After having been pushed back several times, production of the 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Edition has finally been set to begin in January or February next year, according to Corvetteblogger.com. Chevrolet announced last March that it would begin to be offered by the end of 2010. Production was to start in late summer for the track ready special and was expected to arrive at dealerships shortly after.

But then production was postponed for November and it was rescheduled yet again. Corvetteblogger also said that the model will have a base price of $90,960 and it can go as high as $99,925.

This means that the Carbon Edition falls between the standard Z06 at $74,305 and the flagship ZR1 at $111,100. When it comes to performance, the Carbon Edition also seems to be right in the middle too.

The Z06 Carbon Edition features the same 505hp 7-liter V8 engine that powers the standard Z06. The Carbon Edition offers a superior handling and braking capability than the Standard Z06.

The Carbon Edition isn’t lighter but it has been fitted with the carbon brakes and magnetic ride suspension featured on the higher-end ZR1. When it comes to the exterior, the Carbon Edition has a carbon fiber hood, rockers and front splitter. On the rear, a body-colored spoiler is standard.

A carbon fiber roof panel is also available. The interior features plenty of suede upholstery on the seating surface, steering wheel and shifter. In addition, it is complimented by either blue or orange contrasting stitching. [via corvetteblogger]
