Thanks to Chevrolet, we now have a first non-camouflaged photo of the upcoming 2023 Corvette Z06.
According to reports, the high performance C8 Z06 will be powered by an all-new 5.5L flat crank V8 engine putting out in excess of 600 horsepower.
A couple weeks ago, we reported on a spy video of several Z06 Corvette prototypes testing around the Nurburgring track. From the video, you can easily tell that the Z06 will be the first Corvette to truly sound like an Italian exotic sports car.
The photo that Chevy released here is the base model Z06 with a much less aerodynamic package and base Z06 wheels. High performance variants will follow the base model and will include more radical aerodynamic package options and carbon fiber wheels manufactured by Dymag.
As expected, we can also see that the Z06 will be a slightly wider version of the standard Stingray as shown in the comparison photo below:
Below is the press information released by Chevrolet yesterday:
The all-new, 2023 Corvette Z06 will be revealed on Tuesday, October 26th. This morning on Instagram, Chevrolet shared a first-look at the exterior of the Z06.
