The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 introduces a new level of performance for the eighth-generation Chevy Corvette C8, complete with all the trimmings, from the exterior style, the the greasy bits behind the cabin. Now, GM Authority has learned that the 2023 Corvette Z06 will also be available with optional Black Exhaust Tips.
At present, details on the new Black Exhaust Tips for the 2023 Corvette Z06 are still forthcoming, though they will be tagged with RPO code NGA. That said, we already know what the tips will look like thanks to the 2023 Corvette Z06 visualizer.
The upgraded tips appear to incorporate a polished black finish, complementing the black diffuser and rear bumper of the new Z06. The tips are once again centrally mounted, rather than mounted outboard, with a quartet of rounded outlets arranged in a single-file line.
Further customization options are available with the 2023 Corvette Z06 70th Anniversary Edition, which marks the Corvette’s 70th birthday with a long list of aesthetic enhancements for the interior and exterior.
The 2023 Corvette Z06 is also available with the Z07 Performance Package, which elevates the sports car with even more go-fast goodness. Highlights of the package include a full carbon fiber aero treatment with a larger front splitter, front-corner dive planes, a huge rear wing, and underbody strakes. The package also adds in unique FE7 suspension with specific Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 calibrations, Michelin Sport Cup 2 R ZP tires, larger carbon ceramic brakes, and optional carbon fiber wheels.
As a reminder, the 2023 Corvette Z06 is equipped with the naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine, which doles out 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Redline is set at 8,600 rpm. Under the aggressive widebody treatment is the GM Y2 architecture, while production takes place at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
