I really hope the Z06 looks like this. I'm curious what engine the Z06 is actually going to have.

It'll be interesting to see th FGT and C8 Z06 go at it.

It would be pretty funny if the “people’s” Z06 shit all over the “unobtainable” Ford GT, again...
It's a good possibility it will happen. Idk if it'll be faster around the track than the GT, but in a stright line I think the Z06 will walk away from the GT.

Hats off to Chevrolet. They are absolutely taking people to the woodshed with this C8 business. Ford could learn a thing or two.

The old Chevy fan from high school thats still lurking in me is VERY impressed.

Sadly we'll never know as Ford doesnt GAF about instrument testing and all the owners are 60+ keeping them locked in climate controlled bubbles

Well I’m now convinced. That one looks like a super car. Time to beat those European supers
Yep! It definitely screams super car to the eye. Overall looks very different from any prior Vette. It could easily pass for a European exotic. I absolutely love this one!

The only person I ever see that actually races there GT is Brooks from Drag times. If anyone will race a C8 Z06 it'll be him.

Of what`s been posted Chevrolet changed the firing order to mimic the sound of the Ferrari and British supercars. Sounds like they achieved that !!!!

The base C8 looks great, except the rear end in my opinion. This car though...****ing nailed it! Give me a base C8 with that wing and rear diffuser.

Not sure what’s in there, but the car is hot and that sound is definitely no pushrod motor. Wow.
