The new Corvette’s 6.2-litre direct injection V8 engine produces 455bhp at 6000rpm, with a whopping 460lb ft of torque available at 4600rpm, though both figures climb by five if you specify the optional Z51 performance pack. This enables the Stingray to complete 0-60 in 3.8sec, on its way to a top speed of around 190mph.
