2020 Indy 500 Pace Car
The all-new eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette Stingray led the 2020 Indianapolis 500 field to the green flag on Sunday, August 23 — the first time the race had ever been held outside of May. A specially prepared Torch Red 2020 Corvette Stingray coupe driven by GM President Mark Reuss paced the field of 33 IndyCars to a rolling start for the 104th Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge. The first-ever mid-engine Corvette, the 2020 Corvette Stingray Pace car is powered by a new LT2 6.2-liter V8 engine producing 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, delivered through an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 2020 Corvette Stingray Pace Car is further equipped with the Z51 Performance Package, a Corvette accessory spoiler, a ground effects package, Carbon Flash exterior accents, GT2 Bucket Seats and a unique Indy 500 livery.
