Chevrolet published a video on its YouTube channel Monday showing off the exhaust sound for its upcoming 2023 Corvette Z06. The 24-second clip is the first official sound bite from Chevy of the car’s naturally aspirated DOHC flat-plane crank V-8 engine. You’re going to want to turn the volume up for this.
While the video doesn’t show any footage of the Z06 itself, it does give us plenty of meaty exhaust sounds of the car flying around Circuit of the Americas, a road course in Austin Texas, as well as video of the car on a tree-lined back road. Readers will be familiar with the sound; we first captured it on a spy video back in May 2021 while seeing the car test its launch control feature. The closest thing we can compare it to is the Ferrari 458 Italia—arguably one of the best-sounding V-8 road cars of all time. For the full story and video, check out this article from Road & Track.
