The new generation Corvette coupe demonstrates the beautiful sound of a powerful V8June 27, 2019
We look forward to the presentation of a completely new generation of sports coupe Chevrolet Corvette – it will take place on July 18. This video highlights various moments that demonstrate the powerful sound of a V8 engine exhaust.
Here we publish a video created by a YouTube named Chris Bryan. This clip combines dozens of meetings with the new C8, where the sound of a car’s exhaust is clearly audible, a total of more than four minutes of a terrible V8 growl. By listening to different stretches in one rapidly changing video, we can definitely hear some differences between some of these prototypes.
This should come as no surprise – it has been rumored for a long time that the new C8 will offer a range of V8 engines, including a new 4.2-liter DOHC installation based on Cadillac’s Blackwing engine. An incredibly powerful Corvette is also expected – perhaps a hybrid – with a power of over 1000 horsepower. And there are still disputes about the launch of the basic C8 model with a naturally aspirated DOHC engine or the familiar 6.2-liter LT1, which is under the hood of the current generation of the C7 model.
Honestly, the identification of engines on prototypes solely on the exhaust note is one more guessing game. Changes in exhaust systems can cause the same engine to sound completely different.
But, nevertheless, our ears reveal three distinctive notes in this clip. There are many low-speed, low-frequency roars, which are not much different from the current 6.2-liter V8, and we also hear some hoarse creaking tones that can come from the DOHC engine. And then we have a prototype of the C8 race car, which appears at the 42-second mark, creating a terrible scream that doesn’t sound like any Corvette we have ever heard.
