Want to purchase the GTE-Pro class-winning Corvette C6R from last year’s 24 hours of Le Mans? Well too bad, you can’t have that one, but can take home this yellow 2006 Z06 that’s decked out as tribute to Team Corvette’s epic triumph in France last summer.
We first stumbled upon this car at last year’s SEMA show. Currently listed for sale on the Corvette Forum, the bright yellow 2006 began life as a basic Z06 equipped with the 2lz option package, navigation, HUD, Bose, and other Z06-spec content.
Obviously turning a Z06 into a C6.R takes some tweaking. Some of the additions to this car include:
- A C6R graphite package
- CCW C14 Corsair black powder coated wheels (18×11 out front and 18×13 in back) with Toyo tires
- Pfadt Featherlight coilovers
- OMP steering wheel
- HTE race seat
- C5R Derin shift knop
- DBA 4000 front rotors
- Carbotech race pads
- Sharkbar harness
- Schroth Enduro belts on the driver seat
- Dewitt’s race dual roll radiator
- Blendmount radar mount with Valentine radar detector
- Custom one-off front splitter
- Side skirts
- CF rear diffuser
- Mild to Wild exhaust switch
The car itself has travelled 52,000 miles since new. Under the hood there’s a recently-installed LS7 crate motor. Inside of it is an ARE Stage 3 dry sump system, a Katech Hi-Vol oil pressure pump, and an ACT Twin disc clutch kit. That fresh lump carries a 3-year, 100,000 mile warranty with it. Outside there’s the Velocity Yellow paint, victorious #73 badging, a monster rear wing, and the related supporting sponsor decals.
So how much will it cost you to impersonate Olivier Beretta, Tommy Milner, and Antonio Garcia? The asking price is just $55,000 which isn’t too shabby for a Z06 with a new motor and a ton of high-end modifications.
Now the next step will be to convince you coworkers to give a champagne shower each morning when you arrive at the office.
