Less than a month after the base-spec C8 Corvette was shown to the public, rumors of what the hotter C8s wants to be like are already percolating.

Automobile is reporting that the C8 Corvette Z06 is due for a 2022 model and could feature a version of Cadillac's Nightwing hot V twin-turbo V8 making upwards of 800 horse power and perhaps more than 700 lb-ft of torque. That engine will not wear the Nightwing name though, probably it's for LT7.

According to Automobile, the new Z06 While this is far from confirmed, both a 10-speed dual clutch gearbox could replace the 7-speed currently on offer.

This upgraded powertrain could be matched to fender to take the fat The C7 Corvette Z06

The previous Z06, based off the C7 Corvette, making a beast in its own right, with a supercharged LT4 V8 making 650 HP making it capable of a 2.95 second 0-60 time. This performance was not without cost though. Numerous owners found themselves limping home after driving their cars hard for as many as 15 minutes because of cooling issues. It is believed to be the cause of last but not least of all the lawsuits that have been brought against GM.

While the details remain the same, the Z06 as soon as 2021 because it took only one model year for the Z06 C7 came out for 2014. I hope we get it sooner rather than later because GM's engineers can pull out their new mid-engined machine. I'm sure we will not be disappointed.

If you are, that's alright. ZR1 packing upwards of 1000 hp coming for you too.
