While temperatures hovered in the single digits outside the Chicago Auto Show, inside things were heating up over at the Chevrolet display as the two new special edition Corvettes were unveiled to members of the media. Corvette Racing’s Ron Fellows was on hand to introduce his signature ALMS GT1 Championship Corvette Z06. Fellows, who owns a silver Z06, becomes the first individual in Corvette’s 54 year history to have his name on a special edition Corvette. 399 of the Artic White Corvettes are planned. Sharing the stage with the RFALMSGT1C Corvette Z06 was the Corvette that will be pacing the Indianapolis 500 on May 27th this year. It’s the first time since 1998 and only the 5th time that a replica will be produced for the public. You better get in line fast if you want one. Only 500 are planned.
