This Chevrolet Corvette C5 is so “new” that even the plastic covers on the seats and the labels are intact.
The seller has also added that the car has never been registered and has got a mere 28 miles on the odo. There are repeated mentions of this being the last C5 Corvette ever made and even the date of it rolling out of the Bowling Green Assembly plant has been furnished. It’s 1st July 2004, by the way.
The car is currently at the National Corvette Museum and has been loaned out because of its historical significance.
The asking price of $1,000,000 may sound too much for a C5 Corvette which used to cost around $50,000 during its production run. But then again, this is the last one of its kind. The last Chevrolet Corvette C5. So die-hard Corvette lovers with a million dollars to shell out on a piece of Corvette history wouldn’t mind in spending that kind of money to own it.
