2020 C8 Corvette Reveal: Chevy's mid-engine supercar hunter

Publicat pe 19 iul. 2019
We got a first look at the new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, aka the C8. The 'Vette has always had supercar aspirations. Now, it's a legitimate threat.

Moving the engine rearward positions the driver much closer to the nose and shifts the car's center of gravity directly next to the driver's hip.
The new LT2 engine is a 6.2-liter V8 making 495 hp and 470 lb-ft. The bigger change is what it's connected to -- an eight-speed, dual-clutch transmission from Tremec. When it comes to performance there's no doubt DCTs are quicker. How quick? The new C8 will have a 0-60 mph time of less than 3 seconds.
We suspect some traditional Corvette buyers will struggle to get their heads around this new mid-engined layout, but anyone with an eye towards performance should be properly salivating right now.

  • We've finally seen the C8 Corvette in person but what do you think of the looks now it's mid-engined?

    • @cosio m that's one hell of a nut. Becareful, it could rip the other right off the stump.

    • Looks like something from Maranello.

    • It’s not a Corvette (it’s a secret Ford GT)

    • Bad ass..

    • If it had circular tail lights it would look like a new Ferrari....they did an amazing job

  • Dealer mark ups are insane and should be illegal. Could Chevy do anything about this? For sure the amount of cars sold will be significantly less because of the mark ups . People aren't stupid, and would rather buy a C8 from another city if they have to from a more honest dealership if they have to. I've heard some mark ups as high as $50,000.00 😐🙄 I understand you wanting to make maximum profit on these cars , but you have to be a real low life blood sucker to mark up prices this high and still look customers in the face with zero shame . Only a dummy would just give their money away like that on a car that's going to be mass produced, and will depreciate considerably.

  • *Slaps roof* Yells at chevy employee Hey boy! BOY!!! Where's my turbo. . . I have some Ferrari's and Pagani's to slay and I shall require all Zeeee boost to give them a nice thrashing These things alongside all the ls mods are gonna be American goddamn Godzillas Headers, cam, big ass turbo, straight piped, patriotism intensifies

  • It looks fantastic... what an upgrade!

  • Pontiac Fiero with a body kit

  • Absolutely gorgeous!!!!!!

  • Shit !!!! .....the rear looks 100% cleaner without that gaudy wing. Without it....seems like you can appreciate what the designers were going for without that stupid add on. Looks like a totally different car. This cars styling is SLOWLY creeping on me. I try not to get too exited about new cars because what look new and exiting....USUALLY looks dated after a couple of years....so lets see.....

  • Sweet honey barbecue

  • Lets hope it can smoke a demon or the civic nsx🤣🤣🤣

  • Looks like a better camaro

  • Man,with so many people on different channels in the comment section proclaiming to buy one soon there will be plenty of these on the streets.I might probably get a used one 5 years from now for $20k thereabouts? 🤔

  • tesla next generation roadster please

  • Too much of a snub nose. Chevy's insistance on having golf club storage in the rear has resulted in the cabin being pitched a little too far forward. Otherwise, not too bad. The side vents need to be dialed back, and the rear of the car needs some design streamlining.

  • It took 50 yrs to make a decent Car! Chevy Slakers!

  • If it's not called the c8 zora i'll burn the entier chevy headquarters and back slap the ceo across the face

  • Lowkey live🔥

  • Idk I see a lot of the F35 and the Resemblance is minimal lol. I still like it tho.

  • Its missing the long nose, the main look of a corvette

  • I think it's an excellent engineering achievement at an astonishing entry price accomplished at the cost of lousy design and a soul.

  • Looks like a American mclaren

  • Ferrari?

  • #50 on trending

  • Car guys!! Stop over to my channel subscribe and win $150 Complete Car Detailing Kit!! FREE!!! All This Week!!!

  • That color.... HOLY SMOKES!!! That's the first one I've seen without the performance package also. I like it.

  • Looks like a copy of a Mclaren tho

  • I want that ❤

  • It's more desirable than a new NSX because NA V8 for 60k

  • I 👀 this model 4 year's ago on future sport car's nothing important 2 me at all slow ass plastic death machine

  • Spoiler it’s $60k and you can still feel every bump on the road just like all the corvettes before it. 😋

  • I’m 6’3 I wonder if I could fit in that car 🤔

  • The rear end lools much better Wingless. Overall an amazing car!

  • Looks like a Ferrari

  • That color is so good. Omfg chevy take my money!

  • *starting price under 60K !!! this car gonna make the lower & middle class feel rich, as if they are in a real Ferrari or McLaren lol* 😂

  • get ready to see *EVERYBODY* & they moma in one of these!!! especially when it's only 60K!!! I applaud you Chevy but this sports car gonna get really annoying really fast this upcoming 2020 year.

  • Wow.... finally, some proper design and attention for the corvette .. good job GM..

  • @Roadshow Hey Tim, great to see you! A long time from your Engadget days. I love the example of the Corvette in your video, no spoiler and a nice practical color.

  • It's a less capable Acura NSX 🤷

  • Don't like the rear end or interior.

  • Trying very hard to be an F8 wannabe... I can see F8 influence throughout. Sadly it is still a Chevrolet. Why not just "be yourself" and stick to traditional corvette design.

  • Looks ugly

  • 2 words. F porsche

  • A cheap Ferrari!!!! Looooove it!!! Loooks stunning! I want it!!!!

  • ****1st Corvette available in right hand drive for less than $60k**** Regardless of their substantial price advantage, the Americans are clearly building the best Sports Cars in the World. Clearly, it's time to divest in a couple of Italian Companies, because their stock prices are sure to dip. Good Job Yanks!!!

  • Porsche has always set the benchmark when it come to build quality and certainly performance. Let's see if Chevy can even come close to that at this price point. Otherwise, it will just be another cheap alternative for the buyers until they can afford a real super car. Remember, Chevy never delivered a high quality build in any of their vehicles ever!

  • OMG nice

  • Please yell at GM to fix the rear end and center console for the love of god

  • This is next level. Ferrari should be very scared.

  • The new Corvette looks like what the giant bomb of the NSX reboot should’ve been. Having worked on Chevy Malibu’s, I absolutely have no respect for this brand, but this corvette does look pretty good. NGL. I hope it makes the owners happy

  • Is GM going to make a RHD for us Aussies

    • Yes, and import to Aus has already been confirmed by Holden.

  • This looks badass. Has a bit of an R8-vibe to it.

  • Wow idk how it 60k it looks like 200k

  • A brand new 1 ton Chevy Diesel cost $80,000 basically what makes you think this new C8 is going to be 60,000? At that price I would rather have Ford's new GT350 more horsepower and probably just as fast around the track. Just look at how tiny the tires are on the C8 I doubt it will be able to hold the track that well compared to the Ford GT or other mid-engine sports cars

  • Looks like an nsx

  • Nice Ferrari

  • Looks like a hybrid of a Ferrari and a Mclaren.

  • But now you can't touch the passenger

  • This car almost looks like a McLaren now!! It looks a lot more exotic than before & it will make everyone ask what car is that until they read that it's a Corvette! Which is a really good move!

  • Oooo look anotha beast car in neva gon afford

  • *Dodge Hellcats exits chatroom*

  • at least no retro styling

  • Back of car look. Like bmw 8 xD

  • Looks better then on the concept images, but still not a huge fan. The "upper cheeks" when looking from the front are to wide and sharp and the rear seems a little off on this type of ferrari / mclaren kind of car. What I like the most are the side intakes and how they connect to the back end.

  • soooo sexyy

  • Retro style would be better

  • A C8 at $60k is relatively cheap enough that I'm keeping my C7 manual transmission for 3 pedal engagement fun when I get a C8. Unlike other cars that I've owned in that I normally tradein to lower the cost of the new car.

  • A giant leap for an already great sports car. GlennFHoward

  • Vette? Looks like a rari

  • GM had to use Porsche and Ferrari as a benchmark. Why couldn’t they design their own car without studying someone else’s? 👎

  • 1:24 hearing your ring tap against the paint sent shivers down my spine 😬

  • nice but the wheels gotta go...

  • Chev casually drops the C8 while doug demuro is in nantucket

  • Its better looking than that new Ferrari, and thats a really bold thing to say, considering that the F12 is one of my favorite cars ever

  • 6.2 liter v8 but only giving 485hp? A Ferrari 458 had a naturally aspirated 4.5 liter v8 that produced 560hp. What are the extra liters for Chevy?

  • If I had 60K to spend on a car. ANY CAR. This midengine Corvette would be my #1 choice. Period.

  • Ford gt? NXS? Lotus hood Ferrari rear? Cmon Chevy, this ain’t a vette.....

  • I just wish it had a V10 with AWD and with NIGHT VISION! Did I leave anything out! Lol! I am serious.........

  • Nice Bargain for 60 grand but I'm saving my penny's for the Lotus Evija

  • Look like a ferrari

  • Yeah no way in hell it's doing 0-60 in less than 3 seconds.
