For only the second time in Chevrolet history, a Corvette is now available in a Drivers Series special edition. Actually, there’s four, all Grand Sports designed in collaboration with Corvette Racing team drivers Milner, Gavin, Magnussen and Garcia. The idea came from Chevrolet exterior design manager Kirk Bennion, a racing fan who was also at the Rolex 24, according to Corvette Marketing Manager Todd Christensen.

The 2018 Corvette Z06 is arguably one of the best Corvette platforms available on the market today. While not as powerful as the 2019 Corvette ZR1, the Z06 platform propelled the seventh-generation Corvette from sports-car to super-car territory. The C7 Z06 platform was co-developed with the C7.R race car. It is no surprise then that the car, which handles much like its race car counterpart, should come from that same pedigree.
As the 2018 model year approaches, the Chevrolet Corvette is about to reach another important milestone – its 65th anniversary! The Corvette, which for the past six-plus decades has been recognized as the nation’s most popular sports car, made its debut in Flint, Michigan on June 30, 1953. To commemorate the car’s 65th anniversary milestone, Chevrolet is introducing the Corvette Carbon 65 Edition as an available option on the 2018 Grand Sport 3LT and Z06 3LZ models.
The C7 Z06 enters supercar territory with race-proven design, advanced technologies and world-class performance. With track-focused Z07 performance package, 2015 Corvette Z06 delivers faster lap times than 2013 Corvette ZR1. It is the first Corvette Z06 to offer supercharged engine, paddle-shift automatic transmission and removable roof panel for coupes, and convertible model. New LT4 supercharged 6.2L V-8 SAE-certified at 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque.
