Chevrolet says the basic 2020 Corvette is a lot cheaper, with a base price of around $60,000. NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick bought the first 2020 Corvette, with the Vehicle Identification Number 1, last weekend at the Barrett-Jackson auto auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, for $3 million. The car was auctioned off to benefit the Detroit Children’s Fund which helps local schools in the Detroit area.

The Corvette will be on display at Yes Chevrolet today until 6 p.m.
