Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition

Back in 2006 the Corvette Z06 was introduced and it represented the closest connection to Corvette cars ever since. The Z06 Carbon Limited Edition is just another example of the expanded Corvette line-up. The model 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 Michelin PS2 tires of the car. Other mechanical features include Magnetic Selective Ride Control for the first time on the Z06 end enhanced cooling. The car also features a special carbon pattern engine cover. The model will be available in two colors inferno Orange and the all-new Supersonic Blue. For track events, customers can also install the Euro-styled racing numbers that come with each car. The ebony leather and suede interior of the car is complemented by blue or orange seat stitching to match the exterior color chosen. The carmaker also offered a specially made steering wheel emblem, sill plate and the headrest with the logo on it. The suede used on the shifter, steering wheel, seat inserts and doors help improve the luxurious character of this limited edition Z06. This is not all. An optional Z07 performance package that includes the mechanical upgrades introduced on the Z06 Carbon can be added to a regular 2011 Z06. To be more precise, this package includes all the chassis and cooling upgrades, but also Competition Gray 20-spoke wheels. Another available package is the CFZ Z06 carbon fiber package that includes black carbon fiber rockers, splitter and roof panel with the entire spoiler. The 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition, but also the Z07 and CFZ Z06 option packages will be available this summer.
