There is good news for Corvette fans: Chevrolet will release a new Corvette, the New Corvette Stingray soon. The new model is made to be the most powerful Corvette to date. Below are the interesting features that the new Corvette will come with.
Lots and Lots of Carbon Fiber
The latest 2020 Corvette Stingray ZR1 will have lots and lots of carbon fiber. According to Chevrolet, it will have more of those than any other GM’s vehicles. How is it possible? Well, its front splitter and end caps are both carbon fiber. On the side, you can find carbon fiber rocker panels and vents. The steering wheel?Carbon fiber.The dashboard?Also carbon fiber. The hood and the wing are all carbon fiber. The carbon fiber is endless in the new Corvette.
Nice Touch for the Hood
The new Corvette will have a ‘donut’ hood. Yes, the hood’s center will be empty. This is where the engine is placed: straight through the hood. You can’t see this from the outside, though. It can only be seen when you open it. Also, you will know what is going on when you rev the engine since the exposed part of the engine will vibrate and shake. This is a nice touch for the hood indeed.
Now, about the 2020 Corvette Stingray mid-engine. The new Corvette will use a 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 engine. The engine is capable of generating as high as 755 horsepower with 715 lb-ft of torque. This is 117 horsepower higher than the current ZR1 and 105 higher than the Z06, which is a significant improvement. With this power, it will not be surprising if the car is placed in the supercar territory.
Massive Rear Wing
Yes, massive. We mean it. It is that massive it dominates the Corvette’s appearance. The car’s rear wing spreads out past its roofline, which means it will catch the wind and perform its function. While the side really sticks out, it is designed to stay out of the driver’s rear visibility line. So, there is no worry about it. There will be two kinds of wing: high and low.
The Exhaust Note
Finally, the exhaust note. For those who love a loud car, this is it. The new Corvette is very loud when revved. What’s great about it is that its valves open up progressively. This means that the sound will ramp up much more naturally as the engine speed is increased.
New Corvette Stingray Release Date & Price
If you want this car, be patient. So far, there is no official announcement about the exact 2020 Corvette Stingray release date. That said, the new Corvette is scheduled to be released in spring this year. So, just wait for a while.
And speaking of price, there is no official announcement New Corvette Stingray price yet either. We expect the new Corvette to be sold at $120,000 range for the base model and up to $140,000 for the well-equipped one.
Interesting, right? While the details about the car are limited for the moment, as far as we know, it is an exotic, high-performing car. As for the other details of the upcoming New Corvette Stingray, Chevrolet will share them in the next few months.
