The mid-engine Corvette was probably the most anticipated car of the last decade and it’s easy to see why. It is a V8-powered, mid-engine sports car with about 500 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, a dual-clutch transmission and head-turning looks, all under $ 60K when it is released. You will be hard pressed to find this type of performance bargaining elsewhere. As good as the price was, a win from Omaze sounds even better.

Here is what we said about the mid-engine Corvette in our first-drive review:
“The Corvette Stingray we drove to Spring Mountain, pictured above, is equipped with the Z51 track package. It features an electronic limited-slip differential, larger Brembo brake with four-piston monoblock caliper, improved cooling, Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, a fixed axle ratio, performance exhaust, front splitter and two-piece rear spoiler. 400 pounds of downforce, and track-tuned FE3 suspension (base is FE1 and no FE2) that replaces springs, waybars, dampers and electronic calibration. You can improve all of this with the optional $ 1,895 FE4 magnetic suspension, a larger wing, and a pair of upgraded seats. While we didn’t get a chance to try the $ 1,495 mid-grade GT2 seats, we recommend trying out the $ 1,995 top-of-the-line competition sports seats before placing your order – both of your autoblog test drivers have slim sides and uncomfortable tweaks under the seats. The standard GT1 seats (pictured below) were good in that case and still provide adjustable side ballasters that keep us on track adequately. The lower roof and roll structure make this pair of headroom problems for the 6-foot-plus driver, especially with a helmet on the track.
“A lot has been done that the C8 is not available with a traditional manual transmission, but it also lacks a traditional automatic. Truth be told, both will be out of place which is effectively a mid-engine supercar capable of blazing from zero to 60 in 2.9 seconds. On track, the new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic manual made by GM and Tremec is smart enough to move most of the time at the right time, but there were still some weird downshift choices and moments when the pedals needed to be pulled. . This practically never happens when using Porsche PDK or Mercedes AMG’s automatic manual, but it is a critique of the degree of excellence. GM and Tremec should be commended for their efforts.
“Likewise the Z51 package should have the greasy brambo brakes that took them in the lap after pounding while maintaining their reassuring paddle feel. The paddle itself is nicely positioned for left-foot braking, which is not the case with Porsche. “
