    You've got a chance to win this 2023 70th Anniversary Edition Corvette Z06 convertible, a new American supercar that puts the world on notice. Arriving two years after the first production mid-engine Corvette Stingray debuted and captivated a worldwide audience, the Z06 is designed and engineered to act as a precision tool for the track. And, the 70th Anniversary Edition Z06 convertible with the Z07 Performance Package is the ultimate supercar.

    MECF members get bonus tickets here:

    The Z06’s striking appearance, sound and tactile feel are the result of intense focus. With new, wider sculpted front and rear fascia designs that define a confident stance and exotic proportions and a luxuriously-appointed interior, the Z06 is the ultimate supercar experience.

    “The new Corvette Z06 defines the American supercar,” said General Motors President Mark Reuss. “It builds on the distinctive design and groundbreaking dynamics introduced with the mid-engine Corvette and elevates them to deliver refined but uncompromising track capability with world-class performance.”

    The Z06 is set apart by its beating heart – the all-new 5.5L LT6, the highest horsepower, naturally-aspirated V-8 to hit the market in any production car, ever.

    An all-new flat-plane crankshaft design entices drivers to push the tachometer to a lofty 8,600 rpm, creating 670 hp. Engineers spent two years crafting a distinctive, rich exhaust tone unlike anything ever heard from a Corvette.

    Prize Details

    2023 70th Anniversary Z06 Corvette Convertible

    The limited production 70th Anniversary Edition Corvettes feature distinct wheels with commemorative wheel center caps, dark finish and Edge Red stripe.

    Inside the cockpit, drivers will find two-tone Ceramic leather GT2 with red stitching throughout, red seatbelts and sueded microfiber seat inserts and steering wheel.

    Additional features include:
    • 70th Anniversary Edition exterior badging, including special Corvette crossflags
    • Edge Red brake calipers
    • 70th Anniversary Edition logo on seats, steering wheel and sill plates
    • Rear bumper protector and trunk cover
    • Custom luggage set with red stitching and 70th Anniversary Edition logo

    The 2023 Corvette Z06 debuts with an all-new 5.5L DOHC V-8 engine that marks a return to natural aspiration for the track-capable performance model.

    Engine responsiveness and trackability, two characteristics of naturally aspirated motors, were the top priorities for providing an engaging driving experience for purists. As a result, it was determined that a clean sheet naturally aspirated powerplant was needed, with the goal of exceeding the power of any naturally aspirated production V-8 engine ever made. A lightweight, flat-plane crank design enables the engine to rev to the high rpms needed to create significant power.

    More than horsepower, the new LT6 is designed to complement all aspects of the Z06’s track-focused performance experience. From its 8,600-rpm redline and full racing-style dry-sump oiling system to meticulously tuned induction and exhaust systems, this engine exudes an entirely new and emotional character.

    The key to the LT6’s performance capability is a lightweight, low-inertia rotating assembly rooted in an all-new flat-plane crankshaft that, along with a comparatively short stroke (the distance each piston/connecting rod assembly travels with each rotation of the crankshaft), allows the engine to rev to its maximum range.

    A version of the LT6 has powered the C8.R race cars since 2019, and the rigors of endurance road racing helped engineers refine the engine’s performance and durability.

    I just bought my Z07 tickets for it is the only way I will be able to own one. I just bought a few but as my friend Charlie won an NCM raffle new Corvette buying only one ticket while others in front and behind him in line bought hundreds of dollars worth each I hope for the best.
    Enjoying my Shadow gray C8. What a car it is.
