MT. PLEASANT, Mich -- Chevrolet has announced the 2019 Corvette Drivers Series special edition Grand Sport models designed in collaboration with the Corvette Racing team.

"...they celebrate Corvette Racing's winning legacy, which is driven by a world-class team of drivers from around the globe...each driver worked with Chevrolet designers on the graphics for their respective edition, giving the cars distinctly personalized appearances.".
