The new Corvette Z06 is basically a road-going version of the Corvette C7 R Racecar, but the American automaker wanted to take this supercar even closer to the competition model, unveiling a special 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition.
Built as a homeage to the powerful racecar, the C7.R edition will be produced in a limited run of just 500 units, each of them featuring Corvette Racing’s signature yellow or black livery, with race-inspired accents inside out. All models will include the Z07 Performance Package with carbon ceramic brakes and other interesting upgrades.
Outside, the Z06 C7.R Edition will feature a special graphics package and a set of striking black wheels with yellow accent strips and Corvette Racing center caps. Visible Carbon Fiber accents, yellow brake calipers, a new carbon fiber hood section and Spectra Gray Metallic grilles and vents are other upgrades that will distinguish this car from the standard model.
The car’s interior has been also refined with Jet Black leather featuring suede microfiber accents on doors, instrument panels, sport seats, steering wheel and shifter, with contrasting yellow stitching and carbon fiber elements.
