The 2024 Corvette Z06 drops in as the second model-year for the go-faster C8 Z06, once again delivering impressive track-ready performance and a high-revving, flat-plane-crank V8 engine. All of this goodness is wrapped in an aggressive exterior, which can be enhanced even further with the addition of the optional carbon fiber aero packages. Unfortunately, GM Authority has learned that the 2024 Corvette Z06 carbon aero packages are currently under constraint.
The two 2024 Corvette Z06 aero package in question include the following (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- Carbon Flash-painted carbon fiber package with high wing, dive planes and ground effects (T0F)
- Visible carbon fiber package with high wing, dive planes and ground effects (T0G)
The T0F carbon fiber aero package normally costs $8,495, while the T0G carbon fiber aero package normally costs $10,495. Currently, the T0F package is constrained at 30 percent, while the T0G package is constrained at 20 percent. Essentially, this means that the available supply for these packages is limited at 30 percent and 20 percent, respectively, of what GM originally expected to receive and sell.
This constraint also impacts the availability of the Z07 Performance Package, which requires either the T0F package or the T0G package. It’s unclear at this time when these constraints will be lifted.
As a reminder, the 2024 Corvette Z06 is equipped as standard with the naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine, which is rated at 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. The LT6 has a redline set at 8,600 rpm, and emits an exotic-sounding exhaust note courtesy of its flat-plane crankshaft. Output is sent rearwards through the eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, sending the sports car from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds.
The GM Y2 platform provides the underpinnings, while production takes place exclusively at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
