2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 C7 R Edition Walk Around and Driving Video
When the new ‘C7’ Corvette went on sale for a starting price of $51,995 in 2014, one Road & Track editor called it the “finest combination of track pace and back-road aplomb any manufacturer has ever offered for that price." It garnered similar praise for its completely redesigned, driver-centric interior, modern styling, and, significantly, its new ‘LT1’ small-block V8. In 2015, the Stingray was joined by the Z06 model; the first to come with a supercharger – and its accompanying whine – directly from the factory. The following year saw the introduction of a limited ‘C7.R Edition’ Z06, a “road-going, track-capable homage to the Corvette Racing C7.R racecars.” Available in Corvette Racing Yellow or Black, C7.R treatment included the Z07 Performance Package as well as a visible carbon fiber hood section. Production of the C7 Corvette ceased in 2019, and with the introduction of the mid-engined ‘C8’ in the same year, became the final front-engined iteration of the classic American muscle car.
This car is part of the Retro Motors Collection, which comprises over 30 cars largely from the 1950s through today, with a focus on American muscle and high-powered European sports cars. View the full collection here.
