2022 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Spy Photos
The upcoming 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has been spied testing on the public road recently. Moreover, it’s hard to see what is under the skin because the whole body of Z06 is wrapped in camo. We heard that this model would share plenty of elements with the C7 Stingray model. Generally, both models will ride on the same platform.
At first glance, we can see that the Z06 wears the new rear fenders that are also appear to be wider than on the Stingray. Fresh images suggest that this hypercar will use a new Active Aero and Carbon Fiber Wheels. These wheels will reportedly wear aggressive Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, in the monumental sizes of 275/30R20 up front and 345/25/R21 in the rear.
The Bow Tie brand recently released information that the Corvette’s interior could be sportier than any other car in the class. It should make sense and we are expecting that the new 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will bring plenty of refreshments. However, we also assume that it will use plenty of cues from other Chevy models. From available information, the cabin layout caters to the driver. The list of standard and optional features is also extensive.
Buyers can expect an entirely new 12.0-inch fully digital gauge cluster, a head-up display, heated and ventilated seats, and wireless charging. Besides, the multilayered dashboard will host an 8.0-inch touchscreen that supports the latest Chevy’s Infotainment 3 Plus system. We’re also confident that Z06 will include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. Likewise, buyers can also expect a standard 10-speaker system or an optional 14-speaker setup. Corvette has plenty of driver-assistance technology. The new model will come standardly with blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

Peak power is 600 horsepower of this mill. Compared to C7 generation’s supercharged V-8 that delivers 650 hp, Z06 provides 50 horses less. Chevy will definitively use a new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission that debuted in the Stingray.
