Final C6 Corvette Rolls into History

Industry News

It was far from perfect, but the outgoing C6 Corvette proudly carried on the legacy of its nameplate for nine years.

It’s had a good run, but the final C6 Corvette has just rolled off the production line in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Sure, all of the attention lately has been going to the new Stingray, but the outgoing C6 is still one hell of a sports car, spawning variants such as the Z06 and the supercar-killing ZR1. The final C6 was a 427 Convertible Collector Edition outfitted with the 60th Anniversary design package, which consists of an Arctic White exterior and a Blue Diamond leather-wrapped interior with suede-microfiber accents.

The car’s 7.0-liter V8 was hand-assembled by Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter himself, and the car will soon reside at General Motor’s Heritage Center museum. All told, the Bowling Green plant produced 215,100 C6 Corvettes during its nine year lifespan. Less than 30 minutes after it was completed, plant workers began the retooling the factory to prepare the assembly lines for the Stingray. Factory employees will return to work later this month when they will learn everything there is to know about the C7's production.
