7: 1995 Guldstrand GS90

Similar to other rare Corvette models that were put together back then, the Guldstrand GS90 was another novelty. The car was designed by Dick Guldstrand, a famous Corvette racing champion. He used the ZR1 as the base for the car and charged a $200,000 sticker price for the customization.

Needless to say, this is one of the best-looking C4s that you can get and rare to boot. The interesting look and feel of the car are only outclassed by the amazing performance that it has on the roadways. The GS90 might not be a mainstream Corvette model but it is one that certainly stands out from the crowd.

The Grand Sport is the undeniable champion of the C4 platform. The blue paint scheme with the white stripes just set the car off like nothing else that was on the road. The blacked-out rims went with the mystique of the package which brought the Corvette line back to the racing world.

The Grand Sport is perhaps the most notable Corvette model for several reasons, and the unique design is something that still looks great to this day. While the Grand Sport might not be the rarest Corvette on the road, it certainly holds a candle to the other rare models we remembered.

3: 2004 Commemorative Edition

By 2004, the death knell had rung on the C5 Corvette, and that just about did it for enthusiasts. Although the C6 was a better sports car in just about every way, the C5 was the first modern Corvette that addressed a lot of the problems with the brand. The 2004 Commemorative Edition had a beautiful paint job and several upgrades to it.

The unique branding of this model coupled with the beautiful looks is hard for anyone to pass up.

The C6 Corvette ended up being one of the most popular models that were ever made. GM made several changes to the modern Z06 which included more performance upgrades. The 2007 Z06 Ron Fellows Championship Edition added to that mystique with a lot of new features.

1: 2007 Indy 500 Pace Car Replica

Once again, GM returned to its Indy Car roots with another replica, although the exterior color of this one was a bit milder. Decked out a beautiful orange metallic, the 2007 Indy 500 Pace Car Replica was everything that drivers sought in a collectors edition Corvette.

The C5 was not much of an improvement from the interior perspective, but then again, you aren’t buying a Corvette for the luxury features. You buy a Corvette because it is a fun-to-drive car that can handle its own on the track. The 2007 Indy 500 Pace Car Replica is a beautiful example of the C6 generation.
