2007 Ron Fellows Championship Z06

After all these years, Chevrolet has finally given us a white Z06. And it comes with the longest name ever given to a Corvette: 2007 Chevrolet Ron Fellows ALMS GT1 Champion Corvette Z06. Try saying that fast 10 times.

Marking his championship tenure with Corvette Racing’s GT1-class domination in the ALMS, Corvette racing living legend Ron Fellows is celebrated with a specially prepared 2007 Corvette Z06 production model. All are distinguished by Arctic White paint (including the door handles) that is accented with a racing-style fender stripe and Ron Fellows’ autograph.

The front fender graphics are reminiscent of the identifying graphics of the Corvette GT1 race car. They feature double Monterey Red Metallic stripes with Machine Silver borders and Fellows’ autograph in a contrasting Victory Red shade, along with the callouts of the championship years when he was at the wheel. There is also a maple leaf logo motif incorporated with the graphics, a nod to Fellows’ Canadian heritage. Indeed, the red-over-white color scheme of the car’s paint and graphics represents Canada’s colors.

This special Corvette Z06 is the first signed special edition in Corvette’s 54-year history, and is the first Arctic White Z06 ever offered. Only 399 are planned for production: approximately 300 for the United States, 33 for Canada and 66 for other export markets.

Exterior cues include a full-width racing spoiler and a big CORVETTE windshield banner. Additional standard equipment includes the well-equipped 2LZ package and chrome wheels. Special interior appointments include:

  • Red seats, center console, door panels and instrument panel
  • Red, leather-covered armrest with a Corvette-signature “cross flags” logo that is hand-signed and numbered by Ron Fellows
  • Tech pattern interior trim (translation: fake carbon fiber)

The Ron Fellows ALMS GT1 Champion Corvette Z06 will be available this spring. It carries an MSRP of $77,500, including destination. OnStar and the navigation system are the only options; and when equipped with them, the price is $79,945. That makes this Z06 $7,500 more than the standard-fare Z06. Still, Chevrolet shouldn’t have any trouble selling them.

Interested buyers will want to pick up the custom made PRS commemorate Z06 Guitar as well. After all, you can’t have a Corvette Z06 without a matching guitar!

    I absolutely love Corvettes but this one just doesn’t do it for me. I love the white, but I find the front fender graphics a bit cheesy for my tastes. I’m not sure why companies keep trying to tie in guitars and cars so closely… The guitar never comes out looking right.

      I just don’t like American cars plain and simple.. it’s unfortunate but what can I do eh?

      Besides i just always feel that the small details are lacking in them.

    I love the car, Great design.

    But the white is killing it.

      No, the white isn’t killing it, the white is making it look hot. 😉

    2. Derek says:

      I think the white gives it a good touch. However, I think there should be a little more red. Unfortunately I am neither a designer or professional car lover, but I like white and red.

    Wow hot car! 🙂

  4. Leftblank says:

    Surely a hot car, the side mirrors look a bit out of place though, couldn’t they have designed those a bit better?

    John, Are you going to get a Z06????

    We all know you want one – when are you going to bite the bullet and purchase one of these 7.0L monsters?

    That’s one post I am really looking forward to reading.

    This car looks amazing.. although I’m not a fan of American cars! 😉

    This is like a Hot Wheels Car comapred to the Bugatti Veryon. Just a toy.

  8. Nate W. says:

    Sweet car, John…given that it has a Canadian motif, I think you should pick one up!

  9. Shawn Knight says:

    Yeah, its great and all… but doesn’t compare to the modded Z06 from the TTZ a few years ago… extra deep wheel wells, anyone?

    I’d probably end up selling the guitar installing a PS2 and play Guitar Hero in it all day.
