Unveiled as a 2020 model, the C8 Corvette shocked the automotive world with its mid-engine design and new look that combined elements of European exotics and American muscle. The automotive press loved the C8 so much that it rewarded it with many high honors, including Motor Trend’s Car of the Year. Fast forward to 2022 and the C8 Corvette is even better than its first model year and is still considered the most significant game-changer in usable mid-engine performance since the original Acura NSX came out in the 1990s. Sales numbers would be the key indicator as to how the public truly felt about the C8, and those numbers would show great success as it has become nearly impossible to get your hands on one from the factory or a dealership, resulting in some pre-orders being pushed into 2023. The base 2022 Corvettes are nice, but the example offered here is anything but base with the 2LT package as well as many dealer and factory options attached to it.


Delivered to its current owner on October 30, 2021, this eye-catching Amplify Orange Tintcoat with dual full-length yellow racing stripes 2022 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible 2LT is in flawless condition with little more than delivery miles on the odometer. After taking delivery from the dealership in Michigan, the consignor merely drove it home and parked it in his climate-controlled garage among his car collection. To complete the bright color scheme, body-color accents were added to the exterior and the calipers were painted the same yellow as the stripes, all at an extra cost of course. This Sting Ray’s exotic looks are enhanced with optional, dealer-installed black composite rockers and splitter added to the front, while a low rear spoiler was attached to the rear. Placed ahead of the silver-painted five Trident spoke aluminum wheels wrapped in 20-inch tires sits a 6.2-liter naturally aspirated aluminum pushrod V-8 engine combined with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Power output for the V-8 with its 2LT package produces 495 horsepower and 470 lbs.-ft. of torque, which flows out of its factory-installed, performance exhaust kit. By moving the engine to the rear and adding a quick-shifting dual-clutch with short gearing, it allows for this Corvette to deliver supercar performance never before seen in Corvette history. On the track or a straight line, the numbers only get better as this C8 will launch to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds all while achieving an 11.1-second quarter mile. The next closest all-around car package that even compares with the 2022 Corvette is the Porsche 911, but to even get one with similar features and performance, the price will most likely be double that of the Corvette. Simply put, this C8 Sting Ray Convertible 2LT will run laps around most cars that are times higher than its starting price.


Stepping into the cabin and sitting on the perfectly positioned, exceptionally comfortable leather seats, it feels like you are sitting in the cockpit of a high-powered fighter jet with all the technology controls right at your fingertips. Features like adjustable lumbar seat controls, Apple CarPlay, wireless charging, front and rear cameras, killer Bose 14-speaker audio system, and an 8-inch center-mounted touchscreen with Bluetooth give its occupants interior comfort and ease for any road trip. Even better for road trips, there is enough cargo space for a pair of golf clubs or a full-sized carry-on luggage bag.


There are very few cars that combine this level of technology and the ability to do 0-60 in 2.8 seconds – all with a convertible hardtop and most importantly air-conditioning. With impeccable American engineering, a sleek exotic/American sports car design, and half the maintenance cost of any foreign sports car, this “new” drop-top, mid-engine dream Sting Ray proudly stands as the most revolutionary Corvette in history.


With a plethora of boxes ticked, this highly optioned Corvette is sure to be even more desirable in the future. Many enthusiasts continue to wait for delivery or even a spot in line to order these newly redesigned and game-changing mid-engine Corvettes. Presented here is an opportunity to scratch the itch, let your money bring you happiness and get your hands wrapped around the wheel of this Sting Ray right now.
