[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.

No 2016 Corvettes were on display today and several potential 2016s had the C7.R car cover we first spotted at SEMA last year. So you can imagine our excitement when Bowling Green Plant Manager Jeff Lamarche showed up at the end of the day with a 2016 Corvette Stingray in the new Corvette Racing Yellow.

New 2016 Corvette Colors Revealed!

Our friend Rick Conti at Ohio’s Coughlin Chevrolet has been Johnny-on-the-spot when it comes to spotting the color changes coming on the new 2016 Corvette.

Rick was the first to notice that Velocity Yellow was on a major constraint for 2015 Corvettes earlier this month and that a possible color change was coming. Then he found the RPO code for a new Yellow in GM’s Order System. Now, Rick is attempting to break the internet with the reveal of the new 2016 color chips and their new names.
