Ron Fellows has a long, distinguished racing career, including driving on the championship Corvette Racing C5.R and C6.R teams, and that resume helped earn him an induction to the National Corvette Museum’s Hall of Fame this year.
In honor of that achievement Chevrolet has rolled out this Torch Red concept car based on the latest 2012 Corvette, which it will be presenting at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas this week.
You may recall that the concept was first unveiled
at the National Corvette Museum over Labor Day weekend, but we only now have all the details concerning some of its finicky modifications.
The Fellows’ tribute piece is based around the Corvette Z06 and comes complete with magnetic ride control adaptive suspension, a CFZ carbon fiber package consisting of a new splitter, rocker moldings and hood, blacked out headlights and mirrors, red brake calipers, and a number of racing-style graphics that honor both Fellows and his Spring Mountain Driving School.
Inside, the special Corvette gets a black interior with red stitching used on most of the leather surfaces, and suede-trim used on the steering wheel, shift knob, parking brake handle and armrests. There's also a Corvette Racing pedal package.
