2023 Chevrolet Corvette Quick Spin: Is the 70th Anniversary Edition Worth It?

What can you get for celebrating 70 years of Vettes?

For starters, the 70th Anniversary Edition package is available for the top 3LT and 3LZ trims of the Corvette Stingray and Corvette Z06,

respectively, which adds a premium (and service) on top of the $5,995 package itself.

In the Stingray, the 3LT adds a luxurious interior and upgraded GT2 seats, while the 3LZ Z06 adds those features along with carbon fiber and microfiber handlebars.

Starting price for the 70th Anniversary Edition Corvette Stingray is $83,840 for the coupe and $90,840 for the convertible (all prices include destination).

A 70th Anniversary Edition 3LZ Z06 coupe will set you back $129,140 including the $2,600 gas tax, while the convertible tops out at $136,140 – considering the requirements, at least; Hard to find a Corvette of any kind at MSRP.


While the Stingray and Z06 are great deals when it comes to performance, they don’t fall into the bargain price range, and the 70th Anniversary Edition’s $5,995 is no small change.

As for what the package includes, it paints the car in one of two unique colors: White Pearl Metallic Tri-Coat or Carbon Flash Metallic.

For an additional $995, an optional racing stripe in Satin Gray (with white trim) or Satin Black (with black trim) adds a subtle style touch.

This package adds special wheels, carbon side mirrors, red brake calipers, and special exterior badging.


Stingray coupes also get a distinctive red engine cover (a convertible hides the rear-mounted engine under the power-folding hardtop).

I like the exterior of the C8 Corvette and think the wheels included in the 70th Anniversary Edition are very cool – I would choose them as a stand-alone option if I were customizing my own Corvette.

Maybe I’ll skip the soft stripes, but go without them as I’m looking for something in a special color.

Inside, the hood is a special two-tone ceramic with red stripes and red seat belts, there is a suede version for the seats and steering wheel, and there are also many 70th anniversary logos.

The interior is beautiful and very comfortable, although I am afraid that the light-colored leather will fade quickly.

I don’t see anything that comes with the 70th Anniversary Edition package, although I can’t blame Chevrolet for not including a special cargo cover and matching accessories, as it would be easy to lose. or put it as a car. travel from reporter to reporter.

Luggage is also a nice touch, reminiscent of high-end sedans, although the Corvette’s front and rear storage are enough to hold three suitcases and a backpack when I’m with a colleague.
