Chevy teases 2023 Corvette Z06’s 8,600 RPM red line with new video

Chevy answered 1 of the most pressing 2023 Corvette Z06 queries Wednesday with a new teaser movie produced exactly 8,600 minutes in advance of the new superior-general performance coupe’s digital unveiling. When there is certainly constrained footage of the car’s exterior, we do get to hear it revving previous an indicated 8,500 RPM at somewhere around 100 MPH as the motor vehicle tops out third gear. 

8,600 minutes till the globally attribute-film premiere revealing the All-New 2023 #Corvette #Z06. Tune in 12pm ET on 10.26.21.

The 5.5-liter, flat-airplane crank V8 expected to electrical power the superior-general performance street motor vehicle has been the issue of unlimited speculation early rumors recommended a crimson line of 9,000 RPM, which Chevy appears to have quashed these days. Essentially, it is really linked to the engine applied in the C8.R race auto, and even though 8,600 RPM may perhaps seem to be disappointing in that context, the avenue car’s motor will continue to be significantly more strong than that used by the C8.R, which appears to strike fuel lower around 7,400 RPM many thanks to series-imposed energy constraints.

We also count on the Z06 to occur with 345-area-width rubber in back again and 275s up entrance. Some spy photographs have suggested Michelin’s Pilot Sport Cup 2 will at the very least be offered, if not conventional devices, though we do expect the Z06 to be made available in several phases of suspension and aerodynamic preparing as has been the situation in the previous. The 2023 Corvette Z06 will debut on Oct. 26.
