This Is the C8 Corvette Z06 Undisguised

After months of spy shots and audio clips, General Motors has finally shared a direct, official photo of the upcoming C8 Corvette Z06 without any sort of camouflage. The Instagram post comes less than a month before the car's official scheduled debut on October 26th.

The silver C8 in the photo appears to have a more conservative rear spoiler than the cars seen at the Nurburgring earlier this Summer, but the Z06 is still far more aggressive than its more common mid-engined siblings. A massive new contrasting bodywork strike through the side vent creates a previously-unseen dramatic indication that this car is a Z06, a new design feature for the C8 line. The car also features a unique front splitter, although like the rear spoiler the one shown on this car pales in comparison to what was seen on the testing cars seemingly equipped with the Z07 aerodynamic option.

The C8 Z06 is set to debut on October 26th. Nurburgring testing results have not been shared, but previous test cars were spotted being benchmarked against the likes of Ferrari's 458 and Porsche's 911 GT2 RS. This is a serious performance car.

Earlier reports indicate that it will feature a 5.5-liter V-8 based on the engine currently used in the C8.R racing car. That motor has a flat-plane crankshaft and dual overhead camshafts, so expect it to be a naturally-aspirated, track-focused monster that produces one of the most unique sounds on the road.
