I am one of the folks underwhelmed by the noise of the new C8 Corvette. It’s an excellent machine but I was left wanting more. And now “more” is knocking on the door. It arrives bearing a Z06 logo and tremendous, outrageous, excellent noise.

Word has it that this C8 Z06 will be packing a flat-plane crank and a dual-overhead cam setup. It sounds like it can rev to the moon. Based on the performance of the Stingray, the Z06 will likely make far more expensive machines look downright foolish. We should know more sometime this fall, and we can’t wait to learn all about this sure-to-be-insane thing from Chevy.
