Default Rarest option code

So I see the the resurrection of on old thread concerning the 2015 Atlantic and Pacific Editions. So the question is what is the rarest option code out there '63 Z06, L88 etc for earlier models. BUT for the c7 ATI bets them hands down. I really don't care wether or not it adds value to the car it is just another GOOD story to go along with the car

The rarest option code is probably PIN - Customer selectable VIN ending - This option is subject to restrictions and approval. NOT AVAILABLE on all VINs. Available on SOLD orders only. I'm too lazy to look up the actual production stats.

Maybe not. 3 for 2014, 9 for 2015 ,8 for 2016. 20 total so far for the C7. Original question pertains to the entire C7 run so it looks like PIN option does outnumber ATI option. Good input though THX

Is there a public-accessed site for looking up production runs? I would like to see how many were made exactly like my GS being built next week

If what use is a "customized VIN"? Plus, IIRC, it was fairly expensive.

I am NOT talking about dealer installed options or rare combinations!! But the REGULAR PRODUCTION NUMBER. Those silver painted tt wheels were and still are an add on AFTER the car was built at BG!! So you have a so called rare combo maybe 5 or 6 like it but when you look at the Atlantic Edition with only 17 made I would wager a good sum that NO two are alike and each one is a one of one.

both are only which are two of only 43 Z06 coupes with twilight blue design package.built. mine being shark gray it'll be 1 of 8 forever. Obviously white will always continue. It is timeless. But I wanted a "color" car this time around.

makes for good conversation especially when people see the wheels amongst a sea of black Z06 wheels with some silver, chrome, and spectra gray sprinkled in. Then a look inside and their eyes go wide for the sea of blue. Spice red and twilight blue are such nice hues.

This is a are combo but not a rare RPO# since hundreds of the Design packages were produced. A picture would be nice.

My car is the only one with ME in it. One of one.

I kid, of course... even though they made 500 of them, mine does come with one of these:



And the vin# that matches it.

You have #001? Or is that a Google pic?

There were 1050 Premiere Editions made. 500 coupes and 550 Verts. Neither version is anywhere as exclusive as the ones addressed already in this thread, even though they are cool cars to have.

Like the plaque says, they only made 500 Premiere Edition Coupes. There were 550 Premiere Edition Convertibles, I believe, but I wouldn't say the made "1050 Premiere Editions" simply because they're not labeled as such. E.g., you don't have #125/1050, do you?

And as for so-called "exclusivity" I find that it's a silly distinction altogether, because what makes it exclusive is completely up to the person claiming it. I have #1 of #1 of this tissue "art" that i just made here. How's that for exclusivity!

edit: Sorry, I'm too slow to reply. ^ that was meant for lisa.

Those NCM badges are pretty cool, but like the Corvette luggage that came with my car, they often don't make it into the 2nd owner's hands. Not that it's a bad thing, that badge is a nice piece of memorabilia if you ever get rid of the Corvette.

I was looking at a base model 14 Stingray that i passed on in favor of my Z51 coupe. It was Lime rock green with Brownstone Napa. I believe they only made 15 Browstone Napa base convertibles for all colors.

Not exactly a specific option code but I was thinking it would be one of few.

Seems to me another term for "rarest" is "least popular."
