New footage from the tests of the powerful Chevrolet Corvette Z06 hit the networkMay 7, 2021
The camouflage is still difficult to see the outside details of the new item, however, according to our colleagues, the V8 engine makes a fantastic sound.
The mid-engined American supercar Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has again been caught by photo spies. According to eyewitnesses, the sound of the engine indicates that the engineers are finalizing the control system for starting the car.
The engine loves to rev up and has a high-pitched sound that we are used to associating with European supercars. In some cases, after shifting to second gear, the tires chirp. This confirms rumors that the Z06 is using a version of the 5.5-liter V8 engine from the C8.R race car.
Its power allegedly reaches 617 horsepower. The transmission, according to unconfirmed official information, is an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. Thanks to the spy photos, we know that the Corvette is being tested with two different exhaust systems.
At one time, a supercar with a pair of square-shaped outlet holes on each side, as in the current model, and a car with four round pipes coming out of the center, fell into the frame.
Moreover, some foreign auto experts doubt that the Z06 can be available with both of these layouts. It is possible that ZR1 could get into the frame.
Earlier, AutoTimesNews said that the Hyundai Venue compact crossover has surpassed the sales of the Suzuki Vitara Brezza. The Korean SUV has become the leader of the Indian car market.
