It’s not just everyday consumers that are falling in love with the Chevrolet C8 Corvette Stingray, as famed actor Sylvester Stallone recently treated himself to a brand new C8 in Convertible guise.
Stallone moved from California to Florida in the second half of 2020 and clearly eager to get himself a housewarming gift, was able to acquire a 2021 Corvette Convertible from Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac of Murfreesboro in Tennessee that then delivered the sports car to Florida.
“We are extremely proud and honored (and a little star-struck) to be able to say Sylvester Stallone is now one of our customers,” the dealer wrote in a Facebook post. We sold him this beautiful 2021 C8 Corvette! Here, Owner Bo Trivett and wife Jennifer are delivering him this beautiful car! Thanks for your business, Sly!”
Stallone’s Corvette is painted in Rapid Blue and includes the 5-spoke Spectra Gray aluminum wheels. While many of those to have purchased C8s have opted for the available Z51 Performance Package, Sly’s car doesn’t feature this kit, as evidenced by the lack of an additional front splitter and rear wing. This also means his car lacks an electronic limited-slip differential, enlarged brakes, a shorter final-drive ratio, and doesn’t feature the Z51’s Michelin Pilot Sport 4S ZP tires.
The interior of the car matches the exterior beautifully thanks to a mixture of black and blue leather.
Here’s hoping Stallone takes care of his Corvette and it doesn’t end up like this other Rapid Blue-painted Convertible listed for auction on Copart…
