Sports cars just don't get much more awesome than the brand new C8 Corvettes. With supercar class performance and looks, advanced features, and the long-awaited rear mid-engine driveline, cars like this 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2LT Z51 are America's best foray into the vaunted list of the world's top exotics. Even with a six-figure sticker-price, these beauties are still considered the 'bargain exotic' of the elite group, although there's certainly nothing 'cheap' about the top-quality of this Stingray. Featuring a blistering 6.2L V8 pumping out 495HP, a floppy-paddle 8-speed gearbox, the highly desired Z51 package that improves performance on the racetrack, and only 79 miles on the clock, this brand-new Corvette is an opportunity to get in on all the fun without having to sweat out a dealership waiting list for months on end. There is much more to this car than can be covered in a brief description, and they really need to be experienced first-hand to be fully appreciated. So, read through the basics, check out the pictures, then come on down to experience this awesome Corvette.
Presented in Ceramic Matrix Gray, this Stingray Z51 came equipped with the 2LT trim package and is an absolute stunner that looks like it's going 100MPH just standing still. The engine's repositioning required a stronger focus on stark aerodynamics and cooling, and the resulting front fascia, side scoops with air intakes, and rear vents out back below the taillights all work to that end. The Z51 package punches up the Corvette's styling even further with the addition of Carbon Flash exterior accents and badges found throughout, LED lamps everywhere, an aggressive spoiler, performance exhaust, and power heated mirrors with integrated turn indicators at the sides, giving the car an even more aggressive look, if that's possible. Of course, as a nearly-new car, it is in showroom-fresh condition with impeccable paint, perfect factory gaps, and not a mark on the slick light gray finish. In fact, the highest praise we can pay any car is that it looks like it just rolled out of the factory, and in this Corvette's case, that's completely true! You won't be able to get the full effect of this car from the photos, but spend some time looking it over and you'll really dig all the little details, from the cool Stingray and Corvette badges throughout, to the unique spoiler out back, to the oversized exhaust tips at the flanks of the rear diffuser, and you get the impression that there's nothing on this car that doesn't serve the purpose of going FAST.
The ultra-luxurious Jet Black leather interior is where the C8 really shines, offering the upgrades that Corvette fans have been begging after for years. And like the rest of the car, it's brand new, without so much as a crease in the driver's seat cushion, and the look is further punctuated with gorgeous stitching and aluminum accents throughout the sporty cabin. The body-hugging multi-directional power GT buckets are comfortable for all-day drives as well as track sessions, and like any modern supercar, the 'Vette comes with neatly placed openings in the seat back for a harness (not that you'd ever need such a thing, right?). As this is a 2LT car, it's loaded with pretty much every option in the book, including the usual power everything, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a powerful Chevrolet Infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, as well as optional heated and ventilated seats, 4G/LTE/Wi-Fi connectivity, and paddle-shifters on the sporty leather-wrapped steering wheel that looks like it came out of a Ferrari. In fact, if not for the badges, you'd likely name every Italian exotic worth its salt before you got to Corvette when describing this high-end cabin. Overhead there's a body-color removable roof panel and because this Corvette is mid-engined, you get some storage both fore and aft, so a longer trip is not out of the question.
The engine in the middle I keep mentioning is a roaring 6.2 liter V8 making a stunning 495HP, and it's all backed by a full factory warranty, so go out and have some fun. The all-new, all-aluminum LS has grown by leaps and bounds since its introduction 20 years ago, with this one making the kind of power we could only dream of back then. Car & Driver registered 0-60 MPH in 2.8 seconds, and this very Z51 package includes a comprehensive list of mechanical, aerodynamic, cooling, and tire upgrades that make this Stingray thrive out on the track. With a faster acceleration time than that of the C7 ZR1 from the prior model, we can probably say goodbye to a front-engine Corvette forever. The engine bay is brand-new, with no modifications other than the factory dress-up, so it can be docile enough for your mom to drive it but get it onto the track and it comes to life in a way you've never experienced before.
