It seems like Corvette fans have been waiting an eternity for Chevrolet to launch the Build and Price Configurator for the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06. This means fans can now start building their Z06 with an idea of how much it’ll affect their bank accounts. But, before we jump in, be warned, as one can lose hours of their day with this.
There’s an assortment of different builds and configurations that can be pieced together with many options, colors, and packages to choose from. But for the sake of simplicity, we’ll focus on the most expensive build we put together, as well as a budget one, and leave all the in-betweens for you to make yourselves.
2023 Corvette Z06 Configurator: Details
For our expensive build, we decided to piece together a 3LZ Z06 Convertible paired with the 70th Anniversary package, which already brings the price to $136,140. Adding the Z07 package for $8,995 requires a choice of ground effects which adds $10,495 for the visible carbon fiber aero package that includes the high wing. Before we’ve even dived into the fun stuff, we already have an expensive car. Of course, you can’t get the 70th Anniversary interior without adding the Competition Sport seats and the level 2 carbon fiber interior package. The Front Lift option is a must to make getting to parking lots a bit easier, and also, the black exhaust tips help finish off the overall look of our Carbon Flash Metallic Convertible. With the addition of the R8C Museum Delivery, our price comes in at $166,610, including the $1,395 destination charge and the $3,000 Gas Guzzler tax.
Our “budget-build” is more straightforward with a 1LZ trim package and standard aluminum Spider wheels. Without any other options, the price comes in at $109,295, which is likely the lowest you can go. But, if you want that “Z07” look with the rear wing, you can opt for the carbon flash metallic aero package that adds $8,495 to the price. Unfortunately, that addition also adds $8,495 for Brembo’s carbon ceramic brakes, which brings the price up to $126,685.
We’ll pass the tool over to you, but be prepared to lose immense productivity as you build your dream cars. We spent a couple of hours messing with the configurator, and we definitely don’t have any regrets.
