A jubilee example of the Chevrolet Corvette C8 sports coupe rolled off the assembly line of the American brand. The car pays homage to the first production Corvette, built in 1953.

Chevrolet faced difficulties in starting production of the C8 generation Corvette sports coupe, which were associated with a strike by the United States Automobile Workers (UAW) union, as well as the outbreak of the coronavirus infection COVID-19, forcing General Motors to temporarily suspend operations. The Bowling Green assembly plant in Kentucky, USA returned to normal in late May.

GM released its 1,750,000th corvette a few hours ago.

The iconic car was assembled last Friday and was built as a tribute to the very first production Corvette, which rolled off the assembly line back in 1953.

The jubilee version of the car is a well-equipped 3LT package with an Arctic White body color and an Adrenaline Red interior. This car replicates the exterior and interior colors of the 1953 OG Corvette.

The assembled vehicle is also equipped with the Z51 performance “package” and a number of other benefits including a front lift system, an engine exterior “package” and five-trident sterling silver aluminum rims with surface treatment. This version of the Corvette C8 costs over $ 81,000.

The mid-engined sports coupe will currently be housed in the National Corvette Museum. It will be raffled on Friday, September 4th, in celebration of the museum’s 26th anniversary, with tickets for the event costing $ 200 apiece, limited to 1,500 tickets.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the Corvette C8 will take part in the iconic Indy 500 race this year. The American C8-generation Chevy Corvette Stingray sports coupe will be the official Indianapolis 500-mile (Indy 500) race car this year. The start of the races is scheduled for August 23 (Sunday).
