The Japan-exclusive “Admiral Blue” Grand Sport isn’t the only limited edition Corvette that Chevrolet has on tap. 2018 marks the 65th anniversary of the beloved American sports car and, to celebrate, General Motors has created the new C7 Corvette Carbon 65. Available for both the aforementioned Grand Sport and the Z06, the new trim — as the name suggests — is all about carbon fiber additions. In this case, the material takes care of the likes of the rear spoiler while the exterior gets a Ceramic Matrix Metallic paint job. As for the interior, it comes swathed in black suede with blue, red, or yellow stitching to go along with carbon fiber trim and a matching steering wheel. Finally, special edition wheels also grace each model, as do custom stripes and “Carbon 65” graphics.

The C7 Corvette Carbon 65 is due out this summer and will be limited to just 650 units, each of which will cost $15,000 USD more than the standard Grand Sport and Z06.
