During our 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show coverage, a Chevrolet Corvette convertible stood out to me.

That's because it was sitting center stage in the Chevrolet booth AND it was painted what I believe is a rare color.

It was a dark green.

Most folks don't order green for their Corvette but this one is a particularly rich color and it looks fantastic when matched up with the Brownstone leather interior. Turns out I picked out a special one as it was what Chevrolet is dubbing the "Premiere Edition."

550 of these are to be built and they will arrive in early 2014. Pricing starts at $77,450, which boils down to a $4,000 premium to get the Premiere Edition over a similarly equipped Corvette convertible with all the add ins noted in the press release below.

Chevrolet's press release follows:
