Motor Trend really wanted to see if the 2020 Chevy Corvette C8 Stingray could hold up to the supercars of today, and let’s just say that the vehicle did not disappoint. Its naturally aspirated 6.2L V8, mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, churns out 495 hp and 470 lb⋅ft of torque when equipped with the optional Z51 performance package, which adds a sport exhaust system, enabling it to accelerate to 60 mph in just 2.8-seconds. Read more for the video and additional information.
Aside from the sport exhaust system, the Z51 package also adds a performance-tuned adjustable suspension setup with threaded spring seats for further setup customization, as well as an electronic limited-slip differential. Or, if nothing but the best will do, the top-of-the-line FE4 trim level includes the fourth generation of GM’s magnetic ride adaptive suspension system.
