To ease some of the waiting period for the Corvette C8, Chevrolet has been coming out with more special edition versions of the C7. The Ultimate Corvette C7’s are here.
Special features, for the Final Edition C7, will include Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, a performance data recorder, and chassis calibration optimized for race tracks. A Z07 package is also available for some versions, which adds additional aerodynamics and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires. The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 is an ultra-high performance sport summer tire that offers excellent handling ability in summer track driving conditions.
A carbon fiber exterior aerodynamics package adds a visible carbon fiber front splitter and side skirts, and the exterior can be finished in either Sebring Orange Tintcoat Metallic or Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic. Inside the Final Edition, the interior has also received a slew of upgrades such as a carbon fiber trim package and black Nappa leather. The seat surfaces, steering wheel, gearshift, instrument panel, doors, and center console come in suede microfiber.
Europe, Germany, and Switzerland are getting a new Final Edition of the coupe versions of the Grand Sport and Z06 Corvette C7 (nicknamed “the ultimate Corvette C7”) will be available in Germany and Switzerland.
“Thanks to its unique combination of racing technology, excellent driving dynamics, unmistakable style, and high everyday suitability the Corvette has grown to be the ultimate sports car icon,” said Chevrolet Europe’s director of performance cars, Felix Weller. “With this special edition, we aim to honor the current generation, which has once more contributed greatly to the history of the Corvette series.”
