The engine screams. This new spy video doesn't provide a good look at the upcoming Chevrolet Corvette Z06 , but it offers a fantastic opportunity to hear the V8 engine. Judging by the sound, the engineers are finetuning the performance machine's launch control system. The Corvette Z06's driver stops on the test track several times to bounce off the rev limiter and launch down the road.
