First 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 Fetches $3.6 Million At Auction


Barrett-Jackson has dropped the hammer on the first retail of the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, priced at $3.6 million. This is almost the most expensive Corvette sold at auction, if not for the 1967 Chevy Corvette L88 Coupe which sold for $3.85 million in 2014.

Unsurprisingly, the winning bid for the VIN001 2023 Corvette Z06 went to Rick Hendrick, founder and CEO of Hendrick Companies. Hendrick also won the auction of the first mid-engine Corvette Stingray of 2020, for a hammer price of $3 million.

All proceeds from these sales are donated to Operation Homefront, a national non-profit organization focused on building strong, stable, and secure military families.

“The proceeds from this sensational sale of the Corvette Z06 will go a long way toward helping us help our military families overcome their financial difficulties and have the opportunity to thrive in the communities – our communities – they have worked so hard to protect,” said Brig. General (ret.) John I. Pray Jr., president and CEO of Operation Homefront.

Corvette Z06 VIN 001 2023 comes with a 70th Anniversary Edition package. It comes with custom Ceramic two-tone leather seats, paired with suede seat inserts, a suede steering wheel and a special set of birthday branded luggage.

The non-VIN001 70th Anniversary Edition Corvette comes with a unique set of wheels with red edges and anniversary center caps, along with red brake calipers, rear bumper guard and trunk cover. It is also available exclusively in Carbon Flash Metallic or a new white color called White Pearl Metallic Tri-Coat. A special package is also available for the Stingray model in 3LT trim.

The new Corvette Z06 2023 sports a naturally aspirated 5.5 liter LT6 V8 engine with dual overhead camshafts and a flat crankshaft, redlining at 8,600 rpm. It produces up to 670 horsepower (500 kilowatts) and 460 pound-feet (623 Newton-meters) of torque.
