2023 C8 Corvette Z06 tour! The new 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 is an impressive car, and it’s loaded with upgrades over the regular C8 Corvette. Today I’m taking you on a thorough tour of the C8 Z06, and I’m going to show you some of the quirks and features of the Z06 — and some of the upgrades over the regular Corvette.
The Z06 uses a new naturally aspirated 5.5 L V8 producing 670 hp (500 kW; 679 PS) at 8,400 rpm, 460 lb⋅ft (624 N⋅m) of torque at 6,300 rpm and has a redline of 8,600 rpm.This engine, dubbed the LT6, features a double overhead camshaft (DOHC) and a flat-plane crank, and surpasses the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series’ M159 engine to become the most powerful naturally aspirated production V8.
A modified version of this engine has powered the C8.R since 2019, and many features in the racing engine carry over to the road engine. The exterior features more aggressive aerodynamics including larger air intakes and prominent side scoops. A trunk is located at the rear, with additional storage space at the front of the car.
The cockpit has been designed to be driver-centric, with numerous controls mounted on the center console as well as utilizing a new hexagonal steering wheel. A 12 in (30.5 cm) digital screen replaces the instrument cluster and reflects one of the six driving modes selected, and is accompanied by an 8 in (20.3 cm) touchscreen./wikipedia
