In my book Corvette Special Editions, we defined the term as a car that was equipped with special or limited options as offered by Chevrolet. These two 2019 Corvettes we found for sale on the secondary market fit the criteria of being a Special Edition Corvette except they were never offered for sale new by Chevrolet dealers as equipped.
Does that make them less special? What if I told you that both of these limited production Corvettes come with their own provenance and documentation that any collector would appreciate?
For the Corvette owner that likes having a unique version of America’s favorite sports car, you couldn’t go wrong with either of these choices.
2019 Corvette Z06 – Hertz 100th Anniversary
First up is the Hertz 100th Anniversary Corvette Z06s. Last year the rental company added 100 Yellow/Black Corvette Z06s to its rental fleet. These Corvettes are now being offered for sale by Hertz directly through their Hertz Car Sales locations.
The Hertz Corvette Z06s are outfitted in Corvette Racing Yellow with twin-black racing stripes. They come equipped with the 3LZ trim package and the Z07 Performance Package. Options included the eight-speed automatic transmissions, black aluminum wheels, yellow brake calipers, Competition Sport seats, and custom Hertz interior badging, including a personalized Hertz centennial anniversary plaque that displays the model number of the vehicle.
2019 Corvette Stingray Convertible – Indy 500 Festival Car
Our second unofficial Special Edition Corvette that is now being offered for sale will be much more familiar to people. In addition to the four Indy 500 Corvette Pace Cars produced for this year’s race, there were another 33-48* Corvette Stingray Convertibles produced as Indy 500 Festival Cars. These are cars are driven and shared throughout the month of May in Indianapolis to help build excitement leading up to the race.
*We have seen official counts of the car listed at 33 but we have also seen 48 identical Stingray Convertibles on the track in promotion photos.
Each of these Corvette Stingray Indy 500 Festival Cars is produced in Long Beach Red Metallic with Black interiors and a Black top and include the Indy 500 graphics package.
The Corvettes comes with a 2LT trim package with an 8-speed automatic transmission and features a dual silver racing stripe, carbon flash badge package, Carbon Flash Z51 spoiler, and Stingray center caps.
Each of the Indy 500 Festival Corvettes was numbered and come with official Indianapolis Motor Speedway documentation.
Our friend Corvette Conti has the #18 Festival Corvette for sale. The MSRP was originally $71,170 and it’s now priced at $59,589 which includes the $3,000 loyalty bonus. Contact Rick directly to find out more about this special Corvette Stingray Convertible.
