BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — The first 2020 Corvette has rolled off the assembly line at the General Motors plant in Kentucky. 

GM says the first new model of the iconic sports car was completed on Monday at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, where all Corvettes are built. 

GM said the first shipments to dealers will happen later this month or in March. 

The new Corvette, the first of its kind with a mid-engine, will have a base price of about $60,000. 

It won the 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year award in November.
