As for the engine of the Corvette C8 Stingray, it is a small 6.2-liter LT2 naturally aspirated V8 engine specially developed by Chevrolet for it. The current small-displacement V8 turbo engine is the main force, which can retain a large displacement. The configuration of the V8 engine fully demonstrates the domineering power of the American supercar. Its maximum horsepower is 495hp and its maximum torque is 64.95kgm. Compared with European supercars with 600 and 700hp, it may be a little inferior. Under the weight of the car, the 0-60mph (0-96km/h) acceleration takes only 2.9 seconds, and the top speed is as high as 312km/h. The beautiful data is not inferior to the Continental supercar.

The engine of the Corvette C8 Stingray is a 6.2-liter LT2 naturally aspirated V8 engine with a maximum horsepower of 495hp and a maximum torque of 64.95kgm. The 0-60mph (0-96km/h) acceleration takes only 2.9 seconds, and the top speed is as high as 312km/ h, the beautiful data is not inferior to the Continental 10 million supercar.
This engine is also equipped with a dry oil sump for the first time, with three oil pumps ensuring optimal lubrication in extreme cornering or downhill conditions, and also lowering the engine's center of gravity, even at lateral accelerations of up to 1 G. It also provides optimum lubrication performance and ensures excellent power output.

In the chassis part, the Corvette C8 Stingray adopts a newly designed front and rear double A-arm suspension structure, and is equipped with a single-tube shock absorber with a competitive lightweight orientation as standard. This car has excellent handling performance. This car was tested on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany and ran the fastest lap of 7 minutes and 29 seconds, which is faster than Porsche 992 Carrera S, 991 GT3 and Audi R8. V10 Plus, Ferrari F12 and other tens of millions of supercars are even faster. In addition, this engine is also equipped with a dry oil sump for the first time, with three oil pumps to ensure the best lubrication in extreme cornering or downhill conditions, and also lowers the engine's center of gravity (the crankshaft center position is lower than the previous front The engine is lowered by 2.5 cm), so the lateral performance has been greatly improved, even at lateral accelerations up to 1 G, it can provide the best lubrication efficiency and ensure excellent power output.

The author also took advantage of this contact to have a short test drive of the Corvette C8 Stingray. When I got into the car, I first found that although the sitting position is lower than that of a performance RV, it is not as good as a supercar-like flying feeling, although less Driving is exciting, but it can make the driving vision better. You don’t have to straighten your upper body to confirm the road conditions every time you turn into an alley. In addition, the driving-oriented cockpit and the towering gear seat completely separate the driver and passenger positions. , the driver should be able to concentrate more on driving, but the co-pilot may be boring.

When driving on the road, you can feel a more comfortable suspension response than common supercars. It will not have a very hard ride like Lamborghini or McLaren and other supercars. It is a supercar that is very suitable for daily driving. In the engine response part, the power is brisk, but the transmission and steering are very intuitive. The sound of the engine is quite satisfactory, unlike the high-pitched effect of Ferrari's deliberate adjustment. People want to keep stepping on the accelerator. Overall, the Corvette C8 Stingray is a very good supercar to get started with. At present, the price of this car is about 6 million yuan. If it is based on its appearance, power, rarity, etc. Measured, this price can be called a supercar with a very high C/P value.

Compared with the European supercars, the Corvette C8 Stingray is more comfortable and easy to drive, and the sitting position is not too low to make urban driving difficult, even if it is driven every day, it will not be very stressful.
