With the hardtop edition of the Chevrolet (NYSE:GM) Corvette Stingray now being distributed accordingly to its awaiting dealers and buyers, it was only a matter of time before its roofless sibling began its own journey en route to showrooms. That journey has indeed begun, and to commemorate, Chevrolet has popped the proverbial champagne with a special edition model.
Some 550 customers will be able to spring for the exclusive Premiere Edition convertible, which is offered in Lime Rock Green with a tan top and will be loaded up with all the accouterments from the base 3LT Z51 Convertible with a few additional perks.
Included on these 550 models will be dealer-option five-spoke wheels (complete with Stingray-logo center caps), suede upholstery on the inside, carbon-fiber trim, and exclusive door sill plates. The Premiere Edition roadster will also arrive with optional extras such as a performance exhaust and Magnetic Selective Ride Control fitted as standard, as well as a full five-piece luggage set from Thule, valued at some $920.
