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.
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.
IS THIS Z06 MODE? SECRET 2022 C8 CORVETTE RACE DISPLAY FOUND! | POV
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..
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.
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?
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.
