The new, high-performance, surely track-devouring 2023 chevrolet corvette Z06 isn’t scheduled to debut until October 26, 2021, but we bet you’d love to see what it looks like. Well, thanks to the Corvette’s Instagram account, now you might have a pretty good idea.
In a post captioned with “Who needs spy photos when you’ve got the real thing?” and that included four images, the first of which declares it is “TIME TO GET REAL,” Chevrolet then dropped the image above of what we believe is a silver-painted ’23 Corvette Z06.
Compared to the image of a camouflaged Z06 (similar to one we’ve spotted testing) that’s also included in the Instagram post (there’s also a design sketch in the bundle), the C8 Z06 looks surprisingly plain. We think that’s because the car pictured lacks a more extreme aerodynamics package, which likely will be optional but definitely is present on that camo’d car—just check out its taller rear wing and more aggressive splitter.
That said, there are numerous similarities between the silver Corvette Z06 and the camouflaged prototype: The unique front intakes and bumper design, the new star-shaped side intake, and the door mirrors. It appears as though the Z06 also gets a new (and attractive) wheel design, too.
Not pictured in Chevy’s Instagram post? The Z06’s interior or details about its suspension setup or new twin-cam 5.5-liter flat-plane-crankshaft V-8, which is expected to throw down about 600 hp. For those details and more, we’ll probably need to wait another month for the 2023 Corvette Z06’s full reveal. Or maybe Chevy will Insta some more tidbits in the coming month.
