All new mid-engined Corvette Stingray revealed ...

A mid-engined Corvette has been the subject of much speculation for many years, and now it has finally arrived; the eighth generation Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. It is built around a backbone chassis, which features a naturally aspirated V8 engine that, crucially, is mounted amidships. An evolution of the existing LT2 unit, the Stingray's new V8 is good for 494 bhp. This power is transferred to the rear wheels through an eight-speed, dual clutch Tremec automatic gearbox. Tipping the scales, dry, at just 1,530 kg, the entry-level Corvette can sprint to 100 km/h in less than 3 seconds. The exterior design is clearly an evolution of the C7 generation, which means the new mid-engined machine is still instantly recognisable as a Corvette. The interior is sculpted around the driver and features the latest in gadgets and creature comforts. The Corvette Stingray will be available to customers later this year as a 2020 model. At the launch, the only optional package available is the Z51, which features performance upgrades like larger wheels and brakes. What is perhaps most remarkable of all is that the new and hugely capable Corvette will have a sticker price of less than $60,000.
