When the 2021 Corvette C8 was released, the most fans were aghast. Every piece of This Chevrolet is an engineering master work. That was maybe the car that every one expected from Chevy. So now we are waiting for their new art, the 2022 C8. By the crumbled news, spy shots and other sources, there is a whole view of 2022 Z06. This car would be unveiled in 2021. Of course, some upgrades in suspension and chassis are expected. Till then here are the information we have.
It seems that, 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is equipped with a new engine. This one is a 5.5-litre V8 which produced between 600-800 hp power at the torque of 700 lb-ft. as Car and Driver reports this one just like as 2021 C8 has an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. And what is more, is that this engine is probably naturally aspirated.
This engine has a flat-plane crank and dual overhead cam design. There are also some videos of 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, doing some tests around the Detroit. This engine is a bit quieter than the C8.R. and the exhaust would remind you Ferrari 458 which uses a flat-plane crank engine. What comes some how struggling is the vibration of powerplant. We should see how the automaker has come to a solution.

Beside all of these features, fiber carbon shouldn’t be forgotten. This material is used on the demand of customers will. This car has its aero system which appears to incorporate mechanically actuated aerodynamic flaps. Although many sources have insisted that the C8 will have a functional rear wing, others have disputed this claim.
General Motors has patents of innovation inventions like “Aerodynamic actuator control systems and methods” and “Vehicle, system, and method for controlling active aerodynamic elements”. GM published them in 2018. And GM has also the “Active Aerodynamic Body Panel for an Automotive Vehicle”. These mechanisms are behind the dynamic downforce and aerodynamic control modules. You can find all of them in Z06.
This perfect car is valuable in compare with another corvette it costs more. the price is about $80,000. but when you compare it with the same power car it is also really cheap.
