2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition Revealed

By ,

Because the C7 Stingray wasn’t enough on its own, Chevy has introduced a version of the Vette that pays homage Corvette Racing C7.R racecars. 

Only 500 units will be available, and only in Corvette Racing’s signature yellow livery (or black), and will include the Z07 Performance Package that includes Brembo carbon ceramic brakes and a unique ID number on each vehicle. 

Fitted with the same 650-horsepower supercharged LT4 engine found in the Z06, the special edition C7.R also features aero components for unprecedented aerodynamic downforce (adjustable front and rear), as well as Magnetic Ride Control, an electronic limited slip differential, and Performance Traction Management. 

The 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 C7.R will go on sale later this year.
