Corvette Of The Day: 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Centennial Special Edition

The one significant exception to this was the introduction of a Centennial Edition Corvette, which was available to consumers in all variants of the car, including the base coupe and convertible, as well as the Grand Sport, Z06 and the ZR1.

The Centennial Edition came finished exclusively in a Carbon Flash Metallic finish with satin-black graphics.  Special badging graphics signifying Chevrolet’s racing history, including an image of Louis Chevrolet on the B-pillars, were added as accents to the cars finish – additional graphics were added to the wheel center caps and on the center on the steering wheel.  The historic Corvette crossed flags badge contained a small adaptation.

For 2012, the number “100” replaced the traditional fluer-de-lis symbol, but only on cars built with the Centennial Edition package.  The wheels were also finished in a satin black, and were sized specifically to the respective Corvette models – 18-inch front and 19-inch rear for the Coupe, Convertible and Grand Sport, and 19-inch front and 20-inch rears for the Z06 and ZR1 models.  All models also received red brake calipers.

This 2012 Chevrolet Corvette is one of 195 Z06 Centennial Special Edition models produced to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Chevrolet. It is finished in Carbon Flash Metallic over Ebony leather and is equipped with a 7.0-liter LS7 V8 capable of producing 505 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
