You can customize the 2020 C8 Corvette's VIN for $5,000
This is still one of the more obscure options I've seen offered on a car. Just like the C7, you can customize the VIN of the C8 Corvette.
According to CarsDirect, for the price of $5,000, all C8's are eligible for a customer-selectable VIN option where you can change the last 5 digits.
According to Chevy's latest order guide, all versions of the C8 Stingray purchased via factory order are eligible for a customer-selectable VIN option. As we've seen with past instances with the C7 generation, buyers can request the last 5 digits of the car's VIN (as opposed to the full 17 digits).
While that doesn't let you spell out your name or call out your favorite sports team, it does create the opportunity to take the phrase "make it yours" to another level by memorializing things like a date or other number otherwise significant to you personally or from a collector's standpoint.
However, the option certainly doesn't come cheap. According to GM spokesperson Kevin Kelly, the option adds $5,000. That's $1,000 per digit, about 8% of the car's approximate base price of $60,000. Not all VINs will be eligible for customization and will be subject to availability.
Kelly adds that "If the customer orders early enough we can hold a desired VIN for them." Translation? If you're set on staking your claim on a specific number, you may want to place your order sooner rather than later. Deliveries are expected to begin sometime in early 2020.
Personally I wouldn't spend the 5 grand to change the VIN but would anyone on here consider doing it?
