I just put a deposit down on an 02 Torch Red with a modified torch red interior. Car is due to hit the dealer early next week.
Anyone know what the modified torch red interior looks like or have an opinion of it? Is it like the torch red/black of 01? Not sure if that is too much red for me, but it was available!!!! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

As you know I am very lucky to get to see all of these cars many times over. I have to say a M/Y Z06 with Mod-Red int. is IMHO the big daddy of them all. Long live the King. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

I've seen it in person. I had the choice between three Z06s. A Torch Red or a Black with the mod interior, and a Torch Red with the standard black interior. I went the standard black interior. Just personal taste. In years to come, however, the mod red will be the more rare and more sought after option. Oddly enough, Z06 owners seem to like this interior more than most. In 2001 29% of Z06s had the mod interior vs only 5% of convertibles and 4% of coupes.

The color combo just shouts proformance. It shoud be in a Z06 more than a
coupe or Vert. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Coupes and convertibles can only order the full red interior and not the mod red. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif

Carl,

I wasn't aware that RPO 70I was different in Coupes and Verts, but it makes sense since only the Z06 has a logo stitched into the headrests. Thanks for the clarification.

Subdriver- I just saw kevinlionel's red/mod red '01 Z06 at lunch today and the Blk/Red is outstanding! I also ordered this combo on my Blk. '02 that I am picking up next Friday. I did see my car last week going thru the plant and the colors were awesome. I also have Red Lloyd mats just waiting to be slipped into their new home.

You will not be disappointed /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Tom,
Your interior has a lot more red than the one pictured at:
http://www.chevrolet.com/corvette/cor12_z06/interior/index.htm
Is that all stock?
Thanks for all the inputs. I was a little reluctant for all that red, but so far everyone has recommended the mod red.

I added the carpet and a few other odds and ends.

I like the Mod Torch Red interior myself. That's why I ordered it. I think it goes well with a black exterior, and also well with Quicksilver (my favorite), and obviously with a Torch Red.

Each to their own, but it seems a bit much with a MY. Haven't seen one yet, but Mod TR interior might look good in a new Electron Blue.

According to a local dealer I talked to about this, it is NOT a popular interior, but then again what do they know. Besides Rick seems to approve. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Was at the factory 2 years ago, when the first 2000 Mil Yellow cars came down the line. The line was stopped when a MY with red interior appeared. Everyone on the line thought it had do be a mistake. Guys on the line dubbed it the "Ronald McDonald" car. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Bob,
Thanks for the pics, they really helped. Was wondering if the carpet was red too.
Thanks for all the inputs guys. I am still going with the mod torch red at this point and the car is due at the dealer this week. I can't sleep! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif
