Have you ever wanted to get behind the wheel of professional Corvette Racing C7.R but didn’t want to have to get your own helmet or fire suit? Now is your chance. Chevrolet has just announced they will be building 500 versions of the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R. The limited edition 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R versions that will be built, each one will feature the Z07 performance package and have serialized VIN that will be engraved on a plate and installed on the vehicle’s dashboard. Additionally, each model will come in Corvette Racing’s special yellow livery and have coordinated exterior and interior accents. Black will also be an optional exterior color.
This isn’t going to be some stripped down kit car that superficially resembles the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R. Many of the same components and features that are used by the professional racing team will be included with the car, huge rear wing notwithstanding. Some of the features that the lucky few will have with their racing-inspired Corvette Z06 are C7.R Edition graphics, yellow brake calipers, black wheels with yellow accent strip, carbon fibre ground effects, Spectra Grey Metallic grilles and vents, sueded microfiber-trimmed competition sport seat, steering wheel and shifter as well as Corvette Racing sill plates.
