Team Corvette Racing has been a force to be reckoned with for over a decade. With numerous podium finishes in both Le Mans and the American Le Mans Series, they have decided to let us share in the celebrations with a special edition Z06.

As an April 24 release from Chevrolet describes, the new C7.R edition combines the most exclusive options offered on the Z06 and will be limited to a run of only 500 cars. Finished in all black or a new “Corvette Racing Yellow Tintcoat,” the cars will feature a C7.R graphics package along with a new hood.

Also included is the wild Z07 package with adjustable spoilers and carbon ceramic brakes. The calipers are finished in yellow powedercoat, and are hidden behind gloss black Corvette Racing wheels. Competition seats, along with the shifter and steering wheel, are covered in black microfiber with yellow contrast stitching. All 500 cars will be built in a single run, beginning with VIN 700001. A numbered dash plaque complements the high-gloss carbon fiber and jet black leather interior.

With more exposed carbon fiber than any Chevrolet to date, the C7.R Z06 gives us a sneak preview of the near future. Corvette’s next generation is almost guaranteed to be made exclusively of the exotic composite, but we’re still a few years off.
