The release of the 2020 C8 Corvette is truly a landmark achievement for the automakers — and an exciting event for Corvette fans everywhere. Chevrolet has gone the extra mile to commemorate this momentous occasion with a free gift for its loyal fans who have purchased a 2020 C8 Corvette.

If you’ve bought a 2020 Corvette, Chevy will send you a 1:18 scale model, complete with an exterior color that matches your car. Your vehicle’s tiny twin will be mounted to a bespoke Corvette-themed plaque that bears your car’s VIN. The model’s base is about 10 by 5.5 inches, according to GM Authority. Although the models aren’t particularly detailed, lacking proper windows, wheel details, and metallic accents, that doesn’t make these commemorative gifts any less special.

This isn’t the first time that GM has sent out models to its loyal customers. Recently, Cadillac gave Cadillac CT6-V and CT6 Platinum buyers a 3D-printed model of the twin-turbocharged 4.2-liter V8 Blackbird engine.
