Testing The 2020 C8 Corvette To Its Limits At Thunderhill West Racetrack

Many anticipated the arrival of the eighth-generation Corvette in 2020. After all, Chevrolet promised us with a new and much improved Corvette that borrows inspiration from European sports car. Indeed, the C8 Corvette proved worthy of its hype. With incredible price point, new design, eight-speed automatic, and a mid-engine setup delivering 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, the car is certainly fantastic!

Putting the C8 C0rvette in the hands of a professional, the car becomes a true track weapon. Travis Okluski, from Road & Track, lapped a 2020 Corvette around the Thunderhill West, a tricky California track. Watch the video to see just how fast the mid-engine Corvette really is when pushed to its limits by a professional driver.
