A new limited-edition 2023 Corvette Z06 70th Anniversary Edition model variant has potentially leaked online after a sharp-eyed Corvette fan found images of the vehicle hidden away in the online configurator tool.
A Corvette forum user shared a post this week titled ‘Corvette’s 70th Anniversary Edition Z06 Revealed’, which contained images and a description of the alleged new model variant that they found in Chevy’s 3D visualizer tool.
According to the post, the 2023 Corvette Z06 70th Anniversary Edition will be available in two exterior color combinations: White Pearl Metallic Tri-Coat with optional Satin Matrix Gray Stripes or Carbon Flash Metallic with optional Satin Black Metallic Stripes. All examples will also feature Edge Red brake calipers, special 70th Anniversary Wheel Center Caps, Carbon Flash painted wheels with Edge Red accent stripes and Carbon Flash painted mirrors.
Inside, these specially-prepared Vettes will come with White Ceramic upholstered GT2 seats with contrasting red accent stitching, red seat belts, a suede steering wheel, 70th Anniversary sill plates and 70th Anniversary logos stitched into the headrests. Completing the package is an Edge Red engine cover, a rear bumper protector/trunk cover and a custom luggage set with red stitching and 70th Anniversary logos.
Technical details on this alleged future model variant are not available, although it seems likely it will feature the same naturally aspirated 5.5L LT6 V8 engine as the standard C8 Corvette Z06, which produces 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. These leaked images also show the vehicle equipped with the Z07 Performance Package, which adds larger carbon ceramic brakes, Michelin Sport Cup 2 R ZP tires, FE7 suspension with specially tuned Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 dampers and a full carbon fiber aero package that produces 734 pounds of downforce at 186 mph.
Curiously, the 2023 Corvette Z06 visualizer tool has been taken offline, with the link now taking users to a General Motors landing page that requires employee login information to access. This lends some credibility to the rumors this apparent leak was pulled from the visualizer tool.
