Doug DeMuro Review of the NEW Corvette C8 Z06

Check out this Video Review of the Corvette C8 Z06 by Doug DeMuro who runs Cars and Bids and has a big following on YouTube for Car Reviews and the “Doug Score”.

2023 Chevy Corvette C8 Z06: Here’s a Thorough Tour of this Beast!

Some of the highlights from Doug DeMuro Corvette C8 Z06 Review

  • 70 is on the back windshield for the 70th anniversary (they will probably introduce the “zora” for the 75th anniversary is our guess
  • Most powerful V8 ever made thanks to the flat plane crank engine
  • Torque is not improved from the Stingray C8 Corvette
  • All Z06 Engines are hand built with their signature which we love because then you know who built it and if something happened their name is on it which we are sure gives them more pride in their work.
  • Z06 badges everywhere to remind you it’s not the base model C8 Stingray Z51
  • Multiple Carbon Fiber Interior Packages for the New Z06 Corvette C8
  • Carbon Fiber Steering Wheel
  • The interior comes in 7 different colors, 7 different seat belts, and 7 different brake caliper colors.
  • The convertible performs as well as the coupe because of the rigidity

C8 Corvette Z06 All Wheel Drive Version?

Check out this video by Chevy Dude where he covers 10 things you might have missed during the 2023 Z06 Corvette reveal.

One of the most interesting things he mentions is the C8 Corvette Z06 on an All Wheel Drive Dyno. If this car is pushing 670 horsepower with an All Wheel Drive option like a Lamborghini 610-4 we might be able to see low 10s in the quarter mile stock.

Also, with the E Ray, Hybrid Corvette C8 ZR1, and possibly Zora (all electric) Corvette that pushes 1000 Horsepower like the Tesla Plaid going all wheel drive will be a must to compete and not spin since spinning ain’t winning!

Some other things he points out on the Corvette C8 Z06 is;

  • Copo on the cylinder heads
  • Z06 was a 25k+ increase with the C7 = $87195, he thinks $89,995 plus mark ups unless Chevy takes those additional mark ups and starts the Corvette Z06 C8 pricing at $99,995
  • Summer 2022 July/August will be the start of production of the C8 Corvette Z06 so we most likely wont see the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 hit lots until Fall of 2022 since on average it takes 60 days for maximum production rates of the C8 Corvette

UPDATE: April 2022 Chevy Announced a Full Electric and Hybrid C8 Corvette with all wheel drive

After the C8 Corvette Z06 Chevy has announced there will be an all wheel drive hybrid assist C8 Corvette and then a full electric C8 Corvette after that as well.


BREAKING NEWS! Chevrolet has officially revealed not only the first ever AWD All Wheel Drive Corvette, but the first ever hybrid powered Corvette and the first ever all EV (Electric) Corvette! Join us as we break down the engineering behind making this vehicle possible.

2023 Corvette Z06 Details WE STILL DON’T Know

They still didn’t provide production or release dates, pricing (most likely $85-$95k to start), lists and mark up information. We have heard dealers already with 1000+ people on their lists and will be marking them up again anywhere from $10-50k.

Other things they didn’t mention was top speed and weight (updated here, 3450 with the Z07 full carbon fiber/wheels). So our guess is either its the same or not impressive enough to share.

In another recent update here in January of 2022 there are several YouTubers and C8 Forums buzzing about a part supplier for the C8 Z06 saying they need to be ready April 22nd producing the part they do for the Corvette Z06 which coincides close to the 2023 C8 Corvette May 9th production dates released to dealers.

The new videos that Chevrolet keeps releasing keeps talking about putting the world on notice as a global car and to take on the exotics and supercars.

This was recently discussed here in a YouTube video about how the C8 Z06 Production will not be limited which again is speculation and nothing official from General Motors or Chevrolet.

Here is a list of some of our more recent posts as we get more information about the new 2023 Corvette Z06.

2023 C8 Corvette Pricing

So now there are two videos with leaked C8 Z06 pricing information from two Chevy Dealers that the Corvette C8 Z06 will be priced at $87,000 and a leaked build sheet for the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 showing it starts at $88,000 for the base model coupe and $95,500 for the base model C8 Z06 convertible.

What’s Different between the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 vs C8 Z06 Z07

Check out this video from HorsePower Obsessed where he covers the big differences of the base model C8 Corvette Z06 vs the Track packaged and track focused C8 Z06 with the bigger wing shown at the Nürburgring testing.

ALL of the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 and Z07 differences! Aero, Tires, Suspension, and MORE!

  • Better Upgraded Ceramic Brakes
  • Better Suspension
  • Better Aero, bigger Wing vs the duckbill type spoiler that Racing Sport Concepts makes.
  • Better Cup2 R Tires
  • Carbon Fiber Wheel Options

These are some of his guess from the spy videos what do you think will be the big differences between the base model C8 Z06 Corvette vs. the Track package track focused C8 Corvette Z06 Z07?

Also, what do you think will be the big differences between the base model C8 Corvette Stingray Z51 vs. the C8 Z06? And what do you think the C8 Z06 pricing will start at?

How Much Will the C8 Corvette Z06 Cost?

Check out this video from YouTuber Brink of Speed where he goes over pricing the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06. He is going to the C8 Z06 unveiling on October 26th, in Los Angeles at the Petersen Museum.

He uses a C7 Z06 Corvette Price Configurator to as a reference point to the new C8 Z06 Corvette which everyone thinks will be starting in the $90k range which would be about 8k more then that C7 Corvette pricing started out as.

Check out the C8 Corvette Z06 pricing, options, specs he chose to come up with a $117,000 price for the New Z06 C8 Corvette.

C8 Corvette New RPM Tachometer Display, C8 Z06 Hints?

Check out this video from Speed Phenom where he takes delivery of a new 2022 C8.R Edition Corvette that has the sticker package and plaque and he possibly finds a hint to the new C8 Z06 RPM display?

Recently, Rick Corvette Conti said he has seen the engine, interior and some new features too was this what he was hinting at too?

You can see now in the video when in this new Track Display mode it tells you when to shift and goes from Green, Yellow to Red for the shift points.

If you click “numerical” in the tachometer Track mode you can see the RMP gauge giving the exact RPM real time read out. And when you start driving it will show you the shift points. This could be a preview into the new C8 Z06 numerical RPM tachometer display.


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.
