The Chevy Corvette Z06 is GM’s answer to sports cars and supercars alike. While developed as a track weapon capable of putting German and Italian supercars to shame, Chevy has recently been focused on offering more accessories for the C8 Corvette. Now, the 2023 Z06 gets a new grille insert.
This new accessory is the Visible Carbon Fiber grille insert (RPO code RZ9), and will be available as an LPO, or dealer-installed part. Additionally, this new part will be offered as a Genuine Corvette Accessory.
This grille insert will set customers back $2,125, and will be available to order on all trim levels (1LZ, 2LZ, 3LZ) for both coupe and convertible Z06 body styles.
It’s worth noting that this add-on was already offered on the Corvette Stingray, so it’s only new for the Z06.
This isn’t the only visible carbon fiber part just announced for the C8. Recently, GM Authority reported that the Corvette Stingray is getting the new Visible Carbon Fiber door intake trim, while both the Stingray and the Z06 receive the Visible Carbon Fiber High Wing Spoiler aero option as well.
As a reminder, the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 is powered by the naturally-aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine. This high-revving screamer pushes out 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and is mated to the eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Under the body panels, the C8 rides on the GM Y2 platform, just like every C8 Corvette.
Meanwhile, production takes place exclusively at the GM bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
