With only 500 units lined up for production, the 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition serves as a must have for any Corvette collector! The new Z06 is “designed to further incorporate technology through racing”, and is, “…a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Corvette’s first race in the 24 Hours of LeMans”, says Chevrolet General Manager, Jim Campbell. According to Tadge Juechter, Corvette Chief Engineer, the Z06 Carbon is, “the best balanced Corvette yet. It combines the lightweight and naturally-aspirated Z06 engine with the road-holding and braking of the ZR1”.
This limited edition Z06 will boast Bremo carbon ceramic brakes with specific dark gray metallic calipers. The Corvette will also sport black 20 spoke 19-inch/20-inch rear wheels wrapped by Michelin PS2 tires. And, for the first time, the Z06 will have Magnetic Selective Ride Control.
The car also features a special carbon pattern engine cover. The Corvette Z06 Carbon will be available in two colors: Inferno Orange and Supersonic Blue. It is enhanced by black headlamps and mirrors, a ZR-1 style body color spoiler, body color door handles, carbon raised hood, and black carbon fiber rockers and splitter. For track events, you can even install Euro-styled racing numbers (that come with each car).
The 2011 Corvette Z06 is decked to the nines. Its ebony leather and suede interior is enhanced by blue or orange seat stitching (depending on what color you choose), and you will also find a unique steering wheel emblem, sill plate and logoed headrest. The suede used on the steering wheel, shifter, seat inserts, armrests and doors add to the luxury of the Z06!
The 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition will be available late this summer! So look into buying yours today, there are only 500!
