2004 Corvette Z06 Z16 Commemorative Edition 6,327 miles LS6 Lemans Blue As New

CMC is proud to have taken in this 2004 Chevrolet Corvette Z-06 Z-16 "24 Hours of Le Mans" Commemorative Edition. With only 6,327 Actual miles from, this special Z16 Z06 is like a new Corvette in every way. This is a true collectors car to buy and hold.

2004 marked the final year for the C-5 production, so Chevrolet decided to save the best to the last with the 24 Hours of Le Mans Commemorative Edition.

During the 2004 model year, a 24 Hours of Le Mans Commemorative Edition package (RPO's Z15 & Z16) were offered as an option for all three C5 models in celebration of the C5-R "1-2" in-class finishes at Le Mans. The package consisted of a special paint color ("Le Mans Blue Metallic"); shale two-tone leather interior (coupés and convertibles only); and wide, silver-and-red stripes optionally applied down the center of the car (Z06 only). Commemorative Edition convertibles received a shale-colored soft top, and the Z06 version (dubbed the "Z16" after its RPO for the Le Mans Commemorative Edition) received a carbon fiber hood as a further weight-reduction measure. Special commemorative badging, headrest embroidery, and brightly polished wheel rims (a first on the Z06) with unique centercaps completed the package.

The 2004 Z-16 Z-06 Commemorative Edition was equipped with a carbon fiber hood, saving an additional 10 pounds of weight. This was the very first mass produced car in the world to use carbon fiber body panels. Other unique characteristics of the Z-16 (Commemorative Edition Z06) are the polished aluminum wheels, special paint color and striping, and commemorative-edition badging and wheel center caps. The Z-16 also received shock damping tuning for improved handling.

Chevrolet engineered several modifications for the Z-06 to best use the increased power. Starting with the most structurally rigid body style, the hardtop or FRC, new components included: uprated FE4 suspension, larger wheels and tires, revised gearing ratios, and functional brake cooling ducts. The Z-06 is 38 pounds lighter than a standard C-5 hardtop thanks to weight-saving measures such as a titanium exhaust, thinner glass, lighter wheel, non-EMT tires, reduced sound proofing, fixed rear radio aerial, and a lighter battery. Starting with the 2002 model year, the LS-6 engine output was increased to 405 hp (302 kW) due to a larger CFM air intake, stiffer valve springs, lighter sodium filled valves and more aggressive camshaft lift and timing.

Factory stock performance figures for the 405 hp (302 kW) version of the Z-06 include an acceleration time from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds and 12.4 seconds in the quarter mile.

Our particular car is one I would classify as a "keeper". The car is free of any damage or defects. The car is flawless in every way. Original paint, interior, glass, etc still show as new. The car runs and drives better then any C-5 that I have driven before. The drivers seat is tight, there is zero wind noise,rattles or squeak, just a purely enjoyable driving experience. The LS-6 is very smooth and has power across the whole power band. The clutch still feels new and is the nicest feeling clutch that I have felt in some time. Step on the gas and it is guaranteed to put a grin on your face. The car is very impressive for the age of the car and feel a lot more power then 405HP. The original interior still smells and looks new. The steering wheel, door panel, and sill plates do not have any scuff marks on them. This is car was preserved and climate control stored by an elderly Corvette collector. The car was used for parades and Corvette Car shows only. He passed away and I purchased the car from wife. This Z-06 has been cared for in an extraordinary way so I have been pampering this car as well.

Ownership history is very important and this Z-16 Z-06 has had only two owners from new. The first owner stored the car and seldom drove the car. He sold the car in 2006 to the second owner with only 1,023 Actual Miles on the car. The second owner held owner ship until 2019. He was an elderly man and apparently he was very particular about his Corvettes. He passed away and that is when I bought the car. The stellar Carfax history also shows this car to have a clean ownership history.

Documentation on this special car is also very important and this car comes with the owners manual, Z-06 pen,Corvette Z-06 Leather owners booklet, Original Window Sticker, Original Body Build sheet, Corvette Owner instructional CD new in the wrapper, Goodyear Limited Warranty booklet, 2004 Warranty Assistance Book, Hajek tire air compressor, Dealership Order Invoice, production numbers breakdown sheet, Dealer color brochure new in the wrapper, and the 2004 Corvette Commerative Edition photo showing the lineage of the C-5R race car and the Z-16 Z-06. This particular model was the street version of the C5-R race car.
