Hype for the upcoming 2022 Chevy Corvette Z06 is building, with details slowly trickling out ahead of the go-faster Vette’s debut. Now, the new Corvette Z06’s logo has leaked online.
The leaked Corvette Z06 badge shows a dark gray Z06 script against a silver background. The logo includes familiar styling, with squared lettering, rounded edges, and a right-leaning italic slant. The “Z” in the logo looks as though it is formed from two mirrored arrows, one higher and one lower.
By comparison, the Z06 logo used with the previous C7-generation vehicle incorporated a solid “Z,” while the “0” is formed from two mirrored L-shapes.
Just last week, GM Authority covered a Corvette C8 Z06 prototype that was spied testing alongside a Ferrari 458 Italia, reiterating the new Z06’s impressive performance capabilities. As we’ve reported previously, the C8 Z06 will draw motivation from the naturally aspirated, 32-valve 5.5L V8 LT6, which features a flat-plane crank and exotic-sounding exhaust note, returning the Z06 nameplate to its roots as an atmospheric, track-ready performance machine.
Loosely based on the same architecture as the twin-turbo 4.2L V8 LTA Blackwing from the Cadillac CT6-V, the LT6 is expected to produce roughly 615 horsepower and 490 pound-feet of torque, with redline set at a screaming 9,000 rpm. Power will be sent to the rear axle through an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The sprint to 60 mph is expected to take less than 3 seconds.
The base price is expected to start around $85,000, with a debut in July.
