The Chevy Corvette C8 offers impressive performance, a 490-hp V-8 engine, and also an affordable base price. The Chevy Corvette C8 is available as either a coupe or a convertible with a folding hardtop. Since the coupe version has a roof lift-off for open-top motoring anyway, we’d prefer to go with it. If it is upgraded to the 2LT version, it adds a generous number of features, including a head-up display, a wireless smartphone charging pad, ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel, a 14-speaker Bose stereo system, blind-spot monitoring, etc. The Z51 performance version is also a must-have kind of version everyone must be interested in as it brings all of Corvette’s best performance-oriented gear.
Although the engine is in a new location, it now behind the passenger compartment instead of in front of it, the engine of the Chevy Corvette C8 remains a 6.2-liter V-8, though one making 490 horsepower and the other 470 lb-ft of torque. With the dual-mode performance exhaust that is part of the Z51 package, it creates about 495 horsepower.
The new Chevy Corvette’s interior remains a two-seat layout, but the cabin is shifted up closer to the car’s nose to contain the mid-mounted engine. The interior of the Chevy Corvette C8 is lined in materials such as leather, real metal, and imitation materials and even has a stitched headliner.
The roof of the vehicle is removable just like those of previous Corvettes, and it fits inside the car’s trunk just behind the engine compartment. The rear trunk also can contain two golf bags, and a front trunk offers a lot of room for luggage or cargo while the roof is stowed. The driver sits behind a squared-off steering wheel and a 12.0-inch reconfigurable gauge display, a huge infotainment touchscreen is angled toward the driver for the driver to easily use.
