The Corvette has long been America’s sports car. Faster, lighter, and lower to the ground, the Corvette has always outshined the pony cars including the Ford Mustang and sibling rival, Chevy Camaro. The current generation Corvette upgraded from an amazing sports car to a mid-engined supercar.
Now Chevy has unleashed the track ready 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Purpose-built to dominate the track, its flat-plane V8 is capable of 670 horsepower making it the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 in production. When mated onto the Corvette platform, you’re talking about 0 to 60 acceleration in just 2.6 seconds.
The Corvette Z06 is not a supercar. It’s an American HyperCar!
Remember when Ford introduced the Mustang Shelby GT350 with the flat plane crank engine? It sounded an amazing and was revolutionary for an American sports car.
Chevy’s engineers weren’t going to be left behind and created a flat-plane crank engine of their own with a redline of 8600 rpm. That’s 2000 rpm higher than the standard Corvette Stingray. The results are amazing. And the sound is incredible.
Of course, if you have nearly 700 horsepower in a Corvette chassis, you’d better be able to stop it fast. A car this capable requires some serious braking ability, and its standard 6-piston front/4-piston rear brakes are designed to give you just that. Available carbon ceramic brakes provide state-of-the-art braking performance for track demands.
