Check out this video from Rick Corvette Conti where it shows the C8 Z06 testing pre production mule using launch control.
The engine has that high pitch Ferrari 458 sound and is very similar to the C8.R Racing Corvette that has a 5.5L flat plane crank engine. The new DOHC engine makes 500 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque in race trim but could easily exceed 600 hp when uncorked.
Recently we shared another video of more C8 Z06 and possibly C8 ZR1 Corvettes testing and some of them had a center exhaust.
Here’s another video from Road and Track and possibly the original source of the video.
