Yes, you can get a supercharged V8 in Corvette Z06, but it's sort of hard to look at the 460-horse 6.2-liter in the Stingray and the Grand Sport and want for more. It's the same engine as the Camaro SS above, but the Corvette's lighter chassis really makes the most of it. Furthermore, when all its European rivals are going turbocharged, the Corvette gains a distinct advantage in its lack of forced induction. Modern turbo engines might have great throttle response, but they can only be so good. The Corvette's LT1 is great.
