During the 2022 Corvettes at Carlisle event, Corvette Executive Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter revealed that the đứng đầu speed for the C8 Corvette Z06 would be 195 miles per hour. Meanwhile, Chief Engineer Josh Holder – Tadge’s right hand man – confirmed with CorvetteBlogger that the đứng top speed of the 2023 Corvette Z06 with the high-downforce Z07 package will be 189 miles per hour.The Z07 aero package showroom 650 pounds of downforce (which also counts as drag) and is the most aggressive aero package ever fitted to lớn a production Corvette to-date, thanks lớn its two-post high wing, dive planes, và front splitter.

In Tadge’s own words:This really is not a numbers car, we never intended to be…It was always intended lớn be the most pure expression of track and driver capability. That’s what we were thinking about, but the numbers are pretty good. You’ve got 670 horsepower, that’s very, very impressive. We published it before, but zero lớn 60 on this car is 2.6 seconds. So honestly, when we broke three seconds on the stingray, we were a little worried because this car isn’t a drag racer per se. We’re a little bit worried, but it pulls like crazy it, launches great, it’s got the big wide tire patches in the back so zero khổng lồ 60 in 2.6 seconds. We haven’t really talked about it, in fact, we haven’t even done our testing at reveal, but the đứng đầu speed of the car is 195 miles an hour which is pretty good.It’s especially good given the downforce that we have on this car. The lift to drag ratio on this oto is the best we’ve ever done, so you get pretty substantial downforce with reasonable drag & that lets you run to lớn 195 miles an hour. Quarter mile 10.6 at over 130 miles an hour so even though it’s not a numbers oto per se, it does vary respectively. But where it’s really going to lớn shine, I believe, when we put the car out there is lap track times. That was its reason for being…all the decisions that went into it…we’re all focused on that, and so people who love khổng lồ track their cars I think they’re gonna they’re probably phối personal records at many tracks driving this car.All that said, the numbers that Tadge and Josh quoted are still unofficial, as the team has yet to bởi a proper vị trí cao nhất speed test, which consists of two runs back lớn back và the recorded average being the final number. The same holding pattern can be said for an official C8 Corvette Z06 Nurburgring time.Even if 200 mph isn’t possible out of the new Z06, which prioritizes grip, downforce, và cornering, the new supercar will be far from the vị trí cao nhất of the heap in the C8 Corvette family. It’s possible that Chevrolet will make its fastest Corvettes yet with incoming top-of-the-line trims such as the twin-turbo C8 Corvette ZR1, & the 1,000-horsepower Zora hybrid hypercar.
