This 2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 coupe is #218 of 505 examples produced to commemorate the 427ci V8 engine option first offered on the 1966 Corvette, and power is provided by a 7.0-liter LS7 V8 mated to a six-speed manual transaxle. All Limited Edition examples are finished in Crystal Red Tintcoat with a black central stripe over Dark Titanium leather, and each is equipped with the 3LZ Preferred Equipment package, Spider-design wheels, and unique interior trim. Additional equipment includes a limited-slip differential, dual-zone automatic climate control, a head-up display, and an optional stereo with navigation, a CD player, and a Bose audio system.

In addition to being finished in Crystal Red Tintcoat (89U) with a black central body stripe, the 427 Limited Edition is equipped with “427” hood badges as well as a body-color rear lip spoiler and painted door handle trim. The seller states the front bumper, hood, front fenders.

Chrome-finished Spider-design wheels measuring 18″ in diameter up front and 19″ out back were included in the 427 Limited Edition package, and they are mounted with 275/35 front and 325/30 rear Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires. Stopping power is provided by red-finished and Corvette-branded calipers paired with aftermarket dimpled and slotted rotors as well as ceramic brake pads.

The six-way power-adjustable bucket seats are trimmed in Dark Titanium leather with gray inserts and 427-embroidered headrests, while red carbon fiber-style trim adorns the center stack and console. Amenities include dual-zone automatic climate control, 427-branded floor mats, memory settings, and an optional touchscreen stereo with navigation, a CD player, and a Bose audio system.
Wil Cooksey Jr., who was the Corvette plant manager from 1993 through 2008, chose the 427 Limited Edition's color scheme and also signed and numbered the underside of the armrest console lid for each of the 505 examples.
The leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel frames a 7k-rpm tachometer, a 200-mph speedometer, and auxiliary gauges. The digital odometer indicates 27,573 miles.
The 7.0-liter LS7 V8 features dry-sump lubrication, an oil cooler, a magnesium-alloy engine cradle, and titanium-alloy connecting rods, and factory output was rated at 505 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential with a 3.42:1 final drive.
