On Saturday, I was able to get some great video of the new 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition and I’m pretty sure I’ve captured most of the visible elements that make up the carbon package. The black rear-view mirrors and piano-black side skirts look exceptionally cool against the Supersonic Blue exterior paint.
Inside, you will see the suede on the seat inserts, doors, shift-boot, center console and the steering wheel. Tadge said that as they started adding suede to the different parts of the interior, they liked it so much that they said put it everywhere and then we’ll take out what we don’t like. The blue stitching really adds to overall effect as well.
We also captured the custom sill plates and pedals. Under the carbon fiber hood, you can make out where the ZR1’s polycarbonate window would go and you can also see the special carbon fiber fuel rail covers.
The numbers that go with the car are customer installed. When asked if they would be sequential with the build, Harlan was non-committal. Guess we’ll have to wait for the C5/C6 Bash at the Museum to know for sure.
