2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition (1080p)
When the 2006 Corvette Z06 was introduced, it represented the closest
connection to the Corvette race cars ever. The 2009 Corvette ZR1 closed the
gap between racing and production even further. In 2010, Corvette continues
its tradition of track-to-street technology transfer with the 2011
Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition.
"Designed to further incorporate technology developed through racing, the
Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition is a tribute to the 50th
anniversary of Corvette's first race in the 24 Hours of LeMans," said Jim
Campbell, Chevrolet General Manager. "With a limited production of 500
units, this car is a must-have for the true Corvette collector and driving
The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition is another example of the
expanded Corvette line-up. Five years ago, customers had the choice of a
Corvette coupe or convertible. With the addition of the Z06, Grand Sport
coupe and convertible and ZR1, Corvette enthusiasts now have more choices
"For track use, the Chevy Z06 Carbon is the best balanced Corvette yet. It
combines the lightweight and naturally-aspirated Z06 engine with the
road-holding and braking of the ZR1," said Tadge Juechter, Corvette Chief
Engineer. "For technical tracks like Laguna Seca, the Z06 Carbon could
shave up to three seconds off the Z06 lap time."
TRUTH IN 24 II - Every Second Counts
The Le Mans 24 Hours are a legend. They are mentioned in the same breath as
the Rallye Monte Carlo, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500.
Since 1923, hundreds of thousands of motorsport enthusiasts have been
flocking to La Sarthe year by year to experience the one-day race. To watch
the protagonists in their sports cars battle for each place and each meter
of tarmac with bated breath. The drivers cover 4,800 kilometers in 24 hours
- almost as many as the Formula One racers in a whole year. Every Le Mans
winner has gone down in history. The three Audi drivers Andr‚Äö
Lotterer, Beno≈ít Tr‚Äöluyer and Marcel F‚Äûssler did so in a
special way with the triumph they achieved in 2011. The film TRUTH IN 24 II
documents the tenth and arguably most emotional triumph of the brand with
the four rings at this sports car classic. After two Audi R18 TDI cars have
retired following spectacular accidents, the remaining Audi fights a
dramatic battle for overall victory with the three Peugeot 908 cars ? which
the Audi trio ultimately decides in its favor with a narrow margin of 13
seconds. The film captures the entire drama of the fourth-narrowest running
of the Le Mans 24 Hours ? with intimate insights into the team of Audi
Sport and breath-taking pictures.
