  • Details of Last C7 Ever Made

    WOW! What a great car that would be, and as CorvetteBlogger noted, if the rumors are true, that would be the last Corvette ever made with a manual transmission.

    Chevy Shares New Details of the Final C7 Corvette That Will Be Auctioned for Charity at Barrett-Jackson

    Chevrolet previously announced that the final C7 Corvette, a Z06 Coupe, will be auctioned for charity at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction on June 28th in Connecticut. Now we have some additional details about how Chevrolet will build and equip the final Corvette of the C7 generation.



    The last C7 Corvette will be a Black Z06 Coupe and is scheduled to be built with the 3LZ trim package. The Z07 Performance Package adds Brembo’s carbon ceramic brakes, the level 3 aerodynamics, and Michelin’s Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. We also know that the Z06 will be equipped with a 7-speed manual transmission and if rumors are true, it could be the last Corvette ever to have a manual transmission. Inside the Z06, the interior will feature a two-tone red and black leather-wrapped package with a suede-wrapped steering wheel.


    The sale of the final C7 Corvette will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which supports the nation’s first responders and catastrophically injured service members. The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation was established in 2002 to honor the memory of Stephen Tiller, a New York City firefighter who lost his life on 9/11. The goal of the Foundation is to continue Stephen’s legacy through its programs that support our nation’s first responders and catastrophically injured military service members.

    “We’re honored that General Motors chose our Northeast Auction to sell this historic Corvette in support of the vitally important Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Where one chapter ends, another begins. The sale of this final production C7 Corvette Z06 will be the opportunity of a lifetime to own a piece of automotive history. While it marks the end of an era, it also ushers in the beginning of the next generation of America’s favorite sports car.”


    The Black Corvette Z06 that is shown here in pictures and that will be on the Barrett-Jackson auction block is only a representation of the final Corvette that will be built at a later time. We estimate that C7 Corvette production could run through September and so far the Corvette Team has been tight-lipped about its plans for winding down the 7th generation as it prepares to start production of the C8 Corvettes perhaps by the end of the year.


    “General Motors and Chevrolet are proud to honor and support the brave men and women of our Armed Forces,” said Steve Hill, GM vice president of U.S. sales and service. “With the proceeds from the auction of this Corvette, we’ll offer additional financial support for our most severely wounded veterans through the Building For America’s Bravest program.”


    Barrett-Jackson’s Northeast Sale takes place from June 26-29th at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Southeastern Connecticut. For more details and information on Barrett-Jackson’s Northeast auction, click here.

      Beautiful car!!
      So maybe in about 50 years my Z06/Z07 manual tranny C7 will be worth what I paid for it ?

        Just why I replaced my 2015 M7 and was lucky with likely the last 2018 M7 off the line made on January 25th 2018. The C7 Z06 is best Corvette ever produced.

          Wonder what the C8 will be priced at we know from the past the trim levels and options can add a big number to the bottom line . Interesting if the loaded C8 meets or exceeds the prices of the Z06.

            As they joked at the Bash: "If you can outbid Mr. Hendrick then you can own the last C7".

              Oh, I can outbid him. Actually paying for my bid would be a problem, but bidding is easy.

                Any historical precedent for the final example of a generation being more valuable by a significant amount?

                  I am unaware of any of those last of a generation changing hands at least not in the last 20 years .

                    Bingo I was able to get about the very last 2018 M7 and a 1 off car to boot with 18k off and 0 percent interest.

                      At one time we were speculating on a final round of C7 builds. Looks like that isn't happening. However this raises the question of what will be happening in the factory in the June-December timeframe? Five full months at least.

                        C7 production is going to continue through at least August IMO. Then I guess two months of plant changeover. Perhaps C8’s start to be built in November.

                          Rereading that piece again, I'm thinking that the auction will not feature the actual last C7 and the successful bidder will have to wait a few months to get the last one. Make sense?

                            You are exactly right, that the auction grants the successful bidder the right to later get/own the last built C7 (whose build date has not yet been specified by GM).
