Fellows’ traveller

Special edition Corvette Z06 is named after, erm, some Canadian bloke

Corvette Z06

If we were compiling a list of pointless special edition cars, this Corvette Z06 Ron Fellows would be a strong contender.

Aside from the Corvette already selling in penny numbers in the UK, hands up who knows who Ron Fellows is? 

Ah, not many of you.

Well, he's a Canadian racing driver who has helped Corvette become a highly successful team in endurance racing, and the company felt like marking his achievements.

The Z06 bearing his name only comes in white with a full-width racing spoiler on the rear, and Fellows' signature inside and out.

Only 33 of these cars have been set aside for European Corvette customers with a price of £69,197. 

The saving grace of the Ron Fellows limited edition is that it's still a Corvette Z06 underneath with a seven-litre V8, a 0-60mph time of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 199mph.

But then you get all that with the standard Z06 that costs £62,695.

Now share it...
