Chevy Introduces Indy 500 Pace Car Replica Corvette Convertible

A 2007 Chevrolet Corvette convertible will pace the 91st running of the Indianapolis 500 on May 27, 2007.  Since it was selected as the Official Pace Car, Chevrolet will supply several identically prepared and uniquely trimmed Corvette convertibles – in new Atomic Orange paint with distinctive gold ribbon graphics – that will serve in the official pace duties of the race, as well as supporting activities.

All of the pace car replicas are equipped with the Corvette’s standard LS2 small-block V-8 and Z51 performance package.  A six-speed manual transmission is standard, with the six-speed paddle-shift automatic optional.  The navigation system with Bose audio, as well as OnStar, is standard.   Pricing for the pace car replica convertible is $66,995 MSRP, including destination.  The paddle-shift six-speed automatic is the only option, which brings the price to $68,245.

The five hundred production replicas of those official Corvette convertibles will be offered for sale to the public beginning this spring.

The distinguishing features of the pace car replica convertibles include:

• Atomic Orange exterior color, including door handles
• Indianapolis 500 exterior graphics – including gold ribbon graphics that flow outward from the front fender vents and “ Indianapolis 500” door logos
• Special Indianapolis 500 fender badges
• Z06 rear spoiler
• New aluminum “split-spoke” wheels in Sterling Silver
• Ebony seats with embroidered Indianapolis 500 logos
• Interior trim plate and pods painted Atomic Orange
Atomic Orange engine covers

This year marks the ninth time Corvette has served as the Official Pace Car of the Indianapolis 500. The previous years were 1978, 1986, 1995, 1998, 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006. It also is a record fourth consecutive turn for the Corvette, as well as a record 18th time for a Chevrolet, to be selected as the pace car.
