What's RWD, naturally aspirated, hits 60 mph in 3.0 seconds, and only costs $60,000? The new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette packs incredible performance into a sports car price tag. The new Corvette moves the 6.2L V8 engine behind the driver, altering the weight distribution and allowing for staggering 0-60 times. With the $5,000 optional Z51 package, the car hits 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, as fast as the previous generation ZR1 Corvette!
The all new C8 Corvette sends torque through an 8-speed dual clutch transmission, which can shift in less than a tenth of a second (100 milliseconds). There's an electronic limited slip differential, sticky 305 mm wide Michelin tires, and a host of interior upgrades. Check out the review for driving impressions of America's latest supercar killer.

    *Track Day Update!* Spent today out on the track - this thing is an AutoX killer and feels right at home on the track as well. It's fast; I was on a track I'd never driven, and the experience wasn't terrifying. It's approachable and quick, which is a tough combination to execute. Part of this means the handling characteristics cater to who you're selling to (turns out they're not all race car drivers). There's adjustability in the suspension, but out of the factory it has a touch of understeer which you'll notice if you push it *hard.* Phenomenal grip, good rotation, and a little bit of push (which again, I believe with some quick adjustments to the suspension for a track day, you could tune how you'd please). For me, the fit is a little tight (I'm 6'1"). Steering wheel all the way up, seat all the way down, knees very close to the wheel, occasionally touches. I'm also not sold on the steering wheel, I think I'd like a circle a bit more, but the ratio is fine for track use, and tight corners. Also learned some cool tidbits I'll likely be sharing on Instagram after some chats with engineering if you're interested! instagram.com/engineeringexplained/

    How about doing video about this car's engines variable valve timing? I am perfectly aware it's not as functional or sophisticated than Hyundais CVVD or BMW's ValveTronic, but it's interesting as it's on pushrod OHV engine with 2 valves per cylinder.

    I've never really been a Corvette guy other than the very early "blue flame" 'vettes, but, I find the 2020 'vette appealing. I love my 2016 S660, not alot of power but a tiny fun little car! It really is a "baby" NSX for a little less than a new base model Honda Fit.

    My order for a 2020 C8 may become an order for a 2021. I did not order the Z5 package because it rains a lot here, and I know that the C8 will be a hydroplaning beast, even with stock tires. However, the 2021s will allow the magnetic ride suspension to be ordered by itself. Since I plan to use mine as a daily driver, rarely on the track, how interested should I be in the magnetic ride suspension? Thanks!

    Does a car really need to gain performance with every new generation? I'm sure the ZR1 will be faster but does the base model need to be faster? Look at how the MX-5 prioritises drivability! This thing looks phenomenal

    That's the first time I've seen those Michelin's. I have the summer Pilot Sport 4S on my vehicle and have nothing but the best to say about them. If you want the best tire Michelin is the way to go. Pirelli and other manufacturers have absolutely nothing on them when it comes to constant testing and improvement.

    0-60 in 3 sec is impressive but the dodge has there own version of straight line speed for the price... the difference maker is the ability for this car to handle and the interior, both of those are tiers above the demon. Looks are also better but that’s subject to whoever you are. The more you dig into this car the more impressive it is.

    I grew up on a manual trans and drove one for over 30 years from basic low perf stockers to modified turbo backed clutches. Now I drove a dual clutch Audi and I don't miss the manual at all. Sure, if I went to a road corse I'd miss it, but for a daily driver, DSG all the way. Damn I love the new Vette! I wish it had some better fit and finish. Look at the trim at the base of the drivers side windshield pillar where the door meets the dash. The two pieces aren't even close. (15:58 shows it well) That would drive me crazy.

    Great review. That's a dream car. Mega kudos to Chevy for their work on this. Jay Leno also did a review, with the chief designer of it. Also worth watching to hear their engineer talk about it -- very insightful. But this here is the better road test by far, and provides additional insights. Surprised it has a weight ratio of 60-40. I've always heard the goal is to be 50-50 for optimal performance.

    At 6:53, do you know if that's a bronze-coloured coating on the inner CV joints (among other things,) or if they've simply tempered the metal at 500ºF or so? Edit: or perhaps they just made it bronze to make the render look more colourful, since the inner CV attachments are a silver colour in the picture of the gearbox shown later...

    You need to research port velocities because 2 valve usually have a higher velocity at lower rpm, ie, makes more torque down low so is more drive-able. 4 valves engines usually have too much valve area so have lower velocity, hence they are more rev-y before they produce power. Go drive a Ferrari and you will see the difference.
