The new mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette C8 already boasts a top speed of 194 mph and can sprint from 0-60 in under 3 seconds, but when it comes to supercars, the more performance, the merrier. Enter the Z06. Based on a new teaser video released by Chevrolet, the upcoming Z06 is going big for 2023 as the first performance model of the C8.
The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was first introduced in the 1960s as an option package geared at drivers looking for track-level performance. The original Z06 upgraded the standard Corvette’s handling and braking, and came with a supersized fuel tank to cut down on refueling during a race, earning it the nicknames “Big Tank” and “Tanker.”
