The US car dealer finally introduced one of the most anticipated cars for 2019, the Corvette C8 Stingray. The emblem model for the first time was equipped with a medium-term engine, so it had to compete tighter with Ferrari. The supercar will be produced in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and the price will start at $ 60,000.
The eighth generation Corvette is equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 aluminum alloy engine all aluminum with a maximum power of 495 hp. This unit is powered by an 8-speed automatic transmission with two couplings and a maximum torque of 637 Nm which is only transmitted to the rear wheels, which promises great pleasure for future owners. The transmission will also have a mode that allows the driver to change the gear from the steering wheel. From 0-100 km / h Stingray will accelerate in less than 3 seconds.
The average engine displacement with a glass lid stretches along the supercar to 4630mm. Compared to the previous model, the width increased – 1933 mm, but the height was smaller – 1234 mm. The wheelbase size is 2723 mm while weighing 1527 kg.
The dampers can increase the front of the Stingary by 40 mm, making it easier to overcome road inequality. This is possible thanks to the Magnetic Ride Control chassis. The Corvette C8 also features an electronic differential lock control system with limited slips. The front splitter and rear spoiler produce up to 181 kg. compressive strength when spinning. In addition, the driver can choose from six control modes – Weather, Tour, Sports, Track, MyMode and Z, and the last two can independently adjust vehicle electronics.
The new Corvette design retains some elements from its predecessor but is generally "more global" and in the style of the latest two-seat models of McLaren and Ferrari. Chevrolet promises a more "more driver-oriented" interior with a short hood that provides better visibility.
