Here’s a question: what is the best sounding Corvette C6 race car? Is it the GT1, the GTE, the GT3 or the GT4? Well let’s find out.
Video: Which Corvette racer sounds best?
If you’ve heard the new C8.R Corvette racer you’ll know it sounds, well, a little flat. It’s ridiculously fast, and being mid-engined it can do things on track the old front-engined ‘Vettes couldn’t. But with a 5.5-litre flat-plane crank V8 what it doesn’t do is blow our ears to kingdom come like the old C6.
The C6 came in a variety of race flavours. First there was the GT1, with its ginormous 7.0-litre V8. Then there was the GTE with a 5.5-litre V8. The GT3, meanwhile, had a 6.2-litre V8 like the C6 road car, and the GT4 had an even more closely road related 6.2-litre engine. Which sounds best? Let us know!
