The very first factory-built right-hand-drive C8 Corvette registered in Australasia will soon be on the road in Victoria.
“This is a significant milestone for GMSV and while we would have loved to have celebrated with more fanfare, we have had to adjust our plans in light of Covid-19 and lockdown restrictions,” said Director of GMSV, Joanne Stogiannis.
“It is a doubly-exciting time for Corvette fans in Australia and New Zealand, as later this month our right-hand-drive C8 Corvettes are due to go into regular production at the famed Bowling Green Plant in Kentucky.”
The team at GMSV say that launching an iconic car such as Corvette during a global pandemic has presented its own unique set of challenges. “We always wanted the arrival of C8 to be a special, curated experience – but the situation in which we find ourselves means we have to adapt,” said Ms Stogiannis.
“We’re just as excited as all Corvette enthusiasts and owners-to-be to see one on the road Down-Under and want to assure our passionate fans that we have activities planned for when restrictions allow to showcase this special vehicle.
“We can’t wait to see more of these amazing factory-built right-hand drive models on our roads in coming months and look forward to engaging with owners and clubs around Australia and New Zealand.”
