Corvette Stingray Concept Basis 2016 Corvette C8

Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Concept

Perhaps you have seen the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray concept. An amazing car which played a role as Autobot “Sideswipe” in the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen could see a future.

According to Autoweek, a senior GM insider indicated that the C7 will be the last of the traditional, old-style Corvettes. Chevrolet is preparing a revolutionary new concept for the C8 Corvette, a mid-engined model capable of matching Europe’s most exotic supercars. Main points of focus are reducing weight, aerodynamic drag and replacing the V8 with a twin turbocharged V6 engine with a total output of 440hp.

We have to wait until 2016 to see the new C8 hitting the streets. Both coupe and convertible models are planned.

    If chevy make this happen they will have the whole automotive’s world attention. The problem with most american vehicles is the styling. We need vehicle in every class that drops your jaws. The foreign car manufacturers beat us on price first, then price and quaility. Now we have to beat them with the same stategy. This vette has can do that….and if they do i will take one in dark gray….
