When Chevrolet first revealed the 2023 Corvette Z06, we were treated to a cinematic video that showcased America’s newest supercar at the Pittsburgh International Race Complex. Nearly a year later, many of the first reviews came from the official Ride and Drive event held at the same track. Pitt Race, as it’s known, is also home to the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, a 10-day motorsport festival that’s been a tradition in the keystone state for 40 years.
Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that annually raises money for autistic and IDD charities. The organization just secured a 2023 Corvette Z06 70th Anniversary Coupe through Pittsburgh’s North Star Chevrolet, which they will give away to one lucky ticket holder in August 2023.

For eight generations, the Chevrolet Corvette has pushed the boundaries of technology, performance, and style while remaining an attainable cultural icon. Today’s new Corvette Z06 is the embodiment of every high-performance Corvette that has come before, punctuated with the 70th Anniversary package that celebrates the longest continuously-produced sports car nameplate. Chevrolet is offering two special edition versions for 2023, and this 70th Anniversary Corvette Z06 offered by the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix comes in Carbon Flash Black with Satin Black Metallic Stripes and 70th Anniversary badging on the car.
Other features of the 70th Anniversary models are the unique two-tone Ceramic Leather GT2 bucket seats, red seatbelts, contrasting red stitching, and a suede microfiber-wrapped carbon fiber wheel. You’ll find 70th Anniversary Edition logos on the seat headrests, steering wheel, door sill plates, and the special interior plaque. Edge Red brake calipers, Satin Graphite forged aluminum wheels with a red stripe, and 70th Anniversary center wheel caps completes the look. Owners will also receive a custom luggage set with 70th Anniversary logos. This is truly a collectible Corvette for the ages!
This 2023 Corvette Z06 features the bespoke 5.5L 670-hp LT6 V8 engine returns the performance-oriented Z06 model to its naturally aspirated roots thanks to its flat-plane crankshafts and the ability to rev to 8600 RPM! The sound from the engine is so distinctive that engineers created a custom exhaust designed to amplify that sound back to the driver, creating the ultimate feedback loop! Every one of the 670-hp/460-torque LT6 engines are hand-assembled by the master engine builders at the Chevrolet Performance Build Center.
The 70th Anniversary Corvette will also include the Z07 Performance Package which brings the ultimate high-wing aero package to the car along with Brembo Carbon Ceramic brakes, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 ultra-performance tires, and Magnetic Selective Ride Control.
