Headphones in, volume up. The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is loaded with the same engine as the CTS-V: a 6.2-litre supercharged V8 tuned up for an even stephen 650-hp and 650 lb-ft. These are quantified numbers that are incredibly difficult to articulate into words. It’s like trying to describe to someone how it feels skydiving - you just have to do it.
And what a sound. You barely hear the supercharger whine, as it’s drowned out by a torrential downpour of muscle car growls. This is a proper V8 soundtrack through and through, and the barks from downshift rev matching sounds even more brutal.
