2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Will Be Produced In Right-Hand Drive Too

The 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette has just been unveiled and the car manufacturer has announced that it will be sold in right-hand drive configuration.

Speaking during the presentation of the long-awaited mid-engined American supercar, executive chief engineer of the Corvette, Tadge Juechter, revealed that the supercar has been designed to meet standards across the globe, adding that it will be sold in right-hand drive configuration.

That’s big news for markets across Europe, including the UK, as well as others like Australia. At this stage, however, it remains to be seen exactly which countries the new C8 Corvette will be sold in. Nevertheless, news that the car will be available as a right-hand drive model is bound to excite enthusiasts around the world who have long been forced to pay thousands of dollars to convert cars from left-hand drive to be made road legal in select countries.

By selling the Chevrolet Corvette in both left-hand and right-hand drive configurations, the company will likely enjoy more sales than ever before. The mid-engine supercar certainly won’t sell in the numbers of the current Ford Mustang but it does promise to give European and Japanese supercars something to worry about.

The entry-level C8 Corvette is dubbed the ‘Stingray’ and powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine pumping out 490 hp in standard form and 495 hp and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm) of torque with the available Z51 Performance Package. This engine is mated exclusively to an eight-speed automatic transmission sending power exclusively to the rear wheels.

    Design is a bit too busy in some areas but having it in RHD is a mega win!

    Damn, that’s a crap looking car. All this time and this is what they came up with. They should fire their designer, maybe literally.

    Love this move by Chevy. RHD markets especially Australia will go nuts over this car if it carries over the image of being a bargain mid engined Supercar. Although i do believe RHD versions will be markedly more expensive(understandably).

    That price squashes any apprehensions one might have about it being not as good looking as other supercars. <3sec 0-60 for 60k USD? I don't care if it looks like a pontiac aztek at that point. It actually looks very very decent.
