What are the power measurements of the Corvette C8 2020 coupe at the dyno?March 13, 2020
Judging by the results of measurements on the dyno stand, the sports coupe 2020 model year boasts a capacity of 440 hp. (503 Nm). The C8 sports coupe motor has a rated engine power of 490 hp. (631 Nm).
In 2019, a Motor Trend torque test showed that the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 produced 558 hp. (416 kilowatts), but later it was discovered that the result was incorrect due to an incorrectly calibrated dynamometer.
Now, when the first deliveries of the long-awaited new generation coupe to the dealerships of the company have begun, it became possible to find out the real performance indicators of the machine. That is exactly what the happy owner of the brand-new Chevrolet Corvette C8 did.
This contour instance of the Chevrolet Corvette C8 generation on the odometer is only 39 kilometers away and the car has just come from a car dealership. Results from the dyno stand show that the 6.2-liter engine develops 440 horsepower and 503 Nm of torque.
For reference, the C8 sports coupe’s serial engine has a rated engine power of 490 hp. (631 Nm). It is worth considering the loss in the transmission at the level of 10.2% for its horsepower and 12.3% for the output torque. It is noteworthy that in first and second gears, the new C8 limits the torque by 25-30 percent for the initial 805 kilometers – the engine break-in period.
Given the fact that Chevrolet has already begun the first deliveries of the sports Corvette C8 to dealerships, expect to see even more such clips in the near future, in which the receiver power of the legendary sports car is checked.
