Let’s Get Loud: Corvette C8 Allows You To Rev High At Stoplight

The Latest: New mid-engine Corvette starts under $60,000 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Preview

That said, Chevrolet has not revealed the top-speed and how much the new Corvette weighs.

Heck, the mid-engined Corvette even looks like a steal when compared to what is one of the best performance bargains now on the market, namely the C5 Corvette Z06 - you'll have to pay around $25,000 for a good example of the 405 hp toy, which comes from the late 1990s.

Chevrolet sources have confirmed the powertrain has been created to allow for electrification, with insiders suggesting mild hybrid, plug-in hybrid and, while less likely, full electric versions were being considered.

Note: Image above is a flipped version of an original left-hand-drive Corvette C8 official photo.

Pressed on whether a fully electric Corvette was under consideration, Reuss said: "We'll see". They also changed its looks so it resembles European mid-engine race cars. Chevrolet has broken the tradition this time by placing the 6.2 litre V8 motor behind the driver. That means, finally, you can stop frantically typing "2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 mid-engine" in your search engine. Instead, the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission will have to satisfy owners. No manual transmission will be offered.

McIlroy can not escape Open Championship spotlight at Portrush
Despite just two top 10s in 13 Open appearances and the imminent arrival of his 40th birthday, the Dunluce is his 15th club. The quest for the Claret Jug was upon them. "I'm sort of pushing up towards the three mark at this point this year".

Detailed pricing information will be available closer to launch. But Reuss told CNN Business that it was important that the new Corvette remain accessible to the same customers who could afford the current one.

This idea of putting the engine behind the driver in a road vehicle was pioneered in the Lamborghini Miura in 1966.

A move to mid-engine has also required Chevrolet to completely rethink how the Corvette rides and handles.

In a new report from Motor Authority, the Corvette features a system that allows drivers to quickly and easily engage neutral. That engine will be linked to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and will power the Z-51 track version of the vehicle from a standing start to 60 miles per hour in less than 3 seconds, according to Corvette executive chief engineer Tadge Juechter. The front trunk can fit an airline carry-on bag and a laptop bag, according to GM.

The Corvette plant in Bowling Green will begin producing the 2020 Corvette later this year.
