Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray 2021. The Corvette C8 for Europe lost power and became more expensive at the same time.

The supercar Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray eighth generation debuted in the U.S. two years ago, and the fall of 2021 began official delivery of the model in Europe.

The first batch of cars came in a special Launch Edition. Also open for orders for regular versions, and customers from the Old World can choose both targa body with removable roof panels, and a full roadster with a folding top.

We should also note that Cadillac dealers sell new Corvettes in the European market.

Curiously, the power of the lower-shaft 6.2-liter atmospheric V8 in the specification for Europe was reduced from the original U.S. 502 hp and 637 Nm to 482 hp and 613 Nm of torque.

The adaptation of the engine to more stringent environmental standards Euro-6d and installation of particulate filter are to blame. Nevertheless, even with such a return, the European Corvette C8 with a robotized transmission gains one hundred from a place for 3.5 seconds and can accelerate up to 296 km/h.

And the supercar also got a right-hand drive version from the factory, which should spur demand for it in the UK.

The cost of the model in Germany starts at 86,900 euros, for the roadster they ask at least €93,400 and the Launch Edition variant costs from €99,000.

For comparison, in the States the base Corvette C8 costs $62,200, but in Europe the standard equipment includes 2LT and Z51 packages, which are optional over the ocean (though even with them the price tag is noticeably lower — $75,840).

The 2LT package includes Bose music, heated and ventilated seats, regular navigation, a projection display, and on-board telematics.

The Z51 kit includes a bodykit, Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, reinforced Brembo brakes, sport exhaust, adjustable dampers and an electronically controlled differential lock.

In the U.S., the Corvette is available in 1LT, 2LT and 3LT configurations, but the 1LT is not available in Europe.

The 2LT comes standard with a projection display, navigation, a 14-speaker Bose audio system, a rearview camera, and heated and ventilated seats.

Regardless of a complete set, European buyers are entitled to Z51 Performance Pack.

This package includes not only the already mentioned exhaust system, but also manually adjustable springs, Brembro brakes with enlarged discs, aerodynamic dodger, additional air intakes in the front bumper, electronic differential lock and Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.

A system that raises the Corvette’s «nose» up to 38 km/h by 5 centimeters to traverse thresholds is optional.
