One of the most anticipated new cars is almost here: The Mid-Engined Chevrolet Corvette. Even after a delay that shoots back its debut a reported six months, fans of the brand – and some knowledgeable insiders – are leaking Corvette's specifications before the 2019 debut. The last picture comes to us by means of MidEngineCorvette Forum which pits the new mid-engined model's measurements against today's ZR1.
Sizewise, the new C8 should be longer than today's C7, although the shaft base of the new model will be about the same size. The current C7 & # 39; s wheelbase extends to 1
For what is worth, these goals are based on spy photos – so they are not an exact science. Chevrolet has not released any official figures on the size of the new C8. But if they are correct, these numbers mean that the C8 Corvette matches almost directly with the Ferrari 488 (length 179 inches, width 77½ inches, height 48 inches) and others like McLaren 650S and Ford GT.
Based on these numbers, the new C8 corvette will be longer, lower and wider than the current model by a few inches around. And we already know that it gets faster too. It can be offered with the same 460 hp (343 kilowatts) and 465 pounds (630 Newton meters) torque V8 out of the box as C7, but could produce upwards of 650 hp (484 hp) and up to 1,000 hp (745 kW) ), depending on the trim.
The new Corvette engine will finally debut next summer. So stay tuned so for more info.
