The 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 will debut Tuesday, October 26th, at 12 p.m. EDT, making its official introduction in a new film streamed live over the internet. The best place to watch the new Corvette Z06 reveal is right here on GM Authority.
The reveal video, which is titled “Putting the World on Notice,” will be 30 minutes long and will feature pro basketball player and gold medalist Devin Booker, plus YouTube superstar and performance driver Emelia Hartford. Following the conclusion of the new 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 reveal video, Chevrolet will host a panel discussion with key players from the new mid-engine sports car’s development, providing further insights into what makes it tick.
Just last week, General Motors dropped a fresh teaser video giving us a few new tidbits and hints as to what expect in the forthcoming reveal. Among these was the suggestion that the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 will rev to a 8,600 rpm, while the teaser video also gave us a brief glimpse of the upcoming 2023 Corvette Z06 Convertible.
Mounted just behind the cabin, the new go-faster C8 Vette will mount the naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine, which is expected to produce upwards of 615 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. Based on the V8 mounted in Corvette C8.R race car, standout features of the Z06’s LT6 engine include a flat-plane crank, dual overhead cams, and a very exotic-sounding exhaust note.
Late in September, General Motors released the first official image of the new 2023 Corvette Z06, giving us a clear view of the vehicle’s styling, including the revised front fascia and wider stance. The image also shows off some new split-spoke wheels, finished in in silver and housing large red brake calipers. The sides of the new Corvette Z06 are adorned by revised “wishbone” side intake trim, while the rear end will rock a center-mounted exhaust treatment with quad exhaust tips.
