Chevy To Drop Final Edition Corvette C7s As The Wait For The C8 Continues

Chevrolet could debut their new mid-engine Corvette, the C8, in the coming months. But they appear keen on milking the C7 for all it's worth and are set to drop the "Final Edition" as the wait continues, in the form of the Z06 and Grand Sport, per Motor1.com.

The cars, which are already available on the European market, come in Sebring Orange Tincoat and Matrix Gray metallic colors. They also don a carbon fiber front splitter and side skirts, plus standard black wheels and Brembo carbon ceramic brakes. The Grand Sport bears black hash marks on the fenders.

Corvette's Final Edition is also fitted with competition sports seats, Black Nappa leather, suede microfiber, a high-gloss carbon fiber trim package, and a Performance Data Recorder.

“Thanks to its unique combination of racing technology, excellent driving dynamics, unmistakable style and high everyday suitability, the Corvette has grown to be the ultimate sports car icon," Cadillac and Chevrolet Performance Cars Europe Vice President, Felix Weller, says.

“With this special edition, we aim to honor the current generation, which has once more contributed greatly to the history of the Corvette series.”

There were questions over whether the Final Edition would be the end for the C7, but Chevy has since responded to an email from Motor1.com to explain their plans.

"We are selling regular Stingray, Grand Sport and Z06 versions in Europe alongside the final edition which is simply the last and limited special edition of the C7 in Europe," René Kreis, Head of Public Relations, Cadillac & Chevrolet Performance Cars Europe said.

The Corvette Final Edition Grand Sport starts at at €116,500 ($133,286) in Germany and 130,000 Francs ($130,494/€114,052) in Switzerland. The Z06, meanwhile, is going for €139,500 ($159,600) and 153,200 ($153,782/€134,405) respectively.

As for the upcoming C8, it could be still a ways off. But footage of the car going through cold-weather testing in the U.S surfaced recently, prompting the hope that it could debut in a few months.
