With production limited to just 500 examples, the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon combines the road-holding and braking of the ZR1 with the naturally-aspirated engine of the Z06.

The Corvette Z06 Carbon features Brembo carbon ceramic brakes with specific dark gray metallic calipers from the ZR1 and black 20-spoke 19-inch front/20-inch rear wheels wrapped in Michelin PS2 rubber.

It will also include Magnetic Selective Ride Control for the first time on the Z06 along with enhanced cooling and a special carbon pattern engine cover.

Customers will be able to choose between two exclusive exterior finishes - Inferno Orange and the all-new Supersonic Blue.

The outside of the Corvette Z06 Carbon has received the full ZR1 makeover with black headlamps and mirrors, a ZR1-style body color spoiler, body color door handles, carbon fiber raised hood, and black carbon fiber rockers and splitter.

Inside, the Corvette Z06 Carbon is finished in a combination of leather and suede complemented by blue or orange seat stitching to match the exterior color chosen.

Other features include a unique steering wheel emblem, sill plate and logoed headrest with suede used on the steering wheel, shifter, seat inserts, armrests and doors.

For buyers that miss out on a genuine Corvette Z06 Carbon, an optional Z07 performance package that includes the mechanical upgrades introduced on the Z06 Carbon can be added to a regular 2011 Z06.

The 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition adds to the Z06, Grand Sport coupe and convertible and ZR1 models already on offer in the Corvette line-up.
