The National Corvette Museum has had a long-standing relationship with General Motors. Both entities work to support each other and to forward the Corvette banner. Lately, the mid-engine, next-generation C8 Corvette has been burning up the interwebs with spy photos, sightings and the official reveal of the official reveal date.
Next month, the automotive world will focus their lenses on the official next-gen reveal on July 18 & 19 in Orange County, California, when the black and white cladding will fall away and the world of mortals will set their eyes on the C8 for the first time. Many are clamoring for an opportunity to be one of the firsts to see it in the flesh, and thanks to General Motors and the NCM, two individuals will receive tickets to this exclusive, invite-only affair.
The NCM is currently offering a pair of C8 reveal tickets graciously donated by GM on their Ebay account, which will go to the highest bidder in just three days from this writing. As you can imagine, bidding for this opportunity is already at a fevered pitch, with 58 bids already on the ticker and the current offering set at $9,600.
According to the Ebay ad, “This auction is for two (2) tickets (two people) to the event and includes overnight accommodations for July 18 & 19, access to both days of reveal festivities, a group lunch and tour of an area auto museum on the morning of Friday, July 19, bus transportation to and from both days of activities, and as a special gift from the Museum, an event polo only available to those on this trip.”
The ad emphasizes that transportation to and from the event is NOT included, so you’d need to find your way to California, if you’re not already from there. But, once you’re there, you’ll have plenty to see and do. The official ‘C8’ reveal will be held on the evening of Thursday, July 18. The following day, GM will host a reveal ‘expo’, giving participants the chance to see the car up close, network and talk to key people on their team, browse additional displays and more.
If you’re Paypal has the depth and you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime event to give you bragging rights to all your friends, this is one event that can thrust you forward into Rockstar status with the click of a button. You just need to be the highest bidder when time runs out. Good luck!
