First Retail Production 2023 Corvette Z06 Convertible Raises $1 Million for Thurgood Marshall College Fund  

GM's Corvette brand is no stranger to the charity auction circuit, with past models raising hundreds of thousands (and even millions) for various causes. But the automaker's latest creation may take the cake: the 2023 Corvette Z06 has been auctioned at this year's Barrett-Jackson auction in support of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund. The GM team wasn't content to slap a new coat of paint on an old car. In addition, styling tweaks have been added that give it more of a racecar vibe.

A Brief History of the Corvette Z06

The Corvette Z06 first made its debut in 1963 as a high-performance option package for the Sting Ray. It was developed specifically for racing and featured several race-bred components like a larger engine, big brakes, and a stiffer suspension. Over the years, the Z06 has continued to evolve, becoming more and more track-focused with each new generation.

The most recent Z06 was introduced in 2015 and was powered by a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine. It quickly established itself as one of the most capable performance cars on the market. It was a favorite among track-day warriors and Corvette enthusiasts alike.

For the 2023 model year, Chevrolet is taking things to the next level with an all-new Z06. Despite the fact that this Corvette retains the same basic formula as its predecessor, the new Z06 features various improvements that make it even more capable on both the street and the track.

The money raised from the bid will go to support the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.

The Thurgood Marshall College Fund is a nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance to students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The money raised from the auction will go towards scholarships, programs, and initiatives that support HBCU students.
