Here it is the real figures of mid-engined 'Vette' C8

After waiting for a long time, finally the latest Corvette figure is finally released. Yes, since 3 years ago when all of us for the first time saw a glimpse of the car.

And now, so far the curiosity of us has finally paid off because Chevy recently on July 18. 2019 has been launched the 8th generation Corvete car named Chevrolet C8 Corvette Stingray.

This car is also reportedly going to be released in 2020. And from its current appearance there is no change that is more than just a paradigm for the most iconic sports car in America.

Likely the American automotive manufacturer wants to turn back 'on' their mid-engined Corvette that first was initiated by Zora Arkus-Duntov in more than half a century ago. And for decades, many mid-engined car prototypes have begun to be shown to public. Some of them almost get the green light to enter the production line.

As quoted of Motor1, the new mid-engine cabin layout gives the Corvette a completely fresh greenhouse with a pair of digital displays for the instrument cluster and infotainment system. The wraparound arrangement looks quite cozy and driver-centric, with a beefy center console separating the driver from the passenger.

And something of a surprise in this age of clean lines – fans of buttons will love the veritable drag strip of manual controls nestled in the C8’s center spine. Some might find the buttons – which operate the Corvette’s climate functions for the dash and seats – to be unsightly. However, there is something to be said for simply pressing a switch as opposed to navigating a display.

As quoted from Road Show, the company said the car designed with potential electrification in mind. And when asked more about that, the manufacturer did not elaborate further. So there is speculation that the possibility of the car will using a mild-hybrid powertrain or use a front-axle electric motor to add all-wheel drive.
As far as is known, this car will use a LT2 6.2-liter pushrod V8 engine able to make 495 horsepower of power and 470 pound-feet of torque. Then those power is handled exclusively by the latest eight-speed automatic double clutch system, so that enough to shove the mostly aluminum C8 Corvette to 60 miles per hour in less than 3 seconds (when equipped with the optional Z51 performance package).
And with a starting price tags of $60,000, it sounds like an absolute bargain. How's that? Do you want to have it later? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ROAD SHOW | AUTOEVOLUTION]
