INDIANAPOLIS — The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will serve as the Indianapolis 500 Pace Car, marking a record 12th time that the Corvette has had that honor.

The Corvette Stingray Pace Car will feature a Laguna Blue Tintcoat with official Indianapolis 500 graphics on the doors.

The Corvette Stingray Pace Car differs from production models with only track-mandated safety features and strobe lights, said General Motors. It also is equipped with the Z51 package. GM says the pace car required no powertrain upgrades.

"It is an honor to help inaugurate the Corvette Stingray at the hallowed Brickyard and further the legacy between Chevrolet and the Indianapolis 500," said Jim Campbell, GM vice president of performance vehicles and motorsports. "The 2014 Corvette Stingray's performance was influenced by racing, making this prestigious assignment even more fitting."

The Corvette Stingray hogged the spotlight at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. It goes on sale this fall with a convertible version coming a few months later.

The Indy 500 is set for May 26.

Edmunds says: A natural choice for the all-American race.
