Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2020.

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is the new 8th generation mid-engined sports car.
In mid-June this year in the United States, many years later, a new Chevrolet Corvette with the C8 index was presented. The full name of this sports car is the Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray. The C8 index means that this car has a completely new eighth generation engine. And this is a kind of breakthrough in the field of engineering of the Chevrolet company.

In addition, the engine of the new Chevrolet Corvette is now installed not in front under the hood, but immediately behind the seats. Cars with this engine arrangement are called central engine. Such a solution is not some kind of innovation in the field of engineering, as it has been practiced for a long time. Many popular companies that produce high-speed cars install the engine in the central part of the body, as this has a positive effect on dynamics.

In addition to the technical part, the new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette has been improved in everything else (interior, electronics, appearance, as well as an upgraded suspension). With all these improvements and innovations, it is expected to be one of the most affordable mid-engined sports cars around. Also, representatives of the Chevrolet company hope that the car will become one of the most popular sports cars for the same reasons.


Although the appearance of the Corvette body has undergone significant changes due to the transfer of the engine to the central part, the general features have remained unchanged. Having seen this sports car for the first time, it cannot be confused with another car. Also, due to the transfer of the engine, the passenger compartment cage was moved closer to the front (more than 40 centimeters).

The front of the car has a rather predatory look thanks to the sharp-shaped headlights, interesting design of the bonnet and aggressive bumper. Almost the entire bumper is filled with a black grille and large side air intakes with an unusual pattern.

The side of the body looks no less aggressive than the front. Almost the entire profile of the car is filled with a variety of relief and elements that improve aerodynamics. The huge air intakes located closer to the rear wheel arches look especially impressive.

The low silhouette characteristic of all sports cars does not allow this car to have large side windows, but it does not need it, since the driver’s visibility is excellent. Also, it should be noted that the side mirrors are slightly larger here than on previous models.

The aft part of this monster looks especially grandiose. Although there is a style here, there are still some innovations and improvements. Out of the usual Chevrolet Corvette, overall optics remained, with two square-shaped lamps on each side and, perhaps, that’s all.

Just below the stop lights, black air intakes are located, giving the car an even more formidable look. The black small wing looks harmoniously. The diffuser of the car is completely black and contains two twin pipes of the square-shaped exhaust system.

When designing the cabin, the main task was to make the driver’s seat as comfortable and visually as possible. For this, it was decided to lower the central panel as low as possible. The center console of the car has been greatly enriched. A large touchscreen display allows you to customize most of the functionality and a number of various buttons, protruding almost to the end of the tunnel.

The steering wheel has only two spokes located closer to the bottom, which allows the driver to easily observe the rather modest dashboard.

For the interior, the Corvette developers used the highest quality materials, such as:

high quality plastic,
carbon and stainless metal.

There are three options for seating in this car:

1. GT1 — seats for everyday driving. These seats are comfortable enough with lateral support and lumbar support. Genuine leather is used for the upholstery of these seats.

2. GT2 is a racing seat. Some CFRP elements are used here. Genuine leather is also used for upholstery. There is heating and ventilation.

3. Competition Sport — These seats are designed for professional track racing. They have carbon fiber headrests and powerful lateral support.

The new Chevrolet Stingray has two luggage compartments (front and rear), but they are not large. Together, both luggage compartments have a volume of just over 350 liters. This is not a bad indicator of the luggage compartment for a sports car.

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has a 6.2-liter V8 petrol engine with 503 horsepower. In fact, this engine is a modified version of its predecessor, whose power was only 465 horsepower.

In addition to the motor, an eight-speed robotic gearbox is used here.

The first six speeds will be used for fast driving during races, and the seventh and eighth — for civilian travel, which allows significant fuel savings.

On a test drive, the car showed incredible dynamics. It accelerates to 100 km / h in less than 3 seconds.

Release date and prices

The production of the new Corvette from Chevrolet will be handled by engineers of the famous Bowling Green plant, which is located in Kentucky. Car sales in many countries of the world, including Russia, are scheduled for late fall or early winter 2019.

The price for the base model will be about $ 60,000, which translates into Russian rubles, about 3.8 million. That’s a low enough price for a full-fledged racing car.
