Commemorating one of the most recognizable Indianapolis 500 pace cars, the Corvette 30th Anniversary Pace Car features a black exterior with silver graphics that honors the 1978 model – the production replicas of which became instant collectibles and continue to stand as an iconic symbol of Corvette’s heritage at the front of the Indy field.

In addition to the exterior color scheme, the anniversary models are equipped with a special, two-tone titanium-color interior, with the Indianapolis 500 logo embroidered on the seats. Coupe and convertible models are available. Each replica will be personally signed and numbered by Emerson Fittipaldi.

Additional features include:
  • Choice of six-speed manual or six-speed paddle-shift automatic transmissions
  • LS3 small block V8 with 436 hp
  • New-for-2008 forged chrome five-spoke aluminum wheels
  • Corvette Z06 rear spoiler
