The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will be serving as the Indianapolis 500 Pace Car, leading the field to green at the start of the 97th running of ‘The Greatest Spectacle in Racing,’ on Sunday, May 26, at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

This will mark the 12th time the Corvette has served as the Pace Car, starting in 1978.

“It is an honor to help inaugurate the all-new Corvette Stingray at the hallowed Brickyard and further the legacy between Chevrolet and the Indianapolis 500,” said Jim Campbell, GM vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “The 2014 Corvette Stingray’s performance was influenced by racing, making this prestigious assignment even more fitting.”

The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe for the Indy 500 is decked out in Laguna Blue Tintcoat with official Indianapolis 500 graphics on the doors. The only difference between it and the production ‘Vette are the track-mandated safety features and strobe lights. The p6.2 liter L1 V8 powertrain remains the same.
