The new C8 presents the perfect balance between space-age technology and the famous legacy of its ancestors. It has an insanely capable, lightweight chassis, special suspension and comes filled with incredible technology. Also, it retains a delicious and gloriously-sounding small-block V8 which delivers power and torque all through the rev range.
But, let the numbers do the talking, and C8 Vette equipped with a highly desirable Z51 Performance package delivers 495 hp through fantastic 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 0 to 60 mph is achievable in just 2.8 seconds which is even quicker than some European competitors. With 184 mph top speed, it is fast enough to post insane lap times, and with ideal weight distribution, torque V8 and world-class brakes, it is a blast to drive on the track.
