    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.

@jason meldrum I wud argue against your opinion primarily because 1. The MK II Ford GT is non affordable even if you had enough money, U basically need to adore Ford to buy it which is STUPID! 2. We all know gas cars are going out of this world in next 10-20 years time, a lot of petrol heads had a dream to own a mid engine super car and I dare you, no other brand on earth other than GM held those dreams and delivered them , now the chance is lost for Ford to deliver that dream, and when GM did it they made sure that its still advanced even from base model, 65k USD for Z51 is crazy

I enjoyed the video more when you were driving and excited. That felt more authentic than later in the video when you said something like "after speaking to other drivers I've decided it's just a Corvette, blah." I say stick with your gut feelings

What more do you want on a $60,000 Super Car : either you love it or hate it : Sure the price from Dealers will be in the 80's or 90's but who gives a shit when you compare performance to other "Over Price" piece of crap Super Cars across Hitler's Socialist Homeland called EU....

The New C-8 Corvette proves that most people refuse to buy into the Leftwing balony of global Warming-Climate Change. The Bogus politically motivated pretensions are now seen for the absurdity they have always been. God takes care of the planet, so natuarally the Earth is in good hands, as always.

Almost 500hp and you have more chassis than engine? Wow. I got a great sense in the video, of how planted, and well mannered the car was. That was really unique. I could just feel it. I mean, screw the angry bee sounds. Just lay down that torque and cruise around that track really quickly. Looked like fun. Finally, a Corvette I would love to own.

It seems like your first impression of the car was "this is awesome." Then after talking to some other people, it didn't feel quite as special because, well, it's "just a Corvette." I guess I can agree with that. For the price they're asking, a TON of these cars are going to get sold, and in that way they won't seem all that special. However, when you think about what GM recently did with the alpha Camaro in 1LE trim, this mid-engine Vette will be a world beater in every performance scenario imaginable, when you consider the price of course. This is a real game-changer. For $60k, you can get into a brand new mid-engine sports car, slap on a good set of tires, and on track you're hanging with Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche. Can't beat that with a stick.

Call it what you want but Matt nailed it when he said at the end of the day "it's still a corvette!" I think the corvette is a nice car. Good job GM but don;t kid yourselves someone looking at a Porsche will never look at this car, it's not in the same league!

Great video! Very thorough. Shades of Henry Catchpole. Lots of detail. My first car poster growing up was of the Porsche Turbo. It was always my dream car. Nothing else could dethrone it or my desire for one...until now. The new Corvette is the only car I would consider over the Porsche. Mind you, manuals matter. Having driven my ECONOMICALLY minded son’s manual ECHO on trips to the cottage over winding roads, I have to say, the “engagement “ so to speak, of a manual is...sorry, very engaging.

Maybe you should stop talking and drive the car. Your trying to talk and show off, it doesn't work. You OBVIOUSLY make a mistake but instead of owning up to it, you try to cover it up with "I tried to carry that through with the neutral peddle but it understeered". How about I was talking and going to fast and I last track of where I was on the track. That makes more since.
