Ganassi Driver - Scott Dixon

"In order to get the DW12 to do the things I want in medium- and slow-speed turns, I've had to make it very loose in the high-speed corners. That's where this car finds its speed, but it's quite a handful.

Dario prefers a solid rear end to his car, and he's very particular about handling."

2012 Indy 500 Pace Car

After a three year hiatus, the Corvette returns in 2012 as the Official Pace Car for the 96th Indy 500. The 638-horsepower ZR1 is the most powerful production car ever to lead the Indy 500. And with a sticker price of for than $120k, it may likely be the most expensive. 2013 marks 60th anniversary for the iconic American sports car.

The Corvette Pace Car features an exterior paint scheme and full body length stripe similar to that of the 60th Anniversary Package being made available on all 2013 Corvette models. The 60th Anniversary Package features an Arctic White exterior with a Blue Diamond leather-wrapped interior with suede accents. Convertible models will have a blue top.

Additional content includes a ZR1-style rear spoiler, special badging, gray-painted brake calipers and the "60th" logo on the wheel center caps, steering wheel and seat headrests. An optional graphics package adds full-length racing stripes in Pearl Silver Blue, including a tonal stripe stitched into the convertible top, extending the graphic theme over the roof.
