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.

Final 2015 Corvette Production Statistics


The second year of C7 Corvette production ended almost two weeks ago and thanks to our friends at the National Corvette Museum, we already have a breakdown of the final 2015 Corvette production statistics.

For the 2015 model year, Chevrolet build 34,240 Corvettes. Production decreased 8% from the 37,288 Corvette Stingrays built during the C7’s inaugural year, but we’ve been told that the production cycle for the 2014 model year was slightly longer than 2015.

Leading the production was the 2015 Corvette Stingray Coupe. GM built 20,757 Stingray Coupes which accounted for 60.6% of Corvette production. The Z06 Coupe was second with 6,980 built for a 20.4% share. The Corvette Stingray Convertible’s production was 4,830 for 14.1% and finally the Corvette Z06 Convertible total was 1,673 for 4.9%.

Chevrolet continues to move forward with new technology as its first 2016 cars featuring Apple’s CarPlay have started rolling off the assembly line this month.

And that history-making vehicle was none other than a silver Corvette Z06, featured in photos shared by GM with TechCrunch.

The Corvette joins some pretty exclusive company with CarPlay as the Ferrari FF was the first to feature the Apple system. (The system was available, however, to aftermarket customers through Alpine and Pioneer.)

[VIDEO] Chevrolet Mexico's Human Cannonball vs Corvette Z06


Despite working two years for a Spanish-language radio station as my first job out of college, speaking Spanish was not a skill I was blessed with. Lucky for me then that mastery of the Spanish language was not needed to decode this new stunt video from Chevrolet Mexico featuring a human cannonball and the new 2015 Corvette Z06.

[PICS] Z06 Shows Off New EFY Body Colored Vent Option for 2016 Corvettes


As the C7 Corvette matures into its third year of production, Chevrolet continues to offer new options for Corvette owners to personalize their rides. One of the new options for 2016 is called EFY and it allows you to order your Corvettes with the vents on the hood, side coves and rear to be painted the same color as the rest of the body.

We’ve seen some mods of people painting their vents the same color as the rest of the body but it’s never been something we would do to our C7 Corvette. But for those that want a single color Corvette, you can now order that same look straight from the factory like this Arctic White Corvette Z06 that was shared by our friend Corvette Conti.

Preliminary 2016 Corvette Pricing Released - Z06 C7.R Edition's MSRP is $111,400


We found out this morning from National Corvette seller Mike Furman that some preliminary pricing has been announced for the 2016 Corvette Stingray and Z06. Full 2016 Corvette pricing is still expected later this month, but according to Mike, all Corvettes models will be receiving a $400 increase for the new year. We were actually expecting to see at least a $1,000 bump in price so only $400 is something we can live with.

[VIDEO] RallyCross in a C5 Corvette Z06


Remember that C5 Corvette Z06 that did a burnout so awesome that the brakes caught on fire? We figured Matt Einarsson was the owner of the car after seeing a couple more videos featuring the same C5 Z06s in his youtube timeline.

Matt reached out to us on our facebook page and gave us a heads up on another video featuring his Corvette Z06 in an SCCA sanctioned RallyCross – which is pretty much an autocross held on dirt. Matt shows no fear in driving his Z06 off-road and the car is more than capable in handling the terrain.

Nurburgring Lap Time for the C7 Corvette Z06 Completed and Video Coming Soon


How about some good news to share!

After two aborted attempts to record a hot lap on the 12.9 mile Nurburgring, the 2015 Corvette Z06 returned to Germany last month and was finally successful in getting a continuously-timed lap. Apparently, the team is more than happy with the lap time they got from the Z06 at the “Green Hell”.

That bit of news came directly from Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter who shared the tidbit of the completed lap during his weekly “Ask Tadge” question and answer posts on the Corvette Forum.

Tadge was asked about the design philosophy of the C7 Z06 vs the previous C6 Z06 which was lighter and was considered more of track car than the generously appointed C7 version. The answer is quite detailed and you can read the full reply there. But here is what Tadge said about the Nurburgring time:
