This year Chevrolet celebrate its 19th time as official pace car with the Corvette. And as Chevy is campaigning full tilt about Ethanol, they have made a special concept Corvette pace car. This Corvette Z06 Ethanol will not be sold to the public and it will remain a concept. It feature an amazing color changing paint that range from green to blue with yellow highlights. The effect is similar to the Dupont ’miracle paint’ seen in the past. But here the paint color is much brighter than the older dark purple to dark blue effect.

This car will be driven by Emerson Fittipaldi during the 2008 Indy 500 race.

Two other Corvette Indy500 Pace car will be present at the event. A coupe version will cover the first 100th caution laps and a convertible version will cover the other 100th laps. Both the coupe and convertible run on regular gas and they will be available for sale.
