Now that Chevrolet has auctioned off the 2020 Corvette VIN 001 at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction for $3 million, which will go to charity, the company can begin to make the first customer deliveries. But when? How about the end of February? According to a press release put out by GM, the first deliveries of the 2020 Corvette Stingray will happen at the end of February.
The company stated that the Bowling Green Assembly Plant in Kentucky will begin production of the cars at the beginning of the month and by the end of the month the first batch of cars will be ready for deliveries to dealerships where the good folks who paid for the cars will be able to pick them up.
We’d assume Chevrolet is going to take its time with these first cars to ensure that they are up to snuff in terms of quality. The last thing that Chevrolet would want is for the first customers to get the 2020 Corvette and be disappointed with the car. Quality control may keep these cars on hold a bit before releasing them so that GM can be sure everything checks out.
Even if Chevy keeps the first cars for three weeks, it’ll be less time than the company spent on the C7, according to Corvette Blogger. Chevy kept the first C7s for up to five weeks to ensure they were on par with what Corvette customers have come to expect.
