Have you ever dreamed of winning a new Corvette? You know, it happened last year to a CorvetteBlogger reader when Lance Miller called his number to tell him he had a won a new C8 Corvette! This year, the stakes are even higher as the grand prize is none other than a 2023 Corvette Z06! Your donations go to the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation and CorvetteBlogger readers can get 30% Bonus Entries with ticket packages starting at $25.
Chevrolet’s new Z06 is expected to elevate the Corvette’s performance to new levels with a new bespoke 670-hp flat-plane crank V8 engine tied to an 8-speed DCT for lightning-quick shifts. And with 60% of the car’s weight now residing on the widest set of wheels ever fitted on a production Corvette, Chevy says it will go 0-60 mph in 2.6 seconds!
The Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation has a coveted allocation for the 2023 Corvette Z06 through Whitmoyer Auto Group in Mount Joy, PA., and plan will be to order the car as a Red Mist Coupe and then load it up with the Z07 Performance Package, Magnetic Ride Control, visible Carbon Fiber wheels and the carbon fiber ground effects painted in carbon flash metallic. Other options include visible carbon fiber mirror caps, Carbon Flash badges, high wing spoiler, and black exhaust tips. The interior features the 3LZ Trim and Jet Black GT2 seats.
The new C8 Z06 returns to its naturally aspirated roots thanks to its flat-plane crankshafts and the ability to rev to 8600 RPM. The sound from the engine is so distinctive that engineers created a custom exhaust designed to amplify that sound back to the driver, creating the ultimate feedback loop! Every one of the 670-hp/460-tq LT6 engines is hand-assembled by the master engine builders at the Performance Build Center within the Corvette Assembly Plant. Following successful completion of the engine which includes a 20-minute dyno test, the engine builder’s signature is displayed on a plaque mounted to the top of the engine.
Chip Miller and his partner Bill Miller (no relation) created the Corvettes at Carlisle show in 1974 and Carlisle Events would become one of the largest organizers of classic and collector car events in the country. Today, Corvettes at Carlisle is the largest Corvette event in the world bringing together over 5,000 examples of America’s Favorite Sports Car annually to the town of Carlisle, PA.
Chip Miller was diagnosed with a little-known disease called Amyloidosis in December 2003 and he would pass away on March 25, 2004. Amyloidosis is a rare disease in which amyloid proteins deposit and accumulate in the body’s organs and tissue. Just 3,000 Amyloidosis cases are diagnosed in the United States each year. It affects middle-aged people and older, and men are more likely to be affected than women.
