Last year the 104 legendary races took place Indianapolis 500. Due to COVID-19 not until August 23, but it doesn't matter. The racing cars were led by a red 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which was brand new at the time R Package the official pace car was (we reported). And now for the 105th round of the Indy 500, a C8 will once again be the official one Pace car of the race that has been held since May 30, 1911. Only this time is the roof optional. Because this time the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will be presented as a hardtop convertible as the official pace car for the 2021 race. The spectacle will take place on Sunday, May 30th. The Pace-Car Vette is painted in Arctic White and comes with yellow and black details in the typical Indy-Pace-Car style, which has remained the same since 1978. And this time open temptation is the first vehicle since a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro that will lead the field without a roof.

And it is the 32nd time that it has been a Chevrolet vehicle and 18 times it has been a Corvette. From the general color scheme to the special stickers (sblack and yellow racing stripes across the body, Indy 500 logo on the sides, etc.) up to the skillful Integration of the safety lights in the so-called "Nacelles" (these are the two humps on the hardtop cover) the hardtop convertible is a real eye-catcher. And of course the built-in parts also play a large part in this Z51 Performance Pack, the optional 5VM Aero Kit and the High wing rear spoiler.
