2007 Z06 Two-Tone Interior


2007 Z06 Two Tone Interior


2007 Did not bring any major changes to Corvette, the coupe, convertible and Z06 models were available with no change in horsepower or transmission options. The manual was offered in all three models and the six speed transmission was offered in the coupe and convertible. The convertible was available with a manual or an optional automatic top. What is memorable about the 2007 model year is that over 40,000 Corvettes were sold (40,561). This is only the sixth time in Corvette history that over 40,000 Corvettes were sold and the first since the introduction of the C4 in 19084. Red Vettes accounted for 28.9% of total production split between Victory Red and Monterey Red. Black was still the dominant color. A new orange was introduced called Atomic Orange which replaced the Daytona Sunset Orange Metallic from 2005 and 2006. Two memorable limited production cars were introduced in 2007. The Arctic White Ron Fellows ALMS GT1 Z06, of which 399 were produced was the only white Z06 available. This included red stripes that contain the Canadian maple leaf and Ron's winning years to commerate his accomplishments in Corvette racing. 500 hundred Indy Pace Car replica convertibles were released in Atomic Orange as well. New options for 2007 included steering wheel mounted audio controls and a two tone seat option for the Z06 which included emboidered Z06 logos on the headrests.
