For those sure-fire Corvette collectors out there, Chevrolet has unveiled the Corvette Stingray Coupe Premiere Edition, a limited-run model that will be limited to just 500 units. They will be identified by their VIN numbers, which will start at 300001, along with an individually-numbered plaque on the dashboard. The news comes as Corvette celebrates its 60th birthday.
The model doesn’t sport any powertrain upgrades, but there are multiple visual cues to separate the Stingray Premiere from the rest of the lineup. Based on the 3LT trim level, it features special logos on the center wheel caps and sill plates, a noticeable “stinger” stripe on the hood, and even Corvette-branded luggage designed by Thule.
In addition, the Corvette Stingray Premiere Edition is only available in Laguna Blue with a brown faux suede upholstery and interior trim, as well as the carbon-fiber trim décor package and an exposed carbon-fiber roof. The Z51 performance package will be standard, as will the performance exhaust system. Pricing hasn’t been officially announced for this special trim level, but it wouldn’t be out of line to anticipate something in the $70,000 range.
