The 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was already a track-focused machine, but a select few really understood the difference that comes from the ultra-rare and ultra-hot C7.R Convertible. And if you missed your chance at this supercharged speed machine, then this ultra-low mileage example is your special second chance at something basically brand new. This Corvette Z06 was an instant legend for the way it took the already capable C7 and made a more powerful and track-ready car. In fact, it really was only a few degrees away from the track-only widebody Corvette Racing Team car. And the C7.R basically closed that gap. The heart of the upgrade is the carbon fiber ground effects package. This may sound like an add-on when you read the press release, but it was downplaying the fully-engineered air-bending lightweight lit that makes this car stick to the tarmac and shaves real time off of each lap. While it makes for a competition-grade car, we cant even tell you if this example ever left the garage. Theres only 24 miles on the odometer, which is basically delivery miles. So the factory black paint truly has a new car showroom level of shine. And you want to see this one under bright lights or the sunshine because there are amazing details that only really show for those paying attention. For example, did you see how the carbon fiber hood now has the special Corvette Racing Jake in the racing stripes? Another piece thats a bit more obvious is the set of special 19-inch black wheels with yellow accent strip and matching brake calipers. Its easy to download all the info on this car anywhere from the internet because the back was a big deal when it came out only a few years ago. Its not only the engineering that makes this an instant classic but also the rarity. There were only 650 examples made for the world, and when you factor in the color and transmission, the rarity is said to be one of only 22! While the C7.R wanted to be as hardcore as possible for the racetrack, Chevrolet did not take anything away from the interior. Instead, this is a luxurious 3LZ trim convertible. Its a supple mix of Alcantara and leather that looks terrific with bold yellow contrast stitching on the seats, dash, center console, door panels, and steering wheel. So while the optional racing seats are designed to keep you planted while attacking the corners, its also quite comfy to power adjust to your ideal driving position. Its part of an excellent drivers package that includes a grippy sports setting wheel, paddle shifters, and your gauges include a display screen that you can choose to highlight everything from your huge speed to the g-force of the corners. And the Head-up display means never taking your eyes off the road. More than just track-ready, there are tons of desirable luxury features like power windows, power locks, keyless entry/ignition, dual airbags, side airbags, power steering, and cruise control. The touchscreen infotainment system is filled with options, so it includes satellite navigation, Bluetooth, satellite radio, a backup camera, Apple Carplay, and a premium audio system by Bose. Its the kind of crystal clear audio that lets you hear your favorite music even when the top is down and youre approaching track day speeds. In fact, the modern dual-zone climate control and heated/ventilated seats mean you and your passenger can keep an individual level of comfort even with the top neatly stowed under the integrated tonneau. The engine bay is packed with 6.2 liters of supercharged V8 power. The LT4 motor was rated at 650 horsepower, which cemented its supercar status. Plus, the eight-speed automatic transmission is designed to be an excellent overdrive cruiser for when you want it, and the paddle shifting option is there to shift faster than a manual gearbox when you need it. While it seems no one has taken this one to the racetrack, we do know from other cars that it is a blacktop stunner. Magnetic ride control means the suspension can handle everyday commuting, and with the turn of a knob, it can become a track-focused machine that sticks better than glue. This is a complete setup down to the performance Brembo carbon ceramic four-wheel disc brake package and Michelin Sport Cup 2 performance tires. The sale comes complete with the original window sticker and factory buildsheet to make sure you have the right paperwork whenever you want to show or auction this very rare drop-top. After all, the C7.R is quite a special car, and when you have one of the rarest configurations around, theres a lot of admiration/value when it has this museum-level of preservation. So if youre a true collector, call today!
