The 2020 Corvette C8 has to lead to quite the excitement. Chevrolet is prominent for maintaining its tradition of detailed perfection in its design. Well, for the next model, Chevrolet may come out on the top.
Through the spy-shots, inside sources, and information leaks, we can picture the 2022 Corvette Z06.
The Chevy Corvette Z06 is expected to come into this world sometime in 2021 intended for the 2022 model year.
Based on the many rumors that are circulating, we have the following info.
A glance at the engine
This latest model is supposed to include a naturally aspirated 5.5 L V8 flat-plane crank engine slightly similar to the C8.R racing car.
According to the recent report by Motor Trend, the car will evidently rev up to an astonishing 9000 RPM. If this is true, then it beats the V12 of the Ferrari 812 Superfast and the Lamborghini Huracan Evo’s V10. 992 GT3 is also speculated to redline at 9000 RPM, which proves how amazing the 2022 year’s model is going to be.
Yet, it is still ambiguous as to the amount of power the Z06 Corvette is considered to produce. Informants say that it could be estimated up to 625 hp and 657 Nm or 485 lb-ft of torque.
If all the news indeed proves to be authentic, then the Corvette Z06 will be the most powerful naturally aspirated engine, dominating many other models like Voodoo V8 of the Shelby GT350.
Several sources disclose that the Z06 will also involve an overhead twin-cam design.
The beast screams identical to the C8.R and more like a Ferrari. But it is for sure to make you jump out of your skin.
According to Car and Driver, the car comes with 8-speed dual-clutch auto transmission, just like its predecessor. Plus, it will have the same tires as that of C7, the carbon-fiber wheels, and 275/30R20 – 345/25/R21 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
The car may also include characteristics like wireless charging, heated seats, a comfortable and luxurious interior. A Performance Data Recorder is expected to be included to capture the videos of the drives.
It is obvious that Chevrolet will definitely upgrade the chassis and the suspension of this latest Corvette Z06.
Price and Launch Date
If we calculate the prices based on computations and price shoot ups, it is predicted to be a round figure rate of $85,000. The Z06 is projected to go on sale sometime in 2021.
These are the rumored aspects of the upcoming 2022 Chevy Corvette Z06. The nine-grand redline already has us going bananas. All we can do right now is wait for more updates to be unveiled in the future.
