The Chevrolet Corvette is marking a milestone this year- that milestone being its 70th anniversary! It's an achievement worth recognizing especially given that the Corvette, a cultural icon, is the longest running nameplate of any car on the road today.
70th Anniversary Edition
To celebrate the occasion, Chevrolet is introducing the 2023 Corvette 70th Anniversary Edition package for the Corvette Stingray and Corvette Z06.
“Passion for Corvette runs deep at Chevrolet and this anniversary is extra special because of the excitement and sales success we’ve achieved with the eighth generation of America’s iconic sportscar,” said Steve Majoros, vice president, Chevrolet marketing. “Even after 70 years, Corvette still makes hearts race and kids dream of the open road.”
70th Anniversary Edition Corvettes will come in one of two exterior colors exclusive 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 special edition will ride on 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.
Models will also come with:
- 70th Anniversary Edition exterior badging, including special Corvette crossflags
- Edge Red brake calipers
- 70th Anniversary Edition logo on seats, steering wheel and sill plates
- Rear bumper protector and trunk cover
- Custom luggage set with red stitching and 70th Anniversary Edition logo
70th Anniversary Edition Stingray coupes will also include an Edge Red engine cover.
All 2023 Corvettes, even 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.
Chevrolet says the 2023 Corvette also offers buyers more personalization and bespoke options, raising the number of choices to 14 available exterior colors and eight interior colors that allow for thousands of combinations.
The 70th Anniversary Edition package will be available when production starts later this year on 2023 Corvette Stingray 3LT and Z06 3LZ coupe and convertible models. The 2023 Corvette Z06 visualizer, live on Chevrolet's website, now includes the 70th Anniversary Edition package.
