One-Of-A-Kind VIN 1 Carbon Edition Unveiled
Attendees at the C5/C6 Bash got an extra special treat today... the first unveiling of a true one-of-a-kind car. The car, VIN 1, is the ONLY white 2011 Z06 Carbon edition to be produced and was designed with graphics to match the original 1960 Corvette that won its class 50 years ago at the Le Mans race in France. The car plays off the 1960s racer, but in a modern way.
Features of the car include the new 2011 Z07 package with ceramic brakes, Michelin tires, larger wheels, carbon fiber package with splitter and cyber gray mirrors and headlamps.
The car will venture to California for the ALMS Laguna Seca race on Saturday, May 22.

It's Official! Corvette is Kentucky's State Sports Car!
Kentucky can now add one more item to its list of state “symbols”… the Corvette. April 26, 2010 Governor Steve Beshear signed House Bill 104 - an act designating the Corvette as the official state sports car of Kentucky.
“Since 1953, the Corvette has been considered America’s sports car. As home to the Corvette plant in Bowling Green, Kentuckians have long considered the Corvette to be Kentucky’s sports car and a great symbol of Kentucky pride and craftsmanship. House Bill 104, which was passed during the 2010 General Assembly, now makes that designation official. It was with great pleasure that I signed HB 104 into law,” said Governor Beshear.
