Design

A mid-engine masterpiece

When you completely re-imagine a car as iconic as Corvette, you get a beautifully sculpted mid-engine sports car that makes a powerful statement. Not your everyday car, but a car you want to drive every day. One that’s all new, with just one part carried over from the previous generation. And with aerodynamic components integrated throughout, its gorgeous form is functional.

Style points

  • Door handles and the hatch and hood releases have been hidden for a perfectly clean appearance and improved aerodynamics
  • The all-new LT2 V8 engine is visible through a rear hatch window
  • Ultra-light 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels
  • Rearward engine allows for a lower cowl, hood and steering wheel for the utmost in forward vision

A new profile in power

The mid-engine configuration provides incredible visibility, responsiveness and driving feel. The new engine placement provides rear weight bias, meaning more power is directed to the rear wheels where it matters most. And with the windshield now over the front wheels, there’s improved down-force without the need for a front air dam.

Racing-Inspired Steering Wheel

Designed for maximum visibility and comfort, this flat-top and flat-bottom steering wheel includes large paddle shifters, audio controls, a Z-Mode button and more.

Vertical Climate Controls

This fighter jet-inspired layout puts climate and available heated/ventilated seat controls right at your fingertips and is positioned lower in the cockpit for greater visibility.

Storage

The center console is covered, opens with the push of a button and locks when the vehicle is locked. Inside the console, you’ll find two USB ports and an audio input jack. Additionally, a locking glove box allows you to safely store valuables.

Ultra-Thin Air Vents

The clean appearance of the cockpit-style interior is uninterrupted due to the use of ultra-thin air vents.

The driver’s domain

Every detail is designed to provide a natural and immersive driving experience that’s tailored to you. Each button is exactly where it needs to be for comfortable, intuitive use. And you’ll be comfortably in command with performance-inspired seats.

Performance

A heart that’s always racing

What happens when you set out to improve upon a storied legacy of small block engines? You get the all-new 6.2L LT2 V8. A no-compromises powerhouse that’s been architecturally transformed to sit lower for improved handling.

Corvette delivers 495 horsepower¹ and 470 lb.‑ft. of torque¹, making it the most powerful production Stingray ever.¹

¹Requires available performance exhaust or Z51 Performance Package

Adorned with a Corvette insignia, the composite intake manifold has 8 equal length runners of 210 mm in length to maximize torque and airflow for every cylinder. This assembly also uses an 87 mm throttle body.

Performance stainless steel headers run directly into split volume catalytic converters, which are packaged for maximum efficiency. This combination enables high airflow while enabling Corvette to meet stringent emissions standards.

Oil is pumped from the engine using three scavenge pumps, ensuring oil quality and flow to critical areas occurs during high g-force cornering.

Every part had to earn its way onto this car, and the standard dual-clutch transmission is no different. It features lightning-quick shifts, combining the smoothness of an automatic with the action and control of a manual. And since there’s no deceleration between shifts, your lap times will benefit too.

This next-generation damping system reads the road every millisecond and adapts in as little as 10–15 milliseconds. An innovative suspension fluid contains metal particles that align and become rigid in an instant, giving you the confidence and control to push harder while staying planted. New for 2021, Magnetic Ride Control is available without the Z51 Performance Package (FE2).
