The Centennial Edition, which we talked about earlier this month, isn’t the only goodie the 2012 Model Year will bring to the Corvette range. We must thank a dealer, as well as Inside Line for finding out that General Motors will offer a beefed-up ZR1 Performance Package, along with an Ultimate Performance Pack for Z06 customers.
The ZR1 performance kit brings new rims to the game, which use a cup-like design (these will be finished in black), come in a 19-inch size and are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup rubber. The front axle will get a pair of 19-inch ones, while the rear one will be fitted with 20-inch ones. And this is not all, as the pack will also offer a special six-speed manual transmission.
As for the Z06 Performance Package, this will include Performance Traction Management, a feature that was previously only available on the ZR1, Magnetic Selective Ride Control, carbon-ceramic brakes supplied by Brembo, as well as the aforementioned wheel-tire combination.
The standard 2012 Corvette will receive a new exterior finish called Carlisie Blue, as well as a series of interior modifications, including suede seat inserts and a sports steering wheel.
