Chevrolet is introducing the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition which will be limited to only 500 units.

As the name suggests, the special edition is derived from the C7.R racecar and will be offered as a coupe and convertible for the 3LZ trim. Only 500 of them are being built and all will come as standard with the Z07 Performance Package bringing Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, Michelin PS Cup 2 tires and a special serialized VIN. Customers will have to choose from either a new Corvette Racing Yellow Tintcoat paint or a black hue which will be combined with a C7.R Edition graphics package.

The Z06 C7.R Edition also benefits from yellow brake calipers hiding behind black wheels that have a yellow accent strip and Corvette Racing-logo center caps. Chevrolet has also added the carbon fiber ground effects package, visible carbon fiber hood section and a Spectra Gray Metallic look for the grilles and vents.

Stepping inside the cabin, the limited-run model has Jet Black leather upholstery with sueded microfiber accents on the doors and instrument panel. There's also a carbon fiber high-gloss trim package, Corvette Racing sill plates, yellow contrast stitching as well as sueded microfiber-trimmed Competition Sport Seat, steering wheel and shifter.

The 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition is scheduled to go on sale later this year.

Additional details can be found in the attached press release.
