Chevy Corvette 2020 will slow you down if you do not close the trunk

It turns out that the designers of the new generation sports coupe Chevy Corvette made it so that the car will not accelerate more than 132 km / h with an open front trunk.

Chevy showed the Corvette C8 generation sports coupe last July. Automakers often highlight the biggest and best features of a car during its debut, leaving a small portion to the end. We already learned a lot about the new Corvette and its many features, but almost 10 months later we still find new chips. We learned about a new unusual function from the foreign edition of GM Authority. When the front trunk is not closed, the car automatically limits its maximum speed to 131.966 km / h.

 Obviously, you should not travel on the highway at a speed of 120.701 km / h when the tailgate is not locked.

 It is reported that the happy owner of a sports coupe found out about this “trick”. The car’s reference manual says that “at speed” the front luggage compartment, which is not locked, can fully open. This can lead to the fact that the trunk “stands” in front of the windshield and completely closes the view to the driver – which in turn can lead to an accident. The manual says: “Always completely close the hood before driving.”

Fortunately, Chevy warns drivers if the trunk stays open. A warning message appears in the instrument cluster. It is worth noting that the Chevy Corvette 2020 model year has a huge number of such restrictions. For example, the engine underestimates its power and, accordingly, the number of revolutions during its break-in period.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that this buggy is made from the sports Chevy Corvette generation C5. A very unusual buggy is being sold at a foreign auction – the car is made of a Chevy Corvette C5 generation sports coupe. Cars for sale at a starting price of $ 15,000
