The first green Corvette in over a decade appeared at a special Vette event over the weekend.
A production green Corvette hasn’t been made since Chevrolet offered Dark Bowling Green Metallic (named after the factory where they're made) for the 2001 C5. So fans of the color were thrilled to discover that Lime Rock Green was to be one of the seven colors offered with the new Stingray. Over the weekend GM brought a model coated in the new hue, that’s clearly inspired by the British Racing Green of the 1960s, to the Lone Star Classic Corvette event, held near the Texas Motor Speedway.
NCM Insurance Agency, specializing in collector car insurance for Corvettes, was on hand to photograph the Lime Rock Green C7, which came equipped with the Z51 package along with a 3LT Brownstone interior and chrome alloys.
