A short time ago, Chevrolet issued a press release and sneak peak of the 2023 Corvette Z06 set to be unveiled at 12:00 pm next Tuesday, October 26th.
In that press release, they state:
Given that Chevrolet has confirmed that this latest iteration of the Z06 nameplate will come with a 5.5L flat-plane crank V8 engine, we are expecting it to have a higher rev limit that the standard Corvette's LT1 engine.In 8,600 minutes, professional basketball superstar, gold medalist and avid car enthusiast, Devin Booker, and record-breaking performance builder and driver, Emelia Hartford, will join General Motors’ passionate engineers and designers to learn what it takes to create the all-new 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06.
The fact that they make mention of "8,600 minutes", seems a little ironic, but we all know, that every now and then Chevy likes to toss a bone fragment out to the masses to keep them salivating.
Is Chevrolet giving us a clue that the 2023 Corvette Z06 will rev up to an 8,600 RPM redline in their latest press release?
