    It was back in 2019 that Chevrolet began teasing us with the C8 ahead of the official July 18th reveal through their use of short videos shared to social media. One of the defining elements of these teaser videos has been the inclusion of Easter Eggs for Corvette enthusiasts to interpret for additional clues. Now that the C8 Corvette Z06 is officially in the pre-launch phase, Chevy has offered two teaser videos so far and we think we might have spotted a pattern worth discussing here.

    It was back in Mid-July that Chevrolet dropped their first teaser video. We refer to it as the “Crank It Up” video as those are the words that first appear and the video focused on the new sound for the Corvette Z06 while words on the screen said, “The street will never sound the same.” The second teaser video starts with “Save The Date” and it shared the Official reveal date of October 26th. But was there something else in that video that had to do with the reveal?

    Watch the second teaser video again and then I’ll air my thoughts under it:



    Like the reveal of the C7 Corvette Z06 at the North American International Auto Show in January 2014, I believe that Chevrolet will show the new 2023 Corvette Z06 side-by-side with the Corvette C8.Rs. The Z06 will have the same (or similar) naturally-aspirated 5.5L DOHC flat-plane crank V8 engine as the C8.R and we also believe the aero on the street car to be derived from the C8.R as well. Fans of Corvette Racing know that the term “cascade engineering” was coined by former Corvette Racing Program Manager Doug Fehan to describe how each iteration of the street car leads to a better race car which leads to an even better street car. So it’s very much expected to see the C8.Rs prominently displayed alongside the new Z06s.

    Within the “Save the Date” video is a set of colored crossed-flag logos appearing across the screen in two places, at :08 and again at :13 seconds. The flags appear to reference the factory colors of the C8 Corvette and are shown when the Corvette C8.R is on screen, however in the second reference they start on the C8.R and then are carried over to the front of the Z06. It’s our thought that Chevy might be teasing the two official reveal colors of the Z06 with Red Mist and Amplify Orange chosen along with the Yellow and Hypersonic Gray liveries of the Corvette C8.Rs:

    And since we are talking about the reveal of the C8 Corvette Z06, the conversation we’ve had with others who closely follow the production team is whether or not the C8 Z06 Convertible will be unveiled at the October 26th event, or will Chevy save that model for another date. The precedent is that the C7 Convertible Z06 model was revealed separately from the Coupe at the New York Auto Show, and we know that Chevy also held back the C8 Convertible reveal from the 7-18-19 event until early October where it made its public debut at the Kennedy Space Center alongside the C8.R. If I were a betting man, I would guess the C8 Z06 Convertible reveal will happen at a separate event from the 10.26.21 reveal.

      Thank you CorvetteBlogger. If you are spot on, and I think you are, I would expect the yellow C8.R # 3 and the gray C8.R # 4 to be on the reveal stage. With an Amplify Orange C8 Z06 and a Red Mist Z06.

      Now with my going on your limb further, I will guess that also on stage will be the Z07 version in Amplify Orange one and the Red Mist will be the entry Z06.

      Well done CorvetteBlogger. We shall see but I think you have nailed this one perfectly.

          My guess is the base z06 will be in amplify orange and the z07 will be in the new gray or vise versa.

            I think you already smartly have your plans to attend the 2022 April NCM Bash — where that info will be shared. I know I will be there at the Bash so I can see the colors (or at least fenders) firsthand. We are going to have an MECF party there then!

              7 weeks till the Reveal is getting exciting. Hopefully if they have a second reveal for the Convertible they will not hold back production (Constrain) the Z06 Convertible also. Similar to what they did with the Stingray. If so - many will settle for a Coupe rather than what they really wish for a HTC.

                I would think the “ whole car “ (ZO6) WOULD BE on display at the April 22’ Michelin Bash 🤞

                    It will be a while until we learn the exact dates of the 2022 Bash. With Easter next year being late, April 17th, might the BASH, which is always held at an alternative time, be April 21st-23rd. I am in regular touch with my friend Bryce Burklow, NCM Events Coordinator, and as soon as dates are officially chosen, I will start publicizing them here.

                    The first of January is when NCM BASH registration usually opens — and nicely it is open to all so now worries about anyone missing out on a limited number of event “tickets.” Similarly, our MECF Breakfast Bash is also open to all (including friends and family too).

                    We will have stickies threads for both informing all with a link to Bash registration and also for the MECF Breakfast event.

                    Glad dolfanlon you are in for the win in every way.
