The eight generation Corvette was announced a few months ago, but it won’t go into production until February 2020. However, if you were waiting for the production to begin so you can order one, we have a bad news for you: the entire production run of the 2020 Corvette C8 is already sold out, said Barry Engle, president of North America for General Motors.
Some loved it, some hated it, but no matter what, the mid-engined Corvette caught a lot of attention. However, no matter what, the Corvette C8 impressed a lot of people. Enough that despite the $59,995 stating price, 40,000 units of the future Corvette were already spoken for.
As a reminder, the Corvette C8 is powered by a brand-new V-8 engine called LT2. It delivers a total of 490 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque – or an extra 35 horsepower over the Corvette C7. It can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in under 3 seconds and goes up to a top speed of 194 mph (est.).
If that doesn’t sound too good for you, do not worry about it: Hennessey has plans to develop a 1,200 horsepower version of it!
