chevrolet’s ‘carbon 65 edition’ refinements include black-painted wheels with carbon logo center caps, and blue brake calipers, contrasting its unique exterior finish with unique fender stripes and door graphics. the ‘corvette’ now features a carbon-fiber hood section, ground effects, roof (on coupe models), tonneau inserts (on convertible models), plus a visible carbon-fiber spoiler, and quarter intake ducts (coupe). sat in the ‘competition’ sport seats, the driver’s interior is adorned with jet black suede with contrasting blue stitching, with carbon 65 edition sill plater. and reinforcing that this car is indeed clad in carbon-fiber, the entire interior is finished in a gloss-carbon fiber trim, while the driver grips a custom carbon-fiber steering wheel.
