2020 Chevy Corvette review: Testing the $59,995 C8 Stingray - CNET
Sep 11, 2020 1 min, 33 secs
Spoiler alert: Chevrolet's fabled $60K C8 Corvette is the performance bargain of the year.

More than its 3-second 0-to-60-mph time, its 1.0 G of cornering grip or the fact that, you know, its engine sits behind the cockpit, the craziest thing about Chevrolet's new C8 Corvette Stingray is that everything I just mentioned comes on a wildly styled sports car that costs $59,995 -- including the delivery fee.

Real quick, though, I need to be honest: I kind of figured the $59,995 Corvette would be the car world's white whale.

The base Corvette 1LT has the same 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 as every other Stingray, with 490 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque.

Even on its stock all-season tires, the wide, 305/30-section rear rubbers simply claw into the pavement and shoot the Stingray forward.

The V8 sounds freakin' awesome on full boil near its (relatively low) 6,500-rpm redline, even without the performance exhaust.

The key thing you miss out on with the base Corvette is the almighty Z51 pack, which includes larger Brembo brakes and Chevy's Magnetic Ride Control suspension with adaptive damping and performance traction management tech.

The only big difference is that cars without the Z51 performance pack lose the rear wing, and while I'm normally a spoiler-delete kind of guy, I kind of think the Corvette needs it.

I'll go on record as saying I think the Stingray is pretty ugly from the dead-on rear and rear three-quarter views.

The Corvette kind of needs the Z51's wing to make the rear end work, but even without it, the Stingray will never fail to turn heads.

Taken as a whole, however, the 2020 Corvette Stingray 1LT is a sports-car bargain that's absolutely unmatched.

Chevrolet's more expensive versions offer more creature comforts and widen the performance envelope, sure, but I'll be damned if this base Corvette isn't hugely impressive in its own right.
