C7 Z06 meets the 2023 Corvette Z06 in this 4K video comparison
Yesterday we published the 2023 Corvette Z06 spied at CMAs in Nashville earlier this week by our friend Byron Glover Jr and the YouTube Drive channel 615. I didn’t know there was basically part two of that encounter with Byron following the car on a dump truck along Broadway and Nashville’s party district, and then across the Cumberland River with the city skyline lit up in the background. . This is so much better than any after party that the CMA stars attended!
The Z06 was then dropped off at Nissan Stadium, where it would be loaded into reliable trucking and taken away for its next scheduled appearance. But before it was loaded, Byron was able to get a side-by-side comparison with his 2015 Corvette Z06, which may just be the first time a C8 Z06 has been shown with a C7 Z06 outside of General Motors. .
From Guide 615 via YouTube:
The world’s first comparison between a 2023 C8 Z06 and a 2015 C7 Z06. This 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Mid-Engine C8 Z06 was finished in a red mist on the natural interior. This spec was a 2023 Z06 convertible and did not have the Z07 package. I compare it to my 2015 Corvette C7 Z06 finished in arctic white on an adrenaline red interior. You can also hear both drains idle in one clip.
The C8 Z06 LT6 engine produces 670hp at 8,400rpm and 460Nm of torque at 6,300rpm and is also equipped with double overhead cams, dry sump lubrication and flat crankshaft. It reaches 8,600 rpm.
Another great video, Byron! Thanks for sharing!
