Is This The Steering Wheel From The 2021 Corvette Z06?

We exclusively revealed the interior of the 2020 Corvette six months before the model was unveiled, and now it appears we’re getting a glimpse inside the 2021 Corvette Z06.

Posted on Reddit and noticed by The Drive, this picture show a handful of Corvette steering wheels that are missing their airbags. However, that’s not the most interesting bit as the steering wheels have carbon fiber inserts, a red center line marker and a unique identification plaque. We can’t make out what it says, but it appears to start with the letter Z.

This naturally raises suspicion that this could be the steering wheel from the Corvette Z06. We can’t confirm that, but the picture comes hot on the heels of a sketch depicting the cabin of the high-performance model.

The steering wheel doesn’t have much in common with the sketch as the latter suggested the wheel would have slimmer spokes, a sportier design and a leather-wrapped lower section. However, it’s important to remember it was simply a sketch and there are some similarities including a red center line marker, a Z06 badge at the bottom and a contrasting upper section that could have been carbon fiber.

Chevrolet hasn’t said much about the Z06, but the automaker recently confirmed the C8.R will have a naturally-aspirated 5.5-liter flat-plane crank V8 engine that produces 500 hp (373 kW / 507 PS) and 480 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque. That’s barely more than the Corvette Stingray, but the engine was designed to comply with IMSA regulations.

Chevrolet hasn’t confirmed a version of the 5.5-liter V8 will find its way into the Z06, but we’ve heard that from our sources and the automaker admitted the “C8.R shares the highest percentage of parts between the production and race car than any previous generation.”
