Great news for Indy 500 Corvette pace car fans. Autoweek is claiming that the 2014 Corvette Stingray will be the pace car for the Greatest Spectacle in Racing and they say they have the spy photos to prove it. The photos show a specially-equipped Laguna Blue 2014 Corvette Stingray with safety lights testing at the Milford Proving Grounds.
The Corvette Stingray looks stock, but upon closer examination you will see two strobe lights mounted in the front grille while a rear-facing light bar is mounted inside the Coupe with the lights visible through the rear hatch window. Autoweek also claims the Stingray’s front LED headlights were seen flashing a random safety pattern as well.
The Laguna Blue Stingray is sans livery but we do notice the area right above the side rocker panels have been covered with camouflage, perhaps hiding the first hints of the “Official Pace Car” graphics package that is yet to come.
There has been no official announcement yet regarding the official pace car at Indianapolis, but the Laguna Blue Corvette Stingray makes the perfect compliment to the special edition blue Camaro Hot Wheels models that are serving as the festival cars and will carry drivers in the parade.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray will be the 12th Corvette to have the honor of Pacing the 500. Since 2000, Corvette has been the official pace car seven times. Last year’s Indy 500 Pace Car was the Arctic White Corvette ZR1 with the 60th Anniversary Package.
The Indianapolis 500 starts at High Noon on Sunday, May 26th and will be televised on ABC.
