[VIDEO] Walk Through Corvette History Shows How the Z06 Performance Oriented Model has Evolved

Looking for a Z06 model primer? Check out this deep dive into 60 years of Z06 models with a focus on their engines.

The Z06 model first came to stardom with the 1963 Corvette and then picks up again in 2001 when the model was reintroduced as a C5 model. For the C6 model, Chevy increased displacement to 7 liters, and in the C7 era, they supercharged it. So it’s not that much of a shocker that engineers would push the envelope once again to create the motor for the all-new 2023 Corvette Z06, which features a DOHC LT6 flat-plane crank V8 engine that makes 670-hp and revs to 8600 RPM.

337 SPEED makes a very nice presentation with these facts and figures, and while this may be old news for you old heads in the crowd, there are definitely some interesting tidbits presented that any Corvette enthusiasts will appreciate.
