The next chapter in the mid-engine Corvette journey begins with the introduction of the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, along with the all-new 5.5L LT6, the highest horsepower, naturally-aspirated V-8 to ever hit the street in a production car.  A lightweight, flat-plane crank design enables the engine to rev to 8600 RPM and output 670 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

Styling is as unique as it is functional: Designers pulled out the fenders in the front and rear to cover the wider tire tread, which are 30 mm front and 40 mm rear wider than the Corvette Stingray. These extensions give the Corvette Z06 a wider, lower appearance further emphasized by a unique rear fascia that also features centered floating exhaust bezels. This floating design was key to the precise tuning in the exhaust note. The wider rear fender also allows for the larger air intakes required for the car’s cooling.

Z06-specific interior features include an available carbon fiber-wrapped steering wheel, shift paddles and new carbon fiber interior trim package level 2. The Z06 also features hand-wrapped leather interior options, including the all-new, available fully trimmed interior in Adrenaline Red. Additional new wheel, color and trim options offer Z06 customers the most personalization choices in the Corvette lineup, including twelve exterior colors, seven interior colors, and three seat choices.

“The new Corvette Z06 defines the American supercar,” said General Motors President Mark Reuss. “It builds on the distinctive design and groundbreaking dynamics introduced with the mid-engine Corvette and elevates them to deliver refined but uncompromising track capability with world-class performance.”

Production begins in summer 2022. It will be built from Bowling Green Assembly in left- and right-hand drive for worldwide markets.
