• For 2010 Corvette the Z06 returns in Torch Red and all Z06 models are now offered in all eight standard exterior colors. • Launch control is standard with all manual-transmission models. • Revised six-speed automatic paddle shift control now includes a “push and hold” feature that enables an easier return to the automatic mode. • Side air bags are standard on all models. • New interior console trim in Orbit and Gunmetal patterns. • Optional crossed-flags logo embroidery for seats. • Convertible models include the tall rear spoiler from the Z06. • Cashmere interior offered on Z06, ZR1 – with Cashmere custom leather-wrapped interior offered later in the model year. • The Z06 3LZ package now includes power sport seats and power passenger seats. The new launch control system allows full-throttle start performance for all traction situations. In the competitive mode, the system will hold a calculated engine speed while the driver inputs full throttle. The task of modulating engine torque via the clutch is turned over to the computer which modulates engine torque 100 times a second. This allows the driver to dump the clutch at full speed and not worry about losing traction!
