When observing the spy photos on Hot Rod Magazine’s website of the 2016 C7 Corvette Z06 (which could be called Z07), the first thing that comes to mind is that this thing is wide, and those swollen tires fit underneath the cloaked sheet metal like a body builder in spandex. Otherwise, the photos are too grainy to get a good look at what’s sure to be an impressive set of brakes, and the full covering could be masking any extra aerodynamic enchantments in store for the super Stingray.
Under the hood is anyone’s guess. We’ve heard multiple conflicting reports, even from our own sources, as to what will be powering the Corvette Z06/Z07. It could be a successor to the LS7, it could be a twin-turbo V8, or it could be supercharged. What we do expect, however, is that the engine will continue with the LTx alpha-numeration, probably LT5, and will be pushing around 600 horsepower.
