What does "tight vertical packaging" have to do with a flat-plane crank?

Is this person confusing "flat plane" with "boxer layout" or something?

Its sort of grasping at straws, logic is that since there is no space for a supercharger in the convertible engine bay, the z06 most likely is fitted with the FPC engine derived from the C8r rather than a supercharged lt4 or developing a new engine. Theory does make sense to me though, probably took millions of dollars to develop a bespoke FPC; why not use it?

If the Z06 has turbos, I want the base car (grand sport).

If the Z06 is a high revving NA flat plane crank V8, I want the Z06.

You think the Ford GT GTLM car has a whimpy sounding exhaust, or the street version ford gt?

I ask because when I was at Laguna Seca for IMSA, the Ford GT was louder than the damn C7R's lol, I couldn't believe it

Relatively speaking. It couldn't hold a candle to the one in the C8.R vid I posted.

This from R&T's Facebook page:
Asked about how the switch to a flat-plane-crank, overhead-cam engine would impact the C8.R's exhaust note, Corvette chief engineer Ed Piatek said, "I think we're still gonna have a signature Corvette sound, and you'll know it coming over the hill before you see it, it just might not be the same sound we had in the past. I think it sounds like nothing else I've ever heard."

Think P65. Flat plane with unequal length headers. It roars but its not the same...

From Car and Driver:
"There's maybe a yardstick's worth of unrestricted tailpipe hanging off the exhaust manifolds. We'll buy into Chevrolet's claim that new engine will have a distinct Corvette sound."

We are living in the best of times right now. Despite all the gloom and doom, a freaking mid-engine corvette race car.

LOL....did you see the older guy in the pinkish shirt walking by when he fired it up? He jumped about 2ft back.

More like the Ferrari 458 GTE race car


The C8.R has a slightly deeper tone vs. the 458 more high pitche and almost like the 488. Maybe because both the 488 and C8.R are turbo.


Out of all three, I like the 458 the best.

Some say it might be a V6 TT but it does not sound like the Ford GT. The C8.R has a much more aggressive sound compared to the more wimpy sounding Ford GT.
Wimpy? Go hear an FGT in person. Videos don't do justice to the base notes. Either way I'm glad the C8Z might be getting a racier FPC engine. Might just have to pick one up in convertible form.

I did. Still wimpy compared to the C8.R. It's not the absolute loudness that counts. If that's the case, then we all be buying tractors lols.
