Yeah, it was the first of 50 Indy Parade cars (or whatever they're called) and there will be 500 total Indy Pace Car replicas

Do the 50 parade cars count towards the 500?

And do they all come with yellow tail lights?

The idea all along was to do last years car (orange coupe) and this years car as a set, a kinda his and hers deal.

We all really liked the idea of having the stripes come off of the hood and onto the IP (something never done before on a production car), to make this work, they needed to move in board from the expected historic Camaro location (The Driver side stripe is cropped as it is by the gauges).....plus we were able to fit the mail slot into the entire stripe width, verse having it half in/half out.....like what happens when u extend the rally stripes on a V8. Many iterations were shown to management, it came down to what u see here today, and just having the same stripe start from the upper fascia and end at the deck lid cut line. In the end, leadership felt that our Camaro's design was so strong, that there was no reason to tip toe around Mustang & Charger......plus many people were already making their own versions of the stock Rally stripes in orange and putting them on white coupes.

After the Auction today....only 499 left.......

Yep... that was it... as long as you could find a dealer without the dreaded market adjustment..

The car is badass. However for that rare model they should have gone with painted stripes and close all the gaps in the stripes like on this photoshop pic I did...

Pics from Barrett-Jackson

Taken at GM display before the 'vert was auctioned. iPhone not best quality.
They had some cool orange stripe ball caps on the auction block. It was a sweet looking machine no matter what anybody says I'd take one in a heartbeat

Anybody know what color the top is on these pace cars. I assume black (unless they produced special edition white tops for these). Also, wondering if any of the 500 produced will be offered with a manual trans? Any info on pricing for these yet?

The 2011 Pace Car has Inferno Orange Stripes, not Hugger Orange and not Red.

I was there all last week, both pace cars looked amazing side by side, I asked someone there about the color of the top they didn't know, maybe being limited to 500 they will have white tops

So what color are the tops on these cars? Hopefully we will all be pleasantly surprised and get a white top. If the people at GM were so concerned with Heritage and History, there would be no other color for a top on this Pace Car. If GM does what it Historically does, they will have an excuse as to why a White top could not be used. What it comes down to is using a standard production car that stripes and a couple other things can be added to to make it special. If a white top was not offered on a regular production car, then it will probably not be on this car.

How can the Dash stripes determine the design of the exterior stripes if these are the exact same stripes as used on last years Pace Car, and the Dash stripes were dropped from production?

I have a 2010 Pace Car Festival Car, and I would like to try and get a 2011 to go with it. I am just a little disappointed that GM did not do something more for these special cars like a one off run of wheels, or even the 21" Accessory Wheels to make it truly special and more than just decals and badges. A small company like SLP can even pull off low production runs of specialty Cars and parts and still make a quality product and one that is desired because it is DIFFERENT than all the other production Camaros out there.

It's pretty cool that you have one of last years Indy coupes, and may consider completing the "Set". If you happened to see my post from last year, you would know how disappointed we were that the IP stripes didn't make it into production. They were being developed for production all along the way, but because of the late call to make replicas in 2010 at all........we just ran out of time at the very last minute. Execution on a detail like this had to be perfect, the following year has allowed us the time to get them right for the convertible, where they will be an even bigger impact with the top down. Maybe if enough Coupe owners show interest, we can make orange with white striped IP inserts available to you guys to retro fit.......
As far as 21" wheels, if u purchase a set of the Synergy Series wheels (the silver w/red stripe)....your car would look exactly like the first sketch I did.......which would be very cool. The red stripe should look OK, since the Inferno Orange stripes have so much color flop.......in some lighting conditions they almost look red....the 21" wheels & tires were not on last years car (which would only hurt the
"look" of a SET) and are expensive, thus to keep the price on the Indy car down, we didn't include them.(see $$$ of Neiman Markus convertible)
We do have other Indy specific details (beside the IP stripes) on this low production vehicle that just haven't been photographed by anyone yet. The Debossed INDY 500 logos in the headrest are very tastefully done, as well as the specific INDY 500 sill plates. Wish I could tell you something more on the convertible top color, but u pretty much have that figured out already. If if makes u feel any better, the white top was discussed many times.
We appreciate everyones passion for Camaro, and enjoy reading the vast array of opinions on sites like this.
