The C8 Chevy Corvette Is Easily Dominated by a Hennessey-Tuned C7 Corvette Z06

The C8 Chevy Corvette Is Easily Dominated by a Hennessey-Tuned C7 Corvette Z06

That’s hardly a fair duel but this is Hennessey

Unlike Chevrolet, Hennessey isn’t interested in selling stock cars. Hennessey makes money out of its tuning kits, so don’t be so surprised that the tuner pitted a HPE850-imbued C7 Z06 against a factory-spec C8 with the latter not standing a chance. This video reeks of marketing and nothing but marketing.

The 2022 Chevy Corvette Z06 Will Have an Engine on Par With That of the Porsche 911 GT3

The 2022 Corvette Z06 Will Be Naturally Aspirated and High Reving

What if I told you that the 2022 Chevy C8 Corvette Z06 wasn’t going to feature a turbocharged engine? Would you be sad, depressed, or upset? Well, you shouldn’t be, because a new report claims exactly that and it’s very good news. A more potent turbocharged engine will be found in a model that sits above the Z06, but the Z06 will feature a free-breathing, 5.5-liter, flat-plane V-8. Why is this good news? Well, grab a coffee and let me explain.

Chevy Has Recalled The C8 Corvette Over Frunk Faults, But Still Blames Owners

Chevy Has Recalled Your C8 Corvette But It’s Still Your Fault The Frunk Opens Unintentionally – Apparently

Back on July 10, 2020, we told you about the C8 Corvette’s frunk problem – you know; the one where the front hood opens as you’re driving for no reason? Well, it took 5 days for GM to issue a statement, and in that statement, it blames drivers for the Funk opening on its own. Now, just over two months later, Chevy and GM are issuing a recall that apparently affects more than 6,000 2020 model year C8 Corvettes, however, you apparently still don’t know how to properly latch the front hood.

The Australian-Spec Chevy C8 Corvette Won’t Wear a Chevy or Holden Badge

We have both good news and bad news for future C8 Corvette customers from Australia

The Chevrolet C8 Corvette can hardly be called a new car anymore. Sure, it’s the latest Corvette, but as it approaches its first year on the market after getting loads of attention from journos, bloggers, vloggers, and influencers, it’s not new anymore. Unless you happen to live in Australia, that is, where the C8 Vette hasn’t arrived yet. When it does, it will not be sold under the Chevrolet or Holden blazon.

Check Out This 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 As It Rocks Past the 200 MPH Mark

The Corvette C7 ZR1 is still a very potent machine

The Chevrolet Corvette C7 ZR1 is, arguably, an instant classic because it marks the end of an era for the Corvette brand being the last of the front-engined models to sport this famous badge. While we’re waiting impatiently for the go-fast versions of the latest, mid-engined ’Vette, let’s all take a moment to remember just how fast the C7 ZR1 really was.

Watch Randy Pobst Drive the Mustang Shelby GT500 and Corvette C51 At the Same Time

Shelby GT500 vs Chevy Corvette Z61 on the race track: Which car is faster?

The Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Corvette are two of America’s most iconic cars. But they’re also two different animals. The Mustang spent most of its career in the pony and muscle car market, while the Corvette was aimed mostly at sports car and grand tourer buyers. With the Corvette transformed into a mid-engined car for the eighth generation, the gap between these nameplate is even bigger now. But which one is the fastest around a track? To find out, MotorTrend took the range-topping Shelby GT500 and the C8 Corvette Z51 to Virginia International Raceway and put 24 Hours of Daytona winner Randy Pobst behind the steering wheel.

Engineering Explained Exposes the C8 Corvette's 5 Big Flaws and Why They Are Actually Impressive

Engineering Explained Exposes the C8 Corvette’s 5 Big Flaws and Why They Are Actually Impressive

These "flaws" actually make the Chevrolet Corvette C8 better

Recent reports from the NHTSA revealed that the Chevrolet Corvette C8 has a big issue with the front trunk lid, which can open unexpectedly and with no warning. Owners also reported uneven panel gaps, so the new C8 is struggling with a few quality issues. Some have also complained that the Corvette C8 comes with features and tech that aren’t exactly suitable for a modern sports car, such as brake by wire, a pushrod engine, and all-season tires as standard. But the folks over at Engineering Explain claim that these "flaws" are actually impressive features to have. Here’s how they explain it.

GM Blames Drivers for the 2020 C8 Corvette's Frunk Problem

GM Blames Drivers for the 2020 C8 Corvette’s Frunk Problem

Since GM is so known for reliability, the problem must be the driver, right?

Earlier this month I told you about the C8 Corvette’s frunk problem – basically a situation where the frunk, despite being properly latched, would fly open at speed, damaging the car and putting the driver at risk. At the time, every reported incident was pretty clear that there were no visual or audio warnings that the frunk was open. Now, GM is basically saying that it comes down to driver error and that it cannot identify any mechanical issues.

The 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Has a Frunk Problem

At this point is anyone surprised that GM’s latest and greatest has problems?

Back in May we brought you a fun little tidbit about how the C8 Corvette’s frunk acts as a speed limiter. Well, that was a fun twist, but the idea is that if the frunk isn’t securely latched, there are visual and audible warnings inside and the car’s speed is limited to 82 mph. Now, complaints are starting to show up in forums and directly to the NSHTA with claims that the C8 Corvette’s frunk is randomly opening at speed, blocking the view of the driver, damaging the vehicle, and — obviously – creating a very dangerous scenario.

A C4 Chevy Corvette Drifting Under a Trailer? Don't Try This At Home, Kids

A C4 Chevy Corvette Drifting Under a Trailer? Don’t Try This At Home, Kids

This C4 Corvette is proof that you don’t need a new car to drift like a boss

Drifting can be a lot of fun in the proper car and the proper location. But it can also be dangerous, as it requires a lot of skill to fully control a car’s slide around various obstacles.

Drifting under a semi trailer is usually the kind of thing we see in action movies from the "Fast and Furious" franchise, but there are drivers who can perform it effortlessly in real life. Instagram’s @c4drifter is one of those guys and the really cool thing is that he’s driving a fourth-generation Chevrolet Corvette.

This Turbocharged C8 Corvette Is Just As Powerful as a Lamborghini Aventador S

The Chevrolet Corvette C8 is awesome in it of itself. With 495 horsepower on tap in the Z51 guise, the 2020 Vette can set a blistering pace, taking only three seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph. So if a 495-horsepower Corvette C8 Z51 is already capable of such speeds, imagine what a 736-horsepower Corvette C8 is capable of when it goes under the tuning ringer.

Extreme Turbo Systems — the name says it all — recently worked on a bone stock Corvette C8 Z51 with the goal of raising its power to supercar levels. The tuning firm even released a video of the Vette C8 strapped to a dyno rig, undergoing serious testing. The video isn’t particularly exciting, but make no mistake about it, this Corvette C8 Z51 isn’t your typical 2020 Corvette. You might even say that this Vette can give the Lamborghini Aventador S a serious run for its money.
