Proving that you don’t need to go six figures deep to have supercar performance on or off the track
Chevy shocked the world when the eighth-generation (C8) Corvette switched to a mid-engine layout. It naturally came with some criticism, but for the most part it was well received. Fast forward a couple of years, and Chevy stayed true to tradition by releasing an all-new C8 Corvette Z06, but how much does the new Z06 really stick to tradition? Well, it doesn’t feature forced induction, but it is supercar fast and it comes as a strong proposition to cars like the Ferrari F8 that cost more than double, and it kind of sticks it to Ford and its overpriced, heritage-proud GT. Here’s everything you need to know about the brand new 2023 Chevy C8 Corvette Z06.
Latest Chevrolet Corvette news and reviews:
How Zora Arkus-Duntov Helped Create the 2023 Chevy C8 Corvette Z06
The Corvette nameplate is an absolute legend in America. It is like a working-class hero more than capable of taking down its much more prestigious and expensive rivals from across the pond. However, the Corvette’s even faster variant, at least the one people can still afford, the Z06, almost did not even happen, and if it was not for one guy in the 1960s, Zora Arkus-Duntov, bending the rules a bit, that variant would not exist at all.
Kellison J6 Panther - The True Story Behind This Forgotten American Muscle Car
The Chevrolet Corvette is one of the most iconic American sports cars. And while there’s hardly any Corvette worth missing out on, the American icon also proved to be a great basis for other high-performance machines. One of the greatest examples of that is the Kellison J6 Panther, which was the creation of former aircraft engineer, Jim Kellison, who in 1958, founded Kellison Auto Engineering company and aimed to build an even faster version of the Chevrolet Corvette.
Full Interior Swap: Is this a Chevy C8 Camaro or an F-Body C8 Corvette?
Everyone loves a good engine swap. They are an endless source of amusement online and can breathe new life into a car. Even the most straightforward examples where you simply take an old engine out and put a new identical one in its place can make the car drive like it’s fresh out of the factory. Then there are the craziest ones, like dropping a Hellcat engine into a Prius or a Corvette powerplant into a Tesla. Plus, with the rise of the incredibly sophisticated SEMA-style builds, we occasionally see complete overhauls of cars from the ground up. This 3rd-gen Camaro may not win awards at SEMA since it is just an amalgamation of factory GM parts, but it certainly attracts attention. In terms of the engine swap, all we know is that out is the old 5.0-liter V-8 that originally lived under the hood, and in its place is an LS V-8 of some kind. Great, but in the grand scheme of things, not all that wild. The interior, on the other hand, is something of a different nature.
Would You Pay $160K For A Modified 2020 Chevrolet Corvette?
At the moment, the coolest Corvette model on the market is the Z06. With an aggressive design and a powerful engine it is a dream car for any Corvette fan out there, and it even caters to supercar enthusiasts too.

This Minted Green Corvette Z06 NFT Comes with a Real Car as Proof of Ownership
The first Corvette Z06 was auctioned for the amazing amount of $3.7 million. Now you have the chance to own another unique Z06. It won’t be the first one, but it will be the only one in the world finished in this very cool-looking Minted Green finish. And it will come with an additional NFT as proof of your ownership.
Chevrolet is not in fact the only automaker that tries to cash in on the new NFT trend. Lamborghini will sell the last Aventador unit along with a non-fungible token, while the Alfa Romeo Tonale’s the NFT will be used to record vehicle data with the customer’s consent.
Here’s What a Modern Day Manta Ray Corvette Would Look Like
With modern automotive design influenced more and more by numerous regulations, many of the production cars do not look nearly as exciting as their respective, original concept models. For the same reason, many design studies never made it to production or had to be heavily altered. While there are concept cars that made it to the real world, the Chevrolet Corvette Manta Ray is, sadly, not among them, but now, we have a modern interpretation of the 1960s design and, once again, we wish GM could give us a production version of it.
Lightning Sports TS: When The Brits Wanted To Make Their Own C3 Corvette
When we talk about “The American Dream” in the context of cars, the Chevrolet Corvette is, often, the car everyone looks up to. While largely sold in its home market, in the USA, the American sports car has had quite a faithful fanbase across the pond too. Because of this, some European carmakers tried capturing the essence of the Corvette with their own interpretation, a case in point being the Intermeccanica Indra, but in a British company, called Lightning Sports Cars UK revealed their take on a C3 Corvette, called the Lightning Sports TS, and we are not sure what to think of it.
The Fastest American Cars Ever Produced
While most people might automatically assume some of the fastest cars ever made are from Europe or Japan, that simply isn’t the case because you’ve got some pretty serious speed machines conceived right here in America. This list is comprised of cars from both mainstream automakers and boutique manufacturers who produce just a handful of super-exotics per year. Spoiler: The fastest American car also happens to be the world’s fastest production car currently!
This 1991 Chevrolet Corvette C4 ZR-1 Is An Attainable Americn Icon Worth Checking Out
The Chevrolet Corvette is an American icon, not just on its home soil, but across the pond. While the C4 generation is generally considered to not be the model’s finest hour, its top-of-the-line version, the ZR-1, is certainly a sight to behold. With this in mind, plenty of “Vettes” made it across the pond and this particular example, 1991 ZR-1, located in Enkhuizen, Netherlands, is up for grabs, and it looks like the bargain of the century.
The Hybrid, AWD C8 Corvette Could Redefine the Grand Sport Name
Chevrolet has owned the "Grand Sport" name for what seems like forever, but it wasn’t available with every generation of the Corvette. The first time it was used for the second-generation Corvette in 1963, and then it made a comeback in 1996 with the fourth generation, then skipped a generation and made a return in 2010 with the C6, and then again in 2017 with the C7.
Now it seems that the Grand Sport name is about to make a come-back as Chevrolet trademarked the name again with the “US Patent And Trademark Office”. Or it could be a simple renewal as the current trademark expires at the end of November 2022.
Learn How Chevy Leveraged Aerodynamics to make the C8 Corvette Z06 Faster
When compared to the Corvette Z8 Stingray, the Z06 is more aggressive, delivers more power and it is, of course, faster. The work on the Z06 was intensive, but in the end, the car offers improved aerodynamics from front to rear. According to Chevy, the Z06 is the most capable track car it has ever offered, and it seems that people already understood that, as the first unit was sold for $3.7 million at a recent auction.
This LS7-powered, 1965 C2 Corvette Proves There Is Still Place For Custom-Built Pro-Touring Muscle Cars
In how bad of a state does a car need to be in order to be given up on? Apparently, it doesn’t matter for Greg Thurman, who saved a 1965 C2 Corvette that has been sitting in the desert for 30 years with much of its body missing. If you are a purist and hope to see a fully-restored, all-authentic C2 Corvette, you will be disappointed, because when Greg finished with the C2 Corvette, it became what can only be described as the pinnacle of custom-built, Pro-Touring American muscle cars.

Watch A C8 ’Vette Give A Ferrari 458 Specialé A Run For Its Money
It’s only been a while since Chevy started shipping the Corvette Stingray on the other side of the pond, and for the first time ever, they’ve decided to offer it with right-hand drive, serving markets like the U.K, Australia, and Japan. As these things are currently, hot off the oven, Mat Watson from CarWow decided to pit it against a similarly sized Ferrari 458 Specialé to see what’s what. Here’s how it went down.

I’m talking about the C8 Corvette ZR1, and a new report has shed some light on what we can expect.

Chevy Corvette Hybrid – The First AWD Vette in History
While Ford launched the GT supercar with an outrageous-for-a-Ford price tag, extreme rules for purchase, and very limited availability, GM was busy putting together the new mid-engined C8 Corvette. As a car that has become known as an affordable exotic with the performance credentials to match its appearance, it was only missing one thing: electrification. That’s about to change, however, as Chevy has just confirmed that the Vette Hybrid is on the way, and while that’ll be a first for the Vette nameplate, there’s an even more important first coming with it.

Wheels has previously featured it in a bunch of videos taking on cars like the Nissan R35 GT-R, the Tesla Model Y, a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500,, and a Chevy Camaro ZL1. Heck, it even went up against a Quad bike.

This Drag Race Between a 1974 Chevrolet Corvette And a 1976 Pontiac Firebird Formula Will Make You Sad About 1970s American Motoring
We can all agree that muscle cars are one of the best things America has given to the world. However, it all went downhill after 1971 thanks to the fuel crisis. Carmakers were forced to de-tune their previously exciting vehicles, spawning a variety of fast-looking cars with a lackluster performance at best. Despite making next to no power, you could still drag race the cars, which is why Cars and Zebras has provided us with this drag race between a 1974 Corvette 350 and a 1976 Pontiac Firebird Formula.

It’s always nice to hear about a father-son duo showing up at the drag strip with a nice custom build. This ’66 Chevelle is a prime case in point, but when you bring two cars out, well, you can go head-to-head.
I had no idea this GT-R vs Z06 duel was a father-son pairing, to begin with, until I looked at the comments section of this video that wheel put out. Now, once again, I can’t confirm the specs, so let’s look at the baseline numbers and you can work your way from there.

Callaway started by offering aftermarket turbocharger systems for BMW, Volkswagen, Porsche, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz cars. Its first product was launched in 1977 and was a C1 VW turbo kit. It continued with building a racing engine for IndyCar specification and after that, a turbocharged kit for Alfa Romeo’s 2.5-liter GTV-6 coupé.
It was this last project that caught the attention of Dave McLellan - Chief Engineer of the Corvette - and it was in 1987 when Callaway offered its first twin-turbo Corvette under the Regular Production Option (RPO) B2K program. Now, 35 years later, Callaway celebrates the program’s anniversary with the launch of a special appearance package for the 2022 Corvette Z51.

This 1960 Chevrolet Corvette Has Been Restored In a Very Rare Color
Classic Corvettes are, undeniably, a desirable piece of American automotive history.

Moreover, this one is finished in the rare Cascade Green and recently changed hands, for a pretty penny.

This Mashup Between A Porsche 911 and C3 Corvette Might Give you Nightmares
The creation you see here comes courtesy of Yasid Design, and goes by the name Porsche Concept Zero Two.

There are a total of three renderings, and while it does have a cool, cyberpunk-ish feel too it, is it too much to blend a Porsche 911 and C3 Corvette into one oddly strange package?

Chevrolet Corvette Z06 GT3.R Race Car
Most of the speculations prior to the launch of the C8 Corvette Z06 were based on the C8.R race car, especially about the 5.5-liter V-8. The leaks sure helped, but it the C8.R race car was used as a benchmark. Now, the automaker has decided to replace the C8.R with the Corvette Z06 GT3.R.
