    The 2020 Chevy Corvette’s Top Speed Is Nearly 200 MPH

    The 2020 Chevy Corvette’s Top Speed Is Nearly 200 MPH
    Another fun fact? The fastest C8 Corvette is the cheapest, but it isn’t the quickest. Let us explain.
    Cad and Driver

    • The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8's top track speed is claimed to be 194 mph.
    • That top speed applies, for now, only to the base mid-engined Corvette Stingray.
    • Versions equipped with Chevy's optional Z51 performance package achieve a lower top speed.

    Chevrolet dropped a brief mention of the all-new mid-engined Corvette Stingray's top speed into a press release about the sports car's price. So, as you can imagine, we took notice. As impressive as it is that the C8 Corvette starts under $60,000, that sub-$60K model is said to be capable of 194 mph

    Oddly enough, that top speed applies (so far) only to the entry-level 2020 Corvette. Models equipped with Chevy's optional Z51 performance package achieve a lower, undisclosed top speed due to the added drag from its downforce-enhancing aerodynamic bits. The payoff for more downforce is, typically, greater drag—a parasite on cars' high-speed abilities if not offset by more engine power.

    So, why would anyone opt for the Z51 kit if it means living with a top speed south of 194 mph? That's easy: the Z51-equipped C8 Corvette, like the Z51 models that came before it, should offer a boost in other, everyday performance metrics. That model is likely to stop shorter, grip harder, and change direction more readily, all while providing additional engine and systems cooling for weathering on-track abuse.

    "Amazing" is all that needs to be said about the C8.

    Hmmm, interesting. Doing a quick search, I see the Hellcat Charger widebody has a top speed of 196, and the Hellcat Challenger Redeye tops out at 203 mph, and those are both 4500 bricks. I'd have hoped that the new mid-engined, lighter, aerodynamic C8 even as the base model would beat out even the top level performance variants of the competition. I'd think the design would have made hitting 200 a piece of cake given the aero differences. Guess not.

    The logical side of me is fine with it, it does take the FCA's around 800hp to eek out a few more top end mph's, that's over 50% more hp than the base engine on the Corvette. And, as the article said, not many people experience the top end on their vehicles, especially cars like these. I find the 0-60 times to be a lot more compelling!

    Now the not-logical side of me wants the base mode Vette to beat out these Hellcats!

    You really thought that?

    Hellcat Redeye = $73k and 790 HP
    Corvette C8 = $60k and 490 HP

    300 HP only gets you 9 additional MPH?

    Uhh, yeah, I guess you don't follow high speed runs, standing miles, etc? At around 200 mph, the wind drag is immense, and suddenly 50 hp doesn't do as much as say 100 mph. It's well known that the required horsepower to go higher speeds at 200+ mph goes up exponentially, the horsepower increase to gain 5mph at 100 mph probably would only gain 2-3 mph at 200. Plus, the Challenger is a freaking 4500 lb brick, it's got a major aero disadvantage at 200 mph, versus the new C8 which absolutely has a MUCH lower drag coefficient, and 1200 less lbs to push through the air.

    It looks like the 2007 Z06 had a top speed of 198 mph? I'd expect this much needed switch to a mid-engined platform would yield more impressive results, I think blowing away it's 13 year old 505 hp predecessor would have been expected.

    So sorry, no, I'm not blown away yet. We're told that this change to mid-engine was required to up the performance game, and I'm still waiting for proof that this was justified. I can't see that justification. But I can see plenty of ways to jack up the ATP by $50k through the accessories catalog, at least we know that.

    But all these performance cars are illogical, nobody needs these at all. As stated above, there is 300 more hp to the Challenger, but it is a 4500 land yacht/brick.

    I'm just disappointed as I'm a performance/numbers based guy, not a colored seatbelts/logo'd car cover/carbon fiber accents guy. We were told mid-engine was what they needed to do because they were performance limited. I expected this to absolutely blow away past Corvettes, and the competition, even with the base model. I'm just disappointed that it's so far after the debut, and we don't really know any important performance comparisons/numbers.

    Perhaps the Z06 and ZR-1 versions will crack the 200 MPH benchmark, I'm expecting that outcome.

    The 2007 Z06 is lighter, more hp, and more than likely less drag/aero downforce. Just my 2cents...

    I'd definitely hope so. I also definitely expect those cars to beat the ACR Viper on the 'Ring. If the C8 in any form cannot, then this "our performance is limited because of the front engine" statement has been a lie.

    Higher by what, 8 hp? And there may be a 2-300 hp weight difference, but that should make the 1200 lb difference to the Challenger Hellcat much more impressive if that 2-300 hp is keeping the C8 down. We've just been led for years to think that the mid-engine change will set the performance world on fire, I'm just waiting to see proof of that. I'm not saying that the Z06 or ZR1 wont be a badass car, but I've got to say I'm a bit underwhelmed so far on the base Vette. The only bragging point I ever read so far is that it's "mid-engined" with nothing to back up why that's so awesome.

    Mid-Engine is more about handling balance. Nothing to do with top end. Downforce, HP, coefficient of drag, and gearing effect top end.

    I'm aware of that, my point still stands that there is no data or anything to win me over that this new C8 is the end all performance car. It's what, a month after the launch and all we really know is how to accessorize and increase the ATP price of this car? All we have is a sub-3 second 0-60, and a top speed number? Like I've said over and over again, I'm a numbers guy, show me that it works. Remember when the Z28 came out and we had that awesome video of the Camaro tearing up the Nurburgring in the rain, while setting new records? I played that video on my home theater at least 6 times. Where's that for the C8? Demon launch was awesome, and I think should be the benchmark for all performance car launches, it had all performance numbers at launch, why can't we expect the same out of Corvette?

    I know, you'd only be blown away if it had a 12" screen in the dash.

    So how many sub 500 hp cars break the 200 mph mark? Any?

    And does the Vette strike you as more of a drag strip car or a track car? Wanna bet on whether the base C8 can spank the Redeye around a track?

    So how many sub 500 hp cars break the 200 mph mark? Any?

    And does the Vette strike you as more of a drag strip car or a track car? Wanna bet on whether the base C8 can spank the Redeye around a track?
    LMAO! Why is it that the only people that can't shut up about the 12" touch screens are the GM fan boys? I don't care that Ram has a 12" screen, I'd buy the 8.4" screen honestly. But choices are SOOOO turrible!

    So a performance car launch, a month after the fact after that actually, with no hard numbers on performance is okay with you? To turn things around... the only thing we do know about the C8 are the blingy items like the colors you can get your seatbelts in, the stitching, probably some embroidered jackets, tack on carbon fiber junk... so non-essential stuff is okay to you when you're talking about the Corvette and GM right? So to make sure I get this... the 12" screen is stupid on Ram, but you're okay with all the Fast-N-Furious ATP adders that is the only thing we know about the C8, right? Gotcha. Your hypocrisy knows no bounds. Here I am asking for PERFORMANCE NUMBERS. I've said it MANY times. Did you not read that? Show me one post ANYWHERE where I praise how awesome the 12" screen is, and how I MUST HAVE IT????

    And good thing the Challenger isn't a sports car then, and is a muscle car now is it? As I said before since you don't seem to keep track good... I'm eagerly awaiting to see what the C8 can do against the ACR.

    Well, maybe but with a sub 3 second 0-60 (versus the pricier hellcat 3.4s) it is not a slowpoke. Predictions are around 2.5S is the best it will be able to do with RWD only just due to tire friction limits. I have not seen skid pad or braking numbers yet, but expect them to blow away anything less than 100K.

    The ACR is a serious track car. Head to head against the base model C8 Z51 Stingray, I would put my $$ on the ACR. The ACR is in GT2/3 territory. Lets wait for the Z06 then revisit this. The C8 Stingray is faster than the C7 Stingray.
    Straights are for fast cars, corners are for fast drivers.
