2023 Corvette Z06 Reveal Details
The C8 Corvette Z06 debut will open with what’s being described as a “feature film” and will likely be set in a few locations that were teased in previous videos. These include Circuit of the Americas, Le Mans, and The Nürburgring. The film is sure to be full of glorious, dramatic noises coming from the supercar’s unique 5.5L LT6 flat-plane crank DOHC V8 engine; which will be a record-breaking motor in many respects. Following the reveal video, the 2023 Corvette Z06 debut will finish with a live panel discussion, which we’re sure is going to feature the who’s who of the Corvette team. People such as executive chief engineer Tadge Juechter and marketing frontman Harlan Charles come to mind. And we’re sure a few recognizable faces from the Corvette Racing team are likely to be there as well.
Most recently, a Red Mist 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 was caught in the middle of a media shoot in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Was it to be part of the official Corvette Z06 reveal video? It’s unclear at this time.
The Corvette Z06 was first offered in 1963, and featured a 360 hp fuel-injected small-block V8 engine, a 36.5-gallon fiberglass fuel tank, a four-speed manual transmission, a close-ratio manual transmission and Positraction rear end. 50 years later, and the next chapter of the Corvette Z06 story is about to start, featuring a 600-plus horsepower DOHC V8, a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission, an electronic limited slip rear differential, a center-mounted exhaust, a wild aerodynamics package, train-stopping brakes, and some of the stickiest production tires known to humankind.
