Latest model: Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition 2011
When the 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was presented, it represented the closest connection to the Chevrolet Corvette race vehicles ever. The 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 closed the gap between racing and production even further. In 2010, Chevrolet Corvette continues its tradition of track-to-street technology transfer with the 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition.

Chevrolet Corvette details:
Developed to further incorporate technology designed via racing, the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition is a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Chevrolet Corvette's first race in the 24 Hours of Lemans, explained Jim Campbell, Chevrolet Basic Manager. With a limited production of 500 units, this vehicle is a must-have for the true Chevrolet Corvette collector and driving enthusiast.
The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition is another example of the expanded Chevrolet Corvette line-up. Five years ago, buyers had the choice of a Chevrolet Corvette coupe or convertible. With the addition of the Z06, Grand Sport coupe and convertible and ZR1, Chevrolet Corvette enthusiasts now have more choices than ever.
For track use, the Chevy Z06 Carbon is the best balanced Chevrolet Corvette yet. It features the lightweight and naturally-aspirated Z06 motor with the road-holding and braking of the ZR1, explained Tadge Juechter, Chevrolet Corvette Chief Engineer. For technical tracks like Laguna Seca, the Z06 Carbon could shave up to three seconds off the Z06 lap time.
