Great News out of Florida. The 2020 Corvette that was hit by a drunk driver is getting repaired.
I have been following this story since I broke it a couple weeks ago. I was wondering if this wrecked 2020 Corvette would actually be repairable.
It appears that it’s currently in the process of getting repaired so the owner can enjoy it.
Now, as you can imagine buying a brand new super car, getting into an accident then having it repaired isn’t exactly my cup of tea. However, in today’s environment and lack of cars being built, one may not have a choice.
If it were me and under normal circumstances I would have pushed for the car to be totaled. However, If you look at all the pictures we have obtained, you will see the car held up very well under the impact and very minimal damage was done to underneath the car.
Outside the Hood, Fenders, fascia. It’s obvious the car will need the front coolers replaced, miscellaneous hoses, clips, screw, etc. this car appears to be easily fixable.
Looking closer at the car there are 2 front impact beams. The beams did their job and are easily replaceable, but It’s just a matter of getting parts. Getting parts on a brand new car can be the hardest part of the repair.
Possibly the factory can help out and ship parts to the customers Chevy Dealer Body shop to speed up the repair process.
For some reference points if you go watch the first part of Chevy Dude’s Cutaway 2020 Corvette video you will see how easy this car is to repair. Good news for future people in accidents. Video can be found here.
Also good news, as reported, the driver and passenger of the 2020 Corvette walked away with minimal injuries.
Great Job to GM and the Corvette design team to make this car extremely safe.
We were also able to obtain several never before seen photos of the wrecked 2020 C8 Corvette. Check them out below and let us know what you think.
