The new Chevrolet Corvette was launched in a brutal track version with a 680-horsepower V8 engine.
The killer Ferrari Corvette Z06 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h for three seconds. The roaring V8 without a spindle speed of 8600 rpm – the fastest high-speed V8 engine ever.

The mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette has been a real sales success, and customers are lining up to get the car. Anyone who has been waiting to buy a Corvette need not despair. Now the brutal track version of the Corvette Z06, the car you’ve been waiting for, has been launched.
– It is a racing car that you can drive on the street, Chevy lovar.

The relatively old 503-horsepower V8 from the regular Corvette has been replaced by a modernized 5.5-liter, aluminum V8 with 680 hp and 623 Nm. The engine does not have a turbo – but it has a very high speed.

Red flag at 8400 rpm

The red mark on the tachometer does not appear until 8600 rpm. Peak power is reached at 8400 rpm. Such a high-speed V8 engine had never before appeared in a production car. Each engine will have a plaque on the intake manifold with the signature of the person who built it from start to finish.

It’s a pure racing engine. The V8 has twin overhead camshafts, dry sump lubrication and a flat crankshaft. According to the American press, the sound should be fatter than that of Ferrari. The engine has sodium and titanium exhaust valves, connecting rods and forged pistons to handle top speeds. Chevy engineers spent two years tuning the exhaust system to get the perfect sound. And, of course, the sound looks promising in the first movies released.

An acceleration time between 0-100 km/h has not been announced, but up to 60 mph takes 2.6 seconds, so the metric sprint will undoubtedly last less than three seconds. Top speed is not yet official.

For the track enthusiasts, the car comes with a performance package that includes a sporty chassis, magnetic steering damper, and carbon fiber disc brakes. A carbon fiber rear spoiler is also included.

But already in the Standard Edition, the new Corvette Z06 is pure eye candy. The car comes with a front splitter, a smaller rear spoiler and a carbon fiber package as an option. Compared to a regular Corvette, the front and rear are wider and have additional air intakes.

Let’s not forget the interior. The Corvette Z06 features a carbon fiber-wrapped steering wheel, carbon fiber paddle shifters and other carbon fiber details as an option. But, of course, it is very similar to a regular Corvette.

Deliveries of the Corvette Z06 will begin in time for next summer. Pricing will be announced as the launch date approaches.
