Official: Chevrolet Corvette Stingray goes from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds

Chevrolet has finally released official performance estimates for the new seventh-generation Corvette Stingray, the most powerful and capable standard Corvette ever.

The all-new 6.2L LT1 V8 engine packs 460 hp and 630Nm of torque linked to a 7-speed manual transmission with active rev matching.
When equipped with the available Z51 Performance Package (standard in EU spec car), the new Stingray accelerates from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds, braking from 60 to 0 in 107 feet (32.6 metres), and sustaining 1.03 g in cornering. ¼ mile time is 12 seconds @ 119 mph.

“For the new Stingray, we set out to elevate every aspect of the Corvette’s performance,” said Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer. “Considered alone, the acceleration, braking and cornering performance of the Corvette Stingray is truly impressive. More significant is how well they work together, resulting in a lap time at VIR that places the new Stingray in the upper echelon of all sports cars.”

The EU spec model is priced from £61,495 and will be available exclusively in left-hand drive only.

Performance specs put the new Corvette Stingray right between the Porsche 911 Carrera S models and 911 Turbo, while costing significantly less.
