Even though manufacturing of the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 won't start until this summer, several of them are already on the road.
One Z06 was seen on public roads in a brief YouTube video with what looks to be a factory licence plate,
and the driver wasn't afraid to show off the car's powerful exhaust noise.
The 5.5-liter DOHC V8 engine of the Z06 has a flat-plane crankshaft.
Even with the wind noise, this video catches a mean-sounding sports vehicle that Chevrolet engineers spent two years fine-tuning to be unlike any other Corvette ever created.
The engine generates 460 pound-feet of torque and 670 horsepower (500 kilowatts) (623 Newton-meters).
With all that force, the Z06 accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.6 seconds.
The engine is paired with a dual-clutch transmission with seven speeds.
Unfortunately, not everyone will get to experience the full-throated exhaust noise of the Z06.
In order to comply with emissions standards in Europe and Australia, Chevrolet had to redesign the exhaust system.
Chevrolet was unable to maintain the Z06's floating quad center-exist exhaust system because to the additional pipework.
Similar to the Stingray, Z06s sold in those regions will have corner-exit exhaust pipes, and their horsepower may also be somewhat reduced.
