Endurance racing and the Corvette don't go together. Or do they?
There may not be a prettier Vette out there than the recently announced Z06 C7.R Edition. As its name suggests, this special edition is modeled after the C7.R endurance racer. To that end it sports the Corvette’s yellow racing livery, although it is also available in black. It can be had in either coupe or convertible and automatic or manual. The engine was left untouched, which isn’t an issue as the 6.2-liter LT4 V8 is no slouch as this recent video shows.
Although the engine was left stock the C7.R Edition does get the Z07 Performance Package. This includes Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires, carbon ceramic brakes and adjustable aerodynamic bits at the front and back. The carbon fiber hood is also new and looks especially fetching. Only 500 of these bad boys will be made and Chevrolet has yet to announce pricing. Then again, if you have to ask you probably can’t afford it.
