Stock C8 Corvette does a 10 second pass at the drag strip
Watch the C8 Corvette blast down a 1/4 mile in just 10 seconds
The new C8 Corvette is here to show all of those gosh darn Germans and Europeans how sports cars are meant to be built, fast, cool, and cheap.
Oh, how the people sang. Corvette enthusiasts could finally say, "screw your Ferrari, screw your, McLaren, we too can have a mid-engined sports-car with 500 horsepower, but for one third the price!!"
But up until recently, we haven't had too much evidence of the C8's 'real-world' performance, sure magazines had tested it, and YouTubers had modded them, but few had shown what their C8's would actually do in the real world.
YouTuber Sped Phenom initially began 'testing' his C8 on a drag strip, but wheelspin quickly became an issue, as his car struggled to beat a 4.0 second 0-60. Unpleased, he headed out onto the streets to see what his car could really do.
Surprisingly, wheelspin was no longer an issue on the street as the mid-engined Corvette did the sprint from 0-60 mph in just 2.6 seconds! With an equally impressive quarter-mile time of 10.95 seconds.
