Remember the Corvette Z06 Carbon I told you about here? The first one went up for grabs at Barrett-Jackson, and a lot of wealthy buyers wanted to be the first kid on the block with the uber-exclusive (500 copies) ‘Vette. When the hammer dropped, the buyer had spent $297,000 to own the first Z06 Carbon. The model displayed at Barrett-Jackson was Supersonic Blue, but the buyer gets to choose his own color and witness the build. He can also take delivery at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
To refresh your memory, the Z06 Carbon is a cross between the Z06 and the ZR1. It uses the normally aspirated motor from the Z06, but borrows heavily from the ZR1’s chassis and suspension. It comes with carbon ceramic brakes and magnetic selective ride control, options not available on any other Z06 model. Chevy hasn’t announced pricing for the Carbon edition, but I suspect buyers 2 – 500 will pay quite a bit less than buyer 1, even with Additional Dealer Markup factored in.
