Chevy Pairs Corvette Specials for Chicago

February 1, 2007
Chevrolet’s twin Corvettes at next week’s Chicago auto show will be special editions, not the long-rumored Blue Devil, or mid-engined Corvette, or V-6 version, or any of the other mythical Corvettes reported breathlessly elsewhere (and here, once – oops!).

The coppery Corvette Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Replica is dressed in Atomic Orange and will go on sale in the spring. GM promises 500 copies will be offered for sale. Fittingly, each one will be a convertible. Gold graphics and Z06 wheels are standard for the asking price of $66,995.


The Indy Pace 'Vette will show up in Chicago next to the Ron Fellows ALMS GT1 Champion Corvette Z06 (whew! Almost ran out of letters!), a special version in Arctic White with racing stripes and Ron Fellows’ autograph. It too goes on the sale in the spring, for $77,500. Only 300 copies will be sold in the U.S. of a total of 399 cars.
