General Motors recently unveiled the eighth generation “C8” of its famed Chevrolet Corvette.

Straying from previous front-engined, rear-wheel-drive iterations, the 2020 Corvette “Stingray” utilizes a mid-engined layout for the first time ever. By shifting the weight, the car becomes centered around the driver placing the driver further up in the car closer to the front wheels.

Mid-engined, rear-wheel drive layouts provide many drive and handling benefits: a more balanced weight distribution, added load over the rear wheels to help with traction, visibility improvements, and a more engaging and enveloping connection to the engine’s sounds and functions are just a few of the draws for MR sports cars.

Starting at just $60,000 USD, the 2020 Corvette Stingray will feature a 6.2-liter V8 engine pushing out 490 horsepower. Unfortunately, a manual transmission will not be offered; the forthcoming Corvette will arrive only with a dual-clutch eight-speed automatic transmission controlled by paddle shifters. General Motors is claiming that the new Corvette will be its fastest ever, being able to go from zero to 60 miles an hour in under three seconds if purchased with the 495-horsepower Z51 Performance Pack.

Check out the 2020 Corvette Stingray above and expect the model to go into production at General Motors’ Bowling Green, Kentucky, assembly plant sometime this fall.

In case you missed it, the 720S Ride-On kids car is an affordable way to own a real McLaren.
