We are well-aware of the details of the last unit of C8 Corvette for the 2020 model year: a Sebring Orange convertible. Of course, we are pretty sure that many of you are curious as to the specs of the first C8 Corvette for 2021.
Well, according to the Corvette Action Center, the first 2021 C8 Corvette that rolled to the Bowling Green Assembly Plant is a Torch Red Z51 Coupe. The R8C delivery platform of the National Corvette Museum will deliver the vehicle to its customer.
This coupe is equipped with the Z51 Performance Package. It also comes with the all-new FE4 magnetic shocks and a plethora of add-ons. The exterior will sport racing stripes, including the Hash Mark graphics. The 3LT interior combined with the Competition Sport seats is also a definite highlight for our VIN 001 2021 C8 Corvette. Accordingly, the price for this factory-customized ‘Vette is roughly $84,000.
The only thing we know right now is that this vehicle will be turned over to the R8C Museum Delivery. The name of the customer and its delivery location is still an enigma to us. However, we can safely say that this person is not ordinary. There’s a probability that the customer has tight connections to the Corvette Team. After all, seizing the highly-coveted VIN 001 is not easy.
It is still uncertain if there are 2021 C8 Corvettes that will be delivered before the year ends. There are rumors that despite the delays in its production, the Corvette Team is rushing its way to finish some orders during the holiday seasons. That’s something that we will find out in the coming days.
