With the introduction of the first mid-engined Z06 and with next year coinciding with the model’s 70th anniversary, it’s safe to say the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette is hotly anticipated.
While we already know the key technical specs of the updated model, recently leaked information has also confirmed just what fancy options you’ll be able to add to it as well.
As Corvette Action Center reports, Chevy dealers are now able to configure 2023 Corvette Stingray, Z06, and Z06 70th Anniversary models through internal General Motors systems.
Although prices are yet to be confirmed, the order guide does specify which paint colours will be offered with 14 hues in total, including an exclusive Abalone White Tricoat finish for the 70th Anniversary model.
A range of brake caliper colours, full-length racing stripes, two removable roof options, and several badge colours are also offered.
Equally broad is the range of interior options, with leather or suede upholstery offered in stand-out colour schemes including Adrenaline Red and two-tone Tension Blue and Twilight Blue.
Two seat design options are offered – competition sport or GT2 – with power-adjustment and memory functionality also available.
A suede headliner, 14-speaker Bose audio system, head-up display, and a performance data recorder with front and rear cameras round out the extensive options list.
While some features such as high gloss woven carbon fibre trim remain exclusive to the Z06, the regular C8 Stingray will sport updated wheel designs, a new Blackout interior, and an optional accessory engine cover that’s yet to be revealed.
Meanwhile, the main highlight of the all-new Z06 is clearly its 670hp 5.5-litre naturally aspirated flat-plane crank V8 engine which will be specific to this hardcore model.
The order books for the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette officially open on March 24, with production set to commence in the Northern Hemisphere’s summer of 2022.
