The Corvette Z06 is powered by a flat-plane crank LT6 V-8 engine, delivering an impressive 670 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful naturally aspirated production V-8 in history. Tested on a dyno, it generated 610 hp and 419 lb-ft of torque at the wheels.

The engine’s performance is noteworthy not just for its power but also for its distinctive sound and high-revving nature. It emits an exhilarating scream, especially as it approaches the 8,600-rpm redline. Senior Editor Kirk Bell highlighted the engine’s sound and fury, complementing its exotic style.

Despite not matching the last-gen Corvette ZR1’s top speed of 212 mph, the new Z06 impresses with a top speed of 195 mph. It boasts a 0-60 mph acceleration time of just 2.6 seconds and completes a quarter-mile in 10.
