    This video was shot for the Road & Track Performance Car of the Year 2019 group test at Thunderhill Raceway West. Subscribe to R&T and keep print journalism alive! www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars/first-drives/a29471987/2020-corvette-c8-first-drive-test/
    The C8 Corvette is here! Mid-engined, dual-clutched, fighter-plane-meets-Camaro styled, and far cheaper than Porsche 911's and the Acura NSX. With a 495 HP naturally-aspirated LT2 V8, double-wishbone suspension with mag ride, and the sport exhaust, this 3LT/Z51 car is the top of the initial C8 food chain, and makes us incredibly excited for future iterations, though less so for the base model.
    GM provided the vehicle, a LOT of tires, and mobile support at the track for this test.

*correction* I accidentally said 369 instead of 469 for torque. My apologies, I was a bit rushed and didn’t catch myself.

@Digital Source My point is, unlike foolish Ford, GM gave the average man an opportunity to buy a mid engine V8 machine , with Ford, the Ford GT is limited production and costs 3x-4x more than a Vette and yet is slower around some tracks than even a C7 ZR1 and sounds like shit and failed to win Le Mans 3 times like its predecessor did back in 60s , so in my mind the Ford GT MK II is a failure however one may look at it, because it failed to give customers the soul of the 66-69 Ford GT the V8, and failed to win races and couldnt reach customers who really wanted a mid engine Ford machine

@Ponygt 662 I would not put too much into your statement about the Ford GT Mustang it is still a V-8 5.0l or the new GT500 since the 2020/2021 first off the line went for 1.1 MILLION. Yes I said million, (Ford should be super happy). I also noticed that the Corvette followers are upset that the new C8 Zo6 will cost more than 100K. I did not buy my C6 zo6 new but the window sticker was in the center console when I bought it 3 years ago. The sticker price was 98527.99,(from 2008) that is from 12 years ago so yes the new Zo6 Corvette will most likely cost more than 100K. I would guess 115K to 135K and even more for the ZR1. My advise to everybody is buy a used Corvette for your first. I purchased a 2008 zo6 back in 2016 for 38K, it only had 22K miles on it, not even broke in. It beats paying 90-125K for a new one. My next Corvette will be new, well maybe!!!

I ma at the mid video, and I have heard Randy and others to complain of a little under-steer until they gave 3 degree camber, so I can see camber plates aftermarket done quickly for this car, and then you just take 15 min to do a weekend or canyon camber, and then you return it to 1 degree for the daily-weekly driving, even with 1 degree front camber it will be great and what if you eat a little bit of the tires internal half earlier. You can offer some tires if you own this car. They can still make adjustments, as you said.

First, last I saw all the switches in a 911 turbo S are plastic and many are blank...on a $235,000 car. Second, McLaren just recalled the Sienna, 720S and GT because they can catch on fire. Matt you need to keep in mind full loaded this car will sell for $85K. I for one am okay with a little plastic in the foot well for that price.

Amazing car. I have 4 Corvettes which are mostly old school. My favorite is my 1972 Stingray in which I've invested well over 40 grand into the engine alone. Produces 580hp with same for torque. A total mind trip to drive, but this next gen will be my new favorite when it gets delivered.

Goddamn... We STILL can’t get it right, even after we bailed their ass out of the quicksand? Combustion only?! Are you fucking kidding me?! Where the fuck is an all electric or at least a fucking hybrid? Look at the success of the others! Combustion only?..Are you fucking kidding me?! Combustion only is soooooooooooooooooooooooo goddamn yesterday. You would think after seeing a fucking Tesla SUV walk a fucking Aventador that that would make people scratch their heads in the design department and think that maybe they’re on to something. Waiting for this shit is like waiting in line on Black Friday for the new iMac computer only to finally rush in and see a goddamn computer with a CRT screen. Get with the fucking program GM!! LEAD for once like Americans are supposed to... DON’T FOLLOW!! Or walk the fuck home!! So sick of not leading. D- on the NSX body design assholes, and a big mother fucking “F” (as in Fuck You) on the drivetrain. Overall? You failed mother fuckers!! Second rate shit!! For once! Get it right!..... Or go the fuck home. Americans lead... that don’t follow...... Fucking Rookies. I’m sure that the fuckers that design the C8 are the same peach-fuzz pansies that think mainstream music is soulful and Justin Bieber is cool.

It’s a shame that the Ford GT pulled the plug just now, when they have another mid engine sport car to fight out in the races. It would be a blast to watch a C8 Z06 and the Ford GT battle at the tracks.

Oh my God! 0-60 is not the only metric my dear! Fact is that the brandnew C8 Stingray with 500 HP was slower on the Nurburgring than the older C7 Grand Sport with only 460 HP! A mid-engine car has much more problems in the curves than a front-engine car with a 50:50 weight distribution. A btw, who won the 24 hours race in Daytona 2020 in the GTLM class? A front-engine car (BMW)! Cool down with your mid-engine Corvette hype, the previous ones were better (and more beautiful ...).

According to Corvette chief engineer, Tadge Juechter, "Everything you see and touch is either leather or metal". That means everything you touch is soft touch, then how the f*#k did you find hard touch plastics, ugly fat moron ? And it's a pre-production model, you can't simply comment on the interior quality before it starts arriving at the dealerships.

While I'm happy that Chevy finally decided to go the mid engine route and I love the look, I can't help but think that the 2020 Corvette looks like a Ferrari. The front engine Corvette was unmistakable in its appearance, and I wish that the designers carried that uniqueness into this model.
