The 2023 Corvette Z06 has amassed a huge following since Chevy first revealed the high performance machine. The unique, naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 engine has been the reason for a lot of that interest, since it’s the world’s most powerful naturally-aspirated V8 in a production car. Many fans, enthusiasts and observers have been salivating to see Chevy’s new track monster in all of its colors, and what we have for you here today is the C8 Z06 in the tasteful Red Mist hue.
GM Authority has captured these exclusive photos of the C8 Z06 in the Red Mist color (color code GPH). The model seen here is the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 Coupe (as opposed to the hardtop Convertible) riding on what appear to be Spider design forged aluminum wheels finished in Satin Graphite (RPO Code SOC). The rollers are hiding a set of Bright Red Calipers (J6F). It’s worth noting that the Edge Red (J6N) caliper option is no longer available.
This Red Mist unit is equipped with the shiny exhaust tips, which are standard on the C8 Z06. However, black exhaust tips are available as an option, like on the Rapid Blue C8 Z06 we showed you yesterday.
For the 2023 Corvette Z06, the Red Mist hue is available with four interior colorways, but not four others.
Available interior colorways:
- Jet Black
- Sky Cool Gray
- Natural Dipped
Not available interior colorways:
- Adrenaline Red
- Adrenaline Red Dipped
- Ceramic White with Red stitching
- Tension Blue / Twilight Blue Dipped
Chevy has been struggling with parts constraints stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, and – as GM Authority was the first to report – orders for the 2023 Corvette Z06 have been heavily limited, further adding to the rarity of this desirable performance machine. In fact, the C8 Z06 is currently unavailable to order for the 2023 model year.
As a result of this, among those who were able to place an order, there’s been a huge demand for option-rich builds. As GM Authority reported in September, a majority of 2023 Corvette Z06 buyers are optioning the car to the gills.
As a reminder, the 2023 Corvette Z06 is equipped as standard with the naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine rated at a whopping 670 horses and 460 pound-feet of torque. Under the skin is the GM Y2 platform that unpins all C8 Corvettes, while production takes place at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
