2023 C8 Z06 Corvette Pricing (LEAKED VIDEO)

Check out this video from Brink of Speed on YouTube where he leaks the 2023 C8 Z06 Corvette pricing starting at $88,000.

He supposedly has a Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z06 build sheet with all the pricing including Carbon Fiber Wheels at $11,000 and the Z07 package adding another $9,500.

UPDATED – someone in the comments is saying they made this up. With the internet nowadays you never know what is true, false, made up. As we discussed in past C8 z06 posts its all pure speculation until Chevrolet or General Motors officially announces it.

Also, if you want to go with the 3LZ option that’s another $11,950. You will see in this build its priced out to about $144,000 including $8k in Tax.

Some other interesting pricing shows the C8 Corvette Z06 Convertible starting at $95,500 or $106,995 in the 3LZ option before adding the Z07 package or any other carbon fiber add ons for the C8 Corvette Z06.

Interestingly enough this $88,000 starting price for the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 is in line with the “CONFIRMED” by two Chevy Dealers pricing of $87,000 that HorsePower Obsessed leaked as well which is about $1k off.

MacMulkin Shares Two New Possible Colors for the C8 Corvette Z06

In this video from Fred’s Full Throttle on YouTube has an “Insider Info, 2 Little Nuggets” section where he says he was told by MacMulkin Chevrolet they heard there are two new colors being considered for release for the 2023 C8 Corvettes.

Fred recently put his deposit down with MacMulkin in another recent video so maybe they mentioned it to him then.

And those two new C8 Corvette colors are the most wanted, talked about, and speculated colors as we have covered before Green and Purple.

Recently, someone spotted a new Carbon Flash Metallic color and Pearl White color in the display case at the LA Auto show.

What do you think? Will the Green and Purple finally be added to the mix?

Tesla Model S Plaid vs C8 Corvette Z51

Check out this video by Acceler8 on YouTube where they drag race a Tesla Model S Plaid vs the C8 Corvette.

So we have 1000 Horsepower AWD Tesla Plaid vs. 495 Horsepower Mid Engine Rear Wheel Drive C8 Corvette. We all know how this is going to start and end right?

The C8 Corvette gets gapped and even the new C8 Z06 that is 670 horsepower with a flat plane crank that is suppose to do 10.4 quarter mile to 10.6 in the quarter mile would get gapped.

Until the C8 Corvette comes out with an All Wheel Drive Hybrid or full electric with a closer horsepower rating and beating the Tesla Plaid on the weight it won’t come close.

2023 C8 Corvette Z06 Tires a Cheat Code?

In this recent video by Speed Phenom on YouTube he takes a look at the performance stats on the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 at the LA Auto Show.

He once again covers the 41lb weight reduction and Z07 aero package as well as the Cup 2 tires that help it perform in the low 10 second quarter mile range and around the track vs the Bugatti Chiron.

He recently interviewed the C8 Corvette engineers at the Petersen Museum on the reveal date and learned a lot more specs about the C8 Z06 like the fry weight being about 3450 pounds.

He also covers how normally a high revving natural aspirated flat plane engine wouldn’t have these type of performance numbers since its not supercharged or Twin Turbo.

How to Lower C8 Corvette (VIDEO)

Back in June of 2020 months after the C8 Corvettes started rolling out to customers we created this post on How to Lower the C8 Corvette as people started with the aftermarket mods.

One of the biggest issues cosmetically with the C8 Corvette is the big wheel gap and horrible stock wheel choices. The black trident wheel is probably the best option but again the offset isn’t as good as it could be and still a massive wheel gap that doesn’t look good for a mid engine sports car.

Since the wheels and wheel gap are an issue the most popular mods are getting aftermarket wheels for the C8 Corvette and lowering the C8 Corvette with exhausts, bolt ons, and wrapping their C8 Corvettes being very popular as well.

In this video most recent 2021 video by Paragon Performance and aftermarket marketplace for C8 Corvette mods explains every option depending on you having a base model C8 Corvette with no lift and no Z51 option to having the front lift and Z51 C8 Corvette stingray.

They sell front collars, suspension kits, and springs to lower your C8 Corvette. If you go to their site and order anything mention you found them on C8CorvetteBlog.com in the notes or when you call.

C8 Corvette Z06 1/4 Mile 10.4 Seconds (VIDEO)

Check out this video by Brink of Speed on YouTube where he shares a video from a follower of his that recorded a Spokeswoman at the LA Auto Show announce a 10.4 1/4 Mile and 0 to 60 time of 2.6 seconds.

This is faster than the posted time on some recent expo signage as they been taking the New C8 Corvette Z06 cars on a road show to automotive events across the country including SEMA, Phoenix International Raceway, Road Atlanta and now the LA Auto Show.

This is for the Non Z07 package that has the bigger wing and aero which is a more track focused car vs a drag strip car where you wouldn’t want to have the big wing from the Z07 package and much rather have the more sleeker duck bill type spoiler that the base model or non Z07 package C8 Z06 has.

Check out this video from Vossen Wheels where they highlight their Vossen Forged LC2-C1 Wheels on Gabe Florido’s Accuair Bagged C8 Corvette.

Gabe’s C8 Corvette is fitted with pretty much every carbon fiber part you can get from Racing Sport Concepts for the C8 Corvette. Also, it was recently bagged on Accuair suspension air bags at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

What is the BEST C8 Corvette Air Filter?

Most auto manufacturers recommend changing air filers at about 15,000 miles. With the C8 Corvette there will be a service light that says “Change Air Filter at Next Oil Change Service”.

The C8 Corvette also provides a percentage of what is left on the factory air filter. However, if you want to purchase an aftermarket air filter to increase the life of your air filter and not have to change it as often there are many C8 Corvette air filter options from AFE and Attack Blue.

Our choice would be the Attack Blue air filter since we used it on our C8 Corvette and has slightly better Horsepower and Torque gains then the others. It also is Dry and Washable with just soap and water so you can reuse it as well.

In this video from Paragon Performance they test 3 aftermarket air filters and they were all pretty much the same 6+ HP gain with Attack Blue edging the other two out slight in the HP/Torque numbers.

How to Find Your Ciocca Corvette Reservation Number?

If you haven’t received a reservation # for the Ciocca Corvette Z06 List if you provided them the initial $2,000 deposit to get on the list on November 2nd, this might help you.

So “Records Rebuilds” on YouTube who also made a deposit to be on the Ciocca Corvete Z06 list was able to get his reservation # by emailing them an “info packet” so they can line up the wire, email, bank account info and so on.

With receiving so many wire transfers and so many people trying to order from different bank accounts that don’t match up with their name, email, license, etc. it has taken them some time to sort through the deposits which makes total sense.

There were over 2000 deposits based on the reservation #’s we have seen people posting on the Corvette Forums, C8 Corvette Z06 Facebook groups and YouTube comments.

We updated our initial post about the Ciocca Corvette C8 Z06 list here and you can watch the video as well to learn more.

Per the video, instructions have been updated to the following:
Ok guys, big change. Ciocca got a hold of me and they do not want the information coming to one person’s email account. Its helpful to them in sorting everyone, but they want it to come to the appropriate email address: z06@cioccadealerships.com
Please make the subject “info packet” The first step toward an allocation for the C8 Z06 is complete thanks to Ciocca Corvette! This video reveals my number and might help you find yours.
Ciocca Corvette in Atlantic City
Formerly, Kerbeck Chevrolet the number one Corvette selling dealership in the United States, Ciocca Corvette started the C8 Z06 list process on Nov, 2nd 2021 once the Z06 C8 Corvette was announced.
They allowed people to come in person and wait in line and allowed wire transfers at noon their time to be sent with a $2,000 deposit to secure a spot on the list.
Since then they have stopped taking orders and are contacting people with their reservation numbers and requesting an additional $3,000 to weed out flippers and resellers and people putting their name on multiple Chevy Dealer lists in hopes to be one of the first to get the C8 Z06.
Lastly, when you place your order you will need to provide 10% of the MSRP of the C8 Corvette Z06 you spec at that time and your order will be final with no refunds of deposits.
