According to the dynamic characteristics, the Corvette C8 met all expectations, surprised the brand management and factory engineers.
According to official sources, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, equipped with a package of options Z51 showed acceleration from zero to 60 miles per hour - 2,9 seconds, and travels a quarter mile in 11,2 seconds, reaching a speed of 195 km / h. In the absence of an optional package, overclocking will not be so rapid, but the deviation will be only one tenth of a second.
It is noteworthy that, as standard, the sports car demonstrates an increased top speed in 198 km / h thanks to a more streamlined body shape.
Now dwell on the reactions. The bottom line is that the performance significantly exceeded the expectations of the creators, even though the 6,2 liter engine has exactly the same displacement as the previous generation LT1 engine. Cars will be delivered to customers with a significant delay - only in February of next year, and this is not the final deadline, all the fault is the long strike of GM employees.
