the new 2023 corvette z06 is right around the corner, as chevy has confirmed that it will make its debut october 26. we also now have our first official photo of the car, courtesy of this image showing a camouflaged z06 next to the c8.r race car. a teaser video also shows the z06 prototype testing at various racetracks in europe, including the nürburgring and the circuit de la sarthe, where the c8.r will be competing in the 24 hours of le mans.
we expect the z06 to share its engine with the race version of the mid-engine c8 corvette, which has a 5.5-liter flat-plane-crank v-8. the production model is expected to make upwards of 600 horsepower and use a dual-clutch automatic transmission.
earlier spy photos and videos of the z06 testing have given us a good idea of what the car looks and sounds like, and we're excited to hear the full details when the reveal takes place in a few months.
