Two weekends ago we were all excited as the first photos of the 2023 Corvette Z06 in Rapid Blue were shown. In that post, we stated that the only color yet to be seen on America’s newest sportscar is Caffeine Metallic. That was mostly true as it was the only regular production color that the Z06 had not yet been seen with, but also incorrect as we are still waiting to see the 70th Anniversary Editions on the Z06 as well.
But at least we can now check the Caffeine Metallic box as seen thanks to the folks at GM Authority. In a photo posted yesterday, they are showing the Caffeine Metallic Z06 wearing the Z07 Performance Package with the high wing, dive planes, and the Spider forged aluminum wheels.
We also spied a CTF sticker on the car. Thanks to some new intel posted on the MECF, we have learned that there are at least 73 Corvette Z06 CTF cars in existence. Our previous tally was 55 after a VIN pic from an Acclerate Yellow Corvette Z06 was shared online last month.
Getting a C8 Z06/Z07 with the Caffeine Metallic exterior is one sure way of having a ‘unique’ Corvette. Caffeine Metallic was introduced in 2022 and only accounted for 385 of the 25,000 new Corvettes produced during the 2022 model year. If it performs like Zeuz Bronze did in 2020 and 2021, we’ll expect Caffeine’s second-year production totals to be even less.
Top Color Choices for the 2022 Corvette Stingray Were Torch Red, Arctic White, and Hypersonic Gray
