Part of the excitement at the C5/C6 Corvette Birthday Bash last week, as we said, was the revealing of the 2012 Centennial Edition Corvettes. We saw one each in Grand Sport, Z06, and ZR1 trim.
Today, we want to focus in on what is unique to this model, as you begin to see them, early in the 2012 production. The package will feature an exclusive Carbon Flash Metallic exterior color (available only through this package); Chevrolet Centennial Satin Black painted wheels with special center cap logo; Satin Black graphics; Magnetic Selective Ride Control; red brake calipers; and Chevrolet Centennial badging. The interior features an Ebony interior (leather wrapped on 4LT, 3LZ and 3ZR trim levels) with suede accents and red stitching; leather-appointed seats with embossed logo, suede inserts and red stitching; steering wheel badge and a special interior trim plate.
As we have said before, if you want a black 2012 Corvette, it will have to be one of these special Centennial Edition units, as the color Black we are used to seeing will not appear on any 2012 model!
