We're aching to get our hands on the new, at-least-625-horsepower, supercharged Chevrolet Corvette Z06, but until that wonderful day arrives, we're content just knowing what this beast sounds like. We're still waiting to hear it at full chat, but this video at least shows the brawny sound of the C7 Z06 at idle. This particular video is from after-hours at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, where the entire floor transforms in a construction site and cars get rearranged for upcoming debuts.

For those looking for a more extensive rundown on the new Z06, we have plenty of details in our original post on the car from earlier this week. That lengthy piece covers most everything you'll want to know about the Z06, ranging from the engine and its two transmissions to the C7's carbon-fiber and aluminum construction. For an even more in-depth peak at the new car, check out our own Mike Harley's interview with the chief engineer for the Corvette, Tadge Juechter.

Scroll down to hear just what the new Z06 will sound like.

      Holy hell it looks amazing in grey... and has the sound to go with the looks. All I wanted was one little mash on the go pedal to hear it rev.

      That exhaust sounds like a quiet race car at idle. I wish they could have blipped the throttle, just once.

      Grey is definitely the way to go. This thing is serious speed. Don't paint it some candy-ass color. Leave that to the Sparks, the Sonics and the other kid's toys. Gawd. I want one! BTW, latest price estimate is under $100K, which would be an absolute Ferrari-killing steal.
