2020 Corvette C8 review: see how quick it is 0-60mph + 1/4mile... And the shocking UK price!

Need help buying your next car? Click bit.ly/Help-Me-carwow and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
It’s time for another first for Mat and the carwow team - We’ve got our hands on a Corvette! But it’s not just any Corvette… It’s the all-new Corvette C8, and it’s the first mid-engine Corvette since the original model was released back in 1953!
It was first revealed back in Summer 2019, and when you look at the specs, it’s no surprise we’ve been dying to get our hands on one! With a 6.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8, the Corvette will be able to put down 496hp and 637Nm!
Sounds pretty good, right? But that’s not all… It’ll only cost $62,000 - less than an AMG A45 S!! So what do you think - is this all-new sports car worth the ‘cheap’ price? Keep watching to find out!
Thanks to Clive Sutton for lending us the Corvette for this review - www.clivesutton.co.uk/

    Speed Phenom can hit 0-60 in 2.8 seconds in his [stock] c8, so if you're not under 3 seconds, you must not be doing what he's doing on the launch. Ask him about it.

    The Brits Crack me Up.....The Corvette was not "Broken In" yet (First 500 miles torque limited) and Mat did not put the car into the proper "launch Mode" sequence and he didn't warm up the tires.....IF you do these things the 0-60 time will be much quicker.

    Hi Mat you didn’t hit the 0-60 time of 2.9 seconds because you didn’t launch it correctly. What you need to do is press the traction control twice and COMPETITIVE MODE will flash up on the screen, then when you launch it you should achieve 2.9 seconds with you and a passenger or if in the car on your own you should achieve 2.7 seconds! Oh yes and make sure the nose is down!

    If the Vette is still in the break-in period it won't give you all the power the car is capable of producing. Maybe that had some effect on the 0-60 time. If it was past break-in I have no excuses.

    There is an automatic rev limiter engaged until after 500 miles, then it turns off. That's why you're not getting sub 3 second 0 - 60 times. There are other videos that show what happens once the 500 miles is reached.

    The car will actually do 2.9 sec 0 to 60. The car is purposely defined for the first 500 miles to break it in. About 70 to 80% of the power. Get over 500 miles and do it again.
