What year 2010 or 2011? In either case they were not numbered from the factory other than VIN. The ones that were festival cars at the race had numbers but that's about it.

Edit: just saw your avitar and see you have the convertible.

Sorry, a bit off there...

They made exactly 294 coupes in 2010 and 500 2011 convertibles. 200 more convertibles

I used to own one of the coupes. Click on the link I provided above. A member on here had the list of VIN's and we hung out with the guy who designed these cars at the fest. Here's a shot of my car alongside the 2011 with some notable GM folks.

Thank you all this is just a bit confusing to me. I can't understand how they can build a special edition car and only 500 made and not even GM knows anything about this car. Thanks for all y'all help

Mr. Pete,

You can check my link below for the visual differences in the Festival vs. replica. Mine is #44 Festival.

Not real sure what you mean. GM knows everything about this car as does quite a few folks on Camaro 5.

Your original question was did they number them? The answer is they did not, however this was something that was considered and numbers were actually printed out but one reason for not using them was they didn't want folks all fighting over #1.

There were around 50 cars that went to Indy for the race and were driven by VIP's etc. These cars have a number attached as shown in Z11 Dan's link. But the overall lot of replica Pace Cars were not numbered from the factory. They came off the line with a VIN # mixed in with all the other Camaros at that time.

So the ones that you see in pictures with numbers were Festival Cars that did service at Indy.
