Get Your Closest Look Yet At 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is here and the crew over at Donut Media recently had the opportunity to spend some time with the long-awaited, mid-engined supercar from the ‘States.

The C8 Corvette featured in this video is painted blue and outfitted with the available Z51 Performance Package. We think it looks very good but we’re not entirely convinced that blue is the best color for the supercar. Nonetheless, it is pretty cool to see the new ‘Vette on video and in such great detail. If you’re still not convinced by the car’s design, we highly recommend watching the video below.

As you probably know by now, the new Corvette is powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine pumping out 495 hp and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm) of torque with the available performance exhaust. All new Corvette models are fitted as standard (and exclusively) with a dual-clutch eight-speed automatic transmission sending power to the rear wheels. Chevrolet says the new Stingray will accelerate to 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than three seconds.

This clip from Donut Media also takes a deep dive into the interior of the new Corvette which looks and feels much more premium than any other generation before it. There is a squared-off two-spoke steering wheel, a fully-digital cluster, a touchscreen infotainment system, and the intriguing spine which houses the air conditioning controls and separates the driver and passenger. We’re yet to get behind the wheel of the new Corvette but the cabin certainly looks on par with much more expensive mid-engined supercars.

Below, we’ve also added a few more videos from the presentation of the C8 Corvette at the Concours d’elegance of America, in Plymouth, Michigan this past weekend.

    The deluge of C8 articles continues with no signs of stopping.

      bc this is truly a landmark moment.

      It’s the greatest version of one of the greatest American cars ever. That’s monumental. Especially since this may be the last purely ICE version of the Corvette we’ll ever see.

        To be fair, you don’t know this. On paper, it seems so, but issues can rise quickly. A video I saw mentioned the rear vents for heat extraction, they’re incredibly small compared to various mid engine vehicles. We’ve already had a Corvette that had heat soak issues. Even the C7 with the enlarged blower still was liable for inability to keep cool.

        That’s only one example. DCT transmissions can be difficult. Remember the issues BMW had with the E90 M5 and variants? Most manufactures needed to have 2-3 MY revisions before their transmissions smoothed out and even then many switched to ZF torque converters. Not to be a debbie downer, I like the new C8, but its not the second coming. This is the base model of a car nobody has driven in the real world. Wait and see.

        • Octane

          There was no E90 M5. You must mean the F90 M5. There was the E60 M5 with the SMG II. The E90 was the M3 sedan, E92 was the M3 Coupe, E93 was the M3 convertible. All 3 E9X variants could be had with a DCT or manual.

    Honestly, the base C8 looks choice. Needs aftermarket wheels.

  • TheBelltower

    This thing looks like money. I haven’t been able to say that about any modern corvette… ever.

  • carsmofo

    It looks so perfect without that half-assed spoiler.

    • john1168

      I hate that crappy looking spoiler but I’m glad you can order a different one which I think looks much better. I can’t wait to see what they come up with for the active aero.

  • ErnieB

    Chevy really pulled it off! Even in basic trim it looks nice. I’d take mine without the spoiler and nicer rims. This car set the bar pretty high in terms of value-to-package. Good looks, good performance, and great price is something not seen in this segment—actually pretty much all segments.

  • Stigasawuswrecks

    Man oh man that thing sounds glorious. I’ve always respected the numbers a Vette put down but never ever cared to own one. Now I want one so badly and hope to have one by next year.

    • john1168

      I can’t wait to hear what the next flat plane quad cam (rumored) engine sounds like! But yeah, this sounds pretty awesome!

  • Edward

    Reminds me more of a F430 each time I see it…

  • Tabs Luther

    Especially with the slightly off-colored wheels! Bad combo.
