2021 corvette c8 stingray convertible 3lt z51 is insanely amazing sport car...
Here's the 8th generation Chevy Corvette and I'm going to take you there today. During the tour of this vehicle we are going to review the exterior interior. I'm going to show you some of the cool features inside this vehicle and finally take you for a ride with me. so if you're ready, let's go, drop in, let's get personal here in this car. I have to tell you a couple of things that I love. First of all, the design of this car is absolutely incredible. an Italian
sports car, but the lights look how nice the aerodynamic low beam is and look what happens when you press the car unlock, first the turn signal flashes and then this LED strip lights up and it progressively gets brighter and brighter bright just so you know the car is unlocked now it has the full LED lights here at the bottom here the whole setup here typical of a race car it has those huge air intakes here this is completely open look you can see the radiator here and then you can see this trim piece which is carbon fiber, as well as this trim piece here which is basically the glossy black cameras on both sides of the corvette written here, a little bit of that matte gray plastic here and those typical carbon fiber wings. corvette with the checkered bridle on one side and the chevy trunk on the other side.
What's also cool here is that it sits pretty low to the ground, so many of you might say, "I'm going to scrape that bumper every time I get on." Well, guess what Corvette thought about that. Chevy thought about it and they equipped it with an almost two inch axle lift, so what does it mean that every time you get here you can raise this vehicle up to two inches and then it will memorize it, it can memorize one of a thousand memory locations and every time you stop in the same area, it will automatically do it for you now, so that's roughly the front of this vehicle, now let's see what's here and you.
You might think, hey, it's an engine, right, no, this is the first corvette that has the engine in the middle. Well, now there have been attempts to make the Corvette rear-engined, but up to this point you don't know that it actually came off, so how do you do it? open this thing, you can open it one of three different ways, one of them in this new remote, it has the front trunk and the rear trunk to open, but if you don't have the remote and the car is unlocked, all you What you need to do is go under the light, here's a little button, okay, that opens up the storage area and let's see how deep it is, so normally we walk over to the engine compartment and here in front, you can see there's a little bit of storage and what do we have, it's pretty deep storage.
Well, here you have some netting and a couple of different bags that you can close, but what else is in here? I'm not really sure why. There is an outlet in the storage, unless you want to put a cooler in here, you might want to put a cooler in here and plug it in and keep it nice and cool, and also federal regulations require manufacturers to install it as an exhaust. hatch, so in case anyone is not sure how that would happen, but someone would be locked in the side of this vehicle, they can press this button.
It's good, it glows in the dark and they can get out of here from inside, okay, your windshield. windshield washer fluid right here and that's it, you can't really see anything up here now, which is also cool, look at the size of this, this is like a broken egg, almost no, they didn't straighten it out, they made it look, look , look. They did this with this kind of zig zag on the front trunk which actually looks pretty cool and this one here has those racing stripes all over the car and let's also take a look here, it has those
stingraygraphics right on the side stripes of race on the side of this vehicle, well guys, this is the side profile and take a look at it.
I should probably get out of the way so you can enjoy it and admire the profile of the site. Now it's typical of a
sport. vehicle and because the engine is actually right here, right in the middle of this car, these are functional air intakes, the air comes in and helps cool the engine. What's also very interesting about this is that there are no door handles anywhere here. There's a little door handle right under here that you can basically push and open the door. This is the electronic button here, so what will happen if you run out of battery by the way?
You don't have a remote control and how do you get into this car? Well, there's a little keyhole right on this side, here I'll give you a little close-up in a moment so you can see it in case you're stuck outside, but you still have that little shutdown that drains the battery. You can actually get into this car, but if you look at the profile of this vehicle, that side cell here, here, the notch is very well outlined, very aggressively designed to be one of a sports vehicle, now the mirrors here are not big , but I have been inside the car, you can see very well from them, they are also very beautiful and sporty in this sense.
You can also see that it's a
convertible, right? You've seen it in that little recorded footage. what i did in front you can open it with the remote the car opens it basically you can press the button from inside but you can also press a button on the remote and actually this top will open it's a hard top convertible and the engineers did this to be as stiff as a regular coupe or almost as stiff as a regular coupe. Now it adds about 80 pounds to the regular corvette so it's going to affect the performance which we'll talk about in just a little bit but let's continue with its design if you take a look at it I love these wheels okay I'm not sure if they came on this vehicle or if they were added because I have seen some corvettes with airplane type wheels.
amazingthose black wheels and they have Corvette recorders here now it also says Corvette on these red brake calipers and it has the z51 here which means it has that z51 sporty appearance performance package if you want. It's equipped with summer tires and this one has Michelin tires, those are summer tires and let's take a look at the sizes on the front because that's interesting 245 by 35 19 on the front, let's see if it's the same on the rear, right? OK? radius 5 30 20 okay, so the rim is 20 versus 19 and the tire width is 305 versus 245. It's a rear wheel drive vehicle, so we want to make sure it sticks to the round as much as possible, for That puts those wide fat tires on the back and a larger rim size too.
It looks absolutely beautiful. Let's see if we can check the trunk here and see how much room there is. Okay, so check the back of this vehicle because I have to. I'm telling you it's one of my favorite parts of this car now. It wasn't like that when I first saw the photos. I thought, yeah, the front is awesome, but the back, come on, what did you guys do with that? Camaro back and put it on this, nothing like this, this is completely its own and when you think of Corvette before, you always think of the round oval lights on the back, they change and put those cool dual functions on the lights, all LED lights.
Turn signals are here, backup sensors. I'm going to press the lock button so you can see how the signal works. Well, see how it goes. It goes progressively from fully lit to off, basically whichever way it's now turning like air. exhaust here these are actually open so the air can come out this beautiful wing this wing makes the back of this car no questions asked I like this if I were to order a corvette I would definitely have one of this now this is a 3 liter pack it is a convertible has the z51 so it has all the amenities you can imagine in this vehicle and you know what we'll talk about the price in a moment but check out the exhaust okay two on each. side two big exhausts on each side now you have this decorative piece here and this is open again this is for air to come out from the inside this is open right here the racing stripes that go across the car from the front to the back and now this It has the rear trunk right here, so we can open it up and see how much room there is on the side here, I guess let's check this, let's check this, they have this little trunk open and it doesn't have much room no, but it only fits the basic purchases, maybe Maybe you can't fit your golf bag in here.
I don't think so, but it's pretty deep, you know when I read about this between both fronts? and vice versa if you were to combine the storage space in cubic feet or cubic inches it would be the same as the previous generation, obviously it's divided and it looks completely different so you know it depends on if you need more space you need another car. so basically okay so Stingray is here the logo is okay and the engine is there okay so normally when I talk to you about the engine you can see this engine but since it's right here and there's no way for us to really get into it.
I'm just going to tell you about this, it's a 490 horsepower 6.2 liter naturally aspirated engine or 495 if you go for the optional z51 package right here, it's got 470 pound-feet of torque and you know, what about the z51? important because it has five extra horsepower, it has the performance exhaust, it has larger wheels and performance tires, and the electronic limited slip differential is also part of that package, so if you're looking to put that car in That track, it's worth the money we spent. I'll talk about how much it cost in a moment, but it's very important to also know that these tested 0 to 60 in under 3 seconds 2.9 is what it was Corvette Chevy says 2.8 for many people I saw the Reviews actually tested it, for which is faster than the previous generation performance models, both the z06 and zr1, which had a lot more horsepower, but because the power is so low to the ground and so close to the wheels, they were able to make for this vehicle to work. better than the other one's performance models, I can't even think about what will happen when they come out with the z06, the zr1 and the performance models for this generation, but let's stick with this one here, what is it?
It is also important to mention that the only transmission available is an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, it is no longer manual. I know it's disappointing for some Corvette owners, but from what I've heard and what I've been able to just drive. This transmission is very good and I will test it once we get it on the road, but before we do, let's take a good look at this, first of all let's see how the door closes, just keep that in mind. that this is frameless, okay, it's frameless, so it's going to sound a little bit different than the normal door, but it still sounds pretty good and we're going to jump in because the interior again has been completely changed.
What's interesting, most of the updates. Or most of the redesigns I base on the previous generation model. Now this is the first one. I think when it comes to the Corvette, they basically wiped the slate clean and designed a completely different vehicle. There is no bolt that is the same. like the previous generation Corvette, which is
amazingand they really did a tremendous job. Just check it out once we get in. You'll probably appreciate it even more, so let me take you on a tour of the interior of this vehicle. and look how nice this finish is, but let's open this up and check the door, so first of all, okay, you can see both stereo, good quality materials, thisMatt, it's a new car, don't break it right away, someone already drove it, it broke then, so you know I'm not too worried about it and now let's see, this is awesome.
It's super fast, it sounds great, it catches up to the cars in front of you even though they had a big lead on me, I love the way it drives, I think it's amazing, but what you get with these packages is that This comes standard. You don't really need to adjust it, it sticks to the road, it's very good. The good thing is also that if you drive less than 35 miles per hour, you can close or open the top, so this is a big advantage. You don't have to stop, you don't have to, you know, locate everything before you close it or open it, here you go.
I only did it while driving extremely fast, very fast, very impressed by the capability of this car and, please note, I am only able to check it on the road within the common area.feel within the speed limit so you know I am only accelerating, but I'm not going to pass to like the top speed. I can only imagine what someone who knows what they are doing and someone who would really appreciate this car would take on. track or, you know, take it somewhere where it's safe to drive at high speeds. This is just a sample and I am completely amazed with what they have done to make this vehicle look and definitely turn. a lot of heads, you know, as people look at me while driving, they say: well, what is it?
They are still not used to the new look of this. It's absolutely incredible. I have to tell you that today I did two cars for Mercedes-Benz of Hoffman Estates, those guys are super nice. I've done two American icons basically a
2021ram 1500 trx 700 horsepower and almost 500 horsepower in this one and I have to tell you if I had the means to buy both cars right now, beyond the truck. being shipped to Florida so this is how impressed I am and I drive a lot of cars here and this is for rolling this is for rolling this is what it does.
I'm kind of glad I don't have this car for a long time. period of time because God knows what would happen I would definitely have a lot of fun with it but definitely give it a big thumbs up guys if you like watching videos like this please help me help you by providing your content with new vehicles by subscribing and Like this channel It really means a lot to me and believe it or not, not even financially, but it helps me get the exposure that I need to have access to vehicles that otherwise wouldn't be available to me, so it's all thanks to you, so thank you .
