Chevrolet has released the first photo of the most powerful and fastest version of the new generation Corvette – the Z06. The premiere will take place on October 26, 2021, writes Autonews.
The new Z06 will differ from the standard Stingray with a different front bumper in the style of the racing Corvette C8.R, larger fenders, wider air intakes and new wheels.
Previously, Chevrolet posted a video of the Corvette Z06 testing at the Nürburgring North Loop in Germany, as well as at the Belgian Spa Francorchamps, where the 24 Hours of Le Mans is held.
According to preliminary information, the Corvette Z06 will receive a 5.5-liter V8 with 626 horsepower (651 Nm). This is slightly less than the power of the previous generation supercar engine, but significantly more than the standard Stingray with a 502-horsepower unit.
The number of modifications to the new Corvette is expected to grow to four in the future. In addition to the Stingray and the Z06, the model will have a hybrid as well as an all-electric powertrain.
