The Indianapolis 500 is an important cornerstone of the American racing tradition, and ever since its inception it has served both as a challenge for racers, and a marketing tool for automakers. After all, what better way to get your vehicle out in front of millions of racing fans than to have it operate as the official pace car?
It sure has helped Chevy take the lead in the muscle car wars, outselling both the Challenger and Mustang. Up on eBay right now is a 2011 Chevy Camaro Indy 500 Pace Car replica – your chance to own a piece of Camaro history.
GM has a long history of offering pace car replicas right off of the showroom floor, and the Indy 500 Camaro Pace Car is no exception. The original MSRP on one of these is $47,000, which gets you the special graphics, 20-inch rims, Indy 500 logo inserts on the headrests, an Inferno Orange engine cover, and a unique body color grille insert. It’s one fancy Camaro, to be sure, and this one is still fresh, with just 15 miles on the odometer.
But that’s not all! You’re also getting a Camaro 2SS, a fully optioned muscle machine with a unique look and livery. Bidding has already crossed the $50,000 threshold, and this Camaro is a must-have for any serious car collector and Indy 500 fan.
