What’s the Offer Emelia Received On The C8 Corvette?

Hartford has received an offer of $180,000 for her C8 Corvette. It isn’t that big a number, but it is much more than what a brand-new top-spec C8 Corvette costs today. In one of her earlier videos, Emelia gave a split-up and mentioned that she has spent almost $150,000 on the car which doesn’t include sponsorships. To get an offer of more than what’s spent on it, it sounds like a good deal.

Why Is This C8 Corvette So Famous?

For the uninitiated, Hartford’s C8 ‘Phoenix’ Corvette became an internet sensation when it broke the record for the fastest Chevy C8 Corvette. The record, earlier held by Extreme Turbo Systems, was broken by Emelia and her team at the Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield, California in March this year. After a few runs initially, Emelia managed to beat the record and set a new time of 9.90 seconds, only to be broken yet again in the subsequent attempts.

After 9.90 seconds, it recorded 9.47 seconds, and the last run at the drag strip was the fastest of them, taking just 9.41 seconds with a trap speed of 144.84 mph.

Post this, the team took part in the LS Fest where Emilia finished the quarter-mile race in 9.71 seconds with a trap speed of 144.83 mph. Seeing this, the car was booted from the event for being too fast. It isn’t actually wrong, because the LS Fest doesn’t allow sub-10-second quarter-mile cars owing to the NHRA Safety and Speed regulations. The regulations state that every sub-10-second car needs to have safety features like fuel cell, roll cage, etc. to keep the driver and the onlookers safe. This C8 Corvette, obviously, didn’t have the measures and was not allowed to partake in the event.

Earlier in June, Hartford and her team returned to the Famoso Raceway to attempt a record again. The conditions weren’t that great, especially the temperature; so the team hit the track before noon. After a few test runs, the C8 Corvette recorded a quarter-mile time of 9.36 seconds with a trap speed of 147 mph, thus beating its own record by 0.05 seconds! This is the current record for the fastest Chevy C8 Corvette.

The C8 ‘Vette makes 495 ponies in the stock form, but this example puts out close to 1,200 horses! In this race, it put an extra load on the transmission and the team had to tread carefully to avoid a breakdown. In the initial runs, the car struggled to shift through the gears and even had oil leaking from the rear seal. But, everything fell into place in the last run and the new record was set.

Hartford told the buyer that the clutches need to be replaced in her car, so there’s that, too. She didn’t reveal her decision yet, but if you were in Hartford’s shoes, what would you have done – sell it or keep it?
