Proceeds Benefiting Charity

The proceeds from the sale of the first retail 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 70th Anniversary Edition were donated to Operation Homefront. Taking place at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction, the vehicle sold for $3.6 million. This is a record sale for a charity vehicle donated by a manufacturer at Barrett-Jackson! Operation Homefront is a national nonprofit organization focused on building strong, stable, and secure military families. 100 percent of the winning bid from Rick Hendrick, chairman and CEO of Hendrick Automotive Group and owner of 14-time NASCAR Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports, benefits Operation Homefront.

Brig. Gen. (ret.) John I. Pray Jr., president and CEO of Operation Homefront had this to say:

We are deeply grateful to our friends at Chevrolet and Barrett-Jackson for choosing Operation Homefront as the beneficiary of this incredible auction… The proceeds from the sale of this sensational Corvette Z06 will go a long way to helping us help our military families overcome their financial hardships and have the opportunity to thrive in the communities – our communities – they’ve worked so hard to protect.

Performance That Sounds Like A Win 

The Z06 is purpose-built to dominate the track. The newest Corvette features a flat-plane V8 capable of 670 horsepower, making it the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 in production. For the speed racers at heart, it will take you from 0 to 60 mpg in just 2.6 seconds with a redline of 8600 rpm – 2000 rpm higher than the Stingray.

Unbeatable Stopping Power 

Every powerful, capable engine needs some serious braking ability. The all-new Z06 Corvette features standard 6-piston front/4-piston rear brakes. They are designed to give you more than enough break power to match its impressive engine. Providing state-of-the-art braking performance, the sports vehicle also has available carbon ceramic brakes to make sure you can meet track demands. 

Sculpted To Soar In Every Way 

The Corvette Z06 is as commanding as it is functional. It features wider fenders, quarter panels, and fascias than the Stingray. Also, its standard ground effects and spoiler optimize aerodynamic drag and powertrain cooling efficiency. Replaceable spoiler wicker bills, rear brake cooling ducts, removable front fascia panel and front underwing stall gurneys increase downforce. This keeps the Z06 poised and planted as you round the track.
