2018 Corvette Carbon 65 Edition models

A celebrated American icon for coming up on 65 years, the Corvette has long been a perennial favorite among sports car fanatics. In honor of the hot rod’s big anniversary, Chevy is releasing a special Carbon 65 Edition package for select 2018 models, giving fans and collectors the opportunity to own a special and unique piece of ‘Vette history.

“Corvette is one of the most storied names in Chevrolet and sports car history, with a heritage few can match,” said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president Chevrolet Marketing. “The new Carbon 65 Edition honors that legacy, while offering customers another unique, special-edition model that personalizes the ownership experience.”

Available on both Grand Sport 3LT and Z06 3LZ models, the Carbon 65 Edition package blends the ‘Vette’s classic styling with contemporary carbon-fiber flair. These accessories include ground effects, hood and roof inserts (tonneau inserts on convertible models), and quarter intake ducts (coupe models).

The package is offered in a singular body color, Ceramic Matrix Gray, which juxtaposes nicely with black and blue detailing. The wheels—including the “Carbon” logo center caps—as well as the fender stripes, door graphics, mirror caps and carbon-fiber pieces are all black, while the “Carbon 65” logo hood decals and brake calipers stand out in bright blue. Convertible models also feature a blue top.

Inside, the cabin features black suede upholstery with blue stitching, competition sports seats, "Carbon 65” door sill plates, and carbon-fiber treatments throughout dashboard and steering wheel. In addition to the aesthetic changes, drivers will enjoy the Corvette’s 2018 tech upgrades including HD digital radio, a new rearview camera system, an enhanced head-up display and additional data channels on the optional performance data recorder.

Production of the Carbon 65 Edition is limited to 650 vehicles, so it’s important to act fast if you’re interested in having this special edition hot rod in your driveway! For more information, contact us or stop by our dealership on 6833 Telluride Dr.
