The Z06 Corvettes of 2022. The C8 can be 800-hp. Twin Turbo Monster: Report
Less than a month after the main specification of the Cvet Corvette was revealed to the public, rumors of what the C8 would look like are already shining.
Automobile reports that the C8 Corvette Z06 is due as a model from 2022 and may include a version of Cadillac Nightwing's hot twin-turbo V8 V8 with 800 horsepower and perhaps over 700 lb-ft of torque. This engine will not be named Nightwing, but will probably trade it for the LT7.
According to Automobile, the new Z06 may notice some major changes from the base Corvette, as far as transmission is concerned. Although this is far from being confirmed, the 10-speed dual-clutch gearbox can replace the 7-speed currently available. It may be less likely the third pedal, which is no longer an option on the standard car, but Automobile says manual transmission could be an option when the Z06 hits the market.
This upgraded powertrain can be combined with wider fender fittings for the tire needed to reduce all this power, in addition to aerodynamic and suspension enhancements such as reworked magnetic dampers and massive wingfire combination made by Automobile to keep the car planted on the track.
