This may be the ultimate road trip car, it even comes with luggage.
Chevrolet has announced that it is building a limited run of 500 Premiere Edition Corvette Stingrays to kick off production of the all-new seventh generation ‘Vette.
Each car is painted Laguna Blue and fully loaded with the Z51 performance package, magnetic ride control suspension, 460 hp V8, dual-mode sport exhaust, exposed carbon fiber removable roof panel and several unique Premiere Edition touches including Brownstone sueded microfiber upholstery, a black hood stripe, Stingray logos on the wheel caps and sill plates, and a numbered plaque on the dashboard certifying the car’s provenance.
A five-piece Corvette branded Thule luggage set rounds out the package. Good thing the liftback Corvette is one of the few supercars in the world that can carry that kind of baggage.
Pricing has not been announced, but a standard Stingray with all of the options boxes checked costs $73,360.
If you’re interested, you’d better start hustling. All off the cars have already been allocated to Chevy’s top Corvette dealers. One of them is NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick, who also bought the rights to the first new Corvette off the line for $1,050,000 at a charity auction in January, and he can order it anyway he pleases.
For that kind of money, we’d hope so.
