Corvette Of The Day: 2004 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Commemorative Edition
The 2004 Commemorative Edition package was created to honor Corvette’s consecutive class triumphs at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Culminating seven years of production, it served as a remarkable transition to the new C6 Corvette for 2005.
Available in coupe, convertible, and Z06 variants, the Commemorative Edition primarily emphasized visual allure over power enhancements. Its focal point was the Le Mans paint scheme, echoing the colors of the victorious C5-R race cars from 2003 and 2004.
Interiors were adorned in a special Shale hue, except for the Z06 variant, which boasted a sleek black interior. Each interior featured distinctive embroidery, with convertibles showcasing a silver emblem on the interior waterfall.
Special attention was given to the Commemorative Edition’s carbon fiber hoods, meticulously designed to minimize distortion. Z06 models benefited from refined chassis and equipment tuning, enhancing their dynamic drivability—a fact underscored by their performance on tracks worldwide.
