Hear The New Corvette C8 ZO6 Rev!

5 posts in this topic

 

A teaser video released on social media says it will be revealed this fall and offers a taste of its engine and exhaust notes, but doesn't show any of the vehicle.

The sound suggests that rumors it will be powered by a racing'/exotic-style V8 with a flat-plane crankshaft are true. This type of engine is used in the Corvette C8.R race car, some Ferrari's and the out of production Mustang Shelby GT350.

Speculation is that the car could use a street-legal version of the overhead cam 5.5-liter V8 featured in the C8.R with much more than the 500 hp the racing car is restricted to by the regulations of the series it competes in.

Wouldn't be surprised to see a pair of turbos on it.

Shoot, F150s have two turbos.  Wouldn't a "supercar" need about 6 turbos to remain "super" compared to a pickup?

Then what if they put 6 turbos on the F-150? See how quickly this could get out of hand?

I've seen what Ford engineers do.:doh:  I'm SURE they've already built one with 6 turbos, 3.5 intercoolers, and 1.5 steering wheels.   And all of that will have to be removed to change the 12 piece (class action lawsuit instigating) spark plugs. :doh:

(If you don't know about class action spark plugs, you haven't been around Ford trucks.)
