In the C8 Stingray model, the US sports car icon Corvette creates a real revolution: For the first time in the almost 70 year tradition of the vehicle, the engine is no longer in the front, but instead is installed in the middle of the vehicle frame. This lowers and repositions the centre of gravity – a modification which directly affects the vehicle’s handling: The coupé thereby becomes significantly more agile. The Corvette’s above-average performance data has always been impressive. Its approx. 500 HP V8 engine brings it from 0 to 100 km/h in about three seconds, and the speedometer needle goes up to an incredible 312 km/h. On the siku model, the doors open on both sides and the bonnet also opens. This provides a clear view of the detailed engine, which is installed directly behind the seats. The vehicle’s wheels can be changed.
