The 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 is anticipated to advance the legendary moniker into the exotic car market now dominated by Lamborghini and Ferrari. 

Due to the high-performance engine's new location behind the driver, the Z06 appears dramatically different from any other Chevy. 

In addition to being noticeably wider than the standard Corvette Stingray, it has a distinctive rear wing and larger air intakes. 

The new Z06's naturally turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 will sound unlike any previous Corvette before thanks to a flat-plane crankshaft. 

The new car will include the greatest features and technology from the Stingray, but its handling and performance will be improved.

The new Z06 is more potent and aggressive than any Z06 before it and is only produced on the basic Corvette Stingray vehicle. 

Additionally, this track-focused, ultra-high-performance Chevrolet is propelled by a brand-new, distinctive engine that may serve as its defining feature.

The Exotic Flat-Plane Crank LT6 Engine

The flat-plane crank, which is the car's finest feature, is uncommon in the automobile industry;

it only seldom appears in a few expensive European exotics, race engines, or performance-oriented vehicles.

Unlike typical cross-plane cranks, which require large counterweights to bring down this revolving assembly, flat-plane lines have their crankpins on a single plane.

The configuration is fundamentally lower-inertia, which leads to an engine that revs higher and for longer, especially without forced induction. 

This suggests that the new car's LT6 didn't have a traditional American V8 sound or throaty growl.
