  • C8.R Exhaust Music

    This is a two week old clip, though for those who did not earlier get a chance to hear it, we have it here now — thanks to CorvetteBlogger.

    We are going to have to get used to this change from the C7.R’s exhaust we loved, which we and so many others said sounded like “ground pounding music,” for it was a very visceral, nicely-overwhelming sound.

    The C8.R’s exhaust sure is very different. Personally, I like it. Of course, it is our Corvette Racing’s future.

    After listening to both the C8.R and C7.R clips, I say that they both sound great.

    The C8.R seems to have some higher frequency content in it's exhaust note.

      Where's our resident MECF engieeer team when we need them? They should be able to run these thru an analytics tool to show high and low decibels to compare! I know I know, they are busy fine tuning the ME beast and not worried about comparing exhaust note tabulature sheet music.

        All the decent videos of the C8 test cars on the street appear to feature a NA V8 and DCT trans.

        My impression of the C8R-R sound is of a smaller displacement turbo V8.

          Could it be that the C8.R is running a 4.2L motor, DOHC, 32 VV, twin turbo that was listed in the 2016 IHS Markit Engine Forecast?

          Agree fully that the Ford GT’s exhaust sound is not personally pleasing (understatement).

            Sounds like a high strung turbo race engine to me.
            Save the wave.

              I like the sound, especially at the end were it has a quick blip of over rev. A good friend of mine keeps saying it’s a V6 and I bet it’s a higher rev V8 slightly muted with turbochargers. I tell people GM has no need to go to a V6 like Ford with the GT. Ford is using the GT as their Echo Boost marketing platform to convince & validate to their TRUCK/SUV owners the new V6 is very capable engine as Ford racing put it into their Halo hyper car.
