I don’t know of a way to duplicate it nor did I find anything on the internet that would indicate there is a reasonable way to order one. I agree with ssrcobra the dealership would have more ability to find one (if it's available) than an individual. If you’re correct, and it was stolen, what a despicable act.

If it’s any help, you can tell what the car’s build number is by the last 3 digits on the VIN.

I’ll be watching the post and hope you are able to find a replacement!

I think the dealer is the only way you will be able to get one of the numbered Carbon 65 dash emblems. It may take the dealer some work to get it.

Well, latest news is the dealer claims they can obtain a replacement (according to their source). I asked for a time estimate as I am reluctant/unwilling to accept car w/o it. Awaiting further information now. Too bad they can’t be obtained by owners thru parts, would be nice to have a spare or decorative/souvenir copy.

You should be unwilling imo. No way I'd take it until it was properly tagged with a replacement badge. The badge is part of the car's pedigree. That would be like me taking my new 350R without these gems:

I wasn't aware this page existed. Number 165 here. I'd add a pic but I never have luck with that.

Promised to keep you updated - FYI, the dealer was able to obtain the replacement dash trim emblem and I can not see any difference from the original. So, in theory, if any current owner wants to obtain a duplicate I should think it doable (for a price of course!) thru your friendly dealer.

On another matter, anyone happen to know the paint color/code to match the blue of the brake calipers?

Great to hear you got a replacement tag.

I've asked the question before about the code to match the calipers and didn't get the answer. If you post in the main section, perhaps someone will know. The reason I asked, is that I was considering blue striping the wheels and wanted to match the calipers. I found the calipers and the blue graphics on the fenders aren't the same shade of blue. I got some blue striping samples from a vendor and could match the calipers pretty closely, or I could match the blue graphics, but not both. So I decided not to stripe the wheels.

I've considered painting the inside of the red Z (on the Z06 emblem) blue, and painting the Red Z on the inside of the hood insert blue as well.

I'm interested to see if you come up with a color match on the calipers!

There are now only 3 M7 Carbon 65 Grand Sport coupes remaining unsold east of the Mississippi. After a pair of long drives from Baltimore to Pittsburgh and back in the span of four days, I picked mine up from Sun Chevrolet yesterday. They were great to work with and the general manager is a certifiable car guy. Traded our 2015 Grand Cherokee SRT Red Vapor Edition and 2009 Z06 pretty much straight up for the C7.



What an awesome car! I will always fondly remember the buttery smoothness and effortlessness of the LS7, but this car is so much better than the C6 in every other way.

Swore Id never buy a new Vette right before winter...

Congratulations! What a rare car you have!

I also had a 2015 Jeep SRT8 and a 2017 Camaro 1LE that I traded on a Camaro ZL1... Drove the ZL1 a year then traded on the Carbon 65. Couldn't be happier!

What number is yours? Mine is # 549
