Wander with me and see what it’s like to attend the reveal of the 2020 Corvette Stingray Convertible by Chevrolet. Ever want to know what this unveiling event looks like? Let me show you my experience, as I attended the West Coast premiere of the first Corvette hardtop convertible. Chevy invited WhereGalsWander to attend the launch on October 2nd at The Motoring Club in Marina Del Ray.
We arrived just before the doors opened at 3:30 PM. The Motoring Club is a clubhouse, vehicle storage, social club membership for car enthusiasts. This was the first time it had hosted an event such as this. The audience was a mix of freelance writers, photographers, social content creators/bloggers, Corvette owners, journalists, PR people and the wonderful folks from Chevy. Special thank you to Scott and Zach for the invitation.
As soon as we walked through the doors, the champagne started popping and the countdown clock began. I did a quick interview with Shad Balch, Manager of New Product and Public Policy Communications from General Motors. Exciting to see the first-ever power-folding hardtop that can be operated up to 30 miles per hour. We also talked about road trips, and I shared with him my latest adventures taking on women-only trips such as up the Pacific Coast Highway and The Loneliest Road in America.
Another glass of champagne and the countdown was at the end. It’s a simultaneous first glimpse of the stingray across the country. The public reveal would not happen until 30 minutes later. Shad introduced the Chevy team: Vlad Kapitonov, Lead Exterior Designer and Tristian Murphy, Interior Design Manager. Watching the the red ropes removed just increased the anticipation. The designers told stories of designing the Corvette and then…the sheet was removed. And it was just stunning.
The Reveal of the 2020 Corvette Stingray
The 2020 Corvette Stingray Convertible was orange and black, top-down, revealing a light creamy beige interior. This car was sexy and it knew it. The demonstration of the hardtop system interlocking and folding was like watching a Transformer movie. And everyone was in awe. Convertible MRSP will be starting at $67, 495.
How cool am I to possibly be the first female to sit in it on the west coast?
