The New C8 Corvette Z06 Will Rev to 8600 RPM

To me, the redline is everything. Few on-paper stats can tell you what a car will feel like. But if a car can rev past 8000, you can be darn sure that it's going to feel wild at the top end of that tachometer. According to a new teaser, it looks like that'll be true for the C8 Corvette Z06.

No One Wants To Buy This Stolen Corvette Stingray

There are always good deals to be found on new and used Chevrolet Corvette models and this is no exception. Last July, we reported about the case of this stolen Torch Red 2015 Corvette Stingray Coupe with just 31,320 miles on its odometer. It was being put up for auction by the State of New York for the second time after it failed to sell the month prior, presumably because of its shady history. It was stolen a few years ago from an out-of-state dealership. Whoever it was sold to (or the thief themselves) tried and failed to register it with the NY Department of Motor Vehicles.

The sixth-generation Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, now without the hyphen between the R and the 1, bowed for the 2009 model year after a long development cycle under the internal code name “Blue Devil.” The ZR1’s 6.2-liter LS9 had the same displacement as the base Corvette’s LS3, but was of a new design which incorporated a 10.5 quart dry-sump lubrication system, a Roots-type four-lobe rotor design supercharger, 9.1:1 compression, and 638 thundering horsepower and 604 pound-feet of torque, making it the most powerful engine GM had ever produced. The LS9 was backed by a beefed-up six-speed manual transmission with a twin-disc clutch. No automatic transmission was offered.
