The C8 Corvette featured Chevy’s next-generation LT2 engine, a 6.2-liter, naturally aspirated, small-block V8 engine. The engine was rated at 495 horsepower (369kW) and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm) of torque. This is an unprecedented amount of horsepower and torque for a base-level Corvette coupe or convertible. During its introduction, GM claimed that it has fastest 0-60 time of any entry Corvette ever — under three seconds when equipped with the Z51 Performance Package.
