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.

2023 C8 Corvette Z06 Production Date To Start May 9th!?

Check out this video from HorsePower Obsessed as he covers the production date of the new 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 to start May 9th.

This aligns with a new video Rick Corvette Conti just posted we added to our post here. So if it starts on May 9th car dealers might be getting allocations for the C8 Z06 in Jan/Feb 2022.

Also, there has been buzz that the official pricing on the Corvette Z06 will be announced in April 2022 at the National Corvette Museum bash. The speculation is the base C8 Z06 will start in the $85-90k range and go up to $140k with the Z07 package, carbon fiber wheels, and fully loaded 3LZ model.

Chevy Car Dealers Are Already Marking Up the C8 Z06 up to $50,000!

Check out this video from Speed Phenom where he once again drives around California to see what Chevy Dealerships are requiring to get on their C8 Z06 lists.

He has done this before and we covered that here where they were asking $20k-$30K in mark ups and had 1LT base Stingray corvettes with $50,000 mark up stills. We covered that with Gateway Chevrolet in Arizona as well who did that too recently once we discovered a video on YouTube showing the mark up on their lot.

In our own personal experience we have talked to “smaller” Chevrolet dealerships recently and they wanted $5k deposit and will be marking up the C8 Z06 by $20k they had one person on the list so far so we would have been the 2nd but we went the Ciocca Corvette route with no mark ups at all.


  • The first Chevy dealer he goes to says $2,500 if your not a new customer $5k deposit and there will be mark up. They are doing a raffle for the list and most of their C8s had a $20k mark ups.
  • He mentions 9000 people are on the Ciocca Corvette list!
  • The “biggest San Diego” chevy dealer has a list of 100 people but hasn’t disclosed the mark ups yet.
  • Someone committed to $50k over sticker for the first C8 Z06

INSANE Widebody C8 Corvette by RDB LA! Super Wide & Loud!

Check out this video by RDB LA as they widebody a C8 Corvette for a customer. They also added their RDB LA wheels and had to do a bunch of custom body shop work on the widebody kit from Sigala as it didn’t fit that good from the beginning.

We been covering the RDB LA Widebody C8 Corvette since the beginning of June 2021 when they first did a video about the start of the C8 Corvette widebody build project. 

Here’s a post of ours that compares 3 different C8 Corvette Widebody kits including StreetHunter Design, Pandem USA and the Sigala Design which this one used.

Do you like the big widebody kits or would you prefer adding carbon fiber aero parts like Racing Sport Designs has?

Per their Widebody C8 Corvette Video

This C8 Corvette project went through the ropes, we had lots of issues with this one as the bodykit was a “prototype” and wouldn’t fit very well. Massive labor went into it to get it to fit properly with no issues after paint. We are finally happy with it (still missing the suspension due to supplier backorder) and get to show you this wild ride. Its Sebring Orange and features GOLD RDB Wheels! Lots more in this episode as we are ALWAYS working on big projects and finishing them daily!
