Hendrick Chevrolet in Hoover, AL is the premier Corvette dealership of the state. Today, the dealership unveiled the anticipated 2020 C8 Corvette. This was the first time that we have seen the C8 in person and it exceeded all of our expectations. As you can imagine lots of people came from all over to see the first mid-engine Corvette.
The car is powered by a 6.2 LT2 V8 that produces 490 horsepower and 470 ft_lbs of torque. The engine is bolted to an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. The C8 can get to 60 mph in under 3 seconds with a top speed of just over 190 mph.
The front trunk is limited in space so packing wisely prior to a long trip is advised.
The interior of the C8 is awesome for lack of a better term. The seats are very comfortable and the dash has a futuristic look to it.
The car is wider in person than it appears in photos. Pictures do not do this C8 Corvette justice. The body lines and stance are amazing when you see it with the naked eye.
The dealership had an array of components displayed around the car that purchasers can choose from.
Several car clubs and Corvette owners brought their toys to the event. It was like a Corvette car meet in the parking lot.
This particular C8 is on tour and will be headed to the next dealership in Flordia.
