The special edition Corvette Z06 was made to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Vette first competing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1960. The 2011 Z06 Carbon Limited Edition, will cost $90,960.

It will be limited to only 500 units and will go on sale later this summer. Customers will have to choose from just two color options: Inferno Orange and the all-new Supersonic Blue. Ah … the race car style numbering on the car’s flanks are optional also…

Essentially the Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited combines the 7.0-liter LS7 V-8 from the Z06 with the suspension and brake package of the ZR1.

Some of its special items include Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, black wheels measuring 19 inches up front and 20 inches in the rear and wrapped with Michelin PS2 tires, Magnetic Selective Ride Control active suspension, and a host of carbon-fiber accessories.

Of course, those that don’t manage to get one of these limited edition models can put together most of the car by opting for the carbon fiber and Z07 packages.
