The new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 already has an official date for its world presentation, specifically, on October 26. So that the wait does not become so long, the Detroit-based brand has decided to give us a preview through its Instagram profile in which they have shown us the first image uncovered and without the camouflage of the one that is going to become the most performing variant of its iconic model until the launch of the ZR1.
As we can see in this first image, the new Corvette Z06 will be more aggressive and muscular than the conventional version of the current generation C8. Part of the blame lies with its new sportier front bumper with larger air intakes and with a sharp front splitter and how could it be otherwise, in carbon fiber.
From its side, we also observe new changes in its aesthetic section. The new Z06 has more voluminous wheel arches, more protruding air intakes, and a subtle skirt that goes very well with the aforementioned front splitter. Also, in this first image, we are struck by its new exclusive design wheels that fit the new Z06.
Unfortunately, we can not tell you anything about how the new model will be behind, although we can appreciate a discreet rear spoiler that gives it just the right touch of sportiness without resorting to great fanfare, unlike the one we could see on his mule. of tests that you can see in the photographs.
Inside, we can differentiate a new dashboard somewhat more angular than that of the conventional model. Both to know its rear and its interior, we will have to wait to see if Chevrolet shows us any more advance or if not its presentation next month.
Chevrolet Corvette Z06 A heart with character
Under its centrally arranged engine cover, something that was quite criticized by most purists of the model, we will find an atmospheric 5.5-liter V8 block that will be around 600 HP of power. This engine will be associated with a Tremec automatic transmission that will transmit to the rear axle all the power of the American eight-cylinder in “V” that sounds like a thousand wonders, as we showed you last August.
At the moment, we do not have more information about the price or its arrival on the streets, so as well as to know more details, we will have to wait for its official presentation.
