In 2016 Chevrolet built 500 very special 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R
Editions. They were a road-going, track-capable homage to the
Corvette Racing C7.R race cars. They were as near as a LeMans
Series race car you could ever buy from the factory, no matter what
They were offered in Corvette Racing's signature yellow livery, or black with coordinated exterior and interior accents and only 500 examples of the C7.R Edition will be built. They all included the Z07 Performance Package with carbon ceramic brakes, as well as a specially serialized vehicle identification number.
Most sold at a "Dealer Premium" and there are very few that will ever be for sale, if you can find one. Well search no more as we have one of the lowest known mileage C7.R's anywhere here at Skyway Motors. And it is a rare Black model of which only 140 were made!
"Corvette Racing's legacy and technology were significant influences on the development of the Corvette Z06 and the new C7.R Edition honors the direct link between the racecar and the production model," said Harlan Charles, Corvette product and marketing manager. "It also advances Chevrolet's plan to offer special-edition models that offer a unique, personal ownership experiences, which become important parts of Corvette's legacy."
