UPDATE 10/20/21: Ahead of the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06’s official unveiling, the brand released a teaser video—a short version of a longer film that will be released when the car is revealed—that happens to drop at least one tantalizing nugget we didn’t previously have. In the video, we find out that the Z06’s flat-plane crank V-8 revs out to 8,600 rpm. That’s notably higher than the late Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R‘s 8,250 rpm redline.
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.
