bid to go considerably higher over the next four days, and we’ll keep an eye on it to see what the final damage is. What would you be willing to pay?
