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 chrome rims were some of the best that GM has ever included on a car, and the interior was decked out in final edition stitching and leather. If you are wanting to collect a C5 Corvette, the 2004 Commemorative Edition may be be the car for you. The unique branding of this model coupled with the beautiful looks is hard for anyone to pass up.

2: 2007 Z06 Ron Fellows Championship Edition

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.

The car looked every bit the racing Corvette that it was, coupled with the backing of Ron Fellows the performance was out of the roof. The 2007 Z06 Ron Fellows Championship Edition is of course one of the rarest Z06 models that you can get your hands on. If you enjoy road racing, this is the C6 Corvette that you are going to want to have.

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.
