Chevy makes new Corvette sing

  • Z06 coming as a 2023 model year car

  • High-revving V8 sounds like a race car not a road warrior

Chevrolet is getting ready to release the Z06 version of the new Corvette upon us, and like a politician or a peep show, Chevy keeps teasing out the good bits and telling us that the whole reveal is just around the corner. This time, it’s the sound of the flat-plane-crank V8 that’s expected to spin to more than 9,000 rpm.

You might want to get out your headphones for this clip of the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 that was posted to YouTube earlier today. It’s a sound that’s more like a classic naturally-aspirated F1 car or something from Indianapolis than any Corvette we’ve heard before.

Then the driver in the clip lifts off the throttle. Instead of the pops and crackles that accompany most modern engines, you instead get a very lumpy and very low-sounding idle. What we’d expect from a big block Corvette, not this 2023 Z06 screamer.

Chevrolet says it’s going to be the fall before we finally get to see the new Z06. When it arrives, it will include options like an FE2 suspension, driver mode selector visualization, and, the most high-performance of all, wireless phone projection.

What else are we expecting? A 5.5L V8 that makes more than 600 hp along with that stratospheric redline. Loads more aero add-ons than lesser models too to help tame the car. For now, just keep listening. And don’t expect it at showrooms before January next year based on that 2023 model year tag.
