A more patriotic car than a Corvette, there might not be.
So it’s no surprise that this example has literally turned into a rolling tribute to the American flag, intentional or not by the original owner.
We say original owner because this 2020 Stingray recently became one of the new mid-engine Corvettes to be flipped for a nice profit, selling for $90,000 on Cars & Bids just in time for the new owner to enjoy the Fourth of July.
Not a bad paycheck for the first owner, who enjoyed the car for some 14,600 pleasure-filled miles after apparently paying $77,180 for it, including some $17,185 worth of options.
This custom Stingray started out with an Arctic White exterior over an Adrenaline Red 2LT interior, then the owner added custom splashes of blue wrap on the hood, top, rear deck, lower side panels, and portions of the front and rear bumpers and completed the look with red wrap on the Z51 rear spoiler and side mirrors.
It all adds up to one of the more distinctive C8 Stingrays we’ve seen so far. While some might think it goes too far, we’re of a mind that it’s individual touches like these that make a Corvette even more special to its owner.
By the way, this car was nicely equipped when it left the Bowling Green factory, too, starting off with the Z51 Performance Package that includes larger Brembo brakes, Magnetic Selective Ride Control, performance exhaust, shorter final drive ratio, electronic limited-slip differential, and heavy-duty cooling system. The 2LT package also adds heated and ventilated power adjustable seats, upgraded Bose audio system with 14 speakers, head-up display, heated steering wheel, heated and power-folding side mirrors, wireless phone charger, rear camera mirror, and Performance Data and Video Recorder. It looks like the owner also checked the box for the Front End Lift option.
Of course, all C8s come with the 6.2-liter LT2 V8 engine capable of 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, connected to a new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
