Just like it did with the coupe, Chevy has announced that it will offer the Corvette Stingray Convertible as an exclusive Premiere Edition for a lucky few customers. Limited to just 550 units, all examples of the Stingray Premiere Edition Convertible will come in Lime Rock Green with a tan top, fitted with all the goodies from the base 3LT Z51 Convertible and then some.

These convertibles will all add dealer-option five-spoke wheels with Stingray-logo center caps, while the interior adds suede upholstery, carbon-fiber trim and special sill plates. If that's not enough, the Premiere Edition roadster also comes standard with optional extras like the performance exhaust and Magnetic Selective Ride Control fitted as standard. The whole package is finished off with a $920 five-piece fitted luggage set from Thule.

When this limited-edition convertible goes on sale early next year, Chevy will be asking - and likely have no problem getting - $77,450 for it (including destination). That's about $10,000 over a stock 3LT Z51 convertible, and about a $4,000 premium over a fully-loaded model fitted with all of this car's options. Is that measure of exclusivity worth the extra four grand? If for resale value alone, we're sure at least 550 buyers will think so.Continue reading Corvette Convertible kicks off with exclusive Premiere Edition
