To commemorate all the success of the Corvette C8.R in the 2020 IMSA series, where it had a clean sweep of the Manufacturers’, Driver’s, and Team titles, Chevrolet is offering the 2022 Corvette Stingray IMSA GTLM Championship Edition.
Well, the C7.R was also very successful on the track, and Chevy offered a similar tribute for the seventh-generation Z06 with a special edition in 2016.
The owner of this 2015 Corvette Z06 was too early for that party so he decided to turn his non-special-edition car into his own tribute to the Corvette Racing #64 C7.R that competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2018 and 2019.
Now, this customized Z06 is up for sale on Bring a Trailer for the next five days, with the highest offer so far hitting $50,000.
The seller bought his Velocity Yellow Z06 in May 2017 and promptly had it modified for the 2018 SEMA show in Las Vegas, adding C7.R-style equipment such as Corvette Racing graphics and a carbon-fiber APR front splitter, chassis-mounted rear wing, and side skirts.
Mechanically, the supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 engine, already rated at 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, is connected to a seven-speed manual transmission and was upgraded with an AFE high-flow air intake. The exhaust system was also modified with a Borla cross-pipe, MagnaFlow exhaust tips, and muffler delete, and clear paint-protection film was added to the front bumper and rear fenders. The car also includes a C7.R plaque and American-flag graphics on the center console, along with C7.R logo sill-plate covers and floor mats. Another nice touch is the autographs of Corvette Racing team manager Doug Fehan and drivers Oliver Gavin, Antonio Garcia, Ron Fellows, Jan Magnussen, and Tommy Milner on the dash.
The car left the Bowling Green factory already nicely equipped to the tune of a $93,730 MRSP after nearly $14,000 worth of options. The car features competition sport seats, carbon-fiber dual roof panels, carbon-fiber trim, Magnetic Ride Control, performance data and video recorder with navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control, and the 2LZ package that added heated and ventilated seats, power seat adjustment with position memory, auto dimming mirrors, a premium audio system, and an anti-theft system.
This Z06 – delivered new at Hoffman Chevrolet Cadillac in Hagerstown, Maryland – has since covered just 11,000 miles, with 5,000 of those added by the current owner. The new owner will receive a window sticker, build sheet, car cover, Corvette Racing shirts, and a clean Carfax.
