Corvette owners love exclusivity, and this 2008 Z06 427 Limited Edition model is a prime example.
Currently up for sale on bringatrailer.com, five bids have already climbed to $60,000 for this very nice one-owner Corvette, and that figure is likely to climb with five days still left in the action.
Not bad for a car that listed for $85,945 when new.
And this one appears to be just about like it left the Bowling Green factory more than a decade ago, having covered just 1,000 miles during that time.
All 427 Limited Edition models, of course, had the same Crystal Red Tintcoat paint with a central black stripe over a Dark Titanium leather interior and were very well equipped, including the 3LZ Preferred Equipment package, 427-only chrome wheels and interior trim, 6-speed manual transmission, and the optional navigation system.
Even with this much time passed since its debut, this limited edition ’08 still produces more horsepower with its 7.0-liter LS7 V8 engine (505) than the upcoming 2020 mid-engine Stingray (495) and will go from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds and cover the quarter-mile in 11.7 seconds at 125 mph.
One neat feature of all 427 Limited Editions is the fact that Wil Cooksey – Corvette plant manager from 1993 to 2008 – chose the color scheme and then signed and numbered the inside of all 505 armrest console lids. Check out the photo showing this particular example’s signature.
Other 427-exclusive features include “427” hood badges, a body-color rear lip spoiler, and body-color trim on the door handles.
The Carfax report is clean for this car, which is No. 6 out of the 505 produced for worldwide sales (with 427 appropriately sold in North America), and shows one registered owner in Michigan (original delivery to Les Stanford Chevrolet in Dearborn) and two oil changes, one in August 2013 at 488 miles and another in May 2019 at 947 miles.
The new owner will receive the window sticker, build sheet, factory manuals, and a clean Michigan title.
