This is the Corvette C7 Final Edition. Sob
As the C7 'Vette gets ready to bow out, here's its racy European send-off
The Corvette C7 doesn’t have long for this world, with the C8 – and its possible mid-engined layout – due later this year. Any errant tears can be dried with this Final Edition, though.
On sale in the ‘Vette’s European markets, it’s available on coupe versions of both the Corvette Grand Sport (460bhp 6.2-litre V8) and Corvette Z06 (650bhp 6.2-litre V8).
Outside, you’ve a choice of Sebring Orange or Matrix Gray paint while inside, there’s lots of carbon trim and fancy stitching, alongside a new data logger.
It’s beneath the surface we’re most interested in, however, where Chevrolet has fitted Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, a new, circuit-focused suspension set-up and the option of Michelin Cup tyres to give you a fighting chance against those pesky 911 GT3s on trackdays.
Both come with a seven-speed manual as standard, while the Grand Sport offers an eight-speed automatic as an option. One we’d advise you don’t take.
Prices start at £92,000, representing a rise of about £8,000 over the cars the Final Edition’s based upon. And for the 460bhp Grand Sport, about the same ticket as a brand new, 444bhp Porsche 911 Carrera S. Which would you go for?
