Chevy Sends Off Corvette C7 In Europe With Z06 And Grand Sport ‘Final Edition’

A all-new mid-engine Corvette is coming our way, but before it makes its big premiere, Chevrolet decided to bid farewell to the C7 with the Z06 and Grand Sport ‘Final Edition’.

Already up for grabs in certain European markets, it comes in Sebring Orange Tintcoat and Ceramic Matrix Gray metallic colors, with a with carbon fiber front splitter and side skirts as well as black wheels covered Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and Brembo carbon ceramic brakes as standard. Moreover, the tacky ‘Final Edition’ stickers on the sills ensure everyone knows that’s the last C7 variant before the car gets replaced by the all-new C8.

Inside, the Corvette Final Edition gets Competition sports seats, Black Nappa leather, suede microfiber, a high-gloss carbon fiber trim package and a Performance Data Recorder.

Ordering the Z07 package for the Z06 and Grand Sport models will get buyers the 7-speed manual transmission, whereas the 8-speed auto is only available in the Grand Sport, with or without the Z07 package.

“Thanks to its unique combination of racing technology, excellent driving dynamics, unmistakable style and high everyday suitability, the Corvette has grown to be the ultimate sports car icon”, said Cadillac and Chevrolet Performance Cars Europe Vice President, Felix Weller. “With this special edition, we aim to honor the current generation, which has once more contributed greatly to the history of the Corvette series.”

The Corvette Final Edition Grand Sport starts at €116,500 ($133,286) in Germany and 130,000 Francs ($130,494/€114,052) in Switzerland, while the Z06 costs €139,500 ($159,600) and 153,200 ($153,782/€134,405) respectively.

    Great value in Europe for a used standard C7 Vette”. ALSO, because no one really bought one you never see one, unlike an R8 or AMG GT….

    I love these C7’s! Especially the GS and the Z06. I wish the small rear ZR1 wing was available for the GS and Z06. The wickerbill rear spoiler is ssooooo inefficient. Lots of aerodynamic drag for the downforce it provides. I could do without the tacky “Final Edition” sticker on the side too. I really hope Corvette becomes a brand and produces at least two models of Corvette, front engine rear drive and mid engine.
