It’s time for another first for Mat and the carwow team - We’ve got our hands on a Corvette! But it’s not just any Corvette… It’s the all-new Corvette C8, and it’s the first mid-engine Corvette since the original model was released back in 1953!
It was first revealed back in Summer 2019, and when you look at the specs, it’s no surprise we’ve been dying to get our hands on one! With a 6.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8, the Corvette will be able to put down 496hp and 637Nm!
Sounds pretty good, right? But that’s not all… It’ll only cost $62,000 - less than an AMG A45 S!! So what do you think - is this all-new sports car worth the ‘cheap’ price? Keep watching to find out!
Thanks to Clive Sutton for lending us the Corvette for this review - www.clivesutton.co.uk/

  • You didn't use launch control and you didn't change the traction control setting that goes hand in hand with the handling settings that you didn't change either.

  • If you freeze-frame at 4:10 the stitching is like it's been done by a drunken person and nor does it line up with the other section on the left. Again at 4:18. The stitching from one panel to another does not line up at all. It's atrocious. US cars interior build quality is sub-standard and I think particularly from Chevrolet.

  • Trouble with relying on cameras for visibility is that they break down, dont work, and then your car is dangerous on the road. Rather than designing it properly in the first place. Like Mclaren, Ferrari, Porsche does.

  • 132 000 pounds for a metal-framed pretend-supercar that isnt even as good as a mid-level Porsche or an Audi R8. THAT is the biggest problem with this car. Because over in the US, GM sell cars almost tax and duty free. And they are sold with zero profit. Over here its a different story. They get taxed like everything else. Which means you would have to be VERY interested in Corvettes to get one.

  • The sub 2.9-3.0 sec 0-60mph time was done on a professional test track with PROFESSIONAL driver's...not on some ASPHALT back road that is loaded with Shell and Sand which provides the absolute WORST traction out of any hard surfaced road (not to mention that the road you were on was COMPLETELY COVERED IN LEAVES!!!) My father runs a 4500hp Twin Turbo Drag Radial C7 bodied Vette in a class called "Radial vs. The World" (car has ran deep into the 3.60's @ over 200mph in the 1/8th mile) and he's been drag racing since 1974 when he ran a 69 Camaro Super-Stock car for Dave Lebrun/ "L & L Auto-Machine" out of Groton, CT. Anyways, my pops bought a Gunmetal Grey 2020 3LT w/the Z51 Option back in September of this year and the 1st time we brought it to Bradenton Motorsports Park in Bradenton, FL he ran a best 60ft. time of 1.61sec! and a best E.T. of 10.934 @ 125.396mph on a set of some sticky drag radials. But even on the stock tires with no tune in the car at all (since nobody can tune one cause no one has been able to gain access into the C8's ECU...it will happen soon though😁) but anyways, even on the stock tires he went a best of 0-60mph in 2.81sec & a best 1/4mi E.T. of 11.074 @ 123.528mph. So if you know how to launch the car correctly and how to extract the most performance out of the stock C8, you can definitely run the advertised 0-60 times (or faster) and can definitely run the advertised E.T. But the real fun has been taking the car to Sebring and road racing the s**t out of it!! Thats what this car was built for...obviously considering they locked up the Driver's & Constructor's GT LEMANS Championship in their first year of competing with the car!! Ford pulled the backing IMMEDIATELY after Cheverolet announced they were entering the C8R into competition in 2020 😂...but then again Ford couldn't even beat the front engine vettes considering Corvette Racing has the most wins, Driver's titles, and Constructor's titles in all of IMSA history! Anyway that's all i guess...lol #BowTieTiLLiDie

  • 1) the hood has a release from outside 2) you were in breakin period and the 0-60 includes a 1 foot rollout 3) don't like the way breaks fell just change it. there are brake pedal feel settings in the infotainment system since it is a brake by wire system

  • American cars don’t corner well? Hahaha... I don’t even like corvettes... but the last c7 grandsport corvette had among the highest skidpad numbers motortrend ever recorded. And the Dodge Viper ACR and Z06 are still among the highest lap times they’ve ever recorded at Laguna seca. And yes the 911 is an amazing machine as well. For what it’s worth, this American spent his money on a British car anyhow,.. an F-Type R. Handles worse than all the aforementioned but theater is a worthy trade off since we typically drive on streets and not racetracks
