Illinois Dealer Is Selling A 25-Mile Corvette Z06 For $375K

Supercars / Comments

This has to be the most insane markup of the year.

Volo Auto Sales in Illinois is trying to sell this Torch Red Z06 for an eye-watering $375K.

The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is America's take on the Ferrari 458, and the engineers absolutely knocked it out of the park. This high-performance version of the already rapid Corvette Stingray can take on cars double and even triple its price if that price happens to be the claimed MSRP on Chevy's website. Unfortunately, due to extreme demand and almost no supply, dealers are trying to sell Z06s for more than you'd pay for a brand-new Ferrari 296 GTB.

We've seen some crazy dealer markups on this car before, going as high as $100,000 over MSRP, and this 25-mile car is the perfect example of how insane things are getting.


With only 25 miles on the clock, this Z06 isn't even run in yet, but at nearly $400,000, you'd expect it to come with a built-in jacuzzi, putting green, and a fish tank in the frunk.

This 2023 example is a top-of-the-line 3LZ trim and comes with all the trimmings, but that certainly doesn't warrant such a wallet-busting price tag. Over and above the 3LZ features, this 'Vette also comes with an Adrenaline Red interior, spider-design machined-face forged alloy wheels, carbon ceramic brakes, and Bright Red brake calipers. This Z06 has also received a massive dose of carbon fiber strewn across the exterior and interior.

Under the hood, you get a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V8 LT6 engine producing 670 horsepower at a dizzying 8,400 rpm and 460 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a slick eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. The result is a 0-60 mph time of 2.6 seconds.


Ordering a Z06 in this configuration directly from Chevrolet equates to an asking price of just under $150,000, which means this particular dealership is asking 251% over the regular price.

Global supply shortages and generally high demand for these cars will naturally hike prices. Still, at $375k, we think they're snickering behind closed dealership doors, and the best part is that this specific car doesn't even come with the sought-after Z07 Performance Package.

Let's hope that the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky can hike production of the Z06 so the market can stabilize to semi-sane levels. If not, we'll just have to keep on relying on internet outrage to keep dealer markups from getting out of hand.
