The 2023 Corvette Z06 has amassed a huge following since Chevy first revealed the high performance machine. Much of the interest has centered around the unique, naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 engine, since it’s the world’s most powerful naturally-aspirated V8 in a production car. Additionally, many fans, enthusiasts and observers have also 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 Silver Flare Metallic hue.
GM Authority has captured these exclusive photos of the C8 Z06 in the Silver Flare Metallic color (color code GSJ). The model seen here is the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 Convertible (as opposed to the Coupe with the manually-removable top) riding on a set of Spider design wheels that appear to finished in Titanium Satin (RPO Code SOE).
This Silver Flare Metallic unit is equipped with Carbon Flash Exterior accents, including side vents and grille accents in the front and rear (EFR). There’s also the shiny exhaust tips out back, 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 previously.
For the 2023 Corvette Z06, the Silver Flare Metallic hue is available with all but one interior colorways.
Available interior colorways:
- Jet Black
- Sky Cool Gray
- Adrenaline Red
- Adrenaline Red Dipped
- Natural Dipped
- Tension Blue/ Twilight Blue Dipped
Not available interior colorways:
- Ceramic White with Red stitching
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 no longer available 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.
