When sales do begin, the special edition will be offered as a coupe or convertible in 2SS trim and a choice of either a six-speed manual with a 6.2-liter V8 rated at 426 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque or a six-speed automatic with 400 hp and 410 pound-feet of twist.
To set the edition off as something a little different in addition to its Emerald Green paint, it'll get a ground effects package, the rear spoiler from the ZL1, 21-inch Chrome Dusk wheels and Cyber Gray rally stripes down the hood and trunk. The RS Appearance Package with high-intensity discharge headlights will also be standard equipment. For the interior, customers will be nestled in black upholstery and Graphite Silver trim with a black top for convertibles.
If all of that fails to impress potential buyers, a sunroof, dual-mode exhaust, navigation and a short-throw shifter will be optional, as well.
