The event is now in its 30th year and in celebration of the milestone Chevrolet has decided to roll out a very special Corvette concept car for the 2011 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show taking place next week in Las Vegas.
The one-of-a-kind ‘Vette has been dubbed the “Corvette Carlisle Blue Grand Sport Concept” and it introduces a new ‘Carlisle Blue’ exterior paint option that will hopefully be offered across the range. It also gets silver Torque 2 wheels and racing stripes to really set it apart.
In terms of performance modifications, there's a dual-mode exhaust system, Magnetic Ride suspension control, six-piston brake calipers, Goodyear tires, and a LS3 V-8 fitted with a dry sump oil system.
Inside, designers have added titanium colored leather with contrasting blue stitching, a nine-speaker Bose stereo, and a custom pedal package.
If you’re interested in attending next year’s Corvettes at Carlisle meet, or even participating, online registration for the event has now opened.
