You'll have to be loaded to afford the 2024 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 in Australia, as General Motors Specialty Vehicles (GMSV) has announced that it costs an arm and a leg in the Pacific country.
Pricing starts at AU$336,000, which equals US$227,231 at today's exchange rates and doesn't include the delivery and on-road costs. Realistically speaking, interested parties are probably looking at roughly AU$350,000 (US$236,700) with no options whatsoever.

Offered in the 3LZ trim level only, the 2024 Corvette Z06 features sueded microfiber upholstery, leather-wrapped door cards, and instrument panel, Nappa leather on the GT2 bucket seats, and carbon fiber trim. It rides 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels, gets the specific suspension tuning complemented by the Magnetic Ride Control 4.0, and has 14.6-inch front and 15-inch rear brake discs made by Brembo.

Power comes from a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V8 with a flat-plane crank design. It can be revved up to 8,6000 rpm and produces 475 kW (646 ps/637 hp) and 595 Nm (439 lb-ft) of torque. An eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox delivers the thrust to the wheels and features a shorter 5.56 final drive ratio.

Get the Z07 Performance Package, and it will pull 1.22g of "road-hugging grip," the bowtie brand says. This option brings larger brakes with carbon ceramic discs backing up the carbon wheels wrapped in stickier tires. It also has unique suspension tuning, carbon fiber exterior elements that enhance aerodynamics, and a wing at the rear made of the same lightweight material.

Besides the Z06, GMSV has also introduced the 2024 Corvette Stingray. It's offered in two trim levels, the 2LT and 3LT, and for the Coupe, you're looking at a minimum of AU$175,000 (US$118,349) and AU$190,000 (US$128,494), respectively. The 2LT Convertible starts at AU$190,000 (US$128,494), and the 3LT Convertible at AU$205,000 (US$138,637).

Compared to the previous model year, the 2024 Corvette Stingray has a new spoiler design, two fresh alloy sets, and new colors added to the palette, including the Riptide Blue, Cacti Green, and Sea Wolf Gray. On the inside, the only things the automaker mentions are the animations on the new Drive Model Selector that are displayed on the large infotainment screen. The Stingray is available with a lighting option on both grades and the carbon fiber close-out panels on the 3LT. Rounding off the updates for 2024 is the power soft close latch on the new frunk.

Chevy says deliveries of the 2024 C8 Corvette will start in the fourth quarter of the year in Australia, and the E-Ray will join the Stingray and Z06 models. The electrified flavor, which also features all-wheel drive, will go on sale later, with pricing to be disclosed next year. Nevertheless, it might cost roughly the same as the track-oriented Z06 when it arrives at dealers.
