Right now we must be far away from the official release of 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, but the next model in the Corvette lineup has been caught in the camera.
What is believed to be the track-focused Z06 version of the first mid-engine Corvette was recorded by a bystander while being tested on a winding California mountain highway near Borrego Springs. Its Arizona license plate tells that it was on a road trip from GM’s desert proving ground in Yuma.
The car was wearing a padded black vinyl disguise, however, its unique exhaust note made it clear that it wasn’t a regular Stingray. It sounds more like the type of high-revving flat-plane crank overhead cam V8 discovered in exotics from Ferrari and McLaren than the Stingray’s conventional cross-plane crank pushrod V8.
Flat-plane crank motors are thought over for their lightweight and responsiveness but are prone to generate more vibration than a cross-plane crank design. The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 is the sole mainstream car that presently includes one, and the model is also targeted at consumers who are searching to drive their cars on a track.
Having noted that, there is absolutely no confirmed information about these musings, given Chevrolet is certainly silent about their future Corvette projects.
Chevrolet has made no confirmation when the Corvette Z06 will be officially introduced, but it may arrive in as a 2021 model later this year.
