Z06 Corvette 70th Anniversary Edition!

So, there are more than a dozen all-new cars coming to the market in 2022.  But these are vehicles that have no significant history in the market.  Or they’re not just facelifts of previous vehicles.

And they’re ones that are about to try to start their own legacy of success.  Moreover, if they’re looking for a role model, there’s none better than the Chevrolet Corvette.

For example, the All-American Vette is in its 70th year of production.  And it’s a true pillar of the automotive world.  Therefore, to celebrate Chevrolet is bringing out a special Z06 Corvette 70th Anniversary edition.

What The Z06 Corvette 70th Anniversary Edition Includes

And, from nose to tail, the new Corvette will clearly differentiate its Anniversary edition from the rest of the fleet.

Externally, they’ll be distinguished with either Pearl White or Carbon Flash Metallic paint and unique Anniversary edition only wheels.

Plus, special 70th anniversary badging will accompany each car as will Edge Red brake calipers at each corner.  And inside the car, buyers will find the unique badging on the steering wheel, the seats, and the sill plates too.

Also, they’ll get custom 70th-anniversary luggage with its own red stitching to match the car.  But, Z06 buyers won’t be the only customers who get these special trim treatments.

Both the Z06 and the Stingray Get Special Editions

Because the Z06 Corvette 70th Anniversary Edition will be sold as a Corvette with the Z06 package.  And it will also make its way to the regular Stingray.

In fact, both the Z06 and the Stingray will each get their own individual sets of 70th-anniversary wheels.  Furthermore, Stingray owners actually get one special feature that Z06 owners won’t, and that comes in the form of a unique Edge Red engine cover.

At the same time, there’s no question about how special the Z06 is in its own right.  The car is so highly anticipated that Chevrolet auctioned off the very first of its kind, VIN 001 off at Barrett-Jackson.  And the hammer dropped at $3,600,000.00!

Proceeds of the sale will benefit Operation Homefront.  And that’s a national non-profit focused on building “strong, stable and secure military families who can thrive – not simply struggle to get by – in the communities they’ve worked hard to protect.”

The auction begins on January 29th and the car itself should sell for somewhere around $1,000,000. What a way to begin the celebration of the longest-running nameplate in American automotive history.
