For those of you out there who are afraid your new mid-engine Corvette will disintegrate if the odometer climbs past 1,000 miles, take a look at this 2020 Stingray convertible currently up for sale on Auto Trader.
While perusing the listings for used C8s today, we came across this rather eye-opening ad for a Shark Gray Metallic hardtop convertible being offered with a clean Carfax by Les Stanford Cadillac in Dearborn, Michigan for $111,115.
Nothing shocking about that price, since we’ve seen folks asking much higher than that.
What IS shocking, however, is that this 3LT with Z51 Performance Package has already been driven a whopping 50,690 miles in its short life!
No, that’s not a typo – it’s not 5,690 miles or 569 miles or 56 miles – as you’re probably used to seeing if you’re in the market for a mid-engine Corvette.
Someone has actually gone out and used a Corvette just as Tadge Juechter and his crew intended them to be used all along – on a real highway for thousands of miles at a time!
Believe it or not, the car is still in one piece after all that “abuse,” too! While the photos aren’t of the best quality and don’t show any close-ups to reveal exactly what kind of condition the paint remains, it does appear to be in good shape. Unfortunately, no photos of the interior are included with the Autotrader listing, so we jumped over to Les Stanford Cadillac and found that the Jet Black leather interior features Competition Seats and Orange seatbelts.
Question for those of you seriously in the market: Would you pay more than $110,000 for a used C8 with this many miles? We’re thinking a more reasonable price would actually be in the low 80s, but we’ll see what this crazy market bears. What do you think?
One more thing: Can you believe someone actually was able to drive a new C8 for 50,000-plus miles and apparently still be able to sell it for more than they paid for it! Talk about your resale value. That’s just unbelievable!
