Interestingly ABSC had the same 0-100kph time, without the rollout, as Motor Trend and Car and Driver. The C8 can do 60 in 2.6 with a rollout. https://www.corvetteblogger.com/2020/04/10/video-the-quickest-stock-2020-corvette-on-youtube-goes-0-60-mph-in-2-67-seconds/

just make sure you add the duct tape option before picking up the gate pass and leave the showroom lot lol

dante  2w ago @FastestLaps

only when it gets floored, you get to hear that cheap rusty v8 scream and notice its closer to a muscle car sound rather than an italian exotic

 


User avatar

FastestLaps  2w ago @dante

In general, cross plane crank engines sound better than flat crank (subject to individual taste), due to the "interleaved" firing order and piston movement. But vast majority of V engines are cross plane and all the cheap V8s too. So naturally the flat crank sound seems more exotic as it is rare and associated with expensive European supercars.

Supra is a category lower than the other two, so why are they comparing them?


User avatar

There is a problem with the Corvette or the 992 has been renovated.
For stock, the Corvette is faster than the 992 at the quarter mile.

Maybe in individual runs in different conditions, it is. But here they are in the same conditions.


User avatar

Motortrend also was the same conditions but The linear acceleration is higher for c8 Is Motortrend lying?

Well, it makes sense for an american company to try a little bit harder for the american car. From the throttle house video, it wasn't even close.

we know Porsche turbo cars have more power than stated, while the corvette is likely as stated. Power wise they should be similar but the vette has less traction and is heavier


User avatar

sans  2w ago @Cocobe

The wheel horsepower is likely to be similar.
But even taking that into account, the vette saw it up to 2.6 seconds and the quarter mile record is obviously faster.
Vette is More likely to manipulate the mod less.

Also, the 992 couldn't find much of the quarter mile video on YouTube.

99.000€ for a Corvette? C'mon...


User avatar

David Olson  3w ago

The only two things making this C8 quicker than the C7 is engine weight over rear tires and the double clutch trans...power to weight ratio is almost identical.
Not a fan of the look inside and out. I will be keeping my 7sp manual, C7 Z51 maglev, triple black, LT1 lightest weight (3375) and changed out front bumper to C06 to get rid of chrome strip. Quick, fast and fun.

Just as I expected - price in EU is close to 100 grand. Obviously the initial claims of 50k usd price are total bull***t.

As much as I appreciate the updates of the motoGP and the laptime of the c6 Grandsport, let's not forget to upload the Sachsenring lap of the c8, it's been almost a week!
Ps: sorry if I came off as obnoxious, I hate to be that kind of guy

I was so surprised by how every tester said that the C8 was super under-steer prone. That's disappointing.

where are the updates ?????????

if it were that shit vw-911, you'd see an update before the magazines would land on the grocery store shelf.

Nurburgring laptime of 7.29.9s, go check it out, it's official.
There is also the Grattan Laptime (1.26.1), although the test didn't seem very reliable (the laptimes were pretty slow).
Btw I hate that this car is not being tested! I get it's partially due to Coronavirus, but it's unacceptable that we only have 5 laptimes! This car needs to be tested for real, on a track ! I am so tired of dragraces on YouTube, this car deserves better

@FastestLaps, check out this beast of an engine.

It’s called the Mercury Racing SB4, from the boat engine manufacturer, however it’s made for automotive applications. It’s based off a Chevrolet LS7 7.0L V8 but it’s got new DOHC 32v heads with more aggressive cams, so it now produces 750 horsepower and 570 LB-FT. It’s also got a n 8,000 RPM redline, but it produces torque at lower speeds. Someone should swap this motor in a C8 Corvette.

So what do you need to go 205 mph in a C8 Stingray? Exhaust, 135hp shot of nitrous and get rid of that rear spoiler for a hairy ride lol

Per the automaker, the street-spec C8 Corvette will achieve 15 miles per gallon in the city and 27 miles per gallon on the highway. It will also boast more engine potency than the C7 model had.
