The Corvette is renowned for offering world-beating levels of performance at a price point that significantly undercuts the competition, and GM Authority is happy to report this won’t change with the 2023 Corvette Z06.
Chevy just confirmed full pricing for the 2023 Corvette Z06, with the targa-topped Coupe in the entry-level 1LZ trim starting at an approachable $106,395, including the mandatory destination freight charge. Pricing for the Coupe in the better-equipped 2LZ trim will start at $115,595, while the Coupe in the range-topping 3LZ trim will start at $120,245.
As expected, the Convertible is slightly more expensive. The 2023 Corvette Z06 Convertible in the entry 1LZ trim will start at $113,895, while the 2LZ trim will start at $122,595 and the 3LZ trim at $127,245. The order books for the 2023 Corvette Z06 in both Coupe and Convertible body styles will open up on July 28th, 2022.
GM also confirmed the price of some of the Z06’s options. The Z07 Performance Package will start at $8,995, adding FE7 suspension, Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, Michelin Pilot Cup 2R ZP tires, and underbody strakes. This package will also require the customer to order either the Visible Carbon or Carbon Flash Painted aerodynamics packages, however, which are priced from $10,495 and $8,495, respectively. Customers who select these options can then go one step further and add the optional Carbon Fiber Wheels, which are also available with either a Visible Carbon Fiber or Carbon Flash Painted finish. The Visible Carbon wheels are priced from $11,995, while the Carbon Flash painted wheels are slightly less at $9,995.
Chevy rightly points out that the 2023 Corvette Z06 significantly undercuts rivals like the Audi R8, Porsche 911 GT3, Lamborghini Huracán Evo, Ferrari F8 Tributo and McLaren 720S, whilst offering similar levels of performance. GM’s new flat-plane crank 5.5L LT6 V8 engine comes standard in the mid-engine supercar, pumping out 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, with power sent to the rear wheels by way of an upgraded dual-clutch eight-speed automatic transmission. GM claims the supercar can hustle from zero to 60 mph in roughly 2.8 seconds and can reach a top speed of at least 188 mph.
Production of the 2023 Corvette Z06 will commence at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky later this year.
