2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Post by koimaster » October 3rd 2022, 9:27pm

Let’s get the criticism out of the way. The 2023 Corvette Z06 we sampled had some suspect panel gaps. In the spec provided, this car cost $162,000, so you’d expect top quality everywhere. The steering wheel is still an awkward square shape that makes it tough to find a comfortable grip. The interior is leagues better than every generation before, but the line of buttons for the climate control can be inscrutable in direct sunlight, and the wall it creates between the driver and passenger is still annoying. The dual-clutch gearbox will still occasionally deny downshifts.

That’s it. The new Z06 is an unbelievable car. An inherently special thing that feels it at any speed, with a presence just sitting still that cars three times its price wish they had.

Great car and engineering, but that side view from the door to the rear is just poorly proportioned IMO. I realize it was so they could put the trunk in rear and brag that it hold two sets of golf clubs. The Z06 is a better looking car than the Stingray however.

I saw a loaded up $160k pre-production Z06 at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green recently, and it was really well done.

And then there are the great pretenders with replica 356 taking bows as if their vw were a real Porsche. I called the guy on it and it was amusing to watch him pull his hair out arguing.
