Car and Driver released a brief clip featuring the 2015 Corvette Z06 clear it’s throat a little bit.
The 6.2 liter LT4 V8 engine is supercharged in the Corvette Z06, and that’s evident from the gauge cluster; right and bottom, tucked neatly under the fuel gauge, the supercharger’s boost output is indicated in a quarter-circle sweep from -100 to 100 kPa.
We’d have appreciated it if they’d used either of the more widely-adopted units: bars, or psi.
The speedometer on the left of the cluster is also unique to the Z06, and (comically) sweeps all the way up to 360 mph. We reckon that may be a tad optimistic. As for the sound, well, the folks over at Car and Driver didn’t find it prudent or necessary to rev above about 2000 RPM. This was probably a good call, as revving an unloaded engine can be trying on internal components. We get a good whiff of the deep, throaty, wide-bore rasp already found in the base Stingray, but not much else can be heard at this low of an engine speed.
We’ll just have to wait for some other venue to hear the Eaton supercharger’s harmonizing whine.
