Now that Chevrolet has officially unveiled the new-generation Corvette, everyone is very curious on what the new Z06 will bring to the lineup. Rumors suggested that the Z06 will retain the same 7.0-liter engine, but the output is expected to be taken up to a monstrous 600 horsepower. However, it is now rumored that the final output for the Z06 won’t be determined until the new-generation ZR1 is finished.
The ZR1 version will feature a supercharged version of the new LT1 engine used in the Stingray, with output expected to be somewhere in the 700-horsepower area. If the ZR1 delivers 675 horsepower, then the Z06 will deliver 550 horsepower, and if the ZR1 delivers 700 horsepower, then the Z06 will deliver 600 horsepower.
Rumor has it that the first version to arrive will be the Z06, which will be in about one year or so, then it will be followed by the ZR1. Stay tuned for more details!
