The wait for the European versions of the new mid-engine Corvette Stingray came to an end. The new Corvette was available for European customers in October of 2021. The very first customers received their launch edition coupes and convertibles while sportscar enthusiasts who have not yet placed their order can as of now specify their individual Corvette version tailored to their preferences. They can choose between two trim levels and more exterior and interior options than ever before on any previous Corvette generation. And for the first time in Corvette’s history, customers in the UK can get their factory-built coupe or convertible with the steering wheel on the right side.
Core and center of the new Corvette Stingray is Chevrolet’s latest-generation 6.2l LT2 Small Block V-8, the only naturally aspirated V8 in its class. Allied to the Z51 package’s performance exhaust system and a new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, it delivers in the fully homologated European version featuring a gasoline particulate filter 482 PS which is 354 kW @ 6,450 r p m and 613 Nm which is 452 lb-ft @ 4,500 r p m of peak torque. This powertrain makes the new mid-engined Corvette the most powerful Stingray of all time. The standard sprint from 0-100 km/ is done in 3.5 seconds and top speed is 296 km/h.
