It’s time for another first for Mat and the carwow team - We’ve got our hands on a Corvette! But it’s not just any Corvette… It’s the all-new Corvette C8, and it’s the first mid-engine Corvette since the original model was released back in 1953!
It was first revealed back in Summer 2019, and when you look at the specs, it’s no surprise we’ve been dying to get our hands on one! With a 6.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8, the Corvette will be able to put down 496hp and 637Nm!
Sounds pretty good, right? But that’s not all… It’ll only cost $62,000 - less than an AMG A45 S!! So what do you think - is this all-new sports car worth the ‘cheap’ price? Keep watching to find out!
Thanks to Clive Sutton for lending us the Corvette for this review - www.clivesutton.co.uk/

  • Just so everyone knows, i'm pretty sure he wasn't able to achieve the 2.9s 0-60 because the car was still in its break in period with less than 500 miles. The redline was a mere 4500rpm and you could hear it early shift. Once the 500 miles are completed, the redlines goes up to 6500rpm. Pretty sure that was a major factor in those acceleration runs.

  • Put roof on when doing a 0-60 test? Also there's a break in point of 500 miles set, so after 500 miles the times will be a lot more competitive.

  • The 0-60 times are so bad because it's below 500 miles. Look at the redline at 14:10. It's in the break in period. The car increases redline after 500 miles and begins to really perform

  • I do have to say car makers 0-60 are done on perfect strips with special roads and grip ect on a nice hot day ect ect so on the road it does get slower than what’s written, taken to a drag strip and the time will be shorter

    Andy ParkAndy Parkיום לפני
  • Ha ha they couldn’t even match the stitching lines on the panels and it is wonky on the straight bits. Detailing and quality is not a strong point on any American car. Wouldn’t mind one though 🤔

  • Brake rotors looked grooved in video. Demo car that was abused and thrashed to no end. Brake feel is adjustable because it’s electronic. Car in the right hands properly broke in and setup will do 2.8-3.0 0-60 time. I see no incentive for GM to maintain car to only have people to flog it the next day.

  • It does not cost £132,000 to buy the car and pay import taxes to the UK. The import taxes are this. Shipping, about £700. Import Duty 10% of the price you paid for the car. Then the Duty is added to the price and you pay 20% on top. If the car cost £60,000 (adjusted dollars to pounds) You pay 10% which is £6,000. That £6,000 is added to what you paid, which is £66,000. Then you pay 20% of that, which is £13,200. You total tax cost is £19,200, which is a total price of around £80,000, not £132,000.

  • Matt, you did a very good review. But, as many have probably said, GM limits the performance (and RPMs) during the first 500 miles. So, your 0-60 speed will go down to as low as 2.8 - check other reviews.

How bad did you do? 2.6 seconds ilworld.info/flow/fICS0F_ddWTWmGE/wyd-w Here is 2.7 seconds ilworld.info/flow/pXl6u5jdgaPOnGU/wyd-w

  • Hi Mat you didn’t hit the 0-60 time of 2.9 seconds because you didn’t launch it correctly. What you need to do is press the traction control twice and COMPETITIVE MODE will flash up on the screen, then when you launch it you should achieve 2.9 seconds with you and a passenger or if in the car on your own you should achieve 2.7 seconds! Oh yes and make sure the nose is down!
