Specifications of Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C8 6.2 V8 (482 Hp) DCT

General characteristics of Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C8 6.2 V8 (482 Hp) DCT

Compared to the dimensions of competitors such as the Porsche 911 and even the Toyota Supra, the C8 Corvette Stingray Coupe is a lengthy machine, which further accentuates its supercar persona. With a total length of 182.3 inches, the Corvette is almost ten inches longer than the Supra and 4.4 inches longer than the Porsche. Its 107.2-inch wheelbase makes the Porsche 911 Carrera look like an imp. Its width of 76.1 inches (excluding the mirrors) is manageable, but you'll have to bend down low to get inside the cabin, thanks to a height of just 48.6 inches. The track width in the front is 64.9 inches and 62.4 inches in the back. Chevrolet has done its best to keep the weight off: the C8 Stingray Coupe tips the scales at a respectable dry weight of 3,366 lbs.

The engine might have moved behind the seats, but the 6.2L V8 remains true to the Corvette ethos: it's large displacement, it's naturally aspirated, and has eight cylinders. This move has also brought with it some serious performance advantages. The weight transfer on launch to the back wheels gives the C8 Stingray a massive grip advantage over the old front-engined Corvettes, and most are stunned at just how quickly this somewhat "rudimentary" supercar can launch off the line. The horsepower figure of 490 might not seem too impressive by today's standards, but that 465 lb-ft of torque more than closes the gap, helping the C8 Corvette Coupe to sprint from 0-60 mph in around three seconds. The optional Z51 package adds a high-performance exhaust that increases power by five horsepower, along with an electronic LSD, upgraded suspension, and a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. With these modifications, the C8 Coupe will dart to sixty in under three seconds. The quarter-mile line gets crossed in just 11.2 seconds, and those patriotic enough will see a top speed of 194 mph.

Chevrolet hasn't tried to reinvent the wheel when it comes to the C8's powertrain; instead, it has matched up reliable V8 power with a modern transmission, and we must admit, the combination works exceptionally well. Under the engine cover of the 2022 model Stingray C8 Coupe, you'll find an LT4 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine developing 490 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. Chevrolet's choice to go with a naturally aspirated V8 means that it can keep costs low, making the C8 Corvette one of the performance bargains of the decade. Get behind the wheel, and you'll be blown away by just how fast that 490 hp feels; the C8 Coupe bolts off the line with a level of ferocity usually reserved for much more exotic machinery. Our only wish is that the exhaust made a bit more noise, but there is an obvious and easy remedy for that. The DCT transmission offers lightning-fast shifts, and the package as a whole just works well.

What do you get when you build a supercar with a big 6.2-liter V8 engine stuffed behind the rear seats? An expensive fuel bill. In all seriousness, the C8 Corvette Stingray Coupe is a rather heavy drinker, but we've seen far worse gas mileage. The EPA rates that the 2022 'Vette will manage 16/24/19 mpg on the city/highway/combined cycles. That's not bad when you consider that this is a sub-three-second 0-60 mph car with a top speed of nearly 200 mph. Expect to see those numbers drop faster than crispy KFC skin down Cartman's throat when pushed. With an 18.5-gallon tank onboard, the Corvette Stingray Coupe will get you 352 miles outside of New York before the undead masses start to overrun the ill-prepared troops.

Sure, the Corvette is an all-out sports car, but it won't turn away a few chunky boys looking for a good time. There's a surprising amount of space inside the cabin of the C8 Stingray Coupe, even for a 2-seater. Getting in and out isn't a significant problem unless you have an injury preventing you from stooping a bit lower than usual. Once inside, you get a generous 42.8 inches of legroom, which is more than enough for six-footers and above, but the 37.9 inches of headroom could be a problem for the tallest of the tall. The sport seats offer generous support, and you can even opt for a set of more hardcore GT2 or Competition Sport bucket seats, which may cut off the blood supply to the outer organs of larger Homo Sapiens.

The Corvette has been lauded for its practicality, but ever since the engine decided to emigrate, Chevrolet has had to come up with an interesting storage solution. The Corvette features a very European frunk with a total size of 8.6 cubic feet. Pop the engine cover, and you'll also find a smaller trunk behind the motor. You get 12.6 cubic feet in total. This might not sound all that impressive, but you'll still be able to do a decent grocery run or pack for a weekend away with the partner. Rich country clubbers will also be pleased to hear that you can fit a set of golf clubs in the trunk of the Corvette, or the removable targa top for those sunny California days. Sure it's tight, but it offers a lot more than some of the competition. Inside the cabin, the Corvette offers a small storage bin in the center console, as well as a small slot between the seats, a glovebox, and door pockets.
