My First Drive in the NEW 2020 Corvette C8!
MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Car of the Year | 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
The new 2020 Corvette Stingray is here and it’s time for my first drive! Ever since the huge reveal event I’ve been looking forward to having a go to see what the mid-engined C8 is actually like, and this is finally the day!
For the first time, the Corvette is now a mid-engined car with a 6.2l naturally aspirated V8 mounted behind the occupants. Pushing out 495bhp through an 8spd Tremec dual clutch it boasts impressive numbers; 0-60mph in 2.9s and on to 194mph. In traditional fashion the Stingray offers a removable targa roof panel that can be stowed in the back to hear even more from the exhaust. Onboard are a whole host of new technologies, features, gadgets and controls to play with.
Let’s have a full run through of everything you could want to know about the new generation of Corvette and find out how it stacks up against expectations.
Kicking off from Las Vegas, I’m sharing a car with Matt Maran Motoring to explore the Lake Mead area and get a feel for what it’s all about. Check Matt out too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCu3fngdIGYCQ-c7YG0e9FuQ
