“Corvette is one of the most storied names in Chevrolet and sports car history, with a heritage few can match,” said Paul Edwards, US vice president Chevrolet Marketing. “The new Carbon 65 Edition honours that legacy, while offering customers another unique, special-edition model that personalises the ownership experience.”

The first Corvette rolled out of the Chevy factory on June 30, 1953, in Flint, Michigan. Only 300 were built that year, each of them Polo White with a red interior.
