    Turbocharged? Flat-plane crank? Listen to this camouflaged Corvette C8 and decide for yourself.
    The Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray is great as-is, capable of hanging with the best sports cars in the segment. But the "base" mid-engine 'Vette is only the beginning. To really shake up the supercar establishment, Chevy needs to bring out the big guns. We're of course talking about the C8 Corvette Z06. We've reported plenty on the upcoming Z06 variant and the possibly related C8.R race car, breaking the news of the C8.R's dual-overhead-cam, flat-plane-crank V-8 more than a month before its reveal. Now, a recent video captures the C8 Corvette Z06's engine note—and it sounds absolutely insane.

    I loved the sound of the 350R...it has a menacing howl. There's one in the next neighborhood over that I can hear from my den when he rips down the boulevard.

    Um, that doesn't sound crazy but really muted and mundane.

    Will GM be allowed to use this engine in future NASCAR races? The rules of NASCAR changes so often, I have no idea. Many years ago all they had to do was sell about 500 engines, but that has long change, I guess.
