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

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?

  • 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.

  • 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.....

  • 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.

  • ****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!

  • 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 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.

  • 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.
