Watch the C8 Stretch Out its Legs and Hit 194 MPH by Sebastien Bell September 4, 2019 Share Comments As we found out recently, the C8 Corvette has some very impressive performance figures. Along with a sub-three second 0-60 time, a top speed of 194 mph means the first mid-engine Corvette lives up to its supercar looks. But have you ever wondered if the figures that automakers quote are, you know, legit? Chevrolet wants you to stop wondering and has put out a video of its latest Corvette running all the way up to its top speed. The video also reveals that the Corvette’s digital speedometer is a little modest, posting speeds that are three or four km/h lower than the, presumably more accurate, speed being tracked on the laptop in the passenger’s lap.
