The 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06’s main party piece is the naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine, which is rated at a maximum of 670 horsepower 8,400 rpm and 460 pound-feet of torque at 6,300 rpm. The V8 can spin up to a redline of 8,600 rpm. Output is routed to the rear axle by way of the GM 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
There are two body styles listed on the configurator, including a Coupe and a Convertible. Trim levels include the 1LZ, 2LZ, and 3LZ. Notable upgrades include the Z07 Performance Package, which throws in Z07-specific suspension with Magnetic Selective Ride Control, carbon ceramic brakes, and new carbon fiber aero bits.
Pricing starts at $106,695, including destination freight charge (DFC).

Unfortunately, while the 2023 Corvette Z06 can be specced as desired on the official online configurator, the new Corvette Z06 is no longer available to order. As GM Authority reported in August, 2023 Corvette Z06 production was heavily constrained as a result of supplier constraints. Since then, supplier setbacks have deteriorated even further, with GM no longer accepting new sold orders for the new Corvette Z06 as of early September. Both the Coupe and Convertible body style are affected.
It’s unclear at this time if GM will once again take new 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 sold orders some time in the future, or if the automaker will instead wait for the 2024 model year to reopen order books. It’s also unknown exactly how many units of the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 GM plans to build. That said, it’s likely that many registered 2023 model year orders will be pushed back to the 2024 model year as a result of the recent setbacks.
