Chevrolet Corvette C8
The 2021+ Corvette C8 is one of the most controversial cars of our era. It’s the long-awaited eighth-generation model and the freshest Corvette ever. That’s not only for its design but for a host of technical solutions, features, and advancements. First of all, the C8 is a mid-engined sports car that some consider sacrilegious. The Corvette was a front-engined sports car since 1953. Still, GM’s engineers realized that they needed to switch the position of the engine if they wanted to keep Corvette competitive and give it the handling it deserved (via Chevrolet).
Apart from the all-new chassis and design, the C8 kept the small block V8 engine in the form of a modern LT2 6.2-liter V8 with 490 HP. This engine comes only with automatic transmission, which is another controversy, but the results are astonishing. The stock C8 can accelerate to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and top 200 mph. The customers recognized how historically significant this model is and the C8 is a hot commodity at the moment. And the best thing is its base price of less than $70k, which makes it very affordable.
