Given Barrett-Jackson Auctions’ previous history of auctioning off the very first and last production based Corvettes in recent years, it’s no surprise that they’ll be auctioning the very first production-based 2023 Corvette Z06 at the end of this month.
Lot #3009 – The first retail production 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 puts the world on notice, with its striking appearance, sound and tactile feel.
The new American supercar is set apart by its beating heart – the all-new 5.5-liter LT6, the highest-horsepower, naturally aspirated V8 to hit the market in any production car, ever. An all-new flat-plane crankshaft design entices drivers to push the tachometer to a lofty 8,600 rpm, creating 670hp.
Almost every exterior detail unique to the Z06 serves a purpose for aerodynamics, handling or cooling, with styling cues that accentuate the car’s sense of motion. Designers pulled out the fenders to accommodate larger wheels and air intakes, giving 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. In the driver-focused cockpit, premium materials are complemented by available carbon-fiber trim that expresses the car’s lightweight, track-focused mantra. Unique features include an available carbon-fiber-wrapped steering wheel and the all-new, fully trimmed interior available in Adrenaline Red.
With 12 available exterior colors and seven interior colors (with the opportunity to create thousands of combinations) and seven available wheel packages, the 2023 Corvette Z06 is the most bespoke Corvette yet.
The 2023 Corvette Z06 will be seen, heard and experienced around the globe when production begins in the summer of 2022. **100% OF HAMMER PRICE TO BENEFIT OPERATION HOMEFRONT** **WILL BE SOLD AT APPROXIMATELY 8:30 P.M. MT ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 29, 2022**
