Chevrolet have just revealed the most powerful production naturally aspirated V8 in history in the new Corvette Z06. The new LT6 engine a bit smaller than the usual large V8’s found in Corvettes with 5.5L of capacity in total. It also does the job without any forced induction, forgoing the supercharged setup of the previous generation Z06. It is essentially a race bred engine that has been successfully used in the GTLM series since 2019 in the C8.R, and was developed alongside Pratt & Miller.
Boasting 670 hp at 8,400 rpm and 460 lb-ft of torque at 6,300 rpm, the LT6 loves to rev with a redline of 8,600 rpm. It uses a flat-plane crank with dry-sump oiling system and a lightweight, low-inertia rotating assembly to enable a free spinning, high strung nature. The centrally mounted exhaust features “reverse-megaphone” tips which reflect the exhaust noise back into the cockpit allowing the driver to appreciate the aural scream of the high revving V8.
