Chevrolet Reveals Limited-Run 2014 Corvette C7 Premiere Edition6
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.

B. F. Deal!
Years ago my parents bought a 1978 Eldorado Biarritz Classic, the two tone tan and dark brown one with only 1500 or so built. Never lived up to it’s supposed exclusivity. Big damn deal on this one too. Corvette’s still what it is though, a Corvette.
I was hoping something for something a little more dramatic besides trim and luggage , this should be about 90 grand in canada. show us the new Z06!!!
nothing says “tone deaf” like throwing in suitcases with a new generation of corvette..who is getting paid to come up with this crap at GM?
Quite disappointing to build hype for a special edition.
Hey it will drive some collectors and make more money for the dealers. If people are stupid enough to pay the price then more power to GM.
I think too many here underestimate how much people have paid for the several special decal package editions over the last 10 years as many will pay sticker or more for these cars thinking they will be instant collectable. They have never learned since the 78 pace cars that few of todays Vettes are instant collectable. The 90’s ZR1 included.
While todays ZR1 may become a classic the coming L88 may render it a second choice too.
If you want a future collectable Vette buy a ex Pratt and Miller race car. Even the old Vette stock racing series cars are showing good value since so many of them were used up. Can’t ever lose on a ex race car with crossed flags even the duds today are worth good money.
The Fitted Luggage reminds me of the Fitted Luggage that Pontiac Offered for the Fiero. I have a set and I could sell it for more than value of most Fiero’s I see on the road today.
I do approve of the color and the black stripe out of the hood vent.
Laguna Blue is amazing on this car.
