WATCH LIVE: Watch the Corvette C8 Z06 Unveiled
This is what it looks like!
Just like clockwork, Chevrolet is announcing the Z06 trim level of the latest Corvette and will add an even more potent option for fans of the C8.
Today is going to be the day that we finally get to learn everything that we want to know about the new Chevrolet Corvette Z06. The time has come to finally pull the covers off and unveil every detail.
Up until now, we have been putting together the pieces along with confirming some details. While we don’t know it all, what we do know is that this monster is going to sport a 5.5L flat-plane crank V8 that would produce a rumored 617 hp. In order to accomplish those numbers, we have also heard that the engine is going to crank through some pretty crazy RPM.
As Corvette tiptoes away from its muscle car roots and more towards an exotic machine, these details really all fall in line with the exotic ideology. What we didn’t know until today, though, it’s just how high this engine was going to rev. In a teaser dropped by Chevrolet that features the likes of several celebrities, we learned that the machine is going to crank to 8600 RPM which creates quite an angelic sound.
This time, we will get the final pieces of the puzzle to bring together what the world will be given in the C8 Z06. Chevrolet has built up a stout reputation to live up to, not only with the Chevrolet nameplate but also with the recent move to completely reconfigure the model to become more like a supercar than ever before.
Will the 2023 Corvette Z06 be the supercar that enthusiasts are dreaming of? Only time will be able to tell that story. The official beginning of that story starts now!
