GM Reveals 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Edition

2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition

Quote:
DETROIT -- When the 2006 Corvette Z06 was introduced, it represented the closest connection to the Corvette race cars ever. The 2009 Corvette ZR1 closed the gap between racing and production even further. This year, Corvette continues its tradition of track-to-street technology transfer with the 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition.

“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 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition is another example of the expanded Corvette line-up. Five years ago, customers had the choice of a Corvette coupe or convertible. With the addition of the Z06, Grand Sport coupe and convertible and ZR1, Corvette enthusiasts now have more choices than ever.

“For track use, the Z06 Carbon is the best balanced Corvette yet. It combines the lightweight and naturally-aspirated Z06 engine with the road-holding and braking of the ZR1,” said Tadge Juechter, Corvette Chief Engineer. “For technical tracks like Laguna Seca, the Z06 Carbon could shave up to three seconds off the Z06 lap time.”

This limited edition Z06 will boast Brembo carbon ceramic brakes with specific dark gray metallic calipers. These powerful brakes were first introduced on the ZR1. 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.

The Corvette Z06 Carbon will be available in two colors: Inferno Orange and the all-new Supersonic Blue. 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 enhance the Z06’s dynamic design and reduce mass and aerodynamic lift. For track events, customers can also install the Euro-styled racing numbers that come with each car.

The Z06 Carbon’s ebony leather and suede interior is complemented by blue or orange seat stitching to match the exterior color chosen. Other features include a unique steering wheel emblem, sill plate and logoed headrest. The suede used on the steering wheel, shifter, seat inserts, armrests and doors add to the luxury of this limited edition Z06.

An optional Z07 performance package that includes the mechanical upgrades introduced on the Z06 Carbon can be added to a regular 2011 Z06. This package also includes Competition Gray 20-spoke wheels and all the chassis and cooling upgrades.

The CFZ Z06 carbon fiber package includes black carbon fiber rockers, splitter and roof panel with the full-width body color spoiler. It can also be purchased with or without the Z07 package on regular Z06 models.

The 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition, as well as the new Z07 and CFZ Z06 option packages will be available in late summer.

Sounds like all the people who complain about the GS looking like the Z06. If thats all you take away from this you are clearly missing the point.

GS doesn't look like the Z06, just has the same bumper and hood.

That thing is SICK... another SWEET ass bump for the C6 until the next one arrives. Chevy is making it harder and harder for me to resist replacing my Z51 with a GS already.. now this. I'm waiting best I can for a look see at the C7 before I make a choice... But DAMMIT... now this effin gorgeous, lighter, faster Vette arrives.

Too many choices coming outta GM these days. I HATE GM for this... and for that... I'M GONNA PAY

So basically you can get everything but the hood and interior stitching on a regular Z06....

Duh! Me too!! Wish they wouldn't have discontinued that copper color! That's what I had wanted! Not like I'm running out to buy my Vette anytime soon! 4 years...I hope.

The grand sport is very similar in apperance to the z06. The fender flares are the same size and the enlarged rear fender flares are also there. It's pretty much a z06 look alike body. The big visual change being the vents behind the front tires. It's a great car. I've had the pleasure of having a 2008 and a 2007 z06 at my used car dealership. I drove the 2007 for 600 miles as my demo and it's alot of car to handle for the street. The 2008 which we still have has tune, headers and intake and it's just stupid fast. Sounds amazing, gets looks EVERYWHERE you go but you can't put the power down, it just wants to burn up the very expensive tires. I do have a friend with a zr1 and he traded in his z06 for the zr1 and says the zr1 is a much much smoother ride. If I was buying a brand new vette today I'd go with a grand sport without thinking. You get all the goodies from the z06 but with power that is very useable on the street.
