The Last C7 Corvette Grand Sport Built Will Be Sold For Just US$150
With Chevrolet’s all-new C8 Corvette replacing the C7 this quarter, the nonprofit National Corvette Museum (NCM) is raffling the final C7 Corvette Grand Sport as part of a fundraiser -- just 1,500 tickets are available for $150 apiece.
In 2019, GM’s Bowling Green Assembly Plant built 11,241 seventh-generation Corvette Grand Sports but now that the C7 has reached the end of the road, collectors are scrambling to get the last traces of the sports car.
The final C7 Grand Sport was built on August 30 of last year, and sports a 6.2-litre V8 engine with an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission that can produce 460 horsepower.
In terms of aesthetics, the C7 boasts an “Adrenaline Red” interior with heated and ventilated seats, and is finished in Blade Silver, features a Carbon Flash hood stripe, black aluminium wheels with red-painted calipers, a 10-speaker Bose sound system and a power-folding black convertible top. As is, the vehicle would retail for more than US$79K and is expected to be a centrepiece collector’s item for Corvette enthusiasts.
This isn’t the first special Corvette up for grabs this year. The last-ever C7 Corvette, a Z06 model built November 14, fetched US$2.7 million last year, while the first production C8 Corvette hammered for US$3 million during the Barrett-Jackson auctions this month.
The raffle is open to anyone over the age of 18 and tickets are available for purchase both online at the museum. However, the winning buyer must be physically present in Kentucky at the time of the draw. The raffle will be held at 2pm central time on 20 February at the National Corvette Museum.
