Amid the pandemic, Chevrolet still managed a stellar competitive season with the Corvette C8 in IMSA GTLM action, amassing six overall wins and seven pole positions en route to winning the manufacturer’s, driver’s and team titles in their class all during the same season. The GTLM class performs on the Belle Isle street circuit along the Detroit riverfront this weekend, which is where Chevrolet chose to announced a limited run of the mid-engine Corvettes that celebrates its 2020 championship sweep. Officially, the resulting car – left-hand-drive only – is known as the Corvette Stingray Championship Edition.
Set to reach customers in late summer, the Championship Edition is limited to 1,000 units, as rolled out prior to the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix by IMSA drivers Jordan Taylor, Antonio Garcia, Nick Tandy and Tommy Milner. The package combines a high carbon-hue rear wing, yellow brake calipers, carbon-theme side mirrors and black Trident wheels. The yellow and gray theme continues inside, with a dash plaque and available sport seats. MSRP for the option package is $6,595 over the price for a C8 equipped with the Z51 performance package.
