March 10, 2010.
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.

2011 Chevrolet 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.

Carlos's comments

This is definitely the best Corvette to date, I have contemplated getting one many times, especially with the intro of the Z06 and the Grand Sport but I just can not bite the bullet with it's interior. I have very high hopes for the C7, whenever that might be.

That's one great car from Chevy Corvette! one can look forward to see more of the limited edition Chevy Corvette!

Ron W.2622 days ago

In spite of the stunning exterior that every Corvette is born with, the interior still seems to be the part of the Corvette where all the criticisms go to roost...it's cheap-looking for a $50,000 car, it's tacky, it's low-cost, it's not unique like the exterior...it's done like an afterthought...and so on and so on...
Why can't GM and Chevrolet address this? Millions are spent on the drivetrain and suspension R&D ...and if you've seen the "Ultimate Factories" episode on the Corvette factory, you know how meticulous the building of this supercar is...so why is the interior, where the owner who's plunked down a minimum of $50,000 is going to spend all their time - so poorly done...the steering wheel looks like it came right out of a Malibu...the dials and controls also look Malibu ... The specialness of this car seems to end at the door sill, and that's a terrible shame...I know it's a bargain in comparison to other world-class supercars...but does the interior have to scream that it's a bargain everywhere you look...Spend a little less on the extra cost paint colors, and bring the interior materials, fit and finish, and LOOKS, up to the grade of the rest of the car... The interior of the mid-years Sting Ray was not like anything else in the Chevy line-up...why has that thinking gone away...?

Let's see... I think all Corvette are in good looks inside and out.... You may not be stunned with what you see.. but when you drive that Chevy, you'll see the difference between the other chevys. Do you know why? that Corvette Z06 has limited edition accessories called "Magnetic Selective Selective Ride Control" which enables the user of the car adjust into purposes of driving. That's cool.
