Chevrolet is trading on the Corvette's racing connection with four new special-edition cars—and it's no coincidence that they're being revealed the same weekend as the 24 Hours of Daytona، where a C7.R race car will be a part of the IMSA competition. Chevy says that each of these special-edition Corvette Grand Sport Drivers Series models has a color scheme selected by one of the Corvette Racing team's drivers: Tommy Milner، Oliver Gavin، Jan Magnussen، and Antonio Garcia.
Each Drivers Edition Corvette will go on sale this spring، with an extra cost of $4995 over a Grand Sport 1LT or 2LT and $5995 extra over a 3LT model. (Before adding the Drivers Edition surcharge، the 2019 Grand Sport 1LT starts at $66،995، the 2LT at $71،450، and the 3LT at $76،740.) That sounds like a lot، but these colors، stripes، and other trim pieces would ordinarily cost extra on a standard Grand Sport model (some exterior colors cost $995 extra، for instance، while the Grand Sport's various stripes and bits of exterior trim can range between $500 and $950)، and the special-edition cars also get an interior plaque commemorating each driver. The basic mechanicals of the 10Best-winning Corvette Grand Sport، which include a 460-hp 6.2-liter V-8 and other track-focused bits of equipment، are left well enough alone.
This Elkhart Lake Blue Vette has silver stripes and red hash marks، combined with a black interior with red seat belts، black wheels، and red brake calipers.
Finished in Shadow Gray، this Corvette has a red-heavy trim package inside، with a full red leather interior. It also includes carbon-fiber-look mirrors.
Magnussen's Chevrolet has a white exterior with red and gray accents، along with a black and red interior، body-color mirrors، and red-accented wheels.
