The interior has Jet Black competition sport seats with sueded inserts and blue stitching, and a carbon fiber steering wheel rim.

It has changes to 16 pages compared to the previous edition.
Tough act to follow
Introduced in 1978 with 60 pages a bit over 6-inches tall, the Corvette Black Book has grown over the years to 160 pages a full ten inches in height. Its beauty, like the car itself, is in its evolution. These are pocket-sized marvels with thousands of Corvette facts, options and option codes, exterior and interior colors and codes, production figures, serial numbers for body, engine, and component parts, and a compilation of each model’s unique details. The prices included are "window sticker" prices (the Corvette Black Book is not a guide to current values). By categorizing all this in a precise year-to-year format, the Corvette Black Book puts phenomenal expertise at your fingertips.
Improved yet again
In the Corvette Black Book, production quantities trail by one year. So in addition to 2018 introductory info, the 2018 edition includes 2017 quantities and running production changes. It’s all part of an endless effort to maintain the Corvette Black Book’s reputation for detail and accuracy. And the book is designed so that you can find what you're searching for quickly.
No one’s perfect, but after four decades of attention to detail, the Corvette Black Book has become the enthusiast’s bible. Next time you visit a top quality Corvette restoration shop, see if there isn’t a you-know-what lying around. Notice which book is stuffed into enthusiasts’ pockets at Corvette events around the world.
