And he was the first person outside of GM to drive the new C8 Z06.

Aaron Link, Lead Development Engineer for the Corvette Z06, recently brought out the new 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 to Jay Leno's garage so he could take it out for a spin. What's pretty cool about Leno driving the C8 Z06 is the fact that he was actually the first person outside of GM to drive the American supercar. When behind the wheel, Leno didn't waste time when it came to opening it up on the road. And when the new Z06 is screaming up to its 8,600 rpm redline, you can really hear the difference that the flat-plane crank makes when compared to the standard C8 Corvette Stingray. Not only does the Z06's engine produce a record amount for a naturally-aspirated V8 engine, it also sounds like a dream.
