In their effort to expand the Corvette lineup, Chevy just announced the 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition model – a track-tuned version of the Z06.
The Z06 Carbon features 20-spoke black 19-inch front/20-inch rear wheels, Magnetic Selective Ride Control, a special carbon pattern engine cover, and the ZR1’s Brembo carbon ceramic brakes. It will only be available in two colors – thankfully two sexy colors – Inferno Orange and a new Supersonic Blue, which you see here.
Other aesthetics of the Z06 Carbon include black headlamps and mirrors, a ZR1-style spoiler, carbon fiber hood, and black carbon fiber rockers and splitter.
Inside, you get ebony leather and suede interior with blue or orange seat stitching, depending on the color you choose (although blue stitching on an orange car would be…unique.) Other additions are your typical limited edition stuff – steering wheel emblem, sill plate, embroidered headrest, blah blah.
Only 500 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbons will be made – pricing to be announced – and should be available this summer.
Interestingly, regular Z06 owners will also have the opportunity to purchase a Z07 performance package or CFZ Z06 carbon fiber package, which essentially turn it into the Z06 Carbon. You’ll have more customization choices with your own Z06 this way, but you couldn’t say you own the special edition. Hmm.
