2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06: After a 2-year hiatus, the Corvette Z06 is back as an early 2023 model. Breathing fire with its flat-plane crank V8 that makes 670 horsepower, the Z06 seats 2 and will initially be available as a 2-door coupe, followed by a 2-door convertible version. Competitors include the Acura NSX Type S, Nissan GT-R Nismo, and Porsche 911 Turbo.
Full details on performance and equipment are yet to be released, but a Z07 Performance Package with three different levels of aerodynamic support will be offered. One engine will be available: A naturally aspirated, flat-plane crank 5.5-liter V8 that produces 670 horsepower at 8,400 rpm and pairs to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Only rear-wheel-drive models are offered.
Much like the flat-plane crank V8 engine, other aspects of the Z06 are derived from Chevy’s Corvette racing program. These include a more aggressive body kit, oversized carbon ceramic brakes, carbon wheels, and a more capable cooling system. Per Chevrolet, it will do 0-60 in just 2.6 seconds, be capable of generating 734 pounds of downforce at 186 mph, and ride on Michelin Cup 2 R tires. Pricing has yet to be announced.
