Im not generally a big fan of the orange stripes, but wow- it works with this package, even the interior accents look killer! Good job GM!

The grill is just the standard heritage grill painted. It has been available for a long time.

I must admit - I got a lump in my throat and my eyes got real watery....(they leak a lot...)

I mean - the concept was still in clay - and this picture was such a vision of what everyone wished for........

.........and with tonight's announcement - it becomes reality......


You should be very proud. You have done incredible work and thank you for going against the stupid idea that full stripes are only for Mustangs.

The pictures whether Photoshopped or real, are probably a pre production prototype. If you read the press release it states..... "The pace car, along with the matching festival cars, features a Summit White exterior accented
with orange stripes and door graphics. The interior is trimmed in orange leather, including front
seat headrests embossed with the Indy 500 logo
."

There is not sign of any logos on the headrests on this car....... There will probably be another badge somewhere else like the 2010 had on the front fenders as well.

Didn't I read somewhere where Chevy worked a way to place the antenna in the spoiler? Maybe I'm dreaming.

Ah, gotcha. You wouldn't be able to see the fin if it were there or not in that image. The trunk dips down, and that angle deceives the Camera.

+1, that's right. The sharkfin is for receiving OnStar and XM radio.
