The new C8 may be a 11.3 second car

A photo is worth 1,000 words, and it may take you longer to look over the picture below than the new C8 dispatches the quarter mile.
c8 11.3 second car

It always comes up when talking about sports cars, and is one of the biggest bragging/selling points, how long does it take to cover the quarter mile. Per a photo posted to CorvetteForum, the mid-engine Corvette will supposedly knock out the quarter mile in just 11.3 seconds at 121 mph. This photo hasn’t been confirmed as legitimate and was apparently taken during the Corvettes at Carlisle event. Per the forum user, the photo is from a booklet that detailed many 2020 Corvette Stingray specs. It’s unclear if this figure is for the base Corvette or for the 5hp more powerful Z51 optioned version.

For comparison, the 11.3 second time is about a full second quicker than the C7-generation Corvette with the Z51 package. The current Z06 does a 10.95 second quarter-mile time at 127 mph. It is rumored that the 2022 C8 Z06 (or it may be called a ZR1) will get a twin-turbo V8 producing 800hp and around 700 lb-ft of torque. It will be interesting to see the quarter mile times with the added 300hp.

Featured Car of the Week

1964 Corvette Convertible

1964 327/300hp, Powerglide Automatic
What Mike likes about this car:
“The 1964 Corvette convertible with an automatic hold a special place in my memory banks. It was the first stingray Corvette I owned back in the late 70s. Mine also had a powerglide transmission, which was not as popular as it is now. It was all I could afford back then, and I was extremely pleased to own it. This prime example spent a lot of time getting restored in our service department and is truly a stingray worth owning. Stop by for a quick spin around the block. “

Happy Throttling!
