2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition

2016 Corvette C7.R Special Edition (left) with Competition C7.R
The GM product team had accomplished a lot for the 2014 and 2015 Corvette model years, having introduced the totally new C7 and, for 2015, the supercar class Z06. For 2016 they are taking a bit of a breather, with two minor upgrades and four special edition models.

MSRP: $111,400 plus $995 delivery. It is important to note that the C7.R Special Edition does not offer any performance upgrades over a similarly equipped Z06. The horsepower, suspension and weight is exactly the same.

With no major changes for 2016, the Corvette Stingray (MSRP: $56,395) continued to be THE "bang for the buck" King of the performance car world. When equipped with the Z51 option (adding $5,000 to the MSRP) it is still a track day star and competitive with others costing twice the price.

2016 Corvette Updates:

2016 Corvette Front Curb Camera Front Curb Cameras made their debut on the 2016 Corvette. Part of the 2LT/3LT/2LZ/3LZ packages, there were two mounted at the right and left sides of the front grill. Their function was to assist the driver during critical parking maneuvers similar to a backup camera. The screen offers three different views, the left and right cameras and a third composite image of the two cameras with guide (or warning) lines to assist parking. Their function was appreciated since from inside the C7 Corvette it is difficult to gauge where the massive hood ended.
Another novel feature introduced in 2016: "power-cinching" (self-latching) hatch or trunk lid that self closed the last small bit of travel, eliminating the requirement that owners slam the hatch or trunk.

All 2016 Corvettes have the smaller flat bottomed steering wheel introduced in the 2015 Corvette Z06.

New exterior colors include Corvette Racing Yellow Tintcoat (replacing Velocity Yellow) and Long Beach Red Metallic Tintcoat (replacing Crystal Red Tintcoat).

New standard wheel finishes: silver, black, black machined and chrome.

RPO B92 Carbon Fiber hood with visible weave section - a portion of the hood (from the hood vent exit to the windshield) is exposed Carbon Fiber with a "Jake" decal.
