Corvette Special Editions arrived here at the Detroit Bureau last week just a couple days before the latest round of C8 spy shots hit the interwebs. With what appears to be a new generation of Corvette arriving sooner rather than later, I got to thinking about what we’d remember most about the C7. Aside from the insane ZR1 it’ll probably be one of the many special editions offered since 2014.

The 500 Premiere Edition coupes wore Laguna Blue paint while the 550 Premier Edition Convertibles wore Lime Rock Green.

Here’s how it works. The first step consists of an employee sticking a template made of thin plastic film onto the painted component. In the case of the Audi Q2, that’s the side blade. After that, a specially developed system sprays the component under … [Read more...] about Audi Puts Partial Matting Into Mass Production With The Q2 #2 Special Edition
