Save 10% on Selected Items During Shark Week at Zip Corvette Parts

Our friends at Zip Corvette are celebrating the return of Discovery TV’s Shark Week with a special offer.

Corvette history buffs know all about the design inspirations that the iconic creature of the sea has had on the Corvette world. The Corvette, similar to the massive Great White in the sense that all of its competition scatters whenever it comes around, has a shark infested history – the Sting Ray, the Mako Shark and the Manta Ray. While the Sting Ray was the only model to make it to production, the others are certainly legends in their own right.

When Chevrolet first introduced the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition at the Corvette Museum’s Bash in April, they naturally showed the Coupe version in new Corvette Racing Yellow. But if you read the release notes (or watched our video), you would know that the limited-edition salute to Corvette Racing’s C7.R was also available in Convertible form, and yes Batman, it comes in Black.

At the 2015 Bloomington Gold Corvette show at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Chevrolet showed off their first Black Convertible Z06 C7.R Edition. Thanks to these photos from Travis Raczynski and our friend Corvette Conti who brought these to our attention, we’re able to share the dark side of the new limited edition Corvette.

Raffle of 2015 C7 Corvette Stingray to Benefit Patty Pollatos Fund

Buying a chance to win a brand new 2015 C7 Corvette Stingray coupe and at the same time helping some folks who have hit a few bumps in their lives seems like a worthwhile investment to us, even if you don’t win. All of the proceeds from the raffle of the Stingray, from Criswell Chevrolet, home of Corvette mega-salesman Mike Furman, will go to the Patty Pollatos Fund, an all-volunteer, non-profit charity in Frederick County, Maryland.
