The 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 12-13 will mark the 50th anniversary of Corvette’s first participation in the world’s most prestigious sports car race.
Chevrolet will kick off the celebration this Friday by bringing together historic Corvette Le Mans race cars from the 1960s, and their iconic drivers, with the championship-winning Corvette Racing team at Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway.
The special edition Z06 that will be built will come with a Z07 performance package, a CFZ black carbon fiber package plus some bits from the ZR1. A unique feature will be the side view mirrors painted in Cyber Gray instead of the Black that comes on the Carbon edition. The car will be officially revealed a this Saturday’s ALMS race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, one week before the Corvette racing team leaves to France to contest the 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 12-13 2010.
