The C7.R Replica's convertible's roof not only has integrated stripes woven in its fabric, but also has "C7.R Edition" also in its top. Here is a Replica convertible in black.

When Chevrolet first introduced the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition at the Corvette Museum’s Bash in April, they naturally showed the Coupe version in new Corvette Racing Yellow. But if you read the release notes (or watched our video), you would know that the limited-edition salute to Corvette Racing’s C7.R was also available in Convertible form, and yes Batman, it comes in Black.

At the 2015 Bloomington Gold Corvette show at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Chevrolet showed off their first Black Convertible Z06 C7.R Edition. Thanks to these photos from Travis Raczynski and our friend Corvette Conti who brought these to our attention, we’re able to share the dark side of the new limited edition Corvette.

The Z06 C7.R Edition is the latest collectible Corvette from Chevrolet. The 650 hp super car is limited to just 500 examples and will have its own VIN sequence. Most buyers will probably check the box for the Coupe version in Corvette yellow, but the black convertible is an intriguing configuration as well. No matter the body style or color, the C7.R Edition Z06 come with black Z06 wheels with the yellow stripe and yellow brake calipers, the new B92 Visible Carbon Fiber hood, Spectra Gray Grille and Vents, and a unique C7.R graphics package which includes the hood stripe with Jake.

At Bloomington Gold, the Black Z06 Corvette C7.R Edition gave us the first look at how the racing stripes are integrated onto the convertible top. Much like 2013’s 60th anniversary 427 Edition where the racing stripes were integrated into the fabric of the convertible top, the C7.R Edition also has the racing stripe in the fabric as well as well as the words “C7.R Edition”.

I had my salesman pull-up a picture of a C6(I think a GS) that had the strip through the top like that. He hadn't seen it befor. John
I like it.

The 2013 Anniversary edition Corvette convertible's were the first in the automotive industry to offer tops with built in fabric stripes. Have not heard one complaint about their longevity, and the two I recently saw, still looked great.
