    • 2022 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z06 renderings and speculation - 800 horsepower 4.2 liter twin turbo flat-plane crank V8?

      Everyone is speculating and rather wildly at that regarding the C8 generation of the Corvette Z06. The truth is, only GM knows what is going on so take everything you read as a rumor. Especially regarding the powerplant.


      Cadillac specifically stated they will not share their 4.2 liter twin turbo Blackwing V8. Maybe the boss over at GM said they have to? The recent speculation is that a 4.2 liter twin turbo V8 derivative will go into the Z06.

      Some are even reporting it will be a high revving V8 with a flat-plane crank. That rumor is an old one.

      So, a 2022 C8 Z06 with 800 horsepower from a 4.2 liter flat-plane crank twin turbocharged V8 sent to a new beefed up 10-speed DCT transmission. That sounds like a dream but so did a mid-engine Corvette starting at under $60k. Let's hope they do it.
