Celebrities around the world have a variety of cars in their garage. Some of them prefer to driven around whereas some like to drive it themselves. The same taste is actually reflected in many celebrity garages. We have featured cars owned by celebrities in the past and most of them have a garage that is a mix of luxury and performance. Famous Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone who is known for several action packed movies has recently bought an all-new Chevrolet Corvette C8 sports car. The owner of the dealership from where he took the delivery had posted the same on their Facebook page.
According to reports, Sylvester Stallone had moved from California to Florida last year and the Corvette C8 that he has bought recently is just a small gift for himself. He had bought the convertible version of Corvette C8 sports car from Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac of Murfreesboro in Tennessee. The dealer had then delivered the car to Florida.
In the Facebook post that the dealership had shared, it said, “We are extremely proud and honored (and a little star-struck) to be able to say Sylvester Stallone is now one of our customers. 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!”.
The owner of the dealership itself had taken initiative to get the car delivered to the popular actor. The car bought by the actor is seen in the images. It is a Corvette convertible painted in Rapid Blue shade. It is actually a popular shade in the C8 and it comes with s-spoke Spectra gray aluminium wheels. Looking at the picture it looks like the actor has not gone for the Z51 performance package.
The Z51 performance package gets a different body kit which includes an additional front splitter and a rear wing. It also skips on the electronic limited slip differential, larger brakes, Michelin Pliot Sport 4S ZP tyres and so on. Along with all these cosmetic and electronic updates, the Z51 performance package also enhances the performance of the Corvette C8.
Just like the exterior, the interior of the sports car also gets a shade of blue on the upholstery. It is a dual tone cabin which gets blue and black coloured leather. It gets modern features like touchscreen infotainment screen, wireless charging and so on. Sylvester Stallone has other cars in his garage too. He always had good taste in cars and owns Ferrari F40, a Lamborghini Countach, a Bugatti Veyron, Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen, Chevrolet Camaro, Rolls Royce and also a 1968 C3 Corvette.
The all-new Chevrolet Corvette C8 was introduced in the market back in 2019 and ever since then, it has been very popular. It now has long waiting period too. The actor loves to modify or customise his cars and it is expected that he’ll do something with the new Corvette C8 too. Chevrolet Corvette C8 is a mid-engine sports car that is powered by a 6.2 litre V8 engine. The engine is mated to an 8-speed DCT gearbox option.
