2023 Corvette Z06 and Z07 Package Exhaust Sound Compilation

In this video by DPC Cars on YouTube they have compiled the exhaust sounds of the new Mid Engine Chevrolet 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 with the flat plane crank ripping around the Nürburgring.

You can also see the different variants from the C8 Z06 with the Z07 Carbon Fiber aero package to the low wing non Z07 aero package. With the recent release of the C8 Z06 pricing starting at $106,000 more and more people are researching videos and content like this to see what the Nürburgring times are and if it’s going to come in under 7 seconds for this starting price.

Also, with having to add another $20,000 in options for the Z07 package, Carbon Fiber Aero, and Carbon Fiber Wheels many are wondering if the extra cost of those options to have the fastest time the new C8 Z06 puts around a track is worth it or save money by going with an aftermarket carbon fiber aero package set up.

Per their video description about the New C8 Corvette Z06

The 2023 Corvette Z06 debuts an all-new 5.5L DOHC V-8 engine that marks a return to natural aspiration for the track-capable performance model.

Engine responsiveness and trackability, two characteristics of naturally aspirated motors, were the top priorities for providing an engaging driving experience for purists.

As a result, it was determined that a clean sheet naturally aspirated powerplant was needed, with the goal of exceeding the power of any naturally aspirated production V-8 engine ever made. A lightweight, flat-plane crank design enables the engine to rev to the high rpms needed to create significant power.

More than horsepower, the new LT6 is designed to complement all aspects of the Z06’s track-focused performance experience. From its 8,600-rpm redline and full racing-style dry-sump oiling system to meticulously tuned induction and exhaust systems, this engine exudes an entirely new and emotional character.

The key to the LT6’s performance capability is a lightweight, low-inertia rotating assembly rooted in an all-new flat-plane crankshaft that, along with a comparatively short stroke (the distance each piston/connecting rod assembly travels with each rotation of the crankshaft), allows the engine to rev to its maximum range.

A version of the LT6 has powered the C8.R race cars since 2019, and the rigors of endurance road racing helped engineers refine the engine’s performance and durability.

Z07 Performance Package additional features include:

Carbon fiber aero package with larger front splitter, front-corner dive planes, a rear wing and underbody strakes that enhance downforce

Unique FE7 suspension with specific Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 calibrations Michelin Sport Cup 2 R ZP tires developed specifically for the Z06 Available carbon fiber wheels that deliver a 41-pound (18.6 kg) reduction in unsprung mass Brembo® carbon ceramic brake system featuring larger, 15.7-inch-diameter (398 mm) front rotors and 15.4-inch-diameter (391 mm) rear rotors

When equipped with the Z07 performance package in the track prepared configuration on a 300-foot diameter circle, the car is capable of 1.22 g of road-hugging grip. The Z06 is based on the same robust architecture as the Stingray — a rigid structure that enabled engineers to fine-tune the car’s chassis and suspension components with exceptional precision.

The C8 Z06 is so stiff that the track-capable Z06 is offered in a hardtop convertible model, and there is no variance in the suspension calibrations between it and the coupe.
