Featuring a mid-engine layout for the first time, the new Corvette Stingray has been revealed and it’s fast, very fast…
With the evacuation of General Motors and Chevrolet from South Africa in 2017, we won’t see the new Corvette Stingray on local roads but that doesn’t mean we can’t ogle from afar.
For the first time ever, a mid-engine layout has been adopted and is fitted with a next-generation LT2 6.2-litre V8 engine that produces 365 kW and 637 Nm of torque and is paired an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission that directs those numbers to the rear wheels. Power can be bumped up to 369 kW worth a Z51 Performance Package which will ensure a zero to 100 kph sprint time of under 3 seconds.
Performance aside, another talking point of this new Corvette Stingray is its interior. The interior layout is completely focussed around the driver. A sporty digital instrument cluster is fitted and the infotainment system is angled towards the driver. The centre console encapsulates the driver and take note of the long strip of buttons running through the centre console.
