As your Corvette nears completion, the National Corvette Museum initiates seamless communication, proposing a selection of convenient delivery dates, typically starting two weeks after the vehicle’s offline date.

Your Personalized Delivery Experience

The day arrives, and you, along with up to three guests, step into the National Corvette Museum. Special signs welcome you, marking the significance of this moment. A VIP guided tour, led by a museum staff member, immerses you in the Corvette’s rich history.

The pinnacle? Witnessing your new Corvette showcased in all its glory at Corvette Boulevard.

The R8C Museum Delivery isn’t merely about receiving a car; it’s about embracing a legacy, becoming a part of automotive history, and cherishing a journey that starts where Corvette legends are born.
