Chevrolet announced that the 2023 model year Corvette Stingray and Corvette Z06 will celebrate the 70th anniversary of Corvette with a special 70th Anniversary Edition package.
“The 70th Anniversary Edition celebrates our rich history and builds on the excitement we’ve achieved with the mid-engine Corvette,” said Michael MacPhee, brand director, Chevrolet Canada. “After 70 years, this iconic nameplate proves again, Corvette isn’t just a car. It is the cornerstone of automotive innovation, an instantly recognizable icon of driving performance and freedom, and inspiring Canadian enthusiasts to dream of the open road.”
The 70th Anniversary Edition Corvettes will stand out in one of two exterior colours unique to this package – an all-new White Pearl Metallic Tri-coat or Carbon Flash Metallic. Optional stripes are available in complementing colours – Satin Gray with the White Pearl Metallic Tri-coat and Satin Black with the Carbon Flash Metallic.
The 70th Anniversary Edition Corvettes feature distinct wheels with commemorative wheel centre caps. While Stingray and Z06 each have separate wheel designs, the wheels share a similar dark finish and Edge Red stripe.
The 70th Anniversary Edition package will be available when production starts later this year on 2023 Corvette Stingray 3LT and Z06 3LZ coupe and convertible models. The 2023 Corvette Z06 visualizer, live on Chevrolet.ca, will be updated to include the 70th Anniversary Edition package.
All 2023 Corvettes, including those not equipped with the 70th Anniversary Edition package, will feature a commemorative 70th anniversary interior plaque located on the centre speaker grille and a graphic imprinted on the lower rear window.
