Rare 2014 Corvette Media Launch Kit on eBay

By -


When the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was introduced on January 13th, 2013, media guests in attendance received a limited-edition media kit with information on the seventh-generation Corvette, and a unique plaque with the new Stingray badge. With only around 2,000 media members on hand, these 2014 Corvette media kits were limited to just 2,014 units, making them extremely rare on the open market. However, these hard-to-find media kits are gorgeous collector’s pieces, and for diehard Corvette memorabilia collectors, this kit is a must-have.

Immediately following the debut of the 2014 Corvette back in January of 2013, a few of these media debut kits appeared on eBay. They were selling for between $300-$600 in normal form, while one that was sold by General Motors and signed by C7 Corvette team members sold for over $4,000. Unfortunately, very few of these C7 Corvette debut kits hit the open market, but one has just shown up on eBay as part of a fundraising package for a Connecticut school program.

The C7 Corvette Stingray media launch kit comes in a black box with a bright silver slip shell inside sporting the new Corvette logo. When you remove that cover, you find a magnetic box that opens to reveal a bright silver book packed full of information on the 2014 Corvette.

You will also find a USB drive with media information including press releases and images. Last, and most importantly, there is a chrome C7 Stingray badge mounted on a plaque with the date of the debut and the serial number out of 2,014 units.

The image above showing the Corvette launch kit all spread out is not the kit for sale. The one listed on eBay right now is still sealed from the event. The one above is my own kit, which is not for sale. However, if you want to get ahold of one of the 2,014 C7 Corvette media launch kits, click here to head over to eBay to place your bid.
