The 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 debuts the next level of performance for the mid-engine C8, offering a new V8 powerplant, widebody styling, and a whole lot more compared to the Chevy Corvette C8 Stingray. Now, GM Authority has learned that the 2023 Corvette Z06 Carbon Aero packages are currently under heavy constraint.
According to GM Authority sources, the Carbon Aero packages offered for the 2023 Corvette Z06 will be constrained at just three percent for the foreseeable future. That means only three percent of GM’s initial production plans will be built.
Although GM’s original production plans are currently not known, the three-percent constraint obviously means supply will be extremely limited. Unfortunately, this constraint will also affect the Z07 Performance Package, which requires that buyers equip one of the two factory Carbon Aero packages. As a result, the Z07 Performance Package will also be under heavy constraint.
The affected Carbon Aero packages offered for the 2023 Corvette Z06 include RPO code T0F, specifically the Carbon fiber, Carbon Flash-painted package, which bundles the high-wing, dive planes, and Carbon Flash-painted carbon ground effects (RPO code CFZ), as well as RPO code T0G, specifically the Visible carbon fiber package, which bundles the high-wing, dive planes and visible carbon ground effects (RPO code CFV).
As GM Authority covered previously, production of the 2023 Corvette Z06 in general is also heavily constrained. Per GM Authority sources, 2023 Corvette Z06 production will be constrained to just 10 percent of accepted orders due to what the automaker refers to as a plant restriction. For the time being, this constraint is applied for the entire 2023 model year, although it is possible that the constraint may change over time.
As a reminder, production of the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 is set to begin at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky next month.
Mounted just behind the cabin, the new Corvette Z06 draws motivation from the naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine, rated at 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Under the body panels is the GM Y2 platform.
