We say supercar because, while the regular C8 was closing in on 200 mph (322 km/h) with regards to top speed, the C8 Z06’s extra power would surely allow it to break the 200 mph mark. What you may be wondering about is the options’ pricing, which is expected to remain relatively similar to the regular C8. But just how much over $86,995 price tag can the C8 Z06 go?

With the regular C8, the convertible cost $7,500 extra, while the 2LZ and 3LZ packages cost $3,270 and $8,650 respectively. Again, referring to the regular C8 options’ price, the Z07 package costs an additional $7,995 and if you want the exposed carbon fiber ground effects, that’s another $3,995, and for the competition seats – an additional $995.

With the C8 Z06, you get the front carbon-fiber lip spoiler and magnetic ride control, as standard. However, the most expensive option will be the carbon-fiber wheels. While some sources claim the option would cost around $20,000, the channel’s host speculates that the actual price is more likely to be around $10,000, but only if you already have the Z07 package. After everything we just said, we can expect that the most expensive Corvette C8 Z06 would top out somewhere between $130,000 and $140,000.
