2012 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Centennial Edition
2012 Chevrolet Centennial Edition Corvette Celebrates Racing Heritage
Z06 Centennial Edition to be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach sale
DETROIT -- Chevrolet, founded by a racing pioneer 100 years ago, celebrates
its performance heritage with the 2012 Chevrolet Centennial Edition
Corvette, which features a sleek black color scheme, unique design elements
and Corvette's trademark sports car technology.
The 2012 Centennial Edition package will be available on all Corvette
models -- including Grand Sport, Z06 and ZR1 -- starting this summer.
The special package was inspired by Chevrolet's racing-bred foundation,
which continues with Corvette's international racing excellence and
production sports car prominence.
"Racing and performance are the roots of Chevrolet, a tradition carried
forward today by Corvette," said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet
marketing. "The Centennial Edition not only celebrates our 100 years, it
once again pushes Corvette forward for a new generation of sports car
Chevrolet will auction a Corvette Z06 Centennial Edition at the
Barrett-Jackson collector car auction in West Palm Beach, Fla., on April 9,
with the proceeds to benefit the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric
Cancer. It will be the 100th 2012 Corvette off the assembly line, with a
vehicle identification number ending in "00100."
The Chevrolet Centennial Edition Corvette expresses racing heritage, but
does so with a sleek, modern, even sinister-looking appearance. The
Centennial Edition package comes exclusively in Carbon Flash Metallic, with
satin-black graphics and unique Centennial Satin Black wheels and red brake
calipers. The wheels are constructed of lightweight cast-spun aluminum and
include a thin red outline around the perimeter of its surface on the Z06.
The wheels are specific to the respective Corvette models, including
18-inch/19-inch for Coupe, Convertible and Grand Sport; and 19-inch/20-inch
for Z06 and ZR1.
Magnetic Selective Ride Control, the world's fastest-reacting suspension
and a technology advance initiated by Corvette, is included on all
Chevrolet Centennial Edition Corvette models.
