The Chevrolet Corvette (C8) is the eighth generation of the Corvette sports car manufactured by American automobile manufacturer Chevrolet. Corvette (C8) is the first mid-engine Corvette since the model's introduction in 1953, differing from the traditional front-engine design. The Z06 will have three trim levels adding various interior comfort and technology upgrades: 1LZ, 2LZ, and 3LZ. Additionally, the Z07 Performance Package can be applied to any trim that adds improved brakes, carbon fiber aerodynamic elements, suspension tuning, and performance tires.
The base Z06 comes with a front splitter and a rear spoiler, included with the rear spoiler is an installable fixed wickerbill. The Z07 carbon fiber performance package adds a larger front-splitter, front corner canards (dive planes), a pedestal mounted rear wing and underbody aero strakes for additional downforce for track performance. A new, hand-built 5.5-liter LT6 V8 engine powers the 2023 Z06. It employs a flat-plane crankshaft that helps it make 670 horsepower at 8,400 rpm and rev to an 8,600 rpm redline. Chevrolet claims no other naturally aspirated V8 in a production car has ever made this much horsepower. Torque measures 460 pound-feet at 6,300 rpm. 0-60 mph takes place in just 2.6 seconds, thanks in part to launch control, wider and stickier tires, and clever magnetic ride suspension.
