The First C8 Corvette Z06 Will Be Sold at Barrett-Jackson

The 2023 Corvette Z06 will easily be the most extreme sports car to ever be assembled in Bowling Green. Thanks to the folks at Barrett Jackson, one lucky collector will have a chance to take home the first retail production example at the brand’s Scottsdale 2022 auction.


Unveiled in October 2021, the new Z06 packs a 5.5-liter LT6 V-8, complete with dual overhead cams and a flat-plane crankshaft. It’s the most potent atmospheric V-8 to ever enter production. The motor provides an unmatched 670 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, all while revving to a ridiculous 8,600 rpm. Combined with revised bodywork and other C8.R-derived tweaks, the car promises to shake up the current supercar landscape.


The first Z06 will be sold no reserve in lot #3009 at the Scottsdale auction and should cross the block at approximately 8:30 p.m. mountain time on January 29. The full auction sale price of the car will go to the Operation Homefront charity which helps U.S. military families in need.
