The Chevrolet Corvette has been a true American icon since it was first introduced in 1953. This Corvette C8 for sale is part of the radically redesigned 8th generation of Corvette. The 8th generation saw the engine move from its forward position to a mid-engine layout that departs from decades of Corvette design.
This Chevrolet Corvette C8 for sale features a powerful 6.2L V8 engine positioned behind the driver. The visceral V8 is able to produce 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. The newly updated engine features a dry-sump oil system that makes sure the engine is properly lubricated even under the most extreme of G forces. A first for the Corvette Stingray is an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. Paddle shifters allow the driver to make the gear selection on their own. But even when not in control, the Corvette is tuned to keep the gear within the engine’s peak power band as often as possible.
Altogether, the new C8 for sale is able to hit 60 mph in a lightning-quick 3.3 seconds.
As a result of the engine being moved, the Corvette C8 attains a lower center of gravity. Combined with an improved suspension, this is undoubtedly the best handling Corvette ever produced. An updated shorter and stiffer electronic steering system allow the driver to take full advantage of this nimbleness with every driver input being faithfully followed.
