This morning we woke up to the surprise that another Z06 model that is different than the one captured by spy photographers late last week is also testing at the Nurburgring. And thanks to a ‘Ring watcher, we have a video of the two Corvette Z06 prototypes on the track!

The new variant appears to be the “base” model Z06 which is defined by a large lip spoiler on the rear but is missing the aggressive aerodynamics kit with the wing spoiler and canards as we saw on the spy photos last week. To differentiate the two models, we’ll refer to the track-oriented version as the Z07 as Chevy has used that RPO for the Z06’s Performance Package previously.

The Base Z06 was spied wearing a set of different wheels than the Z07 model which we believe to be carbon fiber. We’ve seen these base Z06 wheels only one other time when we shared exclusively a photo of a Z06 prototype testing in October 2020 at Michigan’s Grattan Raceway.

The base model is still rocking the center-mounted quad exhaust and we think it’s safe to say that both Z06 models will feature that set-up. Some have said by putting the quad exhaust set up together, the sound from the Z06’s unique high-revving V8 will be more enhanced than if they were spread out to the corners.

As these two Z06 models make their way around the Nurburgring, we finally get to hear some of the exhaust notes from the 5.5L flat-plane crank V8 engine. The Z06’s V8 is naturally aspirated and expected to make somewhere around 600-650 hp.

  1. Not being a big fan of the big wing I’m happy to see a more street-able Z06. Looks and sounds amazing!

  2. They look and sound amazing, But how come that blue production Porsche was able to take a Vette on the curve?
