• Chevrolet announces the 2008 Corvette 427 Special Edition Z06, a limited-production model that pays homage to the big-block Stingray models of the mid-1960s. The 427 designation refers to the cubic-inch displacement for the highest-performance engines offered in 1966 and '67  and is also the cubic-inch equivalent of the Z06's 7.0L LS7 small-block V-8. The Corvette 427 features a Crystal Red Tintcoat exterior paint with stinger-style graphics and 427 hood badges, new-style chrome wheels, body-color rear spoiler and door handles, and a dark titanium leather-appointed interior. The 2008 Corvette 427 Special Edition Z06 will make its first public appearance at the Cleveland Auto Show on February 22, 2008. (Photo by Alan Poizner for General Motors) X08SN_SN045 (United States)
