    Detroit News Readers Name the 2023 Corvette Z06 as ‘Best in Show’ at the Detroit Auto Show

    By Keith Cornett: Sept 21, 2022

    During the Detroit Auto Show’s media days, hometown newspaper The Detroit News sent nearly 100 readers to the show with the goal of picking their favorite vehicles for a number of different categories. In a sea of trucks, SUVs, and slew of new electric vehicles, it was the 2023 Corvette Z06 that readers picked as “Best in Show” for the 2022 event.

    That assessment seems to jive with other others who attended the show, namely President Joe Biden who told his Secret Service detail on the day of his visit to the Detroit Auto Show that he would be driving the Orange sports car back to Washington.

    But the awards for Chevrolet’s new supercar didn’t stop there. Recognizing the C8 Z06’s new status for performance with the most powerful naturally-aspirated V8 engine that revs to 8600 RPM, its unique carbon fiber aero, and visible carbon fiber wheels that sheds 41-lbs of unsprung weight, the Detroit News jurists also named the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 as the car to own “If Money Were No Object.”

    The only other Detroit Auto Show award for General Motors was for “Most Electrifying” with Detroit News readers giving that nod to the Cadillac Lyriq.

    Ford’s Shelby GT500 took the award for the “Muscle Machine” category with its track-focused 760-hp V8, while the Ford Bronco picked up two awards as “Bargain Buggy” for its Bronco Sport model, and the “Off-Road Warrior” went to its Bronco Raptor edition.

    The Winners of the Detroit News Readers’ Choice Awards:

    ● HOTTEST TECH: Ford Mustang Mach-E
    ● MOST ELECTRIFYING: Cadillac Lyriq
    ● BARGAIN BUGGY: Ford Bronco Sport
    ● OFF-ROAD WARRIOR: Ford Bronco Raptor
    ● FAMILY HAULER: Jeep Grand Wagoneer
    ● MUSCLE MACHINE: Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
    ● TOP CONCEPT: Lincoln L100
    ● IF MONEY WERE NO OBJECT: Chevrolet Corvette Z06
    ● BEST IN SHOW: Chevrolet Corvette Z06

      Unfortunately, it would also win the "The car you want, but can't get" award too, beating out the Porsche GT3 for top honors.
      Current: 2022 PDK GT4 (2-way MCS remote dampers)

          “IF MONEY WERE NO OBJECT: Chevrolet Corvette Z06”

          Interesting category to be in. Normally you would think this is for Lamborghini and Ferrari. I guess it actually makes sense when you look at the average American.

          It turns out that the 2022 US average income is $63,214, the median is $44,225, and only 15% of American workers have an annual salary as big as the Z06!

          That makes the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 the American dream car.

            I save up to buy toys outright and so I dream about the future car for 1-2 years, depending on what I am getting. So to me it is also a dream car.

            If you like options for the Z06, I think we’re closer to top 10% earners, right?
            Coupe, 1LT, Rapid Blue, orange seat belts and black interior. ETA Late 2021.

            First mods: tinted windows, orange DIY stitching, orange 12 o clock stripe on steering wheel, orange EL-wire in the cabin, orange engine cover, orange painted grille protectors and orange led light in engine bay✌️😎
