Corvette C8 News

There has been some talk about the future possibility of a Corvette C8, and some of the specifics one might expect on it:

The Corvette C8 is still a ways off, but a new report claims to have the goods on the future sports car. While GM’s piggy bank was a little too shallow to foot the bill for a mid-engine C7 Corvette, the 8th iteration of America’s sports car will reported make the transition.

As if the shift to mid-engine wasn’t enough, the C8 will allegedly ditch the Corvette’s traditional V8 in favor of a more fuel-efficient twin-turbo V6. While the switch to a V6 powerplant will probably mark the end of high-horsepower Corvette models, it doesn’t mean the Vette will go soft. The C8 is slated to shrink in size in weight, meaning performance should be equal to – if not better – than today’s car.

GM Previews New Windshield Technology

GM, pioneers of HUD, have been working with several universities to create a new head-up display (HUD) designed to superimpose the windshield with informational graphics.  This new technology is called enhanced vision system.  According to an article on Left Lane:

Using an array of vehicle sensors and cameras, the new system can detect edge road lines in foggy conditions and then display the edge lines on the vehicle’s entire windshield via transparent phosphors and compact lasers. If visibility is further reduced by rain, snow or other conditions, the system can be paired with nigh vision, essentially transforming the entire windshield into an enhanced display.

GM Introduces the 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition

A recent GM press release highlighted the 2011 Corvette Z06 Limited Edition:

DETROIT -- When the 2006 Corvette Z06 was introduced, it represented the closest connection to the Corvette race cars ever. The 2009 Corvette ZR1 closed the gap between racing and production even further. This year, Corvette continues its tradition of track-to-street technology transfer with the 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition.

“Designed to further incorporate technology developed through racing, the Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition is a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Corvette’s first race in the 24 Hours of LeMans,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet General Manager. “With a limited production of 500 units, this car is a must-have for the true Corvette collector and driving enthusiast.”

The Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition is another example of the expanded Corvette line-up. Five years ago, customers had the choice of a Corvette coupe or convertible. With the addition of the Z06, Grand Sport coupe and convertible and ZR1, Corvette enthusiasts now have more choices than ever.

“For track use, the Z06 Carbon is the best balanced Corvette yet. It combines the lightweight and naturally-aspirated Z06 engine with the road-holding and braking of the ZR1,” said Tadge Juechter, Corvette Chief Engineer. “For technical tracks like Laguna Seca, the Z06 Carbon could shave up to three seconds off the Z06 lap time.”

This limited edition Z06 will boast Brembo carbon ceramic brakes with specific dark gray metallic calipers. These powerful brakes were first introduced on the ZR1. Black 20-spoke 19-inch front/20-inch rear wheels complement the car’s Michelin PS2 tires. Other mechanical features include Magnetic Selective Ride Control for the first time on the Z06 and enhanced cooling. The car also features a special carbon pattern engine cover.

The Corvette Z06 Carbon will be available in two colors: Inferno Orange and the all-new Supersonic Blue. Black headlamps and mirrors, a ZR1-style body color spoiler, body color door handles, carbon fiber raised hood, and black carbon fiber rockers and splitter enhance the Z06’s dynamic design and reduce mass and aerodynamic lift. For track events, customers can also install the Euro-styled racing numbers that come with each car.

The Z06 Carbon’s ebony leather and suede interior is complemented by blue or orange seat stitching to match the exterior color chosen. Other features include a unique steering wheel emblem, sill plate and logoed headrest. The suede used on the steering wheel, shifter, seat inserts, armrests and doors add to the luxury of this limited edition Z06.

An optional Z07 performance package that includes the mechanical upgrades introduced on the Z06 Carbon can be added to a regular 2011 Z06. This package also includes Competition Gray 20-spoke wheels and all the chassis and cooling upgrades.

The CFZ Z06 carbon fiber package includes black carbon fiber rockers, splitter and roof panel with the full-width body color spoiler. It can also be purchased with or without the Z07 package on regular Z06 models.

The 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition, as well as the new Z07 and CFZ Z06 option packages will be available in late summer.
