Model Year Highlights
  • * New for 2004 is a special carbon fiber composite hood used on the Commemorative Edition Z06 only. This is the first time that carbon fiber has been used as original equipment for a painted exterior panel by a major North American original equipment manufacturer.
    The hood weighs 9.3 kg/20.5 lb, a 34 percent weight reduction, compared to the production fiberglass SMC hood. The painted, Class A outer skin, only 1.2 mm/0.048 inch thick, is produced via autoclave from unidirectional epoxy prepreg that cures in only ten minutes at 150oC/300oF, supplied by Toray Composites America Inc. (Tacoma, Wash., U.S.A.). The outer skin is bonded to a hybrid carbon fiber/low-density fiberglass SMC inner panel.The hoods are produced for GM by MacLean Quality Compsites (West Jordan, Utah, U.S.A.).

*: As per Corvette Quarterly, Winter 2003, pg. 33: "...Z18 is made just for Europe...only about 150 will be produced. The Z18 is actually an interesting mixture of U.S. Commemorative Editon coupe (Z15) and Z06 (Z16) specs. With Le Mans Blue Metallic paint and stripes that mimic this year's C5-R race cars, its outward appearance is similar to the American Commemorative Edition coupe. But the hood panel is carbon fiber like on the Z06, and inside are Z06 seats uniquely embroidered with C5 logos. A standard LS1 engine delivers 350hp through a manual six-speed transmission. For enthusiastic drivers, the greatest benefit of this low-volume collectable is its handling. The Z18 also sports Z06 brake calipers, Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car tires and an upgraded suspension (a modified FE4 system) that was developed on the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife in Germany."
