It will be offered in one of two colours.
The 70th Anniversary Edition will feature unique badges.
It will be based on the 670-horsepower Z06.
This year will be another huge year for the C8 Chevrolet Corvette. The all-new supercar-killing Z06 will hit the road and if we’re lucky, we will get to see what other versions GM has in store. Between now and then, Chevy will celebrate the Vette’s 70th year with a special 70th Anniversary Edition.
This new commemorative Corvette will be based on the 2023 Z06 meaning it will be powered by the new flat-plane crankshaft 5.5-litre LT6 V8 engine that produces 670 horsepower at 8,400 rpm and 460 lb.-ft. of torque at 6,300 rpm. This is only one aspect that will make the 70th Anniversary Edition special. According to CorvetteBlogger, it will include the following features:
White Pearl Metallic Tri-Coat with optional Satin Matrix Gray Stripes or Carbon Flash Metallic with optional Satin Black Metallic Stripes
70th Anniversary Exterior Badging – Flags and Side 70th badge
Edge Red Brake Calipers
70th Anniversary Wheel Center Caps
Carbon Flash Wheel with Edge Red Stripe
Carbon Flash Mirror and Spoilers
White Ceramic GT2 Seats with Red Stitching; Optional Competition Sport Seats
Red Seat Belts
Suede Interior Steering Wheel
70th Anniversary logo on Seats, Steering Wheel, and Sill Plates
Edge Red Engine Cover
Rear Bumper Protector / Trunk Cover
Custom Luggage Set with Red Stitching and 70th Anniversary Logo
As this was a surprise find, it’s not known exactly when the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 70th Anniversary Edition will become available, nor do we have pricing information although it looks as though it will start out as a Z06 3LZ.
