Facebook Fridays: Reveling in the Heart and Soul of the Corvette Z06
Ah, there it is, in its simplest form, baring it all, for all the world to see.
Yup, there’s something about the heart and soul of a car. And let’s be clear, by heart and soul, we’re not talking about a vehicle’s exterior design. Nope, this post is all about that thing that really gives an automobile life, like the LT4 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that powers the much-beloved C7 Corvette Z06, as showcased in this photo we pulled from the official Corvette Facebook page.
Sure, without everything else needed to put the Z06 in motion — like either the 7-speed manual or eight-speed auto transmission, the lightweight body, and those Michelin Pilot Sport Cup ZP tires — the Z06 is really nothing more than a powerful, pulsating piece of stationary machinery. But when it’s all packaged with that LT4 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, the car comes to life like no other vehicle on the road.
That, my friends, is what defines the heart and soul of a car.
