The 2023 Corvette Z06 is nearly here, slated to make its grand entrance via video next week. To build hype for upcoming debut, General Motors has released a fresh teaser video filled with enticing tidbits, including the murky reflection of the new 2023 Corvette Z06 Convertible.
In the latest 30-second teaser video, the new 2023 Corvette Z06 convertible makes a brief appearance around the 24-second mark. The video shows the new performance drop-top’s rear three-quarters view, including illuminated taillights and no roof. We also can see the Z06’s new split-seven-spoke wheels, which were revealed previously with an official image of the Coupe model last month.
Further details of the new go-faster Vette include the Convertible’s rear nacelles, a design feature also found on the Chevy Corvette C8 Stingray Convertible.
As GM Authority covered previously, the teaser video provides a few hints regarding the 2023 Corvette Z06’s engine spec as well, specifically the 8,600-rpm redline for the mid-mounted, naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine. With a flat-plane crank and sky-high rev limit, the new 2023 Corvette Z06 promises to provide not only an exhilarating driving experience, but also an exotic-sounding exhaust note. As well it should, considering the LT6 is based on the same V8 that powers the Corvette C8.R race car. Output is expected to be measured at around 615 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque.
Further highlights of the 2023 Corvette Z06 will include a widebody treatment and revised front fascia, while the profile features new “wishbone” side intake trim. In back, expect new spoilers and a center-mounted exhaust with quad tips.
We’ll undoubtedly have more to say about the all-new 2023 Corvette Z06 as its debut on October 26th approaches, so stay tuned.
