Late last year, Chevy announced that production would be delayed until February 2020 due to the UAW strike. It looks like that prediction was right on time, as we see production C8s on the first Monday of the month.
The delay has now come to end as the first 2020 Corvette Stingray coupes have rolled off the assembly line in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The model is powered by a new 6.2-liter LT2 V8 that produces up to 495 hp (369 kW / 502 PS) and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm) of torque. The engine is connected to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic which enables the car to rocket from rocket from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 2.9 seconds and run the quarter mile in 11.2 seconds at 121 mph (195 km/h). Even without the optional Z51 Performance Package, the model hits 60 mph (96 km/h) in three seconds flat revealed by carscoops
All this mind-boggling performance can be had for $59,995, and the cars capable of all of it will be out on the roads soon.
