The 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 C7.R edition has been listed by a Illinois-based Chevrolet dealer Castle Chevrolet North for a ‘buy it now’ price of $115,000 on eBay.
According to a report by GM Authority the listing on eBay is not for an already built unit but for a unit that has been allocated to the dealership by the company. The Corvette Z06 C7.R edition will be built to order hence the listing is offering the car with a convertible or a hard top version, including a variety of transmissions, colours and other specifications.
The report goes on to add that the price of $115,000 which could be the manufacturer’s suggested retail price is strange given that only 500 exclusive units of the Z06 C7.R edition will be produced. Also aftermarket tuners like Callaway and Lingenfelter offer solutions for the Corvette that could be considered more economical for the increase in performance, making it hard to justify the price of the Z06 C7.R edition.
Nevertheless the 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 C7.R edition will be seen as an attractive option for Corvette enthusiasts as it offers a factory performance upgrade. Some of the features that stand out are visible carbon-fibre components, adjustable aerodynamics and a sequential VIN number among others. The history of the Chevrolet Corvette includes racing as an integral part and the new C7.R edition aims to carry forward the tradition.
