General Motors has announced details for the reveal of the all-new 2023 Corvette Z06. The go-faster mid-engine Chevy Corvette will break cover on Tuesday, October 26th, at 12 p.m. EDT with a new “feature film” that will stream live over the Internet. Following the film, Chevy will host a panel discussion “featuring a variety of individuals who will bring a unique perspective to this new supercar,” according to the automaker.
General Motors shared the first official photo of the 2023 Corvette Z06 late last month, giving us a clear, camo-free look at the sports car’s exterior styling. Finished in Silver Flare Metallic, the Chevy Corvette Z06 shown in the new image reveals the go-faster model’s C8.R-inspired front fascia and larger intakes, as well as a black-painted “wishbone” trim element added to the side air intake.
The 2023 Corvette Z06 makes its presence known with a wide stance and flared-out wheel arches, while in the corners, the new exterior image shows off twin seven-spoke alloy wheels. In the rear, expect to find quad exhaust tips mounted centrally in the rear bumper.
Also expect the new 2023 Corvette Z06 to offer the optional Z07 Performance Package, which includes new aero like a massive rear wing, which GM Authority was the first to report, as well as a new front splitter, dive planes, stickier tires, and lighter wheels.
As GM Authority reported previously, the 2023 Corvette Z06 will feature the naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine, which is expected to throw down roughly 615 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. What’s more, the LT6 will come equipped with a flat-plane crank, dual overhead cams, and head-spinning 9,000-rpm redline, not to mention an exotic-sounding exhaust note befitting of a world-beating monster like the new Z06. Output is routed to the rear wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
In addition to a Coupe model, the 2023 Corvette Z06 will also be available as a Convertible, as GM Authority captured late last month.
