Drive a Corvette C8 On a Racetrack!
Some thought they would never do it. But they did. After 66 years since the first model, Chevrolet moved the engine and transmission in the venerable Corvette from the front to a mid-engine layout. The result is a Corvette C8 that is more driving-focused than ever before. read more >
With a 495-horsepower V8 and 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with short ratios that takes the thundering V8-powered Corvette C8 to 60 MPH from a standing start in just 2.8 seconds. That’s not only due to the power, but also thanks to better grip provided by the weight shifting backward allowing the tires to really bite into the asphalt. The same goes for exiting the corners under power.
Cornering is yet another benefit of the mid-engine configuration where a hint of understeer on entry yields to a carving arc through the apex. It’s all about bringing the polar inertia the center of the car where the weight is evenly distributed to all four wheels. Chevrolet has now produced a Corvette that wants to turn instead of one that merely has to turn, which makes it ideal to experience at Exotics Racing starting at $295 for five laps.less >

Corvette C8 is truly revolutionary. With its 6.2-liter LT2 V8 engine and 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox now tucked in behind the driver, the Corvette C8 also has a completely new aluminum frame and composite body panels. As a result of all this the Corvette C8 goes a full second faster than the Corvette C7 Stingray to 60 MPH from a standing start in a blistering 2.8 seconds. Why? 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque is one reason.
Tips From A Pro
"The Corvette C8 is unlike any other Corvette you may have driven before. Where previous Corvettes have been something of a handful, requiring some muscle to drive, the Corvette C8 is a precise driver’s tool. To get the most from it, focus on the ideal line, make precise inputs on the wheels and pedals and keep your eyes up because the next corner will come quickly."
