Is the C8 Corvette Z06 Production Starting April 22nd?

In this video HorsePower Obsessed on YouTube shares a comment that was posted on a C8 Corvette Forum that states C8 Z06 production could start April, 22 2022.

The comment specifically says:

c8 corvette production

 

Which is very interesting since we recently posted from another YouTuber that was told from one of the top 2 selling Corvette dealers MacMulkin Chevrolet this is going to be a global car and they will not limit production of the C8 Corvette Z06

2023 C8 Corvette Z06 Production To Start MUCH sooner than originally expected!

There has also been information released that the 2023 C8 Corvettes including the C8 Z06 production should start in May 9th.

For more information about the C8 Corvette Z06 check out our resources here and here.

Another YouTuber Brink of Speed also shared his thoughts about the recent C8 Corvette Z06 production rumors, comments, and videos.

He has a direct email from a parts manufacture for the C8 Corvette Z06 and his email has some very specific details. They are estimating 60 per day production and about 10,200 C8 Corvette Z06 produced with about 15,000 Corvette C8 Z06s made every year after. Check out the video below to see the email that was sent from a Gmail account that coincides with the comment shared above on a C8 Corvette Forum.

Will GM produce MORE 2023 C8 Corvette Z06’s & SOONER than we THOUGHT!?

C8 Corvette Gets Wrapped Inozetek Metallic Racing Green

In this video you can see Racing Sport Concepts white C8 Corvette get transformed with Inozetek’s Metallic Racing Green wrap material.

In Inozetek’s Instagram post Racing Sport Concepts mentions Black Star or @goblackstar on Instagram did the wrap so perhaps “Car WrapKing Vinyl Wraps” filmed it or this is their new YouTube channel.

Either way they did an amazing job and that color looks awesome with Racing Sport Concepts full C8 Corvette carbon fiber body kit.

Inozetek is a super glossy popular wrap material company that has been growing and blowing up in the aftermarket automotive industry. We used their “super gloss Chalk grey” wrap on our C8 Corvette as well and very happy with it.

Rick Corvette Conti Jumping a C8 Corvette?

In this video from Rick Corvette Conti on YouTube he shares the latest C8 Corvette news and has a date set for his C8 Corvette “Evil Knievel ” type of stunt jump which is December 19th, 2021.

C8 Corvette Plant Slowdowns

Rick mentions a lot of his C8 Corvettes for customers are just sitting at the Bowling Green, KY plant for over month that he thought he should of received by now.

C8 Corvette Z06 Pricing

Rick also shares his thoughts on the C8 Corvette Z06 Pricing YouTube videos and confirms its all speculation as he speculates the pricing will come out in January or February 2022 from Chevrolet and General Motors officially.

Heated Steering Wheel 

If you don’t get a heated steering wheel with any GM vehicle you get a $25.00 credit, 1 year free remote access plan, and they will retrofit your car when the part comes in since it’s been effected like many things with the supply chain and chip shortage.

Rick Corvette Conti C8 Corvette Jump

Rick Conti mentions he will be jumping his C8 Corvette Evil Knievel style with a full video production type video on December 19th, 2021. He will be sharing the video on his YouTube channel here and he has already completed the jump and has some slight injuries from that and also jumping over his car.

He mentions he messed up his C8 Corvette Convertible by jumping it but it is currently fixed already. It was a lot more damage then he expected and you will have to watch his YouTube channel Dec 19th to see the video of the C8 Corvette jump.

C8 CORVETTE JUMPS OVER ANOTHER C8

So here is the video of Rick Corvette Conti Jumping a C8 Corvette over another C8 Corvette. Real or Fake with good high production paid for editing? Leave your comment below.

He conveniently does the “jump” at night, in the rain, in a “private lot” that looks like a commercial building or school parking lot. You don’t see him land or go ramp to ramp and supposedly lands on asphalt but runs out of the car ok and the car flys down the concrete at 70MPH.

Unlike StreetSpeed717 where you clearly see him jump his lambo over his other lambo there is some fishy stuff going on here with Rick and looks more like a high production magic trick of the mind on some of his YouTube Commentors which also appear to fake? (a lot of comments from profiles with no pictures, videos on their page, about section blank ect..)

WHAT DID WE DO? EVEL KNIEVEL CORVETTE JUMP FOLLOW UP

Here is the follow up to the Rick Corvette Conti C8 Corvette jump that was fake and all for “entertainment” and “views”.  So if you enjoy fake car jump videos this one is for you! lol

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. 

c8 corvette comments

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.

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.

Worlds First C8 Corvette Supercharger Kit: Now Shipping from ProCharger

Back in March, 2021 we wrote about the new Supercharger for the the C8 Corvette being created by ProCharger.

Today, they have officially announced its ready to ship. Here are some of the highlights of ProCharger’s Supercharger for the Corvette C8. It’s interesting to note the horsepower increase is pretty close to the new C8 Z06 670HP with the flat plane crank and actually edging it out by 5+ HP or so.

This was a year long development process and they wanted to make sure everything was tested, fitted, and the drivability is good. Also, install was a bolt on the kit so it doesn’t take away from the trunk space and matches aesthetics and looks even better with their carbon fiber accents.

ProCharger Supercharger for C8 Corvette Highlights

  • .3 reduction in 0-60 times.
  • 8 additional MPH in the 1/4 mile.
  • Reduction in lap times on road course.
  • 675+ HP on the dyno when using 93 octane.
