The 2023 Corvette Z06 has amassed a substantial amount of interest and a gigantic following since Chevy first revealed the high performance track weapon. Much of the interest has centered around the 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 Arctic White hue.
GM Authority’s photographers captured these exclusive photos of the C8 Z06 in the Arctic White hue (color code G8G). The model seen here is the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 Coupe (as opposed the Convertible) riding on a set of Spider design wheels that appear to be finished in Titanium Satin (RPO Code SOE) hiding a set of red brake calipers, though we can’t tell whether they are the Bright Red (J6F) or the Edge Red (J6N).
For the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06, the Arctic White hue is available with all but one interior colorway.
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
It’s worth noting that this is the second Arctic White Z06 we’ve reported on. However, unlike the first one, this unit is not equipped with the Z07 package and has inboard exhaust. The outboard exhaust on the other example indicates that it’s intended for a foreign market.
GM has been struggling with parts constraints stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, and – as GM Authority was the first to report – capacity 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, there’s been a huge demand for option-rich builds among those who were able to place an order. 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.
