The 2012 Centennial Edition Corvette Z06 made its public debut last weekend at the Chevrolet display at Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach collector car auction. Here are a few pictures of the upcoming appearance package which really highlight the new Carbon Flash Metallic paint. I bet this bad boy really shines in the sunlight!

Also, I caught a few images from a time-shift promotion that I believe Chevy was running at the display. Like the famous effects in the movie The Matrix, multiple cameras aligned at different angles capture an image simultaneously, and then they are stitched together. I included several in the gallery from social-gen.com. They take a second or two to load, but are pretty cool to watch.

During Saturday afternoon’s auction in Palm Beach, Chevy dealer and NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick purchased the right to buy the 100th 2012 Corvette Centennial Edition Z06 when production gets underway this summer. Hendrick paid $175,000 which was donated to the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer.
