The C8 Corvette has been in customers hands for about four months, and that’s allowed many car enthusiasts to take delivery of their own, see one on the road, or at least read about them here. But the longer they are out and about, the more they can encounter trouble. That’s just what happened to this very wrecked C8 Corvette, which will soon be up for auction on the crashed car auction site Copart. Other than the obvious and extensive damage, the biggest question with the listing is that the vehicle is valued at $107,699.
It’s important to note Copart isn’t saying they expect to get that much money for the car. Even a 2020 Corvette Stingray with a more minor scratch or dent will certainly take a hit in value. But this C8 Corvette is a 2LT model that probably cost between around $75,000 new. We know there have been some crazy dealer markups for the 2020 ‘Vette, so it’s interesting to see Copart including what could be a $30,000 markup in their value estimate for this car.
Regardless of the price, this is a nicely optioned 2020 Corvette Stingray. As stated, it’s a 2LT model with all the best options. Copart notes it has the all-important, $5,000 Z51 performance package for starters, but it also has some carbon fiber upgrades. The carbon engine appearance pack is nice, but this Corvette has the extremely rare carbon fiber aero package, a $4,850 option that is currently unavailable due to supplier issues. It also has the high rear wing, that has also been canceled for the same reasons.
This Ceramic Matrix Grey model is a great spec for the wrecked C8 Corvette, but is it worth buying one with so much damage? Plus, replacement parts have got to be rare and expensive considering how new this car is. It’s definitely a risk, but if you are looking for a massive project, or want to extensively modify your mid-engined Corvette without fear of butchering a clean one, this is a great option. Just hope it doesn’t sell for $107,699.
