Chevrolet is all set to take the covers off the much-awaited Corvette Z06 on October 26. In a latest teaser, Chevy has teased that the Z06's engine will rev all the way till 8,600rpm. Gulp.

In the video we can see that the engine revs till 8,500rpm. However, a subsequent announcement from Chevrolet stating - a new video dropping "8,600 minutes" - could've revealed the Z06's redline.

While the teaser only shows silhouettes of the car alongwith the glorious noise of the flat-plane V8 engine, eagle-eyed viewers have noticed that the teaser also gives us a glimpse into the Z06 convertible. Lovely.

All will be revealed on October 26 when the Corvette Z06 will debut in all its glory. We can't wait!

  • Eh. I don’t care about revs. I care about torque. And with DOHC and a flat plane now instead of pushrods and a cross plane, the power to torque ratio is going to be way off and it’s going to sound like a Ferrari and not a muscle car. I’m disappointed.

  • I got to see a camouflagedC8 winter testing 2yrs ago near Pittsburg PA. The guy saw me freaking out next to him trying to get a cellphone pic, and took off like a rocket. It sounded like thunder, not like a Ferrari. Cool engine, but the Corvette has always been a brute, not really too sophisticated, it's American after all

  • Strange coincidence, between that video dropping and the update there’s 8600 minutes.
