OT For all you Mid Engine dreamers
Posted by: Caraholic4life ()

This evening I was browsing the Copart Auction sites and decided to see how many 2020 Corvette's they had available. Currently they have Six.
[www.copart.com]

They have several coming up and the yellow one in this link is currently being bid on. It is at $60.00 at the moment which would make the transaxle affordable huh.confused smiley
I do expect that in six days when the bidding ends, that the final price will be a weee bit more, but it will be interesting to see what it sells for.

It will be interesting to see where the salvage prices go on these cars since the transaxles are reportedly as I understand it, not being made available to "Purchase" over the counter. The overall condition of this example makes me think that it would only be valuable as a "Donor" car for something and not much else.
I imagine that in a couple of years there will be at least a few of these drivetrain's in kit cars of some variety, maybe like the Factory Five GTM?

Now at $3100...what is that transaxle by itself worth?

For what your getting seems to me $5-6K is realistic.

Mayber it is just the way the shdaows play, but that airbag appears to be more red-ish than the typical white we normally see, and there are definitely some kind of stains on the Driver's seat-belt.
Also, in the frightened world of China Flu, they could even be talking about that mask sitting on the passenger seat! hot smiley

What is the difference between model 2LT and 3LT?

The easy answer is probably about twenty five grand.

Previously - C7 & other models the 1LT,2LT,3LT are trim option packages. 1LT had no nav system, base sound system, and such. 2Lt and 3LT added nav system, leather seats, leather wrapped steering wheel and other stuff like that. These trim levels had really nothing to do with performance options or upgrades like Grand Sport, ZR1, ZL1. All 2020 C8's are base engine n/a LT2.

I went back and looked this evening to follow up on this auction.
Apparently the car has been SOLD but I was unable to see a sales price.
It would have been nice to know for future reference.
