The 2023 Corvette Stingray was able to be configured by dealers in March, signaling production and deliveries were on its way. Fast forward to this month, the first 2023 Corvette Stingrays are now being delivered via the R8C program at the National Corvette Museum (NCM). Following the 2023 Corvette Stingray launch, the 2023 Corvette Z06 will be next in line.
The “R8C” program is a delivery option, referred to as “Option R8C,” and it’s available from any Chevrolet dealer for the price of $995 at the time of placing an order of a 2023 Corvette Stingray. Once the car has been assembled and deemed worthy of delivery, a representative from NCM contacts you and schedules a pick up. You’re allowed to bring up to three guests with you as long as they’re 10 or older, you can also invite family to livestream the event on NCM’s website.
As part of the delivery experience you’ll get a VIP tour of NCM where your vehicle will also be on display. Afterwards you will get a full delivery presentation of your vehicle where a special gold decal will be placed on the drivers side door jamb as means to commemorate the day. You’ll also get a personalized interior dash plaque, wall plaque, photo in front of the museum, and a 1-year membership to NCM. Director of Sales & Guest Operations of the National Corvette Museum, Stephanie Morrill told Corvette Blogger that they, they are excited for being able to make deliveries and they will also be raffling off Vin #1 in the coming weeks.
You can build and price the Stingray on Chevrolet’s website now, where it has a starting price of $61,900. It comes in three trims (1LT, 2LT, 3LT) as a coupe or convertible and is powered by the LT2 V8 engine. In addition there have been multiple interior updates up to this point including the stealth option.
