2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition

by Ionut Dragomir

When Chevrolet introduced Z06 in 2006, it was the most powerful Corvette on the market representing closest connection to the Corvette race cars ever. In 2009 Chevrolet introduced ZR1, which closed the gap between racing and production even further.

Now in 2010, Chevrolet is launching a limited edition called Corvette Z06 Carbon, which combines the lightweight and naturally-aspirated Z06 engine with the road-holding and braking of the ZR1, said Tadge Juechter, Corvette Chief Engineer.

The Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition is a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Corvette’s first race in the 24 Hours of LeMans, with a limited production of 500 units.

Z06 Carbon features Brembo carbon ceramic brakes(first introduced on the ZR1 in 2009) with specific dark gray metallic calipers. Black 20-spoke 19-inch front/20-inch rear wheels complement the car’s Michelin PS2 tires.

Other mechanical features include Magnetic Selective Ride Control for the first time on the Z06 and enhanced cooling. The car also features a special carbon pattern engine cover.

Two colors are available to choose from: Inferno Orange and the all-new Supersonic Blue. Other visual highlights are black headlamps and mirrors, a ZR1-style body color spoiler, body color door handles, carbon fiber raised hood, and black carbon fiber rockers and splitter.

Interior is finished with ebony leather and suede interiorcomplemented by blue or orange seat stitching to match the exterior color chosen.
