Former Corvette Racing Driver and all-around Mr. Nice Guy Ron Fellows was inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame for his contributions to the hobby. Ron and his family were at the National Corvette Museum’s 17th Annual Labor Day celebration last weekend for the induction ceremony and little did he know that a special Corvette was waiting for him as well.
Corvette Team members Harlan Charles and Kirk Bennion presented Ron with this stunning 2012 Corvette Z06. The Corvette is called the SEMA/Spring Mountain Special Edition and we can assume that it will be one of the featured vehicles at the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain Raceway outside of Las Vegas.
The Z06 features many of the new 2012 options including the B92 carbon fiber hood and the new full body racing stripes. Borrowed from the Centennial Edition are the black wheels with the red stripe and the seats with the special “100 Years” embroidery.
We particulary liked the custom Grand Sport hash marks that are reminiscient of the 2007 Ron Fellows Z06 which had the Canadian Maple Leaf. The Carbon graphic was reworked to show the Number 3 (Ron drove the #3 Corvette for Corvette Racing) along with “Hall of Fame” and on the rear, you’ll find graphics from Mosport Raceway (Ron is now co-owner of the famous Canadian track) and the Ron Fellows Performance driving school.
CorvetteBlogger gives a special thanks for Corvette Forum member Talon90 and NCM Insurance Ageny’s Adam Boca for the video and photos of the unveiling.
