It has been a long road from all the spy photos and rumors surrounding the mid-engine, C8 Corvette, but a live video on the National Corvette Museum’s Facebook page showcased the delivery of the first batch of 2020 Corvettes designated for its R8C delivery program, where buyers can specify the car be delivered to the NCM, where they can then set up a time to receive their new car after being prepped by the folks at the Corvette Museum. The NCM is directly-across from the assembly plant, and yes, GM used trucks to deliver the cars.
We’ve seen the photos of a sea of white car covers filling almost all the parking spaces at the Corvette Assembly plant, and as this photo shows, some of those white-clad C8s are now making their way into the hands of mere mortals. With all the delays that have hindered the date that enthusiasts could receive their Corvettes, there has been a lot of pent-up anxiety from those who have their car on order. Many enthusiasts have joined forums or groups to specifically locate their order’s progress and track their Corvette down the assembly line. This video shows that all the frustration may well be a distant memory soon enough.
This video also shows how the team at the NCM come together to complete the process of getting these cars into their gleeful owners. The NCM has a lot to offer besides its R8C program and delivering the world’s newest supercar to the masses entails more than simply driving it across the street. In the video, there are 12 cars being delivered this day, and the NCM anticipates 500 cars to be delivered for this model year.
There’s no annoying music and not even a lot of conversation, save for the occasional input from the knowledgeable folks at the Corvette Museum. It’s an interesting video, and for those who are anxiously awaiting their Corvette’s arrival, it’s a good sign that their wait may soon be over.
