C8 2022 Corvette Z06 Will Have 600-Plus HP

Return to the stripped-down, track-ready attitude of the C6 Z06, the mid-engine C8 Z06 will use a naturally aspirated 5.5 liter flat-plane-crank V-8.

The upcoming Z06 will be the first performance variant of the new mid-engine C8 Corvette.
• It will use a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V-8 engine with a flat-plane-crankshaft design.
• Expect it to arrive sometime in 2021 with a starting price of around $85,000.

The upcoming C8 Corvette Z06 will be the first of several upcoming ultra-high-performance variants of the C8 Corvette.
Expect it to go on sale in mid 2021 as a 2022 model, starting at about $85,000.
It's a return to the stripped-down-for-action, high-revving, track-worthy Corvette embodied by the 505-hp 7.0-liter V-8-powered C6 Z06 of 2006 through 2013.

The Z06's new V-8 packs a power curve shaped like a bodybuilder's bicep.
The switch to a mid-engine configuration maximizes traction, allowing Chevy to better utilize its mega-horsepower engines for battling everything on the exotic-car spectrum.
A muscled-up version of the base C8's architecture will be in play, with wider rubber, stronger brakes, a re-calibrated suspension tune, and upgraded power-train cooling.
Flared fenders cover the mechanical bits, and new for the Corvette active aerodynamics to glue it to the track.
