Doesn't seem too crazy. A bit of odd swerving, but nothing too crazy.
Def trying to heat tires up in parts of the video. At least from the looks of it
No he was showing off, those tires were plenty hot already, mostly a teenager who just stole the car, it might have been Elmo!
no I wasn't driving it
Teenagers don't know Elmo these days.
no teenagers here to worry about except Elmo's buddies, luckily they are bothering some one else most of the time. corvettes are just for rich do nothings.
The entry-level Chevrolet C8 Corvette is set to be powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine known as the ‘LT2’.
GM Authority, citing sources familiar with Chevrolet’s future product plans, has provided details about this powertrain.
It is reported that the LT2 is largely the same as the LT1 6.2-liter V8 found in the existing C7 Corvette Stingray and Grand Sport models. Apparently, Chevrolet has updated the engine’s active fuel management system and made various valving improvements to refine the engine. It is expected to produce between 480 hp and 500 hp, giving it a slight improvement over the 460 hp it offers up in the C7 Stingray Z51 and C7 Grand Sport. Torque is also expected to rise from 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) to around 480 lb-ft (650 Nm).
Chevrolet has also modified the 6.2-liter V8 engine to ensure it fits in between the supercar’s axles as opposed to being mounted up front like the C7. The engine will be coupled exclusively to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Powertrain details about future derivatives of the C8 Corvette remain up in the air but we anticipate a handful of different powertrains being offered, including a twin-turbo V8, and a twin-turbo V8 hybrid with upwards of 1000 hp.

2020 Corvette C8 Will Debut As A Stingray & Here Are The New Logos
more testing at the ring
press photos leaked before the unveiling
if you want to watch the live show -
I like the direction the new Corvette is going in. Is it just me or does the production model seem less chunky than the pre production version? I'm more interested in how they will price it...
They just ended the presentation. It said they will start pricing at under 60k. Sub 3 seconds 0-60 in testing.
Doesn't even look like a Corvette....
