C8 Z06 spied looking wide and aggressiveFebruary 14, 2020
As Chevy does more and more testing of the next iteration of the C8 Corvette, we are starting to see more and more spy shots/videos of them.
The newest, and best-detailed one so far, shows what people are thinking is the new Z06. The video was shot on the I5 freeway in Valencia, California.
The 30-second clip provides a look at the rear end of the cars. Of course, these are still heavily camouflaged and there’s not much to be seen from the actual body shape and details.
What’s more important, however, it seems that Chevrolet is benchmarking the new Z06 with what appears to be a Ferrari 458 Italia. It’s good to know that the engineers will make sure the hardcore ‘Vette will be up to date with its European supercar competition.
According to preliminary information, the new Z06 will use a modified version of the 5.5-liter naturally aspirated V8 with a flat-plane crank from the C8.R race car. If this turns out to be true, we expect the power to be above the race car’s respectable 500 horsepower (373 kilowatts) and 480 pound-feet (651 Newton-meters) because it wouldn’t have to adhere to a series’ regulations.
The Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club in Pahrump, Nevada, will continue their long-standing partnership with Chevrolet as the “Official High-Performance Driving School” for the 8th generation Corvette Stingray.
Set to begin this April, the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School will be offering enhanced two-day programs featuring the all-new mid-engine Corvette. The iconic sports car marque’s all-new 495 horsepower mid-engine masterpiece has already been named 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year and 2020 North American Car of the Year.
The new two-day program is designed to provide drivers of all experience levels with the skills and techniques to truly challenge yourself and the all-new mid-engine Corvette Stingray.
