There aren’t enough good new stories that have come out in 2020, but one recent story has shined some light on an impressive feat. Chevrolet has just produced its 1.75 millionth Corvette. The Corvette is now in its eighth-generation and the 1.75th millionth Corvette was raffled off by the National Corvette Museum. The perks of the 2020 Corvette can not be understated, the 2020 Corvette C8 is the first mid-engine Corvette and it was built to impress any buyer. This is why the raffle was a huge success for Corvette and the winner has just been announced.

The 1.75th Millionth Corvette Has Been Raffled

The raffle drew hundreds of hopefuls that wanted to win the prize. On September 4th, 2020, the winner, Don Creekmore from Wichita, Kansas took home the top prize. The drawing was streamed on social media. Don received a 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Coupe that was finished in Arctic White paint with an Adrenaline Red interior and had never been driven before. The widely-popular Z51 Performance Package was included with its 3LT trim that offers the most Chevrolet has built for the Corvette. The color scheme of the Corvette is a throwback to the one-millionth Corvette that was produced in 1992. The 1.5 millionth Corvette was produced during the 2009 model year. The first Chevrolet Corvette ever made was created with a Polo White exterior and red interior. 

Anyone Else Ready To Win a Corvette?

As far as the future holds, the Chevrolet brand will see more raffles ahead taken care of by the National Corvette Museum. The Build Your Own 2021 Corvette Coupe will have a raffle slated for September 24th, 2020. The tickets are priced at $250 a pop, but another raffle is coming next month on October 15th, 2020 that will only cost $100 for a raffle ticket. The October raffle will be for a 2021 Corvette Coupe model as well with a Silver Flare finish. The National Corvette Museum is located in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Just across the street is the GM Bowling Green production facility that is the sole producer of the Chevrolet Corvette since 1981. 

Over 1,000 employees work at the production plant. The Cadillac XLR used to be made there as well, but now the sole focus is towards the Corvette. More lucky winners will be announced before the year is up to bring some delight and joy. To bring some excitement and joy into 2020, stop by Miami Lakes Automall to check our new Corvette collection.

$3 Million For A Corvette That Won’t Be Driven?

We recently witnessed the award season kick-off to start 2020 off with the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray earning the 2020 North American Car of the Year award. While the 2020 Chevrolet sports car is the very first 2020 Chevrolet Stingray has officially had its first sale to the tune of a whopping $3 million at an auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. The first-ever Chevrolet Corvette to carry a mid-engine build (this means the engine is literally in the middle of the vehicle, rather than under the hood) has a base price of $55,900 MSRP (Plus destination fee), but this is the only first ever built Chevy C8 Stingray. The event hosting this sale was a Narrett-Jackson auction with every bit of the transaction going to charity.

All For A Good Cause

The Detroit Children’s Fund, a not-for-profit organization, is responsible for the earnings. The money will be distributed across public schools in Detroit. The focus of Detroit Children’s Fund is to improve the quality of education in the city where General Motors has its main headquarters and thousands of workers. The sale was completed and sold to Corvette collector Rick Hendrick. Hendrick is apart of the Corvette Hall of Fame, being inducted in 2015. Hendrick owns a total of 94 dealerships, but among all the vehicles he owns, he says he won’t ever drive this first-ever C8. The first debut of the vehicle was launched with the help of actual astronauts to unveil the vehicle. The new mid-engine design, rear-wheel-drive sports coupe is one of the most sought after vehicles to hit the market in recent memory. The auction was actually the biggest success in the 49-year history of Barrett-Jackson Auctions with $141 million produced.

“I’ve been going to those auctions for 25 to 30 years and I’ve bought a lot of No.1s at auction for charity. But nothing like this car. This had bidders from all over the world. It was so much drama. When you have the CEO of General Motors on the stage, that’s a big deal,” Hendrick told the Free Press.

More On the “C8” Corvette

The winning vehicle will carry an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic with automatic shifting. The advantages that have pushed the latest Chevrolet to another level include technology upgrades. The engineers have added new performance components that come standard for each Chevrolet Corvette that allows the vehicle to have 25 percent more oil cooling than the previous-generation Corvette. This is thanks to the new chassis design, part of the changes to a new mid-engine design. The “C8” Stingray is the start of an all-new generation of Corvette vehicles that are fastest and strongest than ever. Engineers added in the legendary 6.2-Liter V8 powertrain that delivers 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. 

“Corvette has always represented the pinnacle of innovation and boundary-pushing at GM. The traditional front-engine vehicle reached its limits of performance, necessitating the new layout,” said GM President Mark Reuss.

Drivers looking to have fun and start up a vehicle with real power, step into the Chevrolet Corvette. The all-new 2020 Chevy Corvette is the first mid-engine Corvette ever made and the perks of owning this sports car come from the excitement of driving one. An eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox helps make for a smooth transition while moving. Owners can use the launch control function to operate their 2020 Corvette like never before. Want to see some real speed and some tires burn before hitting grease-lighting speeds? Thanks to an all-new burnout mode that warms the tires before going, the launch control helps owners get the most out of their most-prized vehicle. 

How to Use Launch Control

Once safety buckled up in the driver’s seat of the Corvette, place the car in “Drive” and select the track mode. With a simple double-tap on the electronic stability control button (ESC) to turn the feature off, drivers should then locate the Performance Traction Management (PTM) menu on the instrument cluster. Five choices are available for customers to choose from. The choices include Dry, Race, Sport I, Sport II, Wet. The choice should be made based on the weather and grip requirements. The best part is Launch Control is the feature works no matter which PTM mode is chosen. Press on the brake, press hard on the gas pedal at the same time and lift the brake once the reves settle at 3,500 rpm. The tires should be warmed before using this remarkable feature. 

More on the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette

Currently, 12 exterior body colors are available, but styling elements exist in different packages like the Z51 package. Some carry special emblems on the brake calipers and options exist to have a different look than the standard Corvette provides. Reports have been confirmed for a debut of the first 2020 Chevrolet Corvette convertible on October 2nd, 2019. While this remarkable roof-off version of the Corvette is about to come out soon, it might be a while for them to be fully stocked at dealerships. Curious to drive a new Corvette? We can help at Miami Lakes Automall with getting the process started and wrapped up for our customers.

What To Know About the Mid-Engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette

The summer is starting to cool off, but more heat will be turned up when the all-new new mid-engine Corvette arrives. This Corvette is the first mid-engined supercar Chevy has ever made. While some customers have grown a fondness towards hearing the sound of the engine coming from the hood, Chevrolet had other ideas for their 8th-generation Corvette. Chevrolet knows that some buyers won’t like how they are changing where the engine goes, but there’s no turning back now. Chevrolet has already made up their mind that its evolutionary design will win over new buyers. One fantastic reason why this might be certain? This all-new Corvette will be the fastest one ever made.

Chevrolet Is Winning Over New and Previous Customers Alike

Changes have already been made to direct the upcoming 2020 Chevrolet Corvette away from traditional aspects, and designs like having chrome wheels. Chrome wheels have been a long-running favorite amongst the conventional Corvette fans, but Chevrolet had to revamp their brand. With a new decade approaching and sales that weren’t as glorious as they once were, Chevrolet is making moves. Consider the positives that will come with this bold take on reinventing their prized Corvette sports car. For those Chevy fans that prefer the front-engined Corvette, keep in mind, Chevrolet has lowered the cost of the previous-generation, the C7 Corvette. That might win back some support for those who want to experience the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. Or perhaps the C8’s 6.2-Liter V8 known as the LT2 is the reason. 495 horsepower with 570 lb-ft of torque is impressive and 40 more horsepower than the previous generation C7 Corvette. However, for those who want the previous-generation Corvette are in luck.

How the Supplier Pricing Discount Works On a C7 Purchase

We’ve learned Chevrolet is extending “Supplier Pricing For Everyone” for the Corvette C7 through September 2nd, 2019. This pricing is reserved for huge discounts on the Corvette in the amount up to $9,404 price cut. There aren’t any hopes to jump through to gain this clearance price. The only way to have more of a savings is by choosing the highest-tier Corvette in the Corvette Z06 that starts at $95,020 MSRP (plus destination fee) and allows for savings of over $9,700. However, customers can expect a fantastic discount on the C7 Corvette, no matter which trim they opt for. 

Things To Remember About Discount Deal

Keep in mind, this unique offer is only allowed for customers who are purchasing their C7, not leasing.  The only other requirement to achieve these $9,000+ saving is to have owned any Chevrolet Corvette before. This is considered a loyalty discount meant to keep those with a Corvette, in a more modern Corvette. Without a previous Corvette, this deal loses $3,000 in savings for first-time Corvette owners. However, saving $6,000 or more on any vehicle is always a welcomed deal. For those who want to get the ball rolling on a new Corvette, we know the place to drive them home.

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Is So Powerful It Does What?

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

Chevrolet has an interesting dilemma on its hands. The latest details regarding the current production of the eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette dubbed the C8, has been pushed back again. The reason for the push back? The Corvette is too powerful. Testing has revealed that the latest generation Chevrolet Corvette simply launches ahead so hard and strong that the engine is causing damage to the actual frame and glass engine cover. There’s simply too much power for the chassis given the prototypes are fitted with twin-turbo V8s that are producing upwards of nearly 1,000 horsepower. So what does Chevrolet have in mind? Let’s explore.

Producing Engines That Are Too Strong?

Imagine crafting an engine so strong it simply tears apart the surrounding area of the vehicle. That is essentially what is going on behind the scenes. This news is according to sources close to the situation and Hagerty reporting on the subject. General Motors (GM) has missed two of their deadlines already in regards to the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette release, but this shows the automaker is ensuring the product is fully ready to go. No one wants a bent frame or any issues with a vehicle because it can’t handle its g-forces.

General Motors making sure their product is safe and secure is critical, but just the specifics of the current testing are noteworthy. The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 currently has a powertrain that’s simply too powerful it leads to the structural distortion of the vehicle. Specifically, the engine compartment’s glass hatch would break during testing. The acceleration was labeled frightening so much so that GM reached out to their lawyers about any potential risks they would face for producing and selling a vehicle so powerful and fast.

Making Sure the Product Is Glitch Free As Well

Aside from the adjustments that have to be made to the body and structure of the Corvette, the report goes on to say GM is also still figuring out how to adapt its standardized, global GM electrical system. While engineers are still finalizing the new system, this all-important system will infuse more than 100 interlinked computers on its Computer Area Network (CAN) bus. The design and engineering teams have more work to do to create the Corvette in the image they want.

So, with all this said, when can we expect to see the new 2020 Corvette? Hagerty insists the National Corvette Museum’s 25th birthday in August 2019 will be a good bet. Here’s hoping all the right technology of CAN is produced in time and that the frame is made stronger; we certainly hope to see all the strength of the powertrain is kept intact. Let’s hope this summer involves some good weather and the beautiful purr of a new 2020 Corvette. For those who can’t wait till the fall to drive a new Corvette, we know one place to find the newest Chevrolet sports car today.
