[PICS] Chevrolet Pays Respect to Corvette Racing with the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition

On Friday, Chevrolet introduced all the changes and upgrades to the 2016 model year Corvette. Today, we take a closer look at the limited edition 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R edition which pays homage to the factory-backed Corvette Racing team.

The Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition will be available in fourth quarter 2015 and is limited to just 500 units. So if you want one of these, you better start talking to a dealership about getting on a list because we don’t expect these to hanging around dealership lots once they are produced.
