We knew the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 can be particular. However even dwelling with a “common” C8 Corvette for a 12 months and a bit of over 40,000 miles did not adequately put together us for how particular. We realized that after spending a day at Grattan Raceway and testing each a convertible Z06 and a coupe Z06 outfitted with the Z07 package deal for this video.

Because it seems, you spend fairly a little bit of time together with your mouth hanging open as that 5.5-liter V-8 spins towards 8600 rpm, making 670 horsepower and that intoxicating flat-plane-crank howl. It is a good factor the automotive handles so effectively, too, since you wish to get again to the entrance straight shortly if solely so you may hear it repeatedly.
We examined each a convertible Z06 and a coupe outfitted with the high-performance Z07 package deal. You have seemingly already learn these check outcomes. If you have not, go click on the associated hyperlinks under. We’ll wait.

Like we mentioned: Arduous to imagine.
