Earlier this week GM gave Corvette owners and enthusiasts alike much to look forward to following the official reveal of a special 70th Anniversary package coming to the 2023 C8 Corvette. The package commemorates 7 decades of an American Classic that has stolen the hearts of people around the globe and will be available as an optional purchase with all Corvette models, including the Stingray and Z06.
The first upgrade comes in the form of the famous Corvette crossflags emblem that has been updated to include a nod to the Corvette's 70th Anniversary (as seen above). This badge will adorn all 2023 models regardless of package or car, and will be utilized on the vehicle in conjunction with a commemorative 70th Anniversary logo that will be included on the lower rear window.
The special edition 70th Anniversary package's exterior details include new colors White Pearl Metallic Tri-Coat and Carbon Flash Metallic, with optional gray and black racing stripes. These light and dark tones are sure to make a splash, and will be accented through classic red vehicle trim and brake calipers. Stingray owners can expect to find red engine covers included in their variation of the package. All new wheels will feature a sleek design including commemorative center caps and a red accenting stripe. Last but not least, rear bumper protectors and trunk covers will also be included with the package.
With regard to the interior, owners will be given the option of Ceramic Leather GT2, or Competition sport seats complete with red stitching and complimentary red seatbelts. A commemorative 70th Anniversary plaque adorns the center speaker grille on all models and serves as a powerful reminder of the Corvette legacy. As an added bonus, the package also features a limited-edition custom luggage set featuring red stitching and the 70th Anniversary badge logo making it the perfect accessory for the Corvette owner who is always on the go!
Though pricing is not yet available on the 70th Anniversary Package, the 2023 C8 is expected to hit the showroom floor in late 2022. If the 70th Anniversary package isn’t quite in your price range, have no fear, all 2023 Corvette models will commemorate the historic anniversary with a 70th Anniversary badge and interior plaque.
You can catch a first glimpse at the all-new 2023 Corvette when the first model off the production line rolls across the auction block at Barrett Jackson’s collector car auction from Scottsdale, Arizona January 29th on the History Channel.
