The web has published spy photos of the new Z06, which looks pretty wide and aggressive.

The new week begins with the best series of photos of the new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 in action. A new 30-second video filmed in California shows us the back of two prototypes of the Corvette Z06 C8 merging with highway traffic in Valencia. Of course, they are still heavily disguised, and it is actually difficult to see the actual shapes and details. It is known that Chevrolet is preparing the Z06 as a rival to the Ferrari 458. It is nice that the engineers make sure that the hardcore Corvette can compete with its European counterparts.

According to preliminary information, the new Z06 will use a modified version of the 5.5-liter naturally aspirated V8 from the C8 R. If this turns out to be true, then the power will be higher than 500 horsepower of the racing car and 651 Nm, because it will not adhere to the rules of the series. A less likely option is the Cadillac Blackwing twin-turbo V8, which is expected to develop power up to 800 hp. and a torque of about 949 Nm.

As you would expect from a track-oriented Corvette, the new Z06 will receive some aerodynamic improvements combined with less weight. Other features compared to the “regular” Corvette C8 will almost certainly be large powerful brakes and a modified suspension.
