2008 Chevrolet Corvette Indy 500 Pace Car Edition
#346 OF 500 PACE CAR REPLICAS, LS3, 426 RWHP, 3LT, 2-OWNER, FUTURE COLLECTIBLE
In 2008, Chevrolet's flagship Corvette was chosen as the pace car for the annual Indy 500 for a record 12th time. To commemorate this achievement, Chevrolet produced a very limited 500 models that were pace car replicas. This option brought the Z51 handling package, Z06 style spoiler, dual mode exhaust, forged chrome wheels, Indy 500 seat embroidery and each car was numbered and signed by Emerson Fittipaldi.
This beautiful example still bears the authentic autograph of Emerson Fittipaldi, and is #346 of only 500 units produced. However, it is one of ONLY 77 COUPES produced with the 6 speed manual transmission, making this car a VERY RARE SPECIMEN! Quick observers will obviously see the bright green pace car decal has been removed from the vehicle to create a slick black paint scheme with green accents.
Loaded with virtually every option, this two-owner LT3 Corvette was originally sold new in Danbury, Connecticut before transferring ownership to the current owner in Charlotte, North Carolina.
This Corvette comes equipped with a 6.2L LS3 V8 that has small additions that include a ported throttle body, haltech cold air induction, oil catch can, Hotchkis sway bars, pfadt brushed stainless steel headers, 3 inch pipes with high flow cats that still work the dual mode exhaust, and finally a custom dyno tune by PCM of Mooresville, NC that shows today the car makes 426 rear wheel horsepower.
The sale includes the original window sticker, receipts that document the mileage and a removable clear top that was a $750 factory option.
It's not too often that you find a modern collectible, yet here it sits. Don't miss your chance to own this beauty!
