The silver car shown in the photo posted to Instagram features a revised front end and substantially larger side air intakes for its mid-mounted engine than the Stingray’s.

Technical details on the Z06 have not been revealed, but it is expected to be powered by a racing-style flat-plane-crank V8, which can be heard in a previous social media post.
Rumor has it that the engine will have a displacement of 5.5 liters, similar to the Corvette C8.R racing car’s, and over 600 horsepower.
The Corvette Z06 is expected to go on sale early next year, but the Corvette is currently sold out as production has been hampered by supply problems caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
