Now up for auction is this 2021 Chevrolet C8 Corvette LT1 finished in Rapid Blue over a Jet Black leather interior. One of the most highly anticipated sports cars in recent years, the C8 Corvette offers supercar-level performance from a mid-mounted 6.2L V8 engine. This 2021 example was factory optioned with the GM Performance Exhaust, upgraded 5 Trident Spoke wheels, yellow brake calipers, and yellow seat belts. Having traveled just under 250 miles from new, this C8 Corvette is now being offered for auction by its original owner out of Virginia.
This Corvette was ordered in Rapid Blue (632D). The C8 uses a three-layer multi-material structure for the frame and body made from aluminum alloy and carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic bonded composites. Factory features include LED headlights, power heated mirrors with integrated turn signals, and a body-colored removable roof panel that is stored behind the engine compartment when not in use. Edge Yellow painted brake calipers can also be seen behind the optional staggered 19"/20" 5 Trident-spoke aluminum wheels finished in Spectra Gray with machined faces and Michelin Pilot Sport All-Season ZP tires.
The interior is trimmed in Jet Black leather with Sky Cool Gray contrast stitching. The GT bucket seats offer 8-way power adjustability and feature Corvette logos embossed in the headrests as well as optional yellow seat belts. Other factory features include an HD color touchscreen infotainment system with voice recognition, wireless Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth capability, dual-zone climate control, a rear-view camera, rear park assist, a Bose 10-speaker premium sound system, and keyless entry and start. The leather-wrapped flat-bottomed multifunction steering wheel sits ahead of a 12” customizable color screen that shows an array of information including a 7k-RPM tachometer, a digital speedometer, trip computer, tire pressure, g-force, oil pressure, fluid temperatures, fuel level, and more.
The C8 is powered by a mid-mounted 6.2L V8 engine that sends 490 HP and 465 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a Tremec 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, allowing acceleration from 0-60 MPH in under 3 seconds. The optionally equipped Performance Exhaust provides a slight increase in power and gives the Corvette a more aggressive tone. The C8 also comes standard with Brembo brakes, a mechanical limited-slip differential, and a Driver Mode selector which enables variable settings for shift points, steering response, engine sound, and braking feel. With less than 250 miles traveled from new, this C8 remains under factory warranty.
This sale will include a clean title (lien), owner’s manuals, and the original window sticker. Offering performance and technology to rival some of the most expensive supercars in the world, the C8 remains one of the most highly acclaimed and desirable new cars on the market. Do not miss your chance to become the next owner of this nicely appointed 2021 example.
