Corvette celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2023. It is the longest-running nameplate in the industry and has remained an attainable icon, while pushing the boundaries of technology, performance and style. Chevrolet marks this milestone with the 70th Anniversary Special Edition.
The 70th Anniversary Edition Corvettes are unique, even amongst other 2023 Corvettes, in the following ways: First, the Anniversary Edition cars will be offered in two exclusive color packages – an all-new White Pearl Metallic Tri-coat or a Carbon Flash Metallic. An optional stripe kit will also be offered in complimenting colors – Satin Gray on the Pearl White Metallic, and Black on the Carbon Flash Metallic. The cars will also be fitted with unique-and-distinct wheels with commemorative wheel center caps.
The Z06 models have their own unique wheel design but they all come with a dark finish and Edge Red stripe. Braking power will come from specially painted Edge Red brake calipers. Of course, the exterior will also be adorned with custom “70th Anniversary Edition” badging, including a special Corvette cross flags emblem on the front and rear fascias. Finally, each 70th Anniversary Edition Stingray coupe will also include an Edge Red engine cover.
Moving to the car’s interior, the cockpit will be fitted with two-tine Ceramic Leather GT2 or Competition Sport seats. The interior will also be accented with red stitching throughout, as well as red seatbelts, sueded microfiber seat inserts, and a sueded microfiber steering wheel. Both the driver and passenger seats will include special “70th Anniversary Edition” logos on the seats, steering wheel, and sill plates. Custom luggage will also be included with red stitching and the 70th Anniversary Edition logo.
Our example offered here is finished in White Pearl Metallic over Ceramic White leather upholstery. Thanks to the 70th Anniversary Special Edition package, this Corvette comes with a boatload of features that includes specifies 20″ and 21″ forged aluminum wheels, a carbon fiber and sueded microfiber-wrapped steering wheel, branded luggage, Carbon Flash-painted nacelles and mirrors, full-length Satin Matrix Gray stripes, red brake calipers and seat belts, a power-retractable hardtop, Magnetic Ride Control, a front-axle lift system, and Z06 performance brakes in addition to an 8″ touchscreen, a Bose sound system, front and rear cameras, and heated and ventilated GT2 bucket seats.

The LT6 features an all-new, lightweight, flat-plane crankshaft designed to rev the engine to a staggering 8,600 rpm.
