The last Corvette C7 has the conveyor belt – Roadshow
The end of an era.
Happy trails, C7 Corvette. The last unit of the seventh generation of the sports car rolled off the Assembly line on Thursday as the Chevrolet production of cars wrapped in its Assembly plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
don’t be too sad, because now the car manufacturer starts with the preparation of, and conversion for the, also known as the C8. The last Corvette C7 sold for a mighty good thing. Already in April, GM confirmed it would send these , with all proceeds going to charity. At the Barrett-Jackson-Northeast auction last June, selling this car for a whopping 2.7 million dollars when the hammer went down.
All proceeds went to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to towers Foundation, which builds “mortgage, for free smart homes for the most catastrophically injured service members,” as Chevy said, time. It also works to pay off mortgages for the families of emergency responders killed in the line of duty.
The car is a black– model, pumping with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine 650 HP. It will forever be known as the last front-engine Corvette, as the 2020 Corvette Stingray, the engine moved behind the driver, where it is mounted in the middle.
if This was the last Corvette C7 life does not come much earlier, however. Chevy previously confirmed, Roadshow, the, the UAW-GM-seen strike, thousands of workers walk off the job, some on the left of C7 Corvette production in limbo. When the workers returned, after hashing, a new employment contract, she got back to work building the last of the C7-generation car.
This also led GM toof next year. The first mid-engine corvettes were to reach buyers by the end of this year originally. We probably will not see, the first year of 2020 corvettes owners until March 2020 at the earliest.
In the meantime, pour one out for the C7 Corvette. Like those that came before it, it consistently did battle with the best in the world.
