Some options are unique to the Z06.
The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is easily one of the most anticipated new sports cars in the United States right now. The first Z06 sold for an eye-watering $3.6 million, but you'll be able to acquire one for a lot less than that if you are willing to be patient. We now have a bit more information about the options available for this special model - as well as the regular 2023 Stingray, also offered in a 70th Anniversary Edition - thanks to a leaked guide that was shared by Corvette Action Center. This guide comes from what's known as GM's Order Work Bench System whereby Chevy dealers can configure the 2023 Corvette.
The leaked guide doesn't come with any prices attached, but we are able to see the available options for the 2023 Corvette. In both these cases, the 2023 Corvette and 2023 Corvette Z06 were configured with the top-spec 3LT and 3LZ packages. For the Z06, there are 14 exterior colors including Abalone White, Arctic White, the popular Torch Red, Rapid Blue, and Amplify Orange. The exterior can be further customized via your choice of brake caliper colors, one of several full-length racing stripes, carbon flash exterior trim, a removable roof panel, a dual-roof package, and different emblem colors. Three spoiler options are available. Quite simply, there are too many configuration possibilities to list here.
There is a wide selection of interior trim choices. Leather or suede can be chosen in cool colors like Adrenaline Red, two-tone Tension Blue/Twilight Blue, Sky Cool Gray, and Jet Black. Both GT2 and competition sport bucket seats are available. The model in question in the leaked order guide was equipped with power front seats with a memory package for the driver, a rear camera mirror, a suede-wrapped upper interior, a 14-speaker Bose sound system, a head-up display, front/rearview cameras, and a performance data and video recorder. A similarly long list of options is offered for the regular Corvette, although one or two Z06-specific items are missing.
Whereas the Z06 can be equipped with the high gloss woven carbon fiber ornamentation finish, this option isn't offered for the regular C8. However, it does look like some new wheel designs and a new Blackout interior are going to be offered. The accessory engine cover with an alternative finish is a bit of a mystery until we see it.
Overall, the 2023 Corvette lineup should offer more than enough customization potential for customers. March 24 is the first day that dealers will be able to place pre-orders for 2023 models. Like everyone else, we can't wait to get behind the wheel of the 670-horsepower 5.5-liter naturally-aspirated flat-plane crank V8 that is the highlight of the Z06. We expect the new Z06 to start at just under $90,000.
