To mark the U.S. sales debut of the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible, Chevrolet has launched a limited series called Premiere Edition. Production will be limited to 550 units, all in an identical configuration: top-of-the-line 3LT models with Lime Rock Green exterior paint and Brownstone suede interior.
The Convertible Premiere Edition also features suede-wrapped interior trim, carbon fiber accents, variable tuned performance exhaust system, Z51 Performance Package and Magnetic Selective Ride Control.
Other standard features are the wheels with “Stingray”-logo center caps, “Stingray”-logo interior sill plates and a five-piece set of Corvette-branded luggage from Thule – all from the Corvette Accessories catalog.
Each of the 550 units will have a unique VIN (vehicle identification number) sequence and unique dash plaques to mark their limited-run status.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray Premiere Edition Convertible will cost $77,450 (€57,142), including destination and delivery fees. Deliveries begin in early 2014.
If that’s too expensive, Chevrolet has also released a list of nine other Corvette gifts for the holiday season, starting from a $12 Corvette Stingray Rollerball Pen and ending with a $5,000 Corvette Heritage Neon Sign.
Other suggested gifts are a Monopoly Empire Game ($20) featuring a 2014 Corvette Stingray game piece to travel around the board, a 1:18 2014 Corvette Stingray ($38.50), a book about the seventh-generation Corvette ($40), Fisher Price Power Wheels Corvette ($275), a Corvette watch ($775) and Corvette Stingray Luggage ($910).
