 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Edition

Painted in gorgeous Supersonic Blue and loaded with every option, this Z06 is a piece of Corvette history.

When scrolling through the various Corvettes for Sale sections, we frequently come across cars that grab our attention, but few vehicles for sale blow us away like this 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Edition. With only 252 cars built with this package for the 2011 model year, it is extremely rare while the long list of optional features make it that much more desirable to a collector or Chevy fan who wants to tear up the road and the track.

This Z06 Carbon Edition was posted to the forum by “ReddyZ06” and if you have been dreaming of having one of these rare LS7 cars, here is your chance.

The Introduction

When the OP first posted his stunning 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Edition for sale, he included a handful of images and the following information.

This low mileage highly optioned car came delivered in Supersonic Blue Metallic paint and has factory black headlamp bezels, outside mirrors, and wheels.

It has the 505 horsepower LS7 V8 and 6 speed manual transmission. The carbon ceramic brakes are remarkable.

This car with serial number 189 has the Z06 Carbon Special Edition Package which stickered at $15,705. The Z06 Carbon Fiber Package was an additional $3,995. The 3LZ Package another $7,170. MSRP came to $102,425.

This nearly factory original Carbon Edition Z06 has less than 15,000 miles, in fact it currently has exactly 14,000. The major changes from original delivery have been oil drain plugs, visor decal covers, and replace most fluids. Currently the GMPP Major Guard Protection Plan is good thru 7/23/2020 or 76,000 miles. The paperwork reads like it can be transferred for $50 to a new owner.

The interior and exterior are in excellent condition, the interior mirror does have some silver delamination however, I will attach a photograph.

The OP also posted several replies to his original post, adding more pictures and replying to the complements being paid to his Corvette.

All Pros, One Con

As you can see in the pictures here, this Corvette Z06 Carbon Edition looks flawless from the outside, with the pictures looking just like the General Motors media images from when this package was introduced.

It has all of the key upgrades, such as the Magnetic Ride Control suspension system, the carbon ceramic rotors under big Brembo calipers and Michelin Pilot PS2 rubber on the outside with all of the premium bells-and-buzzers on the inside. Pretty much anything that you could want from a Corvette Carbon Edition is included in this car, leaving buyers wanting nothing and at $60,000, it is well below the original sticker price of $102,000.

The only downside to this car is that the rear view mirror is delaminating, so the right side of the reflective surface looks a little funky, but that problem is easy to fix. Everything else looks perfect and while $60,000 is not small chunk of change, it is a solid price for such a rare Corvette.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
