An impressive collection of classic Corvette concept cars will be on display during the Lime Rock Park Historic Festival in Connecticut this coming Labor Day weekend.
The vintage car festival will mark the first time that these classic Corvette concept vehicles will be displayed in public together. The collection will include the following iconic Corvette show cars:
- 1956 Corvette SR-2
- 1957 Corvette SS (XP-84)
- 1959 Corvette Sting Ray Racer (XP-87)
- 1961 Corvette Mako Shark
- CERV I
- CERV II
- 1969 Corvette Manta-Ray
- 1968 Astro II (XP880)
- 1972 Reynolds Aluminum Corvette
- 1986 Corvette Indy
- 1990 CERV III
- 1992 Stingray III
- 2009 Corvette Sting Ray Concept
Phil Zak, Executive Design Director of Global Chevrolet, said now is the appropriate time to display these twelve concept vehicles together, as the current C8 Corvette is the ultimate culmination of years of tedious design and engineering work within GM.
“Through now eight generations, Corvette has been a leader in design and engineering,” Zak said. “This extensive display of Corvette history will highlight the wide variety of ideas and innovations leading up the current mid-engine C8.”
The Lime Rock Park Historic Festival will be held between September 1st and September 5th, 2022 and will play host to multiple vintage races for a wide variety of classes. The Lime Rock Concours and Gathering of the Marques display will also attract roughly 1,000 privately-owned classics throughout the holiday weekend, which will be situated in the infield and other parts of the lush Lime Rock park campus.
“The 40th edition of the Lime Rock Historic Festival once again brings together an exciting and diverse field of historic racing machines for a Labor Day Weekend celebration of speed, sound and beauty with classes that range from pre-war open-wheel cars to the sports and formula cars of the postwar era,” show organizers said.
