Lot #1617 2003 CHEVROLET CORVETTE LEMANS PACE CAR #3
Lot #1617 - One of the pace cars for the 2003 24 Hours of LeMans. The Corvette was selected to pace an international field of sports cars as the Official Pace Car of the 67th running of the LeMans 24-hour race. Chevrolet had officially returned to American road racing earlier in the year with the introduction of the C5-R, a GM engineered GTS sports car based on the production Corvette. Involvement in such global events as the LeMans 24-hour race reinforces Corvette's image as a world-class sports car. All 1999 Corvettes came standard with a 345hp, 5.7 Liter V8 LS1 aluminum block engine, a 6-speed manual transmission, a 3.42 limited-slip rear axle ratio, the Z51 suspension package (designed for sanctioned racing competition), speed-sensitive power rack-and-pinion steering, anti-lock (ABS) brakes, electronic traction control and Goodyear Eagle F-1 GS run-flat tires. The only modifications made to convert the production vehicle for pace car duties were custom wheels and exhaust system, a unique paint scheme and installation of roof-mounted safety lights.
