2020 Chevrolet Corvette revealed in full

The eighth-generation 2020 Chevrolet Corvette has been revealed, finally confirming one of the worst-kept secrets in motoring. It's official, the new Corvette is mid-engined. Nestled behind the cockpit in the 'base' Stingray is a 6.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8, powering the rear wheels through a new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. With 370kW of power and 637Nm of torque, the new 'Vette will hit 60mph (97km/h) in less than three seconds from standstill.
