    We got a first look at the new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, aka the C8. The 'Vette has always had supercar aspirations. Now, it's a legitimate threat.

    Moving the engine rearward positions the driver much closer to the nose and shifts the car's center of gravity directly next to the driver's hip.
    The new LT2 engine is a 6.2-liter V8 making 495 hp and 470 lb-ft. The bigger change is what it's connected to -- an eight-speed, dual-clutch transmission from Tremec. When it comes to performance there's no doubt DCTs are quicker. How quick? The new C8 will have a 0-60 mph time of less than 3 seconds.
    We suspect some traditional Corvette buyers will struggle to get their heads around this new mid-engined layout, but anyone with an eye towards performance should be properly salivating right now.

      We've finally seen the C8 Corvette in person but what do you think of the looks now it's mid-engined?

      1. Phill M156

        @cosio m that's one hell of a nut. Becareful, it could rip the other right off the stump.

      2. Phill M156

        Looks like something from Maranello.

      3. Trey Chandler

        It’s not a Corvette (it’s a secret Ford GT)

      4. Joe

        Bad ass..

      5. Kevin Magill

        If it had circular tail lights it would look like a new Ferrari....they did an amazing job

      Dealer mark ups are insane and should be illegal. Could Chevy do anything about this? For sure the amount of cars sold will be significantly less because of the mark ups . People aren't stupid, and would rather buy a C8 from another city if they have to from a more honest dealership if they have to. I've heard some mark ups as high as $50,000.00 😐🙄 I understand you wanting to make maximum profit on these cars , but you have to be a real low life blood sucker to mark up prices this high and still look customers in the face with zero shame . Only a dummy would just give their money away like that on a car that's going to be mass produced, and will depreciate considerably.

      *Slaps roof* Yells at chevy employee Hey boy! BOY!!! Where's my turbo. . . I have some Ferrari's and Pagani's to slay and I shall require all Zeeee boost to give them a nice thrashing These things alongside all the ls mods are gonna be American goddamn Godzillas Headers, cam, big ass turbo, straight piped, patriotism intensifies

    4. ThePandaBeat

      It looks fantastic... what an upgrade!

    5. Elon Musk

      Pontiac Fiero with a body kit

    6. RH814

      Absolutely gorgeous!!!!!!

    7. cptnsolo77

      Shit !!!! .....the rear looks 100% cleaner without that gaudy wing. Without it....seems like you can appreciate what the designers were going for without that stupid add on. Looks like a totally different car. This cars styling is SLOWLY creeping on me. I try not to get too exited about new cars because what look new and exiting....USUALLY looks dated after a couple of years....so lets see.....

      Sweet honey barbecue

    9. xxxpensive

      Lets hope it can smoke a demon or the civic nsx🤣🤣🤣

    10. iSiP Toronto

      Looks like a better camaro

    11. Smooth Operator

      Man,with so many people on different channels in the comment section proclaiming to buy one soon there will be plenty of these on the streets.I might probably get a used one 5 years from now for $20k thereabouts? 🤔

    12. antonio volpe

      tesla next generation roadster please

    13. totalmikie

      Too much of a snub nose. Chevy's insistance on having golf club storage in the rear has resulted in the cabin being pitched a little too far forward. Otherwise, not too bad. The side vents need to be dialed back, and the rear of the car needs some design streamlining.

    14. silver wizard

      It took 50 yrs to make a decent Car! Chevy Slakers!

    15. King Dumbass

      If it's not called the c8 zora i'll burn the entier chevy headquarters and back slap the ceo across the face

    16. Sauce boii217

      Lowkey live🔥

    17. lethaldonkey

      Idk I see a lot of the F35 and the Resemblance is minimal lol. I still like it tho.

    18. GTRMclaren722

      Its missing the long nose, the main look of a corvette

    19. vomErsten

      I think it's an excellent engineering achievement at an astonishing entry price accomplished at the cost of lousy design and a soul.

    20. Micaiah LaCross

      Looks like a American mclaren

    21. Josiel palomo

      Ferrari?

      That color.... HOLY SMOKES!!! That's the first one I've seen without the performance package also. I like it.

    25. Jayrod 140

      Looks like a copy of a Mclaren tho

    26. aker coyote

      I want that ❤

    27. Lobster Johnson

      It's more desirable than a new NSX because NA V8 for 60k

    28. Tremain Smith

      I 👀 this model 4 year's ago on future sport car's nothing important 2 me at all slow ass plastic death machine

    29. Open Eye

      Spoiler it’s $60k and you can still feel every bump on the road just like all the corvettes before it. 😋

    30. David Vartanian

      I’m 6’3 I wonder if I could fit in that car 🤔

    31. Creole Cajun

      The rear end lools much better Wingless. Overall an amazing car!

    32. Yusuf Wadud

      Looks like a Ferrari

    33. deno zed

      That color is so good. Omfg chevy take my money!

    34. Larry Wayne

      *starting price under 60K !!! this car gonna make the lower & middle class feel rich, as if they are in a real Ferrari or McLaren lol* 😂

    35. Larry Wayne

      get ready to see *EVERYBODY* & they moma in one of these!!! especially when it's only 60K!!! I applaud you Chevy but this sports car gonna get really annoying really fast this upcoming 2020 year.

    36. Justin Mallaiz

      Wow.... finally, some proper design and attention for the corvette .. good job GM..

    37. dalex7777

      @Roadshow Hey Tim, great to see you! A long time from your Engadget days. I love the example of the Corvette in your video, no spoiler and a nice practical color.

    38. MrJonnydanger

      It's a less capable Acura NSX 🤷

    39. videohboy

      Don't like the rear end or interior.

    40. Wei Tsung Soo

      Trying very hard to be an F8 wannabe... I can see F8 influence throughout. Sadly it is still a Chevrolet. Why not just "be yourself" and stick to traditional corvette design.

    41. Chris Daniel

      Looks ugly

    42. A B

      2 words. F porsche

    43. Dreamcatcher_11_

      A cheap Ferrari!!!! Looooove it!!! Loooks stunning! I want it!!!!

    44. John Allen

      ****1st Corvette available in right hand drive for less than $60k**** Regardless of their substantial price advantage, the Americans are clearly building the best Sports Cars in the World. Clearly, it's time to divest in a couple of Italian Companies, because their stock prices are sure to dip. Good Job Yanks!!!

    45. LWRC

      Porsche has always set the benchmark when it come to build quality and certainly performance. Let's see if Chevy can even come close to that at this price point. Otherwise, it will just be another cheap alternative for the buyers until they can afford a real super car. Remember, Chevy never delivered a high quality build in any of their vehicles ever!

    46. Charles Segovia

      OMG nice

    47. Mr_Pauls

      Please yell at GM to fix the rear end and center console for the love of god

    48. Philip Crawford

      This is next level. Ferrari should be very scared.

    49. Richard

      The new Corvette looks like what the giant bomb of the NSX reboot should’ve been. Having worked on Chevy Malibu’s, I absolutely have no respect for this brand, but this corvette does look pretty good. NGL. I hope it makes the owners happy

    50. vette 63

      Is GM going to make a RHD for us Aussies

      1. vomErsten

        Yes, and import to Aus has already been confirmed by Holden.

    51. cain

      This looks badass. Has a bit of an R8-vibe to it.

    52. Mason Royer

      Wow idk how it 60k it looks like 200k

    53. Erik Hadinger

      A brand new 1 ton Chevy Diesel cost $80,000 basically what makes you think this new C8 is going to be 60,000? At that price I would rather have Ford's new GT350 more horsepower and probably just as fast around the track. Just look at how tiny the tires are on the C8 I doubt it will be able to hold the track that well compared to the Ford GT or other mid-engine sports cars

    54. Andrew Rolston

      Looks like an nsx

    55. popindosin228

      Nice Ferrari

    56. AAWAism A

      Looks like a hybrid of a Ferrari and a Mclaren.

    57. 崔軼翰

      But now you can't touch the passenger

    58. NileshR12

      This car almost looks like a McLaren now!! It looks a lot more exotic than before & it will make everyone ask what car is that until they read that it's a Corvette! Which is a really good move!

    59. D payne

      Oooo look anotha beast car in neva gon afford

    60. Bargainteers

      *Dodge Hellcats exits chatroom*

    61. NS5009

      at least no retro styling

    62. Dragon RA Open

      Back of car look. Like bmw 8 xD

    63. K.witsch

      Looks better then on the concept images, but still not a huge fan. The "upper cheeks" when looking from the front are to wide and sharp and the rear seems a little off on this type of ferrari / mclaren kind of car. What I like the most are the side intakes and how they connect to the back end.

    64. Jessica

      soooo sexyy

    65. Archie Cunningham

      Retro style would be better

    66. mrpmj00

      A C8 at $60k is relatively cheap enough that I'm keeping my C7 manual transmission for 3 pedal engagement fun when I get a C8. Unlike other cars that I've owned in that I normally tradein to lower the cost of the new car.

    67. G Howard

      A giant leap for an already great sports car. GlennFHoward

    68. dragonoid510

      Vette? Looks like a rari

    69. AudioGMan

      GM had to use Porsche and Ferrari as a benchmark. Why couldn’t they design their own car without studying someone else’s? 👎

    70. justinschuyler

      1:24 hearing your ring tap against the paint sent shivers down my spine 😬
