The 2022 Mid-Engine Corvette certainly provided consumers with plenty to be excited about.  To commemorate the C8.R race car's inaugural season, Chevrolet offered its consumers a special, limited-edition appearance package on the 2022 Corvette that was inspired by the IMSA GTLM championship-winning race cars. Only 1000 examples were built, and the package added $6595 to the car's sell price. 
While the redesign gave the Corvette a fresh look for the new model year, Chevrolet also recognized the importance of commemorating the car's quarter-century of production.  For the first time in the brand's history, two special-edition Corvettes were introduced for the 1978 model year: the Silver Anniversary Edition and the Indy Pace Car coupes. On March 15, 1977, the 500,000th Corvette rolled off the assembly line at Chevrolet's St. Louis manufacturing plant. 
Designed for the 2024 racing season to compete in the GT3 category, Corvette Z06 GT3.R will soon join a family of long-standing victors on the track. This track-only race car will be the first that Chevrolet offers to both pro and amateur teams. Although based on the design of the street-friendly Corvette Z06 and its 5.5L engine, the GT3.R won’t be street legal. The track-only race car will be modified with racing-specific equipment and will comply with FIA regulations.
