The 8th-generation Chevrolet Corvette ushered in a new era for GMs flagship sports car, featuring a mid-engine layout for the first time in the brand’s year history. This 2022 Corvette Stingray Convertible was ordered in Ceramic Matrix Gray over a Tension/Twilight Blue leather interior and was delivered new to Phillips Chevrolet of Illinois. It came optioned with 3LT Preferred Equipment Group, the Z51 Performance Package, a front suspension lift system, carbon-fiber interior trim, Carbon Flash painted exterior accents and Carbon Flash-finished wheels. Showing just over 50 miles driven since new and remaining under the care of its original owner, this 2022 Corvette Convertible is now being offered for auction out of Ohio.
The exterior is finished in Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic (G9F) and features a power-operated retractable hardtop painted in Carbon Flash in addition to the front spoiler, side air intakes, rear wing, and rear diffuser. Equipment includes LED headlights with daytime running lights, power-adjustable and heated side mirrors, black brake calipers with red Z51 logos, quad polished exhaust outlets, and black Corvette badging. The staggered 19”/20” 5-spoke aluminum wheels are finished in Carbon Flash with a machined lip and are mounted with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. The exterior received an application of ceramic coating by the original selling dealership and the windows have been professionally tinted as well. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The interior is upholstered in two-tone Tension Blue leather with a contrasting Twilight Blue dashboard, center console, two-tone door panels, and carbon-fiber trim. The 8-way power-adjustable GT2 bucket seats feature heating and cooling functions with Tension Blue seatbelts and matching premium carpeted floor mats. The optional 3LT Convertible Preferred Equipment Package adds an 8” Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system with navigation, a 14-speaker Bose audio system, heads-up display, an HD front curb camera, a performance data and video recorder, a heated leather steering wheel, wireless charging, and a rear cross-traffic alert system as well as a side blind zone alert. Standard equipment includes a rearview camera with Rear Park Assist, a customizable 12” digital gauge cluster, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, and remote start.
The C8 is powered by a mid-mounted 6.2L LT2 V8, which sends as much as 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. This C8 came optioned with the Z51 Performance Package which equips an electronic limited-slip differential with performance gearing, Z51 suspension components, a heavy-duty cooling system, Z51 Performance brakes, and the Performance Exhaust System, which provides a slight increase in power and gives the Corvette a more aggressive tone. The seller reports the delivery inspection and service have been completed, and that the remainders of the 3-year/36k-Mile comprehensive and 5-year/60K powertrain warranties may be transferred to the next owner.
This sale will include a clean title (lien), owner’s manuals, and the original window sticker.
