[VIDEO] The C8 Corvette Z06 Is Let Off the Chain at the Nurburgring


CarSpyMedia recently shared a new Nurburgring video featuring the 2023 Corvette Z06 during its second week of testing at the 12.9 mile Nordschleife. The channel is run by professional spy photographer Stefan Baldau so the quality of the video is top-notch!

Right from the get-go we are treated to a sighting of the Z06 with the big wing Z07 package as it comes to a stop sign before pulling onto one of the roads surrounding the ‘ring and then we get to hear the car bang through three gears as it heads down the street.

The track action is just as good with the Corvettes looking even faster here than in previous Nurburgring videos. Watching the car go into the Carousel and hearing the grind of bodywork on the banking while the back suspension of the car is fully compressed is something to behold. It could be the engineering team was working on improving their segment times for the attempted hot lap that was eventually derailed by individual crashes by a BMW and a Tesla.

The video is pretty short by previous standards and only clocks in at 3:29, but its definitely worth the time to view if just to hear that exotic soundtrack and see a blue flame shooting out the exhaust every now and then. This video will certainly excite those who are already on a list for the upcoming Z06, and maybe a few more who wish they were!

  1. Man! They’re hurrying along pretty good there. Saw some late trail braking on deep entries. Yep…it’s fast and those drivers know what they’re doing for sure.

  2. Those 21-inch wheels with the short sidewall Michelins look hideous and probably ride even worse.

    They should build the car with homologated race wheel sizes – 18-inch for GT3 Racing?
    That is what Corvette and the other GT race teams runs.

    I hope the brakes are not sized for the big rims, otherwise how can we downsize and use exhisting 18-inch rims / tires for track days?

  3. Also, we get the very first look at the Z06’s new wheels! They’re much better looking than the base C8’s sub-standard choices.
