Inside The Chevy Corvette’s Special History With The Indy 500
Later this month, the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible will take to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) as the official pace car for the 107th edition of the Indianapolis 500. By doing so, the new Z06 will join a long line of Corvette pace cars that have done duty for the Indy 500 through the decades in what has become fondly known as The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
“As we celebrate the rich history of the Corvette Pace Car at IMS, it’s amazing to see the evolution of these cars on and off the track,” said IMS President J. Douglas Boles. “The hardtop convertible on the 2023 Corvette Z06 is just another example of the Chevrolet innovation that translates from track to street.”
Much has been said about the 670-horsepower Z06 already, but this new pace car will look the part with its Red Mist Metallic exterior over a two-tone Jet Black and Sky Cool Gray interior with Torch Red accents.
Let’s take a look at the Corvette’s Indy 500 pace car history in more detail, though.
