Hello all.
I have the acceleration figures for the Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 3LT that Autocar tested in the 22nd June 2022 magazine. Okay - these figures aren't all that great. But here they are anyway in miles per hour.

0-30: 1.8.
0-40: 2.4.
0-50: 3.1.
0-60: 3.9.
0-70: 5.0
0-80: 6.2.
0-90: 7.5.
0-100: 9.1.
0-110: 10.9.
0-120: 13.2.
0-130: 15.9.
0-140: 19.2.
0-150: 23.4.

So nowhere near as quick as a Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe.

Top speed: 184 mph.

I have say I greatly admire the shape of the C8 Corvette.
Looks stunning in red and appears to have a targa roof.
And it's also good to see it's now available in Right Hand Drive.
It's mid engined and still has a V8.
There is only one dealer though - in Surrey.
Anyway the car handles well and has reasonably comfortable suspension.
Good car!

Safe driving from Flt 158

It doesn't matter man! Autocar as you know are (usually) full fuel tank plus passenger. To 186MPH that's easily a 1 second difference!

Thank You.

Essentially a poor man's Chiron (actually, maybe Aventador). Big displacement, mid-engine, highest top speed for less than $100k (discounting those stupid muscle cars), and a high-quality grand tourer

Those results look a bit off; this car cannot be doing 80-100kph in JUST half a second, and judging by the 0-50 and 0-100 results that ¼mile time should be way better than 11.7s; either they tested the ¼mile separately or they left the timer on for a bit longer.

Using my math, the 0-80 time of 2.6 and the 0-130 time of 5.6 compute to a range of 3.6 to 3.8 seconds for 0-100. That 3.1 was clearly a typo, or it could be that they performed that time separately from the other results to achieve the best sprint possible out of this car (and even then, with PJ1 TrackBite glue and/or a 1-foot rollout).

The reason why a Carrera S or GTS or GT3 can achieve this 3.1 time is because it is typical of Porsche to underestimate power ratings because their small engines comply with European emission standards much easier than these American-built motors.

For those wondering why I put Switzerland as the country of origin (I did that on purpose), it's because Cadillac Europe (the exporter, and sometimes importer, of GM cars) is headquartered in Switzerland.

Basically Chevrolet said 468 bhp for those with the standard exhaust and 475 bhp for those with the performance exhaust.
