2023 Chevrolet Corvette to get special trim package for 70th Anniversary
2023 marks the 70th anniversary of Corvette, the longest running nameplate on the road today. For eight generations, the Corvette has kept evolving, none more so than the current model, which got a mid-engine for the first time, pushing the boundaries of performance. The powerful ZO6 is also set to be available in the US this summer – perfect timing to celebrate 70 years of the Corvette.
The 2023 model year Corvette Stingray and Corvette Z06 will celebrate this milestone with a special 70th Anniversary Edition package.
70th Anniversary Edition Corvettes will be available in one of two exterior colors unique to this package – an all-new White Pearl Metallic Tri-coat or Carbon Flash Metallic. Optional stripes are available in complementing colors – Satin Gray with the White Pearl Metallic Tri-coat and Satin Black with the Carbon Flash Metallic.
The 70th Anniversary Edition Corvettes feature distinct wheels with commemorative wheel center caps. While Stingray and Z06 each have separate wheel designs, the wheels share a similar dark finish and Edge Red stripe.
Inside the cockpit, drivers will find two-tone Ceramic Leather GT2 or Competition Sport seats, red stitching throughout, red seatbelts, and sueded microfiber seat inserts and steering wheel.
Additional content includes 70th Anniversary Edition exterior badging, including special Corvette crossflags, red brake calipers, 70th Anniversary Edition logo on seats, steering wheel and sill plates, rear bumper protector and trunk cover and custom luggage set with red stitching and 70th Anniversary Edition logo.
70th Anniversary Edition Stingray coupes will also include an “Edge Red” engine cover.
The 70th Anniversary Edition package will be available when production starts later this year on the 2023 Corvette Stingray 3LT and Z06 3LZ coupe and convertible models. The 2023 Corvette Z06 visualizer, live on Chevrolet.com, now includes the 70th Anniversary Edition package.
All 2023 Corvettes, including those not equipped with the 70th Anniversary Edition package, will feature a commemorative 70th anniversary interior plaque located on the center speaker grille and a graphic imprinted on the lower rear window.
We should be getting the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other parts of the region towards the end of the year or early next year.
