The arrival of Chevrolet’s eighth-generation, mid-engine Corvette happened during an unprecedented time in modern history – it coincided (most unfortunately) with the arrival of the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic, which impacted the entire planet in a matter of just a few, short months, caused the world’s economies to come to a grinding halt, including production of the 2020 Mid-Engine Corvette Stingray.
Even with such a controversial and ever-changing narrative behind its inaugural year of production, there is little doubt in anyone’s mind that the 2020 Mid-Engine C8 is one of the best Corvettes ever produced by Chevrolet. The 2020 Stingray features Chevrolet’s next-generation 6.2-liter, small-block, 6.2-liter, naturally-aspirated LT2 V8 engine. The LT2 engine produces 495 horsepower (369 kW) and 470-lb-ft (637 Nm) of torque when equipped with the C8 Stingray’s optional performance exhaust.
