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

When Chevrolet announced the 2023 Corvette Z06, everyone knew it would be special. But they didn't think that it would be auctioned to benefit the Thurgood Marshall College Fund. The result? $1 million was raised for a great cause. The Corvette Z06 is more than just a car--it's an American icon.

A Brief History of the Corvette Z06

The Corvette Z06 is a high-performance variant of the Chevrolet Corvette. It was introduced in 1963 as a racing package for the Corvette C2. The original Z06 featured a lightweight body, powerful engine, and upgraded suspension. It quickly became a favorite among Corvette enthusiasts and soon became its distinct model.

The current Corvette Z06 was introduced in 2015 as a 2016 model. It is based on the seventh-generation Corvette and features a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine. It is the most powerful production car ever made by Chevrolet.

The 2023 Corvette Z06 will be the first convertible Z06 since the 1963 model. It will also be the first production Corvette with an all-aluminum body. This new model is sure to be a hit with collectors and performance enthusiasts alike.

The first 2023 Corvette Z06 produced was auctioned by Barrett-Jackson. All of the proceeds are going to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.

This latest donation will help provide scholarships and support to students attending one of the 47 historically black colleges and universities in the Thurgood Marshall College Fund's network.

The Thurgood Marshall College Fund

The Thurgood Marshall College Fund is the nation's largest organization exclusively representing the Black college community. Its name is after Thurgood Marshall, the first African American Supreme Court Justice.
