Today, we will talk about the mechanical specifications of the 2022 Corvette Z06 that were leaked online, based on unofficial information published by Motor Trend website.
But before talking about this upcoming sports car, we would like to remind you that our colleague Suhaib Shashaa’a has already introduced the all-new eighth generation of the 2022 Chevrolet Corvette C8, when it was officially launched for the first time in the world, in a special event held last year In the car’s homeland, USA.
And before we talk about the latest leaked details related to the higher-performance Z06, which is more powerful than the new Corvette C8, here is a set of spy photos for this upcoming car, hidden under the camouflages that obscure its features:
The information we have about the mechanical specifications of the 2022 Corvette Z06 indicates that the upcoming sports car will be powered by a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V8 engine, that is borrowed from the race car, C8.R, and the rotation speed of this engine will reach 9 thousand revolutions per minute!
Although performance numbers of the upcoming high-performance version of the 2022 Corvette are still to be announced, expectations suggest that the power in the upcoming new Z06 car will reach 625 hp and the torque may reach 657 Newton meters. If this information is correct, this means that the new car will have less power than the previous supercharged model, which had 650 hp and 881 Nm of torque.
But if these leaked details about the specifications of the Corvette Z06 2022 are true, this car will be equipped with the most powerful production naturally aspirated V8, outperforming the V8 engine in Mustang Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R which generates 526 hp.
