Chevrolet revealed 2020 C8 Corvette mid-engine Stingray

Chevrolet finally introduced the new, eighth generation of Corvette. New Corvette gets a brand new concept of drive ...

The Corvette C8 has changed the concept. For a long time she had a front engine, and now the aggregate is located in the central part of the car. 

"Corvette has always represented the pinnacle of innovation and boundary-pushing at GM," said GM President Mark Reuss. "The traditional front-engine vehicle reached its limits of performance, necessitating the new layout." 
New Vette did not give up the Stingray label, which means that from the viewpoint of comfort and entertainment, it is still typical Corvette. Nova Vette from 0 to 96 km / h arrives in less than 3 seconds (with the Z51 Performance package). It's driven by an atmospheric 8-cylinder engine, which is now rare in the supercar segment. It's a new generation of SmallBlock LT2, a 6.2-liter unit that develops 495 hp (369 kW) and 637 Nm of torque. Tremec has taken care of the 8-speed transmission. 
The unit with an aluminum block is equipped with a direct fuel injection system with a pressure of 150 bar and a system of automatic shut-off of cylinders. Due to the change in the concept, the cabin was moved 16 inches (42 centimeters) forward. The silhouette of a 4.630 mm long car is inspired by the modern combat aircraft F22 and F35. 
New Vette uses an architecture with a emphasized central tunnel, which combines low mass and high strength. The construction is made of cast aluminum, which is combined with carbon fiber and glass fiber parts. The weight of the car is 1,530 kilograms (1.5 tons).

The New Vette will start producing at Bowling Green at the end of the current year. Price in the United States is expected at the level of the forerunner - about $ 60,000.
