The Corvette was chosen to pace the Indy 500 for the third time
in 1995. 527 replica pace cars were produced with a two-tone purple and white paint scheme and wild ribbon striping.
Changes were few for 1995, mostly because a new generation Corvette
was in the works and most of the development resources were oriented towards that effort. Right: the front fender gills were
updated with a more speedy emphasis.
Larger brake rotors which were part of the Z07 adjustable suspension
package were on all 1995 'vettes. Since "run flat" tires effectively eliminated the need for a spare tire, buyers had the
option of deleting the spare, saving $100.00 along with the associated weight.
