The 2021 Corvette Stingray has arrived in the UK. And it's ace. It has a mid-engined 6.2-litre V8 making 495bhp which means it's good for 0-60mph in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 184mph. 

And it costs? Well, it depends. It could be as much as £130,000 because at the moment you'll have to get one via an importer such as Clive Sutton to whom we're very grateful for the test of this car.

The new C8 Corvette, though, here goes up against Europe's best. We've got a Porsche 911 Carrera, with a 3.0-litre turbocharged engine making 380bhp, hitting 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 182mph, at a cost of £82,793. But those relatively low power and speed stats have never held a 911 back before. In fact, the 911 and Corvette are two of the few cars that could try to claim to be the greatest sports car of all time.

So which is it to be? Join us as we hit the circuit to find out.

[VIDEO] Official GM Footage of the 2020 Corvette Stingrays Driving in Nevada

As part of the 2020 Corvette First Drive Event that we attended earlier this week, Chevrolet offered up a ton of new media to support the roll-out of the new mid-engine sports car.

Yesterday we featured three quick 30-second videos that showed the 2020 Corvette on the roads, at Spring Mountain, and on the Las Vegas strip. For you now, we are sharing this longer video featuring B-roll video footage of three different 2020 Corvettes driving through the Nevada desert.

The running footage shows off a Torch Red Z51 Coupe at the beginning, then an Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic base car, and finally an Accelerate Yellow Z51 Coupe. The video runs nearly 5:00 minutes long and it also contains some cool drone footage to boot!

As its B-roll, some of the video contains sound while other segments are silent. We recommend you put on the driving music you would be playing if these were your Stingrays and turn it up loud, because…Corvette!

2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray Coupe - POV First Impressions

  • Chevrolet shared the first video of the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06's engine revving and accelerating.
  • It will be powered by a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter flat-plane-crank V-8 engine that should rev close to 9000 rpm and make more than 600 horsepower.
  • The C8 Corvette Z06 will debut this fall.

We've seen—and heard—the upcoming C8 Corvette Z06 testing numerous times, and we're obsessed with its naturally aspirated flat-plane-crank shriek. Chevy will finally unveil the first of the coming high-performance Vettes this fall, and now the company has shared the first official clip of the Z06's engine revving and accelerating on the street and track.


The new Corvette Z06 will be powered by a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V-8 engine, and it has a flat-plane crankshaft like a Ferrari V-8. A detuned version of this engine is found in the C8.R race car. In the Z06, it should rev to between 8500 and 9000 rpm, produce more than 600 horsepower, and pair with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. A flat-plane crank results in a smoother and higher-pitched sound than a cross-plane V-8, which the C8 Corvette Stingray uses.

Pictured above is what we think the new Z06 will look like. It will have a wider track and more aggressive aerodynamics, including a larger rear wing. We've seen prototypes testing with and without the wing as well as ones with either a center-exit quad-tip exhaust system or two exhaust tips on either corner.

Look for more information on the new Corvette Z06 in the coming months. The new car should arrive by the end of next year, priced starting at about $85,000.

Stingray video corvette

Does Chevrolet take pride in the Corvette? Owners certainly do, and ever since the American sports car received its mid-engine makeover in 2019, it's remained a sweetheart for Chevy fanatics while also impressing the world with its bang-for-buck performance. We also know there are all kinds of nifty Easter eggs hidden in and around the C8, and we thought we'd seen them all by now.

A recent video from Drive 615 shows us otherwise. This short walkaround video doesn't dive into the engine bay or the various features of the 'Vette's infotainment screen. Instead, this is a case study of just how many times a manufacturer can hide a logo on a car. We already know about all the tiny Corvette wings used on the rear glass instead of normal round frits. This is done to shield adhesives under the glass from UV rays. We also knew about the hidden Corvette flag on the speaker grille between the seats, and of course you'll see a 'Vette logo as part of the startup splash screen on the digital speedometer.

Look closely at the taillights, however, and you'll find another tiny logo on the lower inside edge of the housings. Moving to front there's another emblem in the lights, this time on the outer edge of the headlights. The Corvette wings are found on the driver-side base of the windshield along with Team Corvette lettering, and if you move to the passenger side of the windshield you'll see a small likeness of Zora Arkus-Duntov, the man who first envisioned a mid-engine Corvette over a half-century ago.

But wait, there's more.

A sticker in the driver door jam features the Corvette logo. It's included on the Stingray door sills. You know it's on the back of the seat headrests, but did you also know the texture of the trim between the seats is literally filled with little 'Vette wings? How about the logo stamped on the side seat strap near the headrests, or the one on the key fob? No, not the big colored emblem, but the other one on the side of the fob. Yeah, Chevrolet is very keen to remind people the C8 is no Ferrari.

Is it excessive? That's certainly debatable, but it seems Corvette owners love it so it's tough to fault Chevy for giving buyers what they want.

2020 Corvette Stingray first drive review: Born to dance

MSRP $59,995.00

“The Corvette has always been America's sports car, but now it's ready to take on the world.”


  • Accessible performance
  • Well-integrated driver aids
  • Slick digital displays
  • Everyday usability


  • Limited luggage space
  • Awkward HVAC controls

With a history stretching back to the 1950s, the Chevrolet Corvette is all about tradition. Yet with the latest, eighth-generation Vette, Chevy is breaking with it.

The 2020 Corvette Stingray is the most radical update of a Corvette in decades. The engine moves from the front of the car to the middle, a configuration preferred by the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini. Corvette also embraces tech like never before, with a cockpit built around digital displays. Chevy even ditched the manual transmission for a dual-clutch gearbox.

What hasn’t changed? The Corvette’s value. The car’s $59,995 base price is close to a Toyota Supra or Porsche 718 Boxster/Cayman, but its performance rivals cars in the six-figure range. You can spend a lot more on a Corvette. Fully-loaded models sticker for closer to $80,000. Even then, it’s a deal.


2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

It’s hard to overemphasize the 2020 Corvette Stingray’s move from a front-engine to mid-engine configuration. Chevy has toyed with the idea since the 1960s, building numerous prototypes and concept cars along the way. The change is a major breakthrough for Corvette, elevating it from blue collar sports car into a rival for European exotics.

Why the change? “We’ve run out of performance capability in the front-engine architecture,” said Ed Piatek, the new Corvette’s chief engineer.

Rear-wheel drive limits traction. Horsepower is no good if you can’t put it to the road, after all. By moving the engine behind the driver, the mid-engine configuration shifts more weight rearward, putting pounds on the rear tires to help them grip.

It’s hard to overemphasize the 2020 Corvette Stingray’s move to a mid-engine configuration is.

Alex MacDonald, Chevy’s vehicle performance manager, said a mid-engine layout also helps the driver. The driver is closer to the front wheels, so the steering column can be shorter, which makes steering more responsive. The center of gravity is also closer to the driver’s hips, so the movement of the car feels more natural in corners.

That’s why a mid-engine layout is standard in IndyCar and Formula One, not to mention every supercar to grace a child’s bedroom wall poster.


Going mid-engine has a drawback, however. The engine occupies space normally reserved for people and stuff.

The 2020 Stingray has two trunks – one in front, and one in rear. The front trunk can accommodate a maximum-size airline carry-on bag. Between the two trunks, the 2020 Stingray has 12.6 cubic feet of total cargo volume. That’s a bit less than the previous-generation Corvette, and the current Porsche 911, if you add up the space of the Porsche’s front trunk and the area behind the front seats.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray interior

The rear trunk can hold a set of golf clubs, but only if you leave the roof up. The removable roof panel on all Corvette coupes (a convertible model is on the way) takes up most of the rear trunk when stowed. Also, don’t be surprised if items stored in the rear trunk get a little toasty due to the engine.

Mid-engine cars often look great, but can be stressful to drive due to cramped cabins and limited outward visibility. That isn’t the case with the 2020 Corvette. The wide windshield offers an excellent view of the road, and large, well-placed mirrors compensate for the car’s tiny rear window and wide hips. Piloting this Stingray through traffic on the Las Vegas Strip wasn’t any more nerve wracking than any other car.


Despite its low price, the Corvette’s interior isn’t spartan. The car comes standard with a 12.0-inch digital instrument cluster and 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen. It supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and has a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.

Graphics for both screens were clear and easy to read while driving. Chevy also offers a “stealth” mode that turns off all nonessential information for night driving, but I didn’t have chance to test it.

The infotainment screen is angled toward the driver for easier use, but is still reachable by the passenger. Analog HVAC controls are placed on a long divider between the seats. While it’s good to not have to rely on the touchscreen for these functions, the controls are poorly positioned.

The 2020 Corvette is available with blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert, but you have to move up from the base 1LT trim level to the 2LT to get them.

A 360-degree camera system is also available, along with the digital rearview mirror previously seen in the Chevy Bolt EV and other GM vehicles. This streams video from a rear-mounted camera directly to the mirror, effectively eliminating blind spots. It definitely comes in handy when backing up, as you’ll see about as much through the rear window as you would looking through an airliner window with the shade half down.

Scraping the front end on speed bumps and steep driveways is a problem with low-slung sports cars, but Chevy has a solution for that, too. The 2020 Corvette has a front-end lift system that raises the nose 40 millimeters at the press of a button. It can also remember up to 1,000 locations, so you can set it to activate automatically when pulling into your driveway.

Sports cars traditionally have Spartan interiors, but that’s not the case with this Corvette.

Chevy didn’t just use tech to avoid parking lot dings. Clever software helps any driver get the most out of the Corvette on a racetrack. The car gets the latest version of Chevy’s Performance Traction Management system, which manages the engine, transmission, and magnetic suspension (if equipped) to keep the driver out of trouble.

“We’ve got a system that will outsmart the best driver,” MacDonald said. The system has launch control for quick standing starts, and even a “flying car mode” that detects when the car is airborne and preps for a drama-free landing.

That system could get even better in the future. The Corvette was built around General Motors’ latest electrical architecture, which allows for over-the-air (OTA) software updates. Every major aspect of the car can be updated remotely, Piatek told Digital Trends.

There’s even a “flying car mode” that detects when the car is airborne and preps for a drama-free landing.

Like the previous-generation Corvette, the 2020 Stingray also gets Chevy’s Performance Data Recorder. It can record video, audio, and telemetry of laps so you can show off to your friends, or find ways to improve your driving technique. This latest version includes 1080p resolution, and a dash cam mode for on-road driving.


The Corvette’s engine is old school American muscle. Like the previous generation, the 2020 Stingray is powered by a 6.2-liter V8. It’s been modified to work in a mid-engine car. Chevy also added a dry-sump oiling system to improve on-track performance and, of course, has bumped up the power. With an optional performance exhaust, the new V8 – codenamed LT2 – makes 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, compared to 455 hp and 460 lb-ft for the old LT1 engine.

Equipped with the optional Z51 performance package, the 2020 Corvette will do zero to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, according to Chevy. That’s quicker than an Aston Martin Vantage, Lamborghini Huracán Evo, or Porsche 911 Carrera S – all of which cost tens of thousands of dollars more than the Stingray. Top speed is 194 mph, according to Chevy.

The V8 is coupled to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, making the 2020 Stingray the first Corvette without a manual transmission. While this takes away some driver involvement, the dual-clutch transmission can shift quicker than a human, and was easier to integrate with the Corvette’s Performance Traction Management system, MacDonald said.

Even novice drivers will be able to go pretty fast with confidence.

The combination of V8 brawn and software brains makes the 2020 Corvette one of the most well-rounded performance cars available. It’s comfortable and quiet in normal driving, and composed and predictable when you get more aggressive. A manual transmission might be more fun, but the dual-clutch unit shifts so smoothly that gear changes are imperceptible. And the Chevy V8 exhaust note is still pure bliss.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

When pushed on the track at Spring Mountain Motor Resort, the Corvette didn’t break a sweat. It’s not just fast. It makes you look good. The driver aids that keep you from crashing work in the background, so you don’t just feel like you’re along for the ride. It takes skill to push this car to its limit, but even novice drivers will be able to go fast with confidence.

The new car felt more nimble than the previous-generation Corvette, so Chevy’s claims about responsive steering hold up. The square steering wheel isn’t as awkward to use as you might think, and doesn’t block the instrument cluster, as in the Porsche 911. However, the steering didn’t feel as sharp as some other mid-engine cars, specifically the McLaren 570S, and rear-wheel drive versions of the Lamborghini Huracán.

Gas mileage and safety

Most people don’t buy a Corvette for gas mileage, but the latest version is rated at 19 mpg combined (15 mpg city, 27 mpg highway). The car’s trip computer showed a best of 31.4 mpg during a drive through the desert outside Las Vegas. Those are solid numbers for a big engine, likely aided by a cylinder deactivation system that shuts off four cylinders under light throttle loads.

The 2020 Corvette is a new vehicle, so predicting future reliability is difficult. Chevy doesn’t have the best reputation for reliability. The Corvette’s bespoke engine, dual-clutch transmission, and aluminum-intensive construction may make it more difficult to fix than a Chevy Equinox.

The Corvette has the same three-year, 36,000-mile, basic warranty and five-year, 60,000-mile, powertrain warranty as other Chevy models. That’s typical coverage in the auto industry.

Crash-test ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) aren’t available. Because the Corvette is a low-volume vehicle, they likely never will be. Neither organization rated the previous-generation model.

How DT would configure this car

To build our ideal Corvette, we would start by upgrading from the base 1LT trim level to the 2LT. This adds blind spot monitoring, front and rear cameras, the digital rearview mirror, and a 14-speaker Bose audio system (1LT models get a 10-speaker Bose system).

On top of that, we’d add the Z51 performance package. This adds $5,000 to the sticker price, but includes upgraded brakes, tires, and suspension, a performance exhaust system that unlocks maximum horsepower, and an electronic limited slip differential that ensures power reaches the pavement efficiently.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

We’d also upgrade from the base GT1 seats to the GT2 seats – a $1,495 option. These offer more support than the GT1 seats, but aren’t as aggressively bolstered as the available Competition seats, so they’re likely to be more comfortable in everyday use. However, drivers of different body types might think differently.

Without indulging in any of the customization choices, these options inflate the price of our hypothetical Corvette from the base $59,995 to $73,790.

Our take

The 2020 Corvette Stingray is a great car. Its thoughtful integration of tech, impeccable manners in everyday driving, and approachable performance make this a car anyone can enjoy.

The previous-generation Corvette was great as well, but Chevy’s ambitious reinvention has elevated this model. Performance is a step above other cars in the Corvette’s price range, such as the Toyota Supra and Porsche 718 Boxster/Cayman, and so is the tech.

That makes the latest Corvette more of a rival to exotics like the Ferrari F8 Tributo and Lamborghini Huracán, although this humble Chevy will likely never have the caché of the Italians. The Porsche 911 and Aston Martin Vantage lag behind the Corvette on the spec sheet, but they offer a more old school experience, with available manual transmissions and more traditional cockpit layouts.

Some media outlets have also compared the 2020 Corvette to the Ford Shelby GT500, a pumped-up version of the Mustang designed with track driving in mind. But the two cars are very different in character. The GT500 is a prizefighter that’s taken ballet lessons. The new Corvette was born to dance.

Should you get one?

Yes. The Corvette has leapt from sports car to supercar.

2021 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe review: 2021 Chevy Corvette Stingray review: There's nothing quite like it

Now in its seventh generation, the rear-wheel-drive 2014 Chevrolet Corvette continues to push the envelope for what is possible from an affordable, efficient, made-in-America sports car.

Its redesign is total, and it begins outside, where sharp, purposeful lines give the new car a slippery .29 drag coefficient. Body materials include a carbon fiber hood and roof panel, while the doors, fenders, quarter panels, and rear hatch all benefit from lighter density sheet molding over the previous car. On convertibles, the power convertible top is operable at speeds up to 30 mph. The C7 features an aluminum space frame that is 99 pounds lighter than its predecessor yet 57% stiffer, while a carbon nano-composite floor pan replaces the heavier balsa sandwich construction of the C6.

Inside, the C7 boasts a cockpit that for the first time puts it on par with some of Europe's best. The driving position is near-perfect, and the seats are vastly improved, with increased comfort and better support for hard driving. An 8-inch touchscreen dominates the center console, while soft-touch materials are more abundant. Finally, the new car offers 15 cubic-feet of cargo room under the rear hatch -- enough to hold luggage, golf clubs, or the bag full of money you saved by not buying a Porsche 911.

The heart of the Corvette, of course, is its powerplant. The 6.2L direct-injection V8 has been completely rethought and now delivers 455 horsepower and 460 foot-pounds of torque. It is coupled to a standard 7-speed manual transmission that features Active Rev Matching, which blips the throttle during up- and down-shifts, eliminating the need for heel-and-toeing by the driver during braking. The combination is good enough to propel the Corvette from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds, while also returning 17 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. A 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters is optional, as is a performance exhaust, which increases output to 460 horses.

Coupes and convertibles both come in standard models and high-performance Z51 guise, which allows for a 0?60 mph time of 3.8 seconds. The Z51 Performance Package adds larger wheels (19-inch front, 20-inch rear vs. 18/19- inch) with Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP summer-only tires, a dry sump oil system, electronic limited slip differential, larger front brakes (13.6-inch vs. 12.6-inch) with slotted rotors, performance gear ratios, special suspension components, differential and transmission cooling and an aerodynamic package to reduce lift and improve high-speed stability. Chevy's trick Magnetic Selective Ride Control is optional on the Z51.

The 1LT, or base, trim offers a 9-speaker Bose audio system, rear vision camera, keyless access with push-button start, power tilt/telescopic steering column, 8-way power leather seats, two 8-inch HD color displays, and a Driver Mode Selector, which allows drivers to customize the driving experience by selecting one of five distinct modes -- Weather, Eco, Tour, Sport and Track. Each mode adjusts steering, throttle, traction and more.

2LT Corvettes get heated and ventilated seats with Corvette emblems, an upgraded Bose sound system, auto-dimming mirrors, Chevy's color Head-Up Display and SiriusXM satellite radio with a one-year subscription. Finally 3LT cars offer all of the above plus a custom leather-wrapped interior with Nappa leather seating, navigation and color-matched instrumentation to the interior.

Standard safety features in all Corvette Stingrays include stability and traction controls, a rearview camera, driver and passenger front and side airbags, and a 6-month subscription to OnStar.
