Chevrolet took SEMA by storm this year by launching a special edition of the high performance Corvette Z06 model. Named the Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition, the special edition pays history to the racing history of the renowned model with a number of refinements that will appeal to those with a love for speed.
The C7.R edition provides the Z06 with a 3LZ trim, in addition to a Z07 Performance Package that consists of Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes and Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires from Michelin. Small touches like yellow brake calipers, matching yellow stripes for the black wheels, a carbon hood section, special graphics, grilles and vents in metallic grey add a lot of verve to the exteriors. The interiors are just as luxurious with seats in black leather having sueded microfiber trim, sports seats, and yellow stitching.
Buyers of the limited series special edition can choose from either coupe or convertible models in black or yellow based on their preference. To maintain the exclusivity of the model, the production run will be capped at 650 cars, with 500 of them being reserve for sale within the United States.
Each car will come with its very own unique number with the first one to come off the line being numbered as VIN 700001. The car will definitely create a splash on the performance car segment with a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine having an output of 650 horsepower and an equal measure of torque. This will give the model the power to go from 0-60 mph in less than 3 seconds for the automatic version and 3.2 for the manual version.
