Prior to its official reveal, Chevrolet has released a teaser for its upcoming Corvette Z06. The video reveals footage of it accelerating along with a view of the car’s RPM gauge, revealing its 8,600-RPM redline. The tagline, “t-minus 8,600 minutes” also refers to the car’s redline.

The 30-second clip also contains the sound of the Corvette’s V8 engine. Unlike the standard C8 Corvette, the Z06 does not feature the typical American Muscle soundtrack, borrowing what sounds almost like a Ferrari’s exhaust note instead. The engine itself will be a 5.5-litre V8 engine, which could produce as much as 700 horsepower.

The car will be revealed tomorrow at 12 PM (ET). You can watch the live unveil by clicking here.

  • Just saw the introduction, 670 hp @ 8400 rpm with max rpm @ 8600 as stated and it is all naturally aspirated.

    They mentioned a 0-60 mph at 2.6 seconds.

  • Yeah but it sounds like a boring Ferrari thanks to the flat plane. And the HP to torque ratio is going to be way off now. Now it’s trying to be something it’s not. I’m disappointed.
