Finally, the Chevrolet configurator for the 2023 Corvette Z06 is now available. Fans who have been waiting to build their Z06s can now do so, perhaps spending the next eight hours examining how much their pick of choices will cost their bank account.
As for us and our non-existent money for the Corvette Z06 2023, we’d rather spend a lot of options making sure we get the best our imaginary dollars can buy. The last most expensive build for zip code 33101 cost over $182,000 – something affordable or unaffordable, depending on how you look at the latest version of the Z06.
The configurator starts with the body style, which is a choice between a coupe ($106,695) and a convertible ($114,195). Since our goal is to spend as much as possible, we opted for a convertible.
There are three trim levels to choose from, with the 3LZ being the most expensive for an MSRP starting at $127,545. For the exterior paint, we opted for the Red Mist Metallic Tintcoat – a $995 color option. We didn’t choose any line because there are more expensive options than that.
For the wheels, we went for carbon fiber wheels which were spotted at an additional $11,995 cost and only paired with summer tires. Speaking of tires, the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2R is part of the Z07 Performance Package, priced at $8,995.
Other wheel options include the Wheel Lock Kit in Black ($125), wheel center caps bearing the Jake logo ($260), and Brake calipers painted Bright Red ($695).
Other options and accessories include Competition Sport bucket seats, Visible Carbon Fiber Aero Package, 2-Piece premium leather travel bag in Jet Black with crossed flag logo, front lift with memory, Level 2 Carbon Fiber Interior Package, Jake graphic, Cross flag emblem Dark Stealth, premium indoor car cover in Gray (fully rendered C8.R), and Corvette Museum Delivery – among many others.
Including a $1,395 destination shipping fee and a $3,000 gas waste tax, our total build was $182,180.
