While the photo of a yellow C7 Corvette circulating the web posing as the 2015 Z06 has turned out to be nothing short of a Photoshop job, we’re pretty sure this isn’t. We’re pretty sure this could very well be the Gen V Small Block-based supercharged V8 that will be cradled within what’s expected to be the most track-capable Corvette ever conceived.
The photo of the engine comes from the Facebook page of GM High Tech Performance Magazine. Following with the “LT” family name, the engine cover of this mill is labeled as LT4, which was the name of a high-performance Small Block back in the 1990’s. While displacement and other specs are unknown at this time, we can only assume that power figures are certainly going to be impressive, but we will miss the naturally aspirated nature of previous Z06 Corvettes.
