Thanks to Jesse for lending us his Z06:
Meet the brand-new Corvette Z06!
It's the hardcore, track-focused variation of the routine C8 Corvette, and Mat's about to learn just what's changed over the basic car.
Beginning with the style, there's more than just some brand-new badging to help the Z06 stand out from the routine C8. In advance there are some bigger air intakes (to assist cool the bigger radiators) together with a bigger, extending splitter. Along the side the wheel arches protrude even more to help house the bigger & larger wheels, while there's likewise extended side skirts and bigger air intakes. Then around the back, the twin tailpipes from the C8 have actually been combined to make quad tailpipes in the centre of the vehicle, and a gurney flap has also been contributed to the rear spoiler.
It's a different story on the inside, though, with just a handful of modifications to be found. The steering wheel now features Z06 badging, and it's possible to upgrade it to consist of some carbon fibre. Some new figure-hugging sports seats have actually been included, and there are Z06 kick plates on either side … However that's your lot! Otherwise, it's the very same as the regular C8.
However naturally, the most significant modification includes the engine. Regardless of the Z06 having a smaller-sized engine than the C8 (with the 6.2-litre NA V8 switching for a 5.5-litre NA V8), it has a lot more power. You see, this is no routine V8 … Chevrolet have taken a Ferrari 458 engine, reverse-engineered it, and given it 100hp more. As a result, the Z06 pumps out an eye-watering 670hp, making it the most powerful naturally-aspirated V8 on the planet!!
The Z06 starts from around $100,000, which is around $40,000 more than the regular C8 Corvette. So is it worth it? You'll need to stick to Mat and see for yourself!
