The Corvette Z06 Carbon is a special limited edition version of the Z06, one which borrows some technology and engineering from the incredible Corvette ZR1. Only 500 examples are due to be built.

"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."

The Z06 Carbon achieves this thanks to a range of modifications including, yep you guessed it, carbon fiber components. The car features a lightweight carbon fiber hood (even lighter than the ZR1's thanks to the lack of a window), and black painted carbon fiber sideskirts and splitter.

The Z06 Carbon also gets the ZR1's Brembo carbon ceramic brakes with dark gray metallic calipers. Other mechanical upgrades derived from the ZR1 include the Magnetic Selective Ride Control system, and an enhanced cooling system.

The Corvette Z06 Carbon is available in two colors: Inferno Orange and the all-new Supersonic Blue. Black headlamps, wheels and mirrors give the car a more sinister edge. Optional racing numbers come supplied with the 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 embroidered headrest.
