2004 was a big year for the Corvette. Not only was the C5 ending a
triumphant seven-year run as the car that brought this icon back to
life, but also the 'Vette had back-to-back victories at the 24
Hours of Le Mans. There was a limited run of Commemorative Edition
cars to celebrate all of these accomplishments, and Corvette people
know the Z06 version is the rarest and has exclusive features that
make it the most desirable. So to find a 2004 Chevrolet Corvette
Z06 Commemorative Edition coupe that's a low-mileage example means
you've found an instant collectible.
There is only one way to get a C5 in this beautiful code 19L LeMans
Blue Metallic. It was part of the 2004 Commemorative Edition (Z16),
and only 2,025 examples of Z06 coupes ever received this treatment.
That's why we are so happy to see the car looking so complete and
correct. This has averaged about 3k miles annually. So it tells you
this one has been enjoyed for not much more than special drives. In
fact, the factory paint has even been ceramic coated and protective
film has been added to strategic places. So it maximizes the
radiance and minimizes the signs of it hitting the road. While
you're looking over the car, don't forget to check out the special
details. The Z06 polished wheels have a special center cap for the
Commemorative Edition. There's a special badge on the hood that
reminds everyone of the C5's dominance at the 24 Hours of LeMans.
In fact, take some extra time looking at the hood, because it shows
off an exclusive feature that will really let these cars hold their
value. The Z06 was made with the lighter fixed roof coupe (FRC)
body style. But the Commemorative Edition Z06s had their hoods done
in lightweight carbon fiber. They were the only ones to do it, and
so they show it off with an exclusive silver and red stripe package
that features the carbon fiber weave as the dividing line.
Inside is exactly what you expect from a special Corvette - a
loaded interior that's comfortable for two. Lower mileage means the
full dark presentation remains looking clean and comfortable.
There's even newer padding in the seats. You'll never get tired of
watching the gauges do their dance every time you start the engine.
But don't forget, there's a head-up display so you never have to
take your eyes off the road during performance driving. But more
than just track-focused, this car offers plenty of luxuries, such
as dual-zone climate control, power windows, power locks, keyless
entry, power mirrors, power seats, cruise control, dual airbags,
ABS, and the trunk is large enough for a week's worth of luggage.
You'll notice a few nice upgrades, like the shifter knob and a
Kenwood touchscreen stereo that runs the backup camera and
Bluetooth. It makes for an even better driver, but you'll also be
happy to know the stock pieces come with the sale.
The red engine covers are the unmistakable look of the LS6 motor.
Chevrolet had these specially constructed to handle the big power
they got out of this 5.7-liter fuel-injected V8. It has a clean
presentation, but always keeps the style of a car you're going to
want to drive. After all, the point of loving a Z06 is being about
to occasionally release the 405-horsepower juggernaut. And you have
complete control over all the power and thunder the V8 brings
thanks to the six-speed manual transmission. As a true competition
machine, the Z06 also received its own suspension upgrade package
to make the fully independent suspension perform at its best during
high speeds. Keeping everything in control is also the rack &
pinion power steering, a large four-wheel power disc brake package,
and new Continental ExtremeContact performance tires added around
2k miles ago.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, a reproduction
buildsheet, a reproduction window sticker, the factory air intake,
and more. Corvettes that are this collectible and this powerful are
rarely this obtainable. So hurry up before the market doubles the
price. Call today!!!
