Detroit, Michigan – General Motors has announced the 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition, which will go on sale this summer.
“Designed to further incorporate technology developed through racing, the Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition is a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Corvette’s first race in the 24 Hours of LeMans,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet general manager. “With a limited production of 500 units, this car is a must-have for the true Corvette collector and driving enthusiast.”
The model features Brembo ceramic brakes first introduced on the ZR1, along with black 20-spoke wheels, Michelin PS2 tires, a carbon pattern engine cover, and the first use of Magnetic Selective Ride Control on the Z06. It will be available in Inferno Orange or new Supersonic Blue, and include black headlamps and mirrors, ZR1-style body-colour spoiler, carbon fibre raised hood, and black carbon fibre rockers and splitters. For track events, customers can install the Euro-styled racing numbers that come with each car.
