Earlier spy photos of the next-generation C7 Corvette Z06 (Z07?) were hard to make out. They were distant and sort of blurry. Such isn’t the case today, as Autoblog published high resolution photos of a wrapped up test vehicle, sporting enormous drilled carbon ceramic rotors, and gargantuan rear tires, with a wider profile to accommodate said tires.
Still uncertain is the powertrain. We’ve heard 4.5L twin-turbo “LT5” V8, we’ve heard supercharged V8, and we’ve heard a powerful naturally aspirated model. We imagine the Corvette engineers have mulled over and tested all three engines to see which had the most optimum performance, but what’s going to be in the final product is still a mystery, and we won’t pretend to know at the moment. However, we do see some aerodynamic or cooling improvements with the 2015-2016 Z06, including more sizable front lower intake vents, and rear brake extractor ducts. We also hope there’s a rear diffuser and larger hood extractor, but it’s hard to tell.
