When the C8 Corvette Z06 was unveiled 9 months ago in October of 2021 Rick Corvette Conti announced that his dealership Coughlin Chevrolet of Pataskala was going to have a bidding war of sorts for their C8 Corvette Z06 list they had already 100s of people on if not more.
The video Rick Corvette Conti shared was deleted but in the beginning of this video below you can see his response after that video had a really negative response as he explained it was the owners of Coughlin Chevrolet of Pataskala not himself making that decision of having the highest bidder win their first allocation of the Corvette C8 Z06.
2023 Z06 ORDERING RESPONSE
We decided to reach out to Coughlin Chevrolet of Pataskala on Instagram since they just had the C8 Z06 dealer tour and ordering is open and asked “What’s your highest bid for the Z06”?
They responded “We do not speak about that information to the public. Thanks!”..

We thought finding out what their highest bid was would help the “public” who would be bidding know what they need to “beat” to be their first C8 Corvette Z06 allocation.
We have since asked “How will the public know what to bid? and who’s the highest bidder at the moment” meaning did someone bid $10k over MSRP? Did they bid $100k over MSRP ect.. but no response yet.
We are not looking for a person’s name rather what is the highest bid that someone has to beat to be their first C8 Corvette Z06 allocation since they have said they are having a bidding war for over MSRP for it. Sounds like it might be a “blind” bidding war meaning just submit your highest bid for their C8 Corvette Z06 allocation and cross your fingers you were the highest bidder.
It’s pretty crazy not to know what to bid especially with them being in the Top 10 of dealers for Corvette sales and selling over 200 C8 Corvettes in the last few years. One of the top Corvette dealer Ciocca Corvette was very upfront and picked a day for people to stand in line first come first serve or send a wire and gained over 6,000 people on their list at MSRP. They sold over 1,400 C8 Corvettes last year. They also have a C8 Corvette Z06 tracker for their list.
We will keep you posted if they respond and if anyone has any information about Coughlin Chevrolet of Pataskala C8 Corvette Z06 “list” or “bidding war” leave a comment below.
UPDATE: August 4th, 2022
We asked what if we wanted to bid or the public wanted to know so they knew what they would have to bid.
They said they “will ask the right to member and back to us”
