C8 Corvette Z06 Tears Up The Auto Club Speedway

At the heart, the C8 Corvette Z06 is a 5.5L LT6 engine that creates a breathtaking 670 horsepower by utilizing an all-new, lightweight, flat-plane crankshaft that allows drivers to push the tachometer to an unprecedented 8,600rpm (consider that all of Corvette’s predecessors red-lined just north of 6,500rpm).  This naturally-aspirated engine provides the highest level of responsiveness and trackability, both of which were top priorities to the engineers behind its creation.  In addition, its engineers spent two years crafting the car’s unique exhaust tone, which is unlike anything previously heard coming from a Chevy Corvette.

Today, the YouTube Channel Speed Phenom puts the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 to the test on a racetrack as he recently went to the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA. We finally get to see the new Z06 being pushed to its limit on a racetrack and unleash the full potential of the most powerful naturally-aspirated engine ever built!
