C8 Z06 Unofficial Lap Time (MORE TESTING)

Check out this video by Carspotter Jeroen where the low wing C8 Z06 Corvette was timed running a 8:18 and the High Wing C8 Z06 Corvette ran a 7:12 unofficial lap time at the Nurburgring.

We first reported on the C8 Z06 at the Nurburgring back in early August but there continues to be a lot of testing leading up to the October 26th, 2021 reveal of the C8 Z06 and production information as well as specs and price.

There are dealers that have 900+ people on waiting lists already for the new 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 models and a lot of speculation that the C8 Z06 is already sold out and dealers have already confirmed C8 Z06 mark ups again as they did and continue to do with the base model C8 Corvette Stingray and Z51 package.

C8 Z06 Testing Continues at the NÜRBURGRING

Check out this very clear video of the C8 Z06 variations testing at the Nurburgring. You can really get a good look and hear the flat plane crank engine in this one.

We have a running list of other C8 Z06 Nurburgring Videos and C8 Z06 information in preparation of the C8 Z06 reveal on October, 26th of 2021.

The C8 Z06 is going to have new aero kit options including a split wing as well as new wheels and a center exhaust.

There are Chevy Dealerships with 900+ waiting lists and have already said they are going to mark up the C8 Z06. The C8 Z06 is sold out before it’s even revealed.

2023 CORVETTE C8 Z06 CONTINUES TESTING AT THE NÜRBURGRING!

C8 Z06 Sold Out Already!

Check out this video from DadBodSZN610 on YouTube has he been waiting for a base model C8 Corvette since February 2020!

He now called 15 of the top Chevy dealers that have the highest Corvette sales and some of the lists had 900 people (Macmulkin Chevrolet Cadillac). He even had Chevy Dealers saying it would be a 4 year wait! Also, they admitted there will a list drop off based on financial reasons etc..

He has a point though C8 Corvettes sold for 5k, 20k, 30k, and even STILL marked up $50k as we posted about an Arizona Chevy Dealer Gateway Chevrolet known for HUGE C8 Corvette mark ups as well as one of the Top Corvette dealers in sales of Corvettes Van Chevrolet marking up C8 Corvettes $20k!

Check out his video he has many valid points including C8 Corvette prices not dropping that much even with the C8 Z06 coming out.

We have also posted a C8 Z06 pricing mark up video by Speed Phenom where every Chevy Dealer in Los Angeles had C8 Z06 lists and they were marking them too!

It’s not going to even matter about the possible new C8 z06 colors we talked about people being able to choose when most people won’t be able to get one with a lot more limited production and waiting lists of hundreds of people at each Chevy Dealer in the country.

It’s going to be very interesting to see what Chevy reveals about the C8 Z06 on October 26th including pricing, production dates, and if they are going to control the allocation flow and mark ups better vs what happened with the C8 Stingray which was effected by a UAW strike, Covid, and supply chain issues.

C8 Corvette Mark Ups Continue with the 2023 Corvette C8 Z06

In this video by YouTuber Speed Phenom, Austin Everett the C8 Corvette mark ups will continue on the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06, however how high are people on these “lists” able to spend or want to spend on the new Corvette C8 Z06 will be the question.

You will notice Speed Phenom, Austin Everett go to at least 5 Chevrolet dealers in the Los Angeles area. And not only do a few have 100s on their C8 Corvette Z06 list most have already said they will be adding a $20k – $30k mark up on the C8 Corvette Z06 that comes out in 2023 as well.

The funny part of this video is some of these same Chevy dealers in California he visited had 1LT C8 Corvettes marked up $50k plus still.

This C8 Corvette market is hot, the chip shortages, lockdowns, and UAW strike didn’t help and now it doesn’t look like its going to cool off anytime soon.

I know people already selling or trying to sell their 2020, 2021 C8 Corvettes in anticipation for the C8 Z06 that is coming however you might not be able to get one for a long time like the C8 Corvette base model Stingray so maybe its worth keeping it and trading it in or selling once you actually secure a C8 Corvette Z06 in hand because this market isn’t slowing down anytime soon and there are more mark ups to come.

The real question is how high is someone willing to spend in getting a C8 Corvette Z06? Say it starts a $90k base and marked up another $20k before options and options put you over $120k depending on the 4 possible C8 Corvette Z06 variants and we are just using a base C8 Z06 as an example will people go up to $120k for the C8 Z06? Only time will tell.

Eventually as the C8 Corvette gets closer to McLaren and Lamborghini prices and with the electric vehicle market ramping up now that the Tesla Plaid is the king of the road performance wise at the 130k range what’s going to be the number people drop off lists, can’t afford the C8 Z06 or start to question whether they should get a C8 Z06 vs some of the other cars that end up being in the same price range?

Here’s the video from Speed Phenom to see what happened when he went to Chevy stores in his area to find out more information about the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06.

YOU WON’T BELIEVE MARKUPS ON THE 2023 C8 CORVETTE Z06! FT. POSSIBLE FIRST DRIVE NEWS

C8 Z06 Going to Have a Magnesium DCT Transmission?

Check out this video from YouTuber and Corvette salesperson Rick Corvette Conti as he interviews Brandon Byers with Vette Titans about the video footage he got of the new C8 Corvette Z06 test mules that stopped at a hotel overnight.

He said he thinks its going to have a center exhaust with a magnesium DCT transmission and probably a lot more magnesium parts (oil pan) to save weight. There was no Twin Turbo set up and possibly a magnesium exhaust as well. They all had the same wheels some had ceramic brakes which makes sense on a C8 Z06 variant of the C8 Corvette.

Also, he thinks they are were just testing out handling and have not yet refined the diffuser, exhaust tips, wheels, or exhaust set up although towards the rright and left side of the car where the current C8 Corvette exhaust tips come out were just “dummy” pipes.

However, the most clear image he captured was a magnesium DCT transmission from Tremec which could be just a coating by why only go that far with a coating only vs full magnesium to really save weight.

Which makes sense since General Motors (GM) been testing and using magnesium since 2012 and it’s 75% lighter than steel and 33% lighter than aluminum and they said by 2020 that they could shave off 15% of weight on their cars.

If that is the case they can take a 3300lb C8 corvette to under 3k pounds to the 2862 lb mark and really start competing with the likes of McLaren, Porsche, Lamborghini and now the Tesla Plaid.

Chevrolet Announces 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 Details to be Released in the Fall

This morning Chevrolet teased a 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 video on social media saying the details will be released this fall.

And from the “sounds” of it its going to be amazing and what everyone was expecting with a high revving, high pitched, high powered flat plane crank engine like the one in the C8R corvette racing team cars.

Here’s the video of the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06

Corvettes of Carlisle is August 26 – 28, 2021 and not quite fall but that would be a great spot to introduce the new C8 Corvette Z06 to the market if they were to do it.

The LA Auto Show is November 19th-28th at the Los Angeles Convention Center and Chicago had their car show but Detroit nixed their car show so possibly the Los Angeles Auto Show would be best place to announce more about the Z06 C8 Corvette if they don’t do it at Corvettes of Carlisle.

Per their 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 video:

Turn your sound on and feel the hair on the back of your neck raise. Check back this fall for your first look at the next chapter in one of the most storied legacies to ever touch the track and the street.

About the 2023 Z06 C8 Corvette: The mid-engine marvel continues to carve its legacy with every push of the ignition. Get behind the wheel and experience the balance of design and performance that puts Corvette, and whoever is driving it, out in front. For 2023, the head-turning presence and performance of Corvette is pushed even further with new available design options, FE2 suspension, Driver Mode Selector Visualization and Wireless Phone Projection.

C8 Corvette Z06 Delayed Until 2023?

Many C8 Corvette News YouTubers are making videos about the C8 Corvette Z06 being delayed until 2023 because of an article GM Authority wrote.

However, Chevrolet and General Motors hasn’t confirmed this news. It does make sense since Chevy is already having a hard time fulfilling the current base model C8 Stingray orders which started with the UAW strike, then Covid, and now part and chip shortages that are effecting the entire car market.

Here are the videos and leave a comment on what you think about when the C8 Z06 will come out and if you are on a list for one or not.

We are currently on 4 lists for the C8 Z06 and already built out our current C8 Corvette Z51 3LT. Recently, sold our NSX and ordered a Tesla Model S Plaid too. So we are done with building our current C8 Corvette and just going to wait on the C8 Z06 which if it does come in 2023 I bet a lot of people drop off the lists that some of these Chevy dealers like Criswell, MacMulkin, and Whitmoyer already created.

I bet Chevrolet or Executive Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter will give an update by  the end of August at Corvettes at Carlisle

Heart Breaking Z06 NEWS! How will this AFFECT your C8 Corvette PLANS?

C8 Z06 Testing Launch Control?, News, and C8 Z06 Insights (VIDEO)

Check out this video from Rick Corvette Conti where it shows the C8 Z06 testing pre production mule using launch control.

The engine has that high pitch Ferrari 458 sound and is very similar to the C8.R Racing Corvette that has a 5.5L flat plane crank engine. The new DOHC engine makes 500 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque in race trim but could easily exceed 600 hp when uncorked.

Recently we shared another video of more C8 Z06 and possibly C8 ZR1 Corvettes testing and some of them had a center exhaust.

Here’s another video from Road and Track and possibly the original source of the video.

How the Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z06 will appreciate in value over time

Check out this interesting video by High Octane Only on YouTube to learn his perspective on why he thinks the C8 Z06 will appreciate in value over time.

Per his video description:

These are my top 5 reasons as to why the 2022 c8 corvette Z06 will appreciate over time. You have to take a number of things into consideration and this by no means guarantees that it will appreciate. However, taking a look at historical data on what types of vehicles tend to increase in value, I can say with a moderate degree of certainty that the C8 Z06 corvette will be one of those vehicles. Watch the video to find out why!
