Winner of Motortrend’s 2020 Car of the Year Award, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 has been compared to exotic sports cars like the Ferrari 488 Spider, Lamborghini Huracan, and McLaren 720S by many car aficionados. It’s available for only a fraction of the price with a base price of $60,000, making it one of the most affordable sports cars of its kind. Don’t let the affordable price fool you, the C8 is dripping with luxury and excitement.
This exhilarating new Corvette can go 0-60mph in less than 3 seconds, performing faster than any Stingray before! Safety is also an outstanding aspect of the C8. The brakes are world-class, taking 97 feet to brake from 60 mph. professionals say that delivers “phenomenal performance” on the city roads and freeways.
The 6.2-liter LT2 V8 engine is visible through the rear hatch window which adds another level of excitement and attractiveness to the body. The door handles and hatch and hood releases have been designed to be hidden, enhancing the sleek appearance and improving the aerodynamics of the vehicle. There are also several upgrade packages that customers who wish to add more luxury to an already luxurious vehicle can purchase.
The engineers of this masterpiece really had the driver in mind when they designed this sports car. The mid-engine allows for the driver to be farther forward in the vehicle, creating a race car view. Inspired by the F-22 and F-35 jet fighters, the interior features a tablet and row of buttons. The seats have a very sporty look and also provide ample comfort and support for the driver.

The first of the C8 generation and one that will be memorable with an 8-inch display, available with a front-lift feature that protects the C8 lip, and available with a performance data recorder.
The C8 Stingray has the Mulan leather and not the Mulan from Disney, we are talking premium leather made of high-quality materials. These GT1 are the stock seats on the 1LT and 2LT trims meant more for the city than country roads. The GT2 seats are a step up with genuine Napa leather, they really look like something out of an alien movie in a UFO spacecraft. The final option of Competition Sport seats would be fantastic on the Spokane County Raceway. We love this look and have heard great feedback on the incredible design of the C8 Stingray interior.
